Trump says lawyers have advised him against Mueller talks

Former assistant USA attorney and National Review columnist Andrew McCarthy said Friday the Justice Department should do everything in its power to stop Robert Mueller from interviewing President Donald Trump. "I would love to speak", Trump added.

The president Friday morning told reporters at the White House that he "would love to speak" to Mueller, despite the advice of his attorneys. "I have to find that we're going to be treated fairly", the President said. Trump and he had discussed disclosing Trump's repaying Cohen, and "he was well aware that at some point when I saw the opportunity, I was going to get this over with", Giuliani added.

Giuliani has said that if an interview were to take place, it would need to last no more than two to three hours and involve "a narrow set of questions". "They say, 'That's obstruction of justice.' It is nonsense", he said.

"All I'm telling is you that this country is right now running so smooth and to be bringing up that kind of crap, and to be bringing up witch hunts all the time, that's all you want to talk about", he said.

There are 4 comments on the Yahoo! story from 7 hrs ago, titled Rudy Giuliani Offers a New Explanation of Why President Trump Fired Jim ComeyTime.

If Trump refuses to cooperate with an interview, Mueller might still be able to compel testimony from him.

He said publicly that the White House had no interest in firing Mr. Mueller, and told friends privately that he would not remain in the administration if Mr. Trump moved to fire the special counsel.

Cambridge Analytica declaring bankruptcy, shutting down after being 'vilified'
She told Channel 4 News : "We will continue our investigation, both our civil investigation and our criminal investigation". Wednesday's news release announcing the decision lists only Cambridge Analytica and SCL Elections, not the parent company.

Several Republican House committee chairmen have recently negotiated deals with the Justice Department to turn over documents related to Russian Federation investigations into Trump and also the 2016 investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton's emails.

Even if Mueller's team chose to subpoena Trump as part of the investigation, the president could still fight it in court or refuse to answer questions by invoking his Fifth Amendment protection from self-incrimination.

It's the latest shake-up for a legal team grappling with unresolved questions on how to protect the president from legal and political jeopardy in Mueller's Russian Federation probe, which is nearing the one-year mark.

"I'm not gonna answer that", Comey said a at March 2017 House intelligence committee hearing in response to the question of whether Trump himself was being investigated. He repeatedly assured Mr. Trump and the public that the Mueller investigation would end quickly - first by Thanksgiving, then by the start of the new year.

In a second tweet, Trump said: "It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened". The former federal prosecutor, however, raised a number of questions about Trump's actions and motivations in a series of media interviews this week. He knows it's a witch hunt.

Mueller is a Republican and was appointed by one other Republican, Deputy Legal professional Basic Rod Rosenstein, to guide the investigation.
