His legal team would go to court to prevent any effort to subpoena the president: Trump lawyer

U-S President Donald Trump's attorney said his legal team would go to court to prevent any effort to subpoena the president.

Rudy Giuliani appeared on ABC's "This Week'' on Sunday, a day after it was revealed that Trump's lawyers wrote a secret 20-page letter to special counsel Robert Mueller arguing that the president can't be compelled to testify in front of a grand jury.

Giuliani said they would contest it if Mueller tried.

But, the former New York City mayor suggested that he did not entirely agree with the letter's premise that a president could never be charged with obstruction of justice.

Trump's lawyers also said he has absolute authority over all federal investigations.

Giuliani stressed, though, that Trump had done nothing wrong and could have power to pardon himself if indicted.

And he said the legal team was leaning against having Trump be interviewed by Mueller's investigators.
