Giuliani confirms WH contested Mueller interview with John Kelly

  Giuliani confirms WH contested Mueller interview with John Kelly Rudy Giuliani confirmed on Sunday that the White House contested a request from the special counsel to interview White House chief of staff John Kelly. Giuliani, in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union," also spoke about the latest preconditions he is demanding for an interview between the special counsel and President Donald Trump. Asked about a report in The New York Times that included news of the pushback against special counsel Robert Mueller's request for an interview with Kelly, Giuliani said the special counsel team was dealing with White House attorney Emmet Flood on that issue.

Giuliani made the comments during a Fox News interview while reacting to FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok's testimony before a joint House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform committee hearing on Thursday.

"You're a lawyer, would you walk your client into a kangaroo court with guys who donated $36,000 to his opponent, cried at her loss party, represented the scoundrel who broke the hard drive?" Giuliani asked Fox host Laura Ingraham.

Giuliani has cast doubt on Trump interviewing with Mueller in the past. He told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published Tuesday that if he were to make a decision on the interview at that time, he would decide against it.

"If you have an objective group of people that you could persuade, of course you would consider testifying. But if you have people that are like him ... they never unraveled the taint that he created," Giuliani added, referring to Strzok.

"To this day we don't know the taint that he created in that investigation since he started with," Giuliani added later.

House Republicans and Trump allies have blasted Strzok, whom they have pointed to as key in exposing what they argue is systematic bias on the part of top law enforcement officials against Trump during the 2016 presidential election.

Strzok, who told lawmakers Thursday that it was "fair to say, I'm not a fan" of Trump, defended himself from accusations of bias in the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and the early stages of the Trump-Russia probe.

  ‘I want to see all their texts’: Giuliani claims with no evidence that messages sent by Mueller’s team could show anti-Trump bias The president’s attorney made the unsupported assertion during a Fox television interview, the latest attempt to undermine the investigation into possible coordination between Russia and Trump’s 2016 campaign. “I want to see all their texts,” Giuliani said, suggesting the messages would contain similar content to those of two FBI officials who expressed animus against Trump.

Giuliani ’s statements followed a Washington Post report on a Wednesday morning interview with him that was headlined: “In reversal, Giuliani now says Trump should do interview with Mueller team.” “Noooo!

"Political belief does not equate to bias," Strzok maintained under intense questioning from lawmakers about his private text messages with FBI lawyer Lisa Page during the election in which they slammed Trump and other political figures.

Trump allies have rejected that argument, as well as Strzok's explanation for why Mueller pulled him off the probe into Russian election meddling last year after becoming aware of the private text messages.

"He should have never have been involved in the investigation," Giuliani said of Strzok on Fox News while knocking Democrats for "stupidly defending" the controversial FBI agent during Thursday's hearing.

"The Mueller investigation is falling apart of its own weight," Giuliani also claimed during the interview.

Trump's legal team has been negotiating with the special counsel's office for months on the terms of a potential interview between Trump and investigators.

Giuliani said last week that the president will only agree to an interview with Mueller's team if the special counsel provides evidence that Trump has committed a crime and that his testimony is necessary to complete the federal probe.
