字幕対訳

President Trump once seemed eager to sit down with special counsel
Robert Mueller.
特別検察官の聴取に意欲的だった大統領

But according to the new book by veteran Washington journalist
Bob Woodward,
しかしウッドワード氏の新刊によると—

the president’s legal team was so worried he would commit perjury
they held a mock interview session.
法律顧問団が大統領の偽証を恐れて模擬聴取を行った

In it, the president reportedly lied,
大統領はうそや矛盾する発言をして—

contradicted himself and ultimately became so frustrated
he lashed out at his team.
あげくは顧問団に激怒したという

Woodward writes the president’s lawyers then sat down
with Mueller and described the practice session.
法律顧問はモラー氏と面会し模擬聴取の様子を報告

He just made something up. That’s his nature.
I’m not going to sit there and let him look like an idiot.
“大統領はうそをつく 聴取を受けさせるわけにはいきません”

Tonight, Dowd denies any of this happened.
法律顧問は否定しているが—

But Woodward, who broke the Watergate scandal, says
he conducted hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand witnesses.
一次情報源に長時間取材した結果だとウッドワード氏は話す
