Did Trump ever want to sit down with Mueller?

Trump lawyers call Comey 'Machiavellian' in note to Mueller Did Trump ever want to sit down with Mueller?

After host George Stephanopoulos said to Giuliani that Comey says he took Trump's remark as direction, Giuliani responded that he was also told, "Can you give the man a break?" many times as a prosecutor.

The signal is coming through loud and clear: Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer and fixer, wants to cooperate with federal investigators.

"Michael Cohen should cooperate with the government", Giuliani said on ABC's This Week.

"We would not recommend an interview for the President unless they can satisfy us that there is some basis for this investigation", Giuliani said.

Stephanopoulos pressed, "So you have no concerns at all about anything that Michael Cohen might tell the prosecutors?"

"If he wants to cooperate, I think it's great", Giuliani said. "And, if he does that, we're home-free". And back in January, the president himself said he'd like to talk to Mueller under oath.


On CNN's State of the Union, Giuliani said that if Mueller issued a subpoena to compel Trump to testify, his legal team believes it could be quashed.

Giuliani said he was not concerned by the interview.

In an interview last week with Stephanopoulos, Cohen acknowledged that he soon could face criminal charges in an ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of his finances and business dealings. "The president did nothing wrong with him". The AP obtained a copy of the other document, in addition to a two-page memo from September in which Trump lawyers lament to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that Mueller was "inexplicably" not investigating Comey's "misconduct" they had earlier raised.

Scarborough makes no mention of the strong evidence showing that the FBI spied for Lyndon Baines Johnson's presidential campaign, as the Wall Street Journal reported, "On the president's orders, the bureau wiretapped Barry Goldwater's plane and headquarters." They're not going to find any of that. Giuliani called Mueller's inquiry "a witch hunt and an attempt to trap him in perjury".

The former NY mayor said on NBC that it's "great" if Cohen wants to cooperate with investigators because "we've been through all the records" and "he has no evidence of, nor was he involved in, anything untoward with the president". "In all the leaking that's gone on, there's been no leak of any fact that's said the president conspired with anybody in Russian Federation".
