On the ABC News program, "This Week," one of the President's attorneys said any effort to force Mr. Trump to talk would result in a legal fight that might get to the nation's highest court.
Sekulow was also pressed on why he also had said that the Trump Tower meeting was about adoption.
"I had bad information at that time and made a mistake in my statement," Sekulow said on ABC, as he said that, "over time facts develop."
As one might expect, Democrats in the Congress were less than charitable in their reaction to the President's Sunday tweets.
In July of 2017, Trump Jr. was forced to acknowledge that the meeting had not been about adoption, as emails showed the subject line was, "Russia - Clinton - private and confidential," offering what was characterized as "Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."
