Special counsel Mueller wants to ask Trump about obstruction of justice: Sources

The news was the cause of the president's tweet storm Wednesday, sources said.

Negotiations over a potential presidential interview have gone on for months, through several different iterations of the Trump legal team. Current lead attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told ABC News a week ago that his team had submitted a response to Mueller asking to limit the scope of an interview with Trump especially as it relates to obstruction of justice.

"We have a list of questions that are fairly narrowed but we are waiting on the special counsel's response," Giuliani told ABC last week.

Speaking to reporters after an appearance in New Hampshire today, Giuliani said he had received a response from the special counsel’s office without getting into details.

"They took about 10 days and yesterday we got a letter back for them. Now we're in the process of responding to their proposal," Giuliani said.

The president’s legal team declined to comment when reached by ABC News about specific details on the special counsel's responses.
