Sekulow: No Plans to Release Trump's Written Responses to Mueller

By    |   Monday, 25 March 2019 09:28 AM EDT

There are no plans for releasing President Donald Trump's written responses to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, as they are considered confidential communications, his attorney Jay Sekulow said Monday.

"As a lawyer, you don't waive privileges and you don't waive investigative detail absent either a court order or an agreement between the parties," Sekulow told CNN's "New Day." "It's not a simple wave your hand and we release the document. That would be very inappropriate...that will be a decision the attorney general makes, but I have strong thoughts about that."

Sekulow said there remain serious questions about the Mueller investigation, and that he wouldn't get into whether the Department of Justice is looking into them.

Congress has several capacities to investigate if it wishes but it wouldn't be to the scope of the Mueller probe and it would be "tragic" if investigations are launched, he added. 

"How about spending the time and effort on that for the American people?" said Sekulow. "I think that would be a really good move. I think this has been fully investigated and fully vetted and concluded, and I hope the Congress moves forward."

Sekulow, also on Monday told Fox News' "Fox and Friends," he agrees with another Trump attorney, Rudy Giuliani, that the investigation was brought about to destroy Trump's presidency.

"This whole thing starts with the dossier, the [Christopher] Steele dossier, right?" said Sekulow. "I think what this shows after a two-year extensive investigation after the president said at the outset was correct. There was no collusion. There was no obstruction and we need to move on."
