Kirsters Baish| Rudy Giuliani, attorney to President Donald Trump himself, explained to Fox News today that special counsel Robert Mueller contacted President Trump’s legal team a couple of weeks back, and what he told them changed the game. Mueller stated that they will not be indicting President Trump.
Giuliani explained that special counsel Robert Mueller will be following the policy of the Justice Department which says that a sitting president can not be indicted.
Giuliani released a statement to CNN saying, “All they get to do is write a report.”
”They can’t indict. At least they acknowledged that to us after some battling, they acknowledged that to us,” he continued.
A 1990 memo explains whether or not a sitting president can be indicted by the Justice Department.
Giuliani explained to the hosts on Fox, “This case is essentially over. They’re just in denial.”
Giuliani was brought onto Trump’s legal team back in April to help come to some kind of negotiation in hopes of ending the Russia probe. There has still not been any evidence found to date pointing towards foul play in the 2016 election.
Breitbart News reports:
Giuliani’s hiring signified a shift in the Trump legal team towards a more aggressive handling of Mueller’s investigation, a stark contrast to former White House lawyer Ty Cobb, who promised back in January that the Russia probe would conclude in four to six weeks. In August of 2017, Cobb predicted that the Special Counsel would be concluded by Thanksgiving. On multiple occasions, reporters overheard Cobb discussing details of the case loudly in public.
These comments were made by Giuliani not even 24 hours after he told NBC News that Donald Trump is in a “holding pattern” when it came down to a possible live interview with Robert Mueller.
