Giuliani: ‘We Don’t Have to Cooperate’ With Mueller, His Investigation is Not ‘Legitimate’
Rudy Giuliani topped off his Monday media blitz by giving an interview to Sean Hannity — proclaiming that the Trump Administration has no obligation to cooperate with Robert Mueller.
Giuliani began by once again denying what he alluded to today about President Donald Trump being involved in a possible second Donald Trump Jr. Trump Tower meeting.
“It’s highly unlikely, I always have to leave the option open as a lawyer in case they comes across something that really startles us,” Giuliani said. “I believe we are coming toward the end, so I’m talking to some of the people that formed the original part of the investigation. I thank John Dowd for all the cooperation he gave them because that puts us in a position where we don’t have to cooperate.”
Giuliani mocked the idea that Trump will be impeached on the basis of his tweets, alluding to recent reports that Mueller is incorporating the president’s tweets into his obstruction of justice investigation. Hannity suggested that Giuliani could allow Mueller to ask Trump some limited questions about collusion, though the former New York mayor-turned-Trump attorney swatted that idea down.
“I don’t want to give a false impression. Given the revelation of the last three or four weeks, we’ve gone further away from the idea of answering any questions from them. We don’t think we have a legitimate investigation.”
