Giuliani 'Close To Determining' That Trump Won't Sit Down With Mueller

Mueller is now leading an investigation into whether the president obstructed justice by meddling in the FBI's probe into possible collusion with Russian Federation in the 2016 election. "How you could end up hiring a group of people that are as prejudiced and biased as this group...is extraordinary". "We wouldn't be lawyers if we would do that".

Donald Trump walks with former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (L) through the new Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC.

Giuliani's comments mark the Trump team's latest attack on the Mueller probe. On CNN he pretended to host Dana Bash that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz "suggested [the Mueller probe] was influenced initially by bias", only for Bash to clarify that Horowitz was speaking about the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Cohen has scrubbed a reference of his long-time representation of Trump from professional credentials, saying recently, "My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will", not the president.

"We have not", Giuliani said. "We're close to determining that".

"We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction". "We can't find an incriminating anything".

"Robert Mueller's investigations brought charges against four ex-Trump advisers, top Trump political advisers, including his former campaign chief, who is now sitting in jail after allegations of witness tampering after his own indictments on fraud, false statements and foreign laundering of money", said Scarborough.

Giuliani, Trump's current attorney, said on ABC's "This Week" that neither he nor the president have any worries about what Michael Cohen will say "as long as he tells the truth".

"Well, I think so". In a closed-door interview last month with members of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, Mr. Strzok said his text messages were simply communications between friends that weren't indicative of the direction of the FBI's work.

Last week, Cohen, who once said he would "take a bullet" for Trump, broke his silence and told ABC's George Stephanopoulos he is putting "family and country first".

"I have advised the president, which he understands: no discussion of pardons, " Giuliani said in an appearance on ABC News' "This Week". But Giuliani insisted that Mueller must show a factual basis for the probe before the president considers meeting with him - especially if "they're trying to get him into a perjury trap". "You can't abridge your power to do it, that's something you can decide down the road one way or the other".
