STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): The big news yesterday was that the president's attorney, White House counsel Don McGahn sat down with the special prosecutor Robert Mueller's team for something like 30 hours over three different visits. And now you worry that if whatever Don McGahn told the special counsel people, if the president were to sit down with them and his story is different than his counselor's story, he could get in trouble. 

GREGG JARRETT (FOX NEWS LEGAL ANALYST): And Mueller would be disposed to believe the other person and not the president. Mueller has demonstrated time and again he cannot be trusted to be fair and impartial. So, look what he did to [former national security adviser] Mike Flynn. Mike Flynn told the truth and Mueller prosecuted him for lying. So the president runs a very real risk that if he sits down with Mueller, that Mueller will twist the facts and contort the law --  

DOOCY: That's not what lawyer told me. 

JARRETT:  -- and accuse him of lying. And especially now that we know McGahn has testified for over 30 hours before the special counsel. 

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): If his general counsel has already testified for 30 hours is it even needed for the president to sit down with him? Isn't his attorney the voice of the president?

JARRETT:  I would argue that an inferior officer, which is what Mueller is, does not have a legal basis to even question the president exercising his constitutional authority. And where is it written that can you question the president about a non-crime called collusion? And it's no other relevant crimes. It's not conspiracy to defraud the government. It's not a federal campaign election act violation.
