Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that the team of lawyers haRudy Giuliani said Wednesday that the team of lawyers handling President Trump's response to the special counsel investigation would send Robert Mueller a counter-offer for a potential interview on Wednesday.
Giuliani told CNN that the letter would represent "a good faith attempt to reach an agreement" with the special counsel's office on a possible interview between Mueller and the president, which Trump's team has warned would not be allowed to focus on questions of obstruction of justice.
Questions on Trump's remarks about former national security adviser Michael Flynn and fired FBI Director James Comey would be off-limits, as Trump's lawyers view them as "perjury traps," Giuliani told CNN. "For example: 'What did you say about Flynn?' 'Why did you fire Comey?'" They already know our answer," Giuliani said Wednesday.

Rudy you did good by us BITD
I am really having a hard time understanding why Rudy is even on Trump’s team.
Why on Earth?
Don’t talk to the police!
Not sure why Trump feels compelled to talk to Mueller. Makes no sense.
Geez, this is way past ridiculous, unless POTUS agrees to go to the sit down and delivers his favorite saying, “You’re fired!”
Same ground rules Hillary got.
If I understand the situation correctly, the President wants to talk to Mueller against the advice of his legal team. So the legal team is trying to work out the safest possible way for Mueller to interview the President. I think the President is making a huge mistake in opening himself up to a possible interview. His natural inclination is that he can talk to and negotiate with anyone, but this is a whole other kettle of fish from what Trump is used to in his business dealings.
A stalling tactic for Trump? The longer they string out the possibility that Trump will talk to Mueller, the less chance Mueller will come out with anything, albeit likely pitifully weak, right before the midterms?
I think Trump is playing a serious game of chicken with Mueller - holding back on declassifying all the FISA/Russia stuff in case Mueller unleashes an "October Suprise". This way the declassifaction release would be sure to overtake anything that might hurt Trump.
I think it's brilliant, BTW.
NO! Don’t even think about a deal to talk to Mueller.
When you make a deal with the Devil, don’t be surprised when he gets your soul.
NO. Unless this is a gigantic Lucy and the football game.
Do you really believe Trump is that naive? Maybe when he first got into office he was overly trusting of the powers that be. But he's a fast learner and the bloom is definitely off the rose.
Not going to happen...but a nice stall.
It’s just a stall.....elections.
