Giuliani: Mueller's Russia Probe is Not a Legitimate Investigation

CNN Legal Analyst: I Would Be Surprised If Mueller ‘Didn’t Conclude the President Obstructed Justice’

Appearing on Fox News' Hannity, Giuliani said a potential Trump-Mueller interview is "highly unlikely" because he would be walking into a perjury trap. This would indicate that Trump's legal team expects either the President, or those close to him, to potentially be implicated in such a report.

Somewhat notably, Trump went after Mueller by name in multiple tweets raging against the "witch hunt" yesterday, accusing Mueller himself of harboring multiple conflicts of interest.

The former NY mayor said if Trump is interviewed by Mueller's legal team, "Our real concern is they're going to set up a perjury trap", attempting to catch Trump, who often misstates facts, in a lie, which is a criminal offense. "That's like your doctor going, 'I don't even know if that's a disease, bleeding from your eyeballs'".

Democrats have argued that Mr. Mueller is likely to subpoena Mr. Trump, which could spark a debate over whether a sitting president can be subpoenaed.

"Giuliani's comments follow former FBI Director James Comey's assertion during a CNN town hall in April that, "[Collusion]"is not actually a thing that exists under the federal laws of the United States".

"It seems to me his default position is to lie", Mr Giuliani said of Mr Cohen, who in May he said was an "honest, honourable lawyer".

Temperatures to PLUMMET this weekend after record breaking 37c HEAT
Essex Police said the search for a boy who was last seen in water near Clacton Pier on Thursday evening resumed on Friday morning. The level 3 warning, one behind a national emergency, has been issued with temperatures set to be in the high 20s this week.

Trump and his lawyers are right that the term "collusion" isn't a precise one when it comes to USA law.

He said the president doesn't have plans to fire Mueller but believes it "should get this over now". You start analyzing the crime - the hacking is the crime. "Collusion is not a crime".

Looks like Colbert has found one creative way to highlight some of Giuliani's conflicting opinions of Cohen - although, given its foundation in literary myth, it might not hold up in court.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team of investigators into the Trump campaign has indicted several Russian nationals and five American Trump associates on charges including Manafort, whose trial regarding allegations that he laundered $30 million on behalf of pro-Russia Ukrainian politicians begins Tuesday.

Should Manafort be convicted, the investigation by Mr Mueller could gain some momentum. "I suspect that we'll see that in some of his rulings".
