Giuliani bristles at idea of special counsel targeting 'fine woman' Ivanka Trump

Giuliani bristles at idea of special counsel targeting 'fine woman' Ivanka Trump

Trump in the past has said he wanted to talk to Mueller as a way of wrapping up an investigation that the president has termed a "witch hunt", but he soured on the prospect after the FBI raided the offices of his longtime personal attorney and adviser, Michael Cohen.

US President Donald Trump's new chief lawyer said on Thursday that if his client agrees to an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, it should be limited to a few hours and focus on Russian tampering in the 2016 election.

Just because Mueller is determined to get Trump's testimony, it does not necessarily mean that he thinks the President is guilty of a crime or an impeachable offense.

Yes - and twice in modern history.

In 1974, special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski sued president Richard Nixon to obtain tapes of White House conversations. The tapes proved deeply damaging and, facing impeachment, a month later Nixon resigned. His refusal to fully comply with the subpoena was not legally challenged.

Can Trump refuse to testify? That could force Mueller to sue the White House, and the case could head to court, where the Nixon ruling would loom large.

If there is truth underlying this question - if Mueller has hard evidence that the true answer is "yes" - it could only have come to Mueller from Rick Gates, Manafort's former business partner and co-defendant and now Mueller's star witness.

Trump must let the process unfold and answer the prosecutor's questions. "He has to give his name, his occupation and that sort of thing". The question there was, the only possible violation there would be: Was it a campaign finance violation? They've wrongly suggested the investigation was launched based on the Steele dossier or the leaking of classified information.

In an interview Wednesday night on Fox News Channel, former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani also criticized special counsel Robert Mueller for his demands against a sitting president, which he called unprecedented.

A few days after Comey was sacked, Trump said in a televised interview that he was thinking about the Russian Federation probe when he chose to terminate the Federal Bureau of Investigation director. The questions are apparently a road map of inquiry that Mueller and his prosecutors and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents plan to put to the president if the president agrees to sit down for an interview with them. Hillary Clinton got that.

". Mueller responded that he had another option if Trump declined: He could issue a subpoena for the president to appear before a grand jury, according to four people familiar with the encounter". In early April, Alex van der Zwaan, son-in-law of one of Russia's richest men, became the first person sentenced in the probe. Trump is pursuing a political strategy: Discredit the investigation and fire those who are doing it.

Bannon acknowledged Giuliani had caused some problems with his Fox News interview but said there's a larger strategy at play here.
