According to The New York Times, President Trump's lawyers have advised him against interviewing with special counsel Robert Mueller despite Trump publicly stating he was "looking forward" to speaking with Mueller under oath. 

[President Trump's] lawyers are concerned that the president, who has a history of making false statements and contradicting himself, could be charged with lying to investigators. Their stance puts them at odds with Mr. Trump, who has said publicly and privately that he is eager to speak with Mr. Mueller as part of the investigation into possible ties between his associates and Russia’s election interference, and whether he obstructed justice.

Many believe refusing to interview with Mueller would have dire political consequences. If Trump has nothing to hide, why wouldn't he speak with investigators?

And if Trump does refuse to interview, there is a strong possibility Mueller would have to subpoena the president.

When asked if Trump should talk to Mueller, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro said "absolutely not" because the interview would be nothing more than "a trap."

Both Anthony Scaramucci and Chris Christie have urged the president not to sit down with Mueller because they also fear Trump will be "caught in a gotcha moment."

But critics still point out, it's only a "perjury trap" if Trump lies under oath.
