On Thursday, Rudy Giuliani, legal counsel for President Donald Trump, claims that they’ll “decide” whether or not Trump will meet with Special Counsel Robert Mueller only after they receive a report on what Trump termed as “spygate.”
“We could probably decide by June 12 whether to testify,” Giuliani said Thursday.
However, the decision to meet with Mueller comes with stipulations, based on what Rudy Giuliani is saying. If Trump is given a report produced by the Justice Department on what Trump is calling “spygate”, Trump and Giuliani will decide whether they are going to meet with Robert Mueller.
“Are we going to get a report on ‘spygate’?” Giuliani said.
Giuliani admits that, as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, he too would never turn over all of his investigatory material to a potential target in this manner.
“But I wasn’t investigating the president,” Giuliani said, justifying the demand for the DOJ to turn over the FBI informant details. “You cannot compel criminal process on the president.”
“It’s one of the reasons I’ve become so aggressive, so his tweeting would be confined to the subject that we’ve chosen for the day”, Giuliani says.
Giuliani says he doesn’t want Trump to talk to Mueller at all.
“I would not like to talk to Mueller at all,” he said. “I don’t see what you gain from that.”
But, Giuliani says Trump has the opposite opinion. “He has a strong view that he should testify,” Giuliani said. “He believes he’s telling the truth: He didn’t collude with the Russians and he didn’t obstruct justice.”
It’s widely believed that Donal Trump will perjure himself within minutes of sitting down with Robert Mueller. Trump likes to talk and ramble, which is never a good thing sitting in front of an investigator.
