The News Agency of Nigeria reports that this is yet another major blow to efforts by Trump to have the presidential election results invalidated in battleground states where he lost.
The unexpected plea stemmed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s intensifying investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election and whether Trump’s campaign conspired with Moscow to boost his chances, and put new pressure on the president.
In the memo, reported by the New York Times on Saturday, Trump’s lawyers argued the president could not have obstructed the investigation, given the powers granted to him by the US Constitution.
Trump has repeatedly said he wanted to talk to Mueller, a fellow Republican investigating alleged Russian meddling in the US 2016 election and possible collusion by the Trump campaign.
