Robert Mueller is out to get President Trump.
The special counsel has abused his authority and conducted a witch hunt on behalf of the swamp.
But now he’s walking into one meeting that could spell the end of his fishing expedition.
Trump recently hired former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his legal team.
Giuliani has assumed the role of negotiating an end to the Mueller probe.
And that includes haggling over whether Trump will agree to an interview with Mueller.
The Washington Post reports:
“Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Trump’s new personal lawyer dealing with the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, met with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III on Tuesday to reopen negotiations for a presidential interview, according to three people familiar with the talks.
Giuliani, who joined Trump’s legal team last week, conveyed the ongoing resistance of Trump and his advisers to an interview with federal investigators, but did not rule out the possibility, the people said, adding that Giuliani pressed Mueller for clarity on when the probe is expected to end.
In response, Mueller reiterated that he would like a chance to ask Trump questions about steps he took during the transition and early months of his administration, the people said. The special counsel emphasized, as he did in conversations in March with Trump’s team, that an interview is essential for investigators to understand Trump’s intent in making key decisions as they seek to wrap up the portion of the probe focused on potential obstruction of justice…
…The face-to-face discussions illustrated how Giuliani is functioning as Trump’s chief liaison and lead negotiator with the special counsel. The meeting renewed talks that had largely faltered since the resignation last month of John Dowd, a veteran lawyer who was serving as Trump’s lead outside attorney on the investigation.
“I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said in an interview with The Washington Post last week.
Trump said in a statement last week that Giuliani “wants to get this matter quickly resolved.”
But Trump is still wary of meeting with Mueller.
The special counsel tipped off prosecutors in the Southern District of New York and that led to federal agents invading his attorney’s home and office in order to seize documents.
Prosecutors don’t conduct interviews with subjects to “get their side of the story.”
They want this interview to see if Trump’s answers line up with that they already know.
If just one detail is off, they will accuse Trump of lying to federal investigators and demand Congress impeach him over it.
Trump should refuse any interview with Mueller.
Nothing good can come of it.
