Response to leftynyc (Reply #18)

20. Jr said an actual lawyer was in the room during this conversation

That represented the Trump family. Since i doubt they were smuggling cocaine, that lawyer was there to provide legal counsel to his clients. Thatís inherently privileged. Mueller canít break that privilege without being able to PROVE, in a court of law, that criminal activity was taking place. And even then, itíd be a tough case.

And from a legal strategy point of view, Mueller doesnít want to talk to the Trumps yet. Thatís what heís going to do last, after heís collected as much info as he can. That way heíll know what questions to ask, what the answers should be, and knows what heíll do if he gets an unexpected answer.
