Trump Attorney: We Will Challenge Robert Mueller if He Investigates Old Real Estate Deals

That would be 'outside the scope' -Jay Sekulow

An attorney representing President Trump in the ongoing investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russia said in an interview published Saturday that his team would challenge special counsel Robert Mueller if the probe began looking at Trump's former business deals.

Politico reported Saturday that Jay Sekulow, a conservative attorney who joined Trump's team in June, said that Trump's attorneys are ready to challenge the legality of Mueller's actions if he detours into anything they consider "outside the scope" of the inquiry, such as looking at old real estate deals the president might have been involved in through his Trump Organization.

“We’d view that as outside the scope of legitimate inquiry,” Sekulow said. “We’d raise it.”

Trump himself has said that any investigation of his personal finances by Mueller would be out-of-bounds.
