“I Want To Know What I Can Say”: Trump Rehearsing For Questions In Mueller Probe

The question of whether President Trump will sit down with special counsel Robert Mueller seems to have been answered, as President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani reportedly told NBC News White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell that he and President Trump have been rehearsing both “in person and by phone” and that President Trump said “I want to know what I can say that’s not privileged and what’s [sic] I can say which is…

Earlier in the month, Giuliani – who was hired by Trump to handle the Mueller investigation, revealed that Trump’s legal team was “several weeks away” from deciding whether Trump would agree to an interview with Mueller’s team.

Giuliani told the Washington Post on Wednesday that Trump won’t agree to an interview unless prosecutors allow the President’s legal team to review documents related to the FBI’s use of an informant, Stefan Halper, to spy on several members of his 2016 campaign. 

“We need all the documents before we can decide whether we are going to do an interview,” Giuliani said in an interview with The Washington Post, using Trump’s term “spygate” to refer to the FBI actions, which former officials have said were well within bounds.

Giuliani’s latest demand further ratcheted up the pressure that Trump and his lawyers are trying to place on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s team as his investigation into alleged coordination between Trump’s campaign and Russia reaches a key juncture. –WaPo

President Trump once again slammed the special counsel’s “Rigged Russia Witch Hunt” over Twitter on Tuesday, writing that he needs to “start focusing my energy on North Korea Nuclear, bad Trade Deals, VA Choice, the Economy, rebuilding the Military, and so much more.”

In previous comments, Giuliani has said that Trump did nothing improper and is eager to talk with Mueller. Tuesday, however, he said he didn’t want to make a call on whether Trump will sit down for an interview “until they decide whether they are going to give us the documents or not.

When asked on Sunday during an appearance with CNN’s Dana Bash wither he thinks the Mueller probe is legitimate, Giuliani replied “Not anymore. I don’t. I did when I came in.”

In an appearance later in the day on Fox News, Giuliani told host Bill Hemmer “The reality is we’re not going to sit him down if this is a trap for perjury…he wants to explain that he did nothing wrong.”

Giuliani said on Tuesday that Mueller’s office indicated that Trump’s interview would be a final step in the investigation. “They reserved the possibility they might have to interview a few people as a follow up,” he said. “But they said they had pretty much finished. This was four weeks ago.

“I don’t think they would have asked to interview him until they are pretty much finished with everything,” Giuliani said. “They’re only going to get one shot at him. They know that. You look pretty amateurish if you interview him and you don’t have all the facts gathered.”

  1. It’s all a set up. Mueller’s mission is to remove Trump from office. An interview with Trump is Mueller’s big chance to set Trump up for perjury.
    It’s the lion and the lamb discussing what’s for dinner.

  2. What the hell is wrong with Giuliani? Everyone, even the Democrats, knows that Trump has nothing to hide, but the Democrats are hoping that Democrat Mueller and his Democratic witch-hunt team can find a way to trap and charge Trump with an impeachable offense.

    Worse than that. After months of Trump’s claiming the special counsel is a hoax, Giuliani wants to give Mueller and that hoax legitimacy by having the president of the United States submit to its questioning. What the hell is wrong with Giuliani?

  3. I have to say this, Trump has done more for this Country then the last 10 Presidents and he’s a very smart guy. But if he gives in to this interview and does it, I’m done with him. He has done no wrong and he shouldn’t be caught in the left’s trap. Mr. Trump most Americans are behind you and WE THE PEOPLE think it’s a bad idea to get caught in this trap. The left has nothing, just look at the facts. Including Mueller there’s 14 Dumocraps investigating him and they’ve had almost 2 years and they came up with nothing. This is an illegal investigation and it should have never happened and it needs to stop now. Where is the REAL rule of law?

  4. I done know if I totally trust Guliani either, I still say this interview is some kind of leftists trap, and if I were President Trump, I wouldn’t do it, no way, no how.😕

    1. So, he still insists he wants to go for a little chitty chat with Robert Mueller and his team of Clinton donors and suspects.
