Trump’s lawyer dropped a bombshell that has Mueller running for his life
Will President Trump sit for an interview with Robert Mueller?
That question has hung over the rigged witch hunt for months.
But an answer may be at hand and it’s bad news for Mueller.
Rudy Giuliani addressed the question of if Trump would sit for an interview with the special counsel’s office during an interview on CNN.
Trump’s lawyer stated that he would recommend against it – although Trump would like to tell his side of the story – because Mueller’s office is operating in bad faith.
“President Donald Trump’s attorney on Monday accused special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of acting in “bad faith” in setting up an interview with the president over its investigation into collusion and conflict of interest.
Rudy Giuliani told CNN that the president’s legal team has waited 10 days for a response from Mueller’s office on negotiations over what can be asked during the interview, saying that the president would only answer questions about allegations of collusion between his campaign and the Russian government and not about questions related allegations of obstruction of justice.
“They haven’t gotten back to us in 10 days over our recommendation of how to do an interview. I am sure they are in bad faith about an interview at that point,” said Giuliani, who heads the president’s outside legal team.
The former New York mayor said he would advise against allowing such an interview but that the president was eager to tell his side of the story.”
Giuliani is correct that Mueller is operating in bad faith.
Mueller was never tasked with a crime to investigate regarding Trump.
The special counsel was essentially charged with investigating Trump until he could fabricate a crime to allege the President committed.
