Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, a redacted version of which wasreleased publicly Thursday, explains why President Donald Trump wasn’t subpoenaed as part of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. “Recognizing that the President would not be interviewed voluntarily, we considered whether to issue a subpoena for his testimony,” the report reads. The special counsel repeatedly sought to interview Trump. In May 2018, Mueller reportedly threatened Trump’s lawyers that he could subpoena Trump if the White House refused a sit-down interview. Ultimately Trump submitted written answers to some of Mueller’s questions in late November.
