Having seen this the following can be stated:

The main question is this: Can a sitting President be subpoenaed?
There lines are a bit grey with that one. The first hurdle would be if it is crossing the lines of government and the branches, however, this is not the legislative branch doing such, but the executive branch doing such. The next would be the requirements of such, which the courts would use as a test, based on the prior court case: United States V. Nixon, 1974, in which the court outlined the test based on the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure: That the subpoena seek specific, relevant, and admissible evidence from the recipient. As long as the standards of Rule 17 ( c) have been correctly applied, then there is no reason to quash the subpoena.

But beyond that, the questions leaked are not the questions that Mueller wants answered, those were written by the legal team for Trump, thus Mueller would reject them. If anything Mueller has not been leaking anything nor has his team, so those questions are not valid.

There are questions that need to be answered, and they are carefully crafted, as to find out the truth of the matter. Though if he is wanting to talk to the President, to get testimony, then it is not a perjury trap that is being laid, but confirmation of information that Mueller has.

If Mueller was wanting to hurt or even remove the President, it would not be due to perjury. If that was the case, the every member of congress and most federal employees would be at risk. And I do not believe that members of congress would impeach a sitting president on the grounds of a perjury trap, nor would the public stand for it. I would not, cause all politicians lie, and do it often, or fail to tell the whole truth.

What I am suspecting is that with Mueller wanting to talk to Trump is to end the investigation, and he is the final person to be interviewed. He needs to talk to Mueller, the only question is does he want to do it either the easy way or the hard way? The easy way is to sit with Mueller, as Trump would have his attorneys present to help guide and prevent him from making mistakes. The hard way, and I feel the more damming way, would be for him to fight then and then end up in front of a grand Jury, as then it is just Trump, a jury and a court reporter. And with his propensity to ramble on, would say more than he needs to, that would ultimately either condemn the man or prolong this investigation.

There is a requisition that is beyond the norm here.

I think that must supersede anything else.

You can't make somebody lie.
The real fear is that trump will lie. Because trump lies all the time.
Not that Mueller will trick him.

At this point Trump should simply force Mueller's hand

That is the growing consensus, which is why Giuliani has taken control, and told Mueller, "Here are our conditions. Take them or leave them."

And Mueller brushes his hand near his ear exclaiming "what is that buzzing noise?"

Wow. That's like the worst kind of joke.

Whitewater was Clinton.
