An attorney for U.S. President Donald Trump stressed Sunday the president's legal team would contest any effort to force the president to testify in front of a grand jury during the special counsel's Russia probe but downplayed the idea that Trump could pardon himself.Rudy Giuliani, in a series of TV interviews, emphasized one of the main arguments in a newly unveiled letter sent by Trump's lawyers to special counsel Robert Mueller back in January – that a president can't be given a grand jury subpoena as part of the investigation into foreign meddling in the 2016 election.The letter is dated Jan. 29 and addressed to Mueller from John Dowd, a Trump lawyer who has since resigned from the legal team.Giuliani also suggested that Trump's lawyers had been incorrect when they denied that the president was involved with the letter that offered an explanation for Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians who offered damaging information on Democrat Hillary Clinton.If Trump does not consent to an interview, Mueller will have to decide whether to go forward with a historic grand jury subpoena.
