I appear on MSNBC on June 2nd. An internal memo was just leaked regarding the White House response to the Russian Investigation regarding Trump. There are many issues vexing the President but the two primary ones that are catching his attention is Mueller's efforts to seek an interview with the President whether he can force it through a subpoena. The other is whether the President can even be prosecuted for obstruction. 

In an extraordinary argument, the President through his lawyers claims that the President is immune from prosecution for obstruction. In other words, he is simply above the law. President Nixon made the same argument but its been almost 50 years since that failed argument was rolled out.  It didn't work then.  Its seem unlikely to work now. 

This is going to be fun.
