Rudy Giuliani just told Bob Mueller to go pound sand and officially started the war with Bob Mueller.
Look, we all knew it was going to come to this – and eventually, the Supreme Court – and the only ones who are shocked are the liberals who wanted Trump to roll over.
Won’t happen – Trump will fight until the end.
President Donald Trump’s lawyers rejected special counsel Robert Mueller’s terms for an interview in the Russia investigation, saying that they do not want the president answering questions about possible obstruction of justice, The New York Times reports.
Citing “people familiar with the matter,” the Times disclosed Wednesday that Trump’s lawyers “did not reject an interview outright but included the narrower counteroffer.”
Trump’s attorneys said they had responded to Mueller’s latest offer, reiterating their call for an end to the Russia investigation.
“We have responded in writing to the latest proposal from the Office of Special Counsel regarding its request to interview the president,” Jay Sekulow said in a statement posted on Twitter. “It is not appropriate, at this time, to comment publicly about the content of that response.”
But Rudy Giuliani, who has long called for an end to the Moscow probe, was far harsher.
“Millions of pages of documents along with testimony from dozens of witnesses have been provided,” the former New York City mayor said.
“We’re re-stating what we have been saying for months: It is time for the Office of Special Counsel to conclude its inquiry without further delay.”
The Trump team’s latest response stemmed from a letter last week from Mueller’s prosecutors, which came after the president’s lawyers outlined the scope and format of a possible interview.
Earlier Wednesday, Giuliani said Trump’s counsel was making a “good-faith attempt to reach an agreement” with Mueller’s prosecutors with the forthcoming counteroffer.
He declined to provide specifics, only telling CNN that “there is an area where we could agree, if they agree.”
