Giuliani on Mueller’s Request to Talk to Trump Under Oath: Come On, ‘You Think We’re Fools?’
Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani appeared with Sean Hannity tonight to discuss the latest developments in the President’s legal team’s ongoing negotiations with Robert Mueller‘s office.
The two men agreed that Mueller is running a “totally illegitimate investigation,” with Giuliani wondering where where the special counsel’s “sense of justice” is.
When Hannity brought up the latest request from Mueller and Giuliani’s desire to see this end by September, Giuliani said, “I think if it isn’t over by September, than we have a very, very serious violation of the Justice Department roles that you shouldn’t be conducting one of these investigations in the 60-day period.”
He said they offered Mueller “a form of questioning” with the President, but went on to say this:
“He knows the answers to every question that he wants to ask. He’s going to ask ’em, ‘Did you tell Comey to go easy on Flynn?’ The president will say, ‘No, I didn’t.’ Hey, Bob, you know it. Why do you want to get him under oath? You think we’re fools?”
Giuliani added that it’s clearly a perjury trap.
Hannity asked about what the official response to Mueller was. Giuliani said he couldn’t, saying with a laugh that his co-counsel Jay Sekulow “is much stricter about this than I am.”
“He doesn’t need to ask a single question on obstruction,” Giuliani insisted, “he has all the answers.”
