Giuliani Opposed to Letting Trump Speak With Mueller: He Could ‘Talk Himself Into Becoming a Target’

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani is still saying things to the press.

He told The Wall Street Journal he opposes letting President Trump speak to Robert Mueller.

Why? Well, in part, Giuliani says that Trump could “talk himself into becoming a target.”

Giuliani also spoke to The Huffington Post in an interview out tonight, and right off the bat he said that even if there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia on the Clinton emails, “It isn’t illegal… It was sort of like a gift. And you’re not involved in the illegality of getting it.”

But he also addressed the issue of the stolen emails in the first place and, um, he’s a skeptic:

Giuliani said he is still not convinced the emails were stolen by Russia, and that he is unwilling to accept the word of former CIA Director John Brennan or former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

“You say stolen. I say, emails that were put out in the public domain,” Giuliani said. “You’d also have to believe that U.S. intelligence was correct. They’ve been right about a lot of things. They’ve been wrong about a lot of things. I certainly wouldn’t trust Clapper or Brennan as far as I could throw them.”
