Trump lawyer says president believes Mueller investigation is part of 'witch hunt'

Jay Sekulow didn't answer when asked if Trump would rule out pardons.

"Yeah," Sekulow said on "This Week." "When he talks about the scope and nature of the investigation, he’s concerned about the nature of what’s going on here."

Trump has repeatedly called the Russia investigation a "witch hunt" on Twitter, most recently tweeting last week, "My son Donald did a good job last night. He was open, transparent and innocent. This is the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. Sad!"

But Sekulow said he doesn't believe the investigation will lead to having Trump testify.

"Look the president was very clear, that if it came to that, and I don't think it will, but if it came to that, he will do that," Sekulow told Karl on Sunday. "You asked him the question in the Rose Garden, the president answered it. So, you know, I take the president on this word there."

“I don’t think it will happen,” Sekulow added later. “The president said he would do it if -- yes, at this point we have no indication at all whatsoever of an investigation of the president with regard to any of this.”
