Giuliani Meets With Mueller To Discuss Trump Interview

Until recently it appeared that Trump would not be interviewed by Mueller…

(Zero Hedge) After former White House lead attorney John Dowd was pushed out for insisting that President Trump agree to an in-person interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Rudy Giuliani, the newest member of Trump’s legal team and also now apparently the de facto leader, has reportedly met with Mueller to begin negotiating the terms of a Trump meeting, the Washington Post reported Wednesday…

Until recently, it had appeared as if Trump would ultimately decline to sit for an interview with Mueller. Furthermore, rumors recently circulated that Mueller and his team were preparing a path forward that didn’t involve a presidential interview…

During their meeting, Giuliani reportedly sought to wrestle some information out of Mueller about the probe and how much longer it could reasonably be expected to continue.

It has previously been reported that Mueller could conclude the probe within a few months of an interview with Trump, and that a presidential interview was the special counsel’s last major remaining obstacle.



Mueller also reportedly told Giuliani that his questions would mostly pertain to the transition and Trump’s first months in office.

“The face-to-face discussions ­illustrated how Giuliani is functioning as Trump’s chief liaison and lead negotiator with the special counsel…”

“Giuliani, 73, a former New York mayor and U.S. attorney, has known Mueller for decades through their work in federal law enforcement.”

“Both men were joined by members of their teams in the Tuesday sit-down meeting at Mueller’s office in southwest Washington…”
