President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Sunday his client-in-chief would sit down with Special Counsel Robert Mueller “over my dead body.”
“But I could be dead,” Giuliani added as he answered questions Sunday from “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.
The New York Post reports,
Giuliani appeared on both “Fox News Sunday” and ABC’s “This Week” where he tore into Michael Cohen, the president’s ex-lawyer, and Mueller’s probe.
When asked by Wallace if he’d consider letting Trump sit down for an in-person interview with Mueller, Giuliani – like his boss – tried characterizing the Mueller probe as a witch hunt.
“Yes, there are several unpaid tickets back in 1986 and 87 that haven’t been explained,” Giuliani replied. He added that he wouldn’t let Trump near Mueller “after what they did to [former National Security Advisor Michael] Flynn. Trapped him into perjury.”
“I am disgusted with the tactics they’ve used in this case,” Giuliani added.
The former mayor said that Mueller’s team was trying to catch Trump in a “non-crime” – that of collusion – while also calling the president’s implication in campaign finance violations a non-crimes as well.
On ABC he called Cohen, who said that Trump ordered him to make hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and ex-Playboy playmate Karen McDougal, “pathetic.”
