Trump’s attorney, Jamie Gorelick, told ABC News on Thursday that the Trump Organization has “not yet made any decision” on whether to seek extradition of former President Donald Trump.
Gorelik also said that the United States would not seek extradition from Russia, where Trump’s businesses have been accused of corruption.
Gorenick also said the United Nations Special Rapporteur on human rights and conflict of interest in the US has not yet made a decision on whether Trump should be extradited.
“We’re still looking at the situation,” Gorelitch said on “Good Morning America.”
“We are not seeking extradition from the Russian Federation, but we will be considering our options.”
Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was fired by Trump on Friday after he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia during the 2016 election campaign.
The Trump administration has said Flynn was not responsible for the leaks of confidential information to the media, including the Associated Press.
Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have been dogged by reports of collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential race, as well as the firing of FBI Director James Comey by Trump in May.
Gorelaick said she believes Trump’s resignation is “the only way” to put an end to the Russia scandal.
“I believe it is the only way to bring this matter to a quick and peaceful resolution,” Gorellick said.
The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Trump has been contacted by an attorney for his former national-security adviser, General Michael Flynn.
