Trump's Legal Team Changes Demands For Mueller Interview

Trump's Legal Team Changes Demands For Mueller Interview

In reply, Giuliani asked the interviewer "how you can expect us to just walk up our client like a lamb to the slaughter". "Zero. None", said Giuliani.

It wrote that Trump will only agree to it if Mueller "has evidence that Mr. Trump committed a crime and that his testimony is essential to completing the investigation". "This is the most corrupt investigation I have ever seen". On Saturday, Trump tweeted about "the Rigged Witch Hunt and the "Special" Counsel".

Mueller later removed Strzok from the probe after his anti-Trump and pro-Clinton text messages exchanged with former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page came to light. "What I said was they have to give us a factual basis, meaning some suspicion of a crime".

Cohen told the New York Times he paid adult actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 out of his personal account to keep her from revealing details of her alleged affair with the president.

Wehle told MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle on Monday that it would be "impossible" for Mueller to agree to Giuliani's demands.

The former NY mayor said on NBC that it's "great" if Cohen wants to cooperate with investigators because "we've been through all the records" and "he has no evidence of, nor was he involved in, anything untoward with the president".

"We're pretty much decided we are waiting for a decision of the counsel", Giuliani said, adding that there needs to be "some basis for investigation".

On Sunday, Giuliani repeatedly downplayed the possibility that Cohen, who was known for years as Trump's fixer, and who is on tape making threats on behalf of Trump, could provide information to prosecutors that would put the president in any legal jeopardy.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's home, office and hotel room in NY in April as part of a probe into his business dealings.

Giuliani made the television rounds Sunday morning, appearing on three different programs, as speculation grew louder last week that Cohen was inching closer toward facing criminal charges and possibly working out a deal with prosecutors. "Now, a source familiar with Cohen's thinking tells me that he feels that he's getting a strong signal from the president and from Rudy Giuliani that if his version of the truth doesn't coincide with their version of the truth, then they will continue their attacks on him". "The president did nothing wrong with him". "To subpoena the president has never been done successfully in the history of this country, and there is very strong law saying the president can't be subpoenaed", he said.

But he also argued that to rule out a pardon "wouldn't be fair to - to the president, wouldn't be fair to Cohen, wouldn't be fair to future presidents".
