TIGHTENING HIS OWN NOOSE:

Trump says he would speak to Mueller under oath in Russia investigation (Josh Dawsey, David Nakamura and Devlin Barrett January 24, 2018, Washington Post)

People who have appeared before Mueller's team say prosecutors have detailed accounts of events, sometimes to the minute, and have surprised witnesses by showing them emails or documents they were unaware that the team had or that their colleagues had written. One person said Mueller's team has asked about Trump's private comments around key events and how he explained decisions.

"They are looking for a pattern," said this person, who has spoken with Mueller's team and requested anonymity to speak about a federal investigation. 

Among Trump's friends, there is a prevailing view that he could damage himself by testifying under oath because he often misrepresents events and that he is listening to lawyers who are not giving him good advice.
