One of President Donald Trump’s attorneys, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, won’t give in to Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s demands.

Mueller, a former FBI Director appointed by President George W. Bush, is the current head of the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Like many on the right, Giuliani believes Mueller and those on his team are engaged in a political witch hunt against Trump in order to damage his reelection chances in 2020.

Now, Giuliani has a message for Bob that he won’t forget anytime soon.

From Newsmax:

President Donald Trump will not answer federal investigators’ questions, in writing or in person, about whether he tried to block the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, one of the president’s attorneys told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said questions about obstruction of justice were a “no-go.”

Giuliani’s statement was the most definitive rejection yet of special counsel Robert Mueller’s efforts to interview the president about any efforts to obstruct the investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and Russians. It signals the Trump’s lawyers are committed to protecting the president from answering questions about actions the president took in office.

Continued:

It’s unclear if Giuliani’s public position has been endorsed by Trump, who has said he wants to answer questions under oath. Negotiations about the scope and format of an interview are still ongoing. If the legal team holds its stance, it could force Mueller to try to subpoena the president, likely triggering a standoff that would lead to the Supreme Court.

Mueller’s office has previously sought to interview the president about the obstruction issue, including his firing last year of former FBI Director James Comey and his public attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump’s legal team has argued that the president has the power to hire and fire appointees and the special counsel does not have the authority to ask him to explain those decisions. Giuliani said Thursday the team was steadfast in that position.

“That’s a no-go. That is not going happen,” Giuliani said. “There will be no questions at all on obstruction.”

So, Giuliani may let Trump answer written questions for Mueller – but definitely not regarding obstruction of justice.

Fox News reports:

President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said in an interview Thursday that his team is nearing a deal for the president to provide written responses to questions from special counsel Robert Mueller on the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Giuliani told Politico in an interview that in-person questioning hasn’t been ruled out.

“I think we’re pretty close to an agreement, maybe this weekend,” Giuliani told the outlet in regards to a deal for written responses.

Will he or won’t he? That’s the question of everyone’s mind at the moment.

By sitting down with Mueller or answering written questions, Trump can put the Russia issue to bed once and for all.

On the other hand, as duly elected president of the United States, Trump is under no obligation to do so.

Stay tuned.
