Giuliani becomes aggressive new face of Trump legal team

"I would love to go". I would love to. Comey wrote in a memo that Trump repeatedly asked him for loyalty. "I have to find that we're going to be treated fairly", the President said. "Witch Hunt!" Trump tweeted on Wednesday. What I wanted to advise Giuliani was that the fastest way to end the Mueller "witch hunt" was to have the president support our lawsuit seeking to uncover the illegal and criminal grand jury leaks to the media by the special counsel and his frankly evil leftist staff. Even after being elected president, he paid US$25 million to settle lawsuits accusing him of fraud for hoodwinking students who signed up for his now-defunct, for-profit Trump University.
"The problem we have is that you have 13 people that are all Democrats and they're real Democrats". "It is a very unfair thing".
I asked ex-federal prosecutor Alex Whiting for his thoughts on what the questions themselves may reveal about Mueller's investigation, why it matters who wrote them, and the broader question of whether President Trump will be subpoena'd by Mueller, and how the president might fight it.
This amorphous, wide-ranging guidance appears to have allowed Mueller to effortlessly slide from an amorphous, wide-ranging investigation into Russian meddling into an amorphous, wide-ranging investigation into obstruction of justice. Democrats on the committee contested numerous report's findings. Although Mueller's team has indicated to Trump's lawyers that he's not considered a target, investigators remain interested in whether the president's actions constitute obstruction of justice and want to interview him about several episodes in office. The New York Times first published the list of questions. Hannity, meanwhile, is dependably credulous and would, as Michael Cohen once said, take a bullet - at least a figurative one, possibly on 5th Avenue - for Trump, meaning there would be no examination of the implications of Giuliani's attempt at offhandedly delivering all that explosive news.
Rudy Giuliani's comments about President Donald Trump repaying his lawyer are overshadowing a couple other things the former NY mayor said in a Fox News interview: why Trump fired James Comey and Giuliani's description of Trump's son-in-law.
The standoff between Dowd and Mueller led to weeks of turmoil, according to the Post, as Trump's legal team determined how to respond to Mueller's request for an interview with Trump. That statement from Giuliani directly contradicted a prior claim by the president that he was unaware of the payment to Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with Trump in 2006. Trump initially said he was eager for an interview, but he hasn't said so recently.
As a White House employee, Flood, like Cobb, will not be representing Trump personally, and his conversations with the president won't be covered by attorney-client privilege.
Well, here's what he said moments later: "However, imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton".
Trump's lawyers are still working toward a resolution on the interview issue despite some of the tough rhetoric from Giuliani, whose performance was seen as a "sh-show" inside the legal team, the source said.
