On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) stated that for President Trump, “testimony would be necessary to exonerate himself.” Blumenthal added that because he doubts Trump will testify voluntarily, the president should be subpoenaed by either Special Counsel Robert Mueller or the Southern District of New York.
Blumenthal said, “For Donald Trump, testimony would be necessary to exonerate himself. But, as you know, having covered him, and as the American people know, having watched him, Donald Trump’s connection to facts and evidence is very tenuous. And so, I doubt that he will ever be a witness voluntarily. It will take a subpoena. And there should be one, from the special counsel, or from the Southern District of New York.”
