Mueller rejects Trump request to answer questions in writing

  Mueller rejects Trump request to answer questions in writing Special counsel Robert Mueller has denied President Trump's request to answer Russia probe questions in writingFormer New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now on President Trump's legal team, told CBS News correspondent Paula Reid Monday afternoon that special counsel Robert Mueller's office has rejected proposals to allow Mr. Trump to answer questions from investigators in writing.

He said the fact that Cohen has become involved in the probe shows that Mueller has been unable to make headway on the idea of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Giuliani said he represents Trump , not Cohen, but nevertheless believes Cohen did nothing wrong.

"It's been a year, he ’s gotten more than 1.4 million documents, he ’s interviewed 28 witnesses, and he has nothing ," Giuliani said , "which is why he wants to bring the president into an interview." Giuliani spoke to Ingraham the same day he said that Mueller told Trump 's legal team he would follow

President Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News' Laura Ingraham Wednesday night that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should wrap up his investigation into alleged collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign, saying that Mueller "has nothing."

"It's been a year, he’s gotten more than 1.4 million documents, he’s interviewed 28 witnesses, and he has nothing," Giuliani said, "which is why he wants to bring the president into an interview."

“Virtually everything said has been said incorrectly, and it’s been said wrong, or it’s been covered wrong by the press,” Mr. Trump said on Friday. “ He ’ll get his facts straight.” Seeming to chastise Mr. Giuliani , Mr. Trump added: “You know what?

“I have no knowledge of that,” Mr. Giuliani said when asked about other payments, “but I would think if it was necessary, yes.” If Mr. Trump were to invoke the Fifth Amendment, he would undercut his longstanding claim that he has nothing to hide about his campaign’s ties to Russia.

Giuliani spoke to Ingraham the same day he said that Mueller told Trump's legal team he would follow Justice Department guidelines and not indict the sitting president.

"They have only exculpatory information about us," he said. "I've been through the documents. So it's about time to get the darn thing over with. It's about time to say, 'Enough. We've tortured this president enough.'

Giuliani said the president's legal team wants Mueller's investigators to "tell us what you have to get from an interview that you don't already have, because he has all the facts to make a decision.

"We're trying to get him to end this," the former federal prosecutor and New York City mayor said of Mueller.

Giuliani: Mueller's team told Trump's lawyers they can't indict a president

  Giuliani: Mueller's team told Trump's lawyers they can't indict a president Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has informed President Donald Trump's attorneys that they have concluded that they cannot indict a sitting president, according to the President's lawyer. "All they get to do is write a report," Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told CNN. "They can't indict. At least they acknowledged that to us after some battling, they acknowledged that to us.

But Giuliani wasn't done. He went on Sunday's ABC This Week "to explain that when he said that Trump had reimbursed Cohen, he didn't know what he was talking about" and that it's very hard to "separate fact from opinion," Colbert said , and he agreed.

He is telling Mueller his finances are off limits, because that’s where the evidence is. Here, Giuliani is claiming that he didn’t have all the facts when he discussed Trump ’s sensitive legal affairs on national television. “Obviously you have nothing to say to these families,” Pallone said .

Giuliani added that he is ready to challenge any report issued by Mueller and his team.

"I think that they have the facts on which they can write their report," Giuliani said before issuing a challenge to the special prosecutor: "If you're going to write a fair report, fine, write it. If you're going to write an unfair report, write it and we will combat it.

"We are ready to rip it apart."

Giuliani also reacted to Trump's newly filed disclosure form, which confirms that the president reimbursed his personnel attorney, Michael Cohen, for a $130,000 payment he made to adult film star Stormy Daniels days before the 2016 presidential election. Giuliani initially told Fox News' Sean Hannity earlier this month that Trump had reimbursed Cohen for the payment.

He will get his facts straight,” Trump told reporters. “Virtually everything that’s been said has been said incorrectly.” According to CNN, Trump and Giuliani will still ultimately decide if Trump agrees to be interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller .

Giuliani added that the disclosure to the Office of Government Ethics "vindicates our original strategy," but added that he didn't think the payment should have been made public in the first place.

"I think it was an expenditure that had to be reimbursed," Giuliani said. "They say it's a liability ... I don't agree that it's a liability because I know the nature of it, [but] it doesn't matter at this point."

Cohen is the subject of a criminal investigation by federal authorities in New York and FBI agents raided his office, apartment and hotel room last month. Giuliani told Ingraham Wednesday that the Cohen case did not concern Trump's legal team.
