WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump’s legal team is preparing for a long-awaited showdown with special counsel Robert Mueller, according to published reports.
Mueller, who has been carrying out an ongoing investigation into whether or not Trump or any member of his campaign team colluded with Russia to sway the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, has requested the president agree to a one on one interview to answer his questions regarding his investigation.
Thus far, the sit-down has not yet occurred, however Mueller has announced his intent to release a report on his findings.
Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s attorney, says his legal team is preparing a counter attack to rebut any accusations that Mueller may make against his client and, again, defended Trump against allegations of wrongdoing.
“I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime,” Giuliani said in an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “Collusion is not a crime.”
Shortly thereafter during an interview with CNN, Giuliani said those who hacked the DNC, not Trump, are the only parties responsible for committing any wrongdoing.
“The hacking is the crime,” Giuliani told the network. “The president didn’t hack.”
Responding to a comment on Twitter, Giuliani agreed with a commenter who claimed the media was “twisting” both his and the president’s words in an effort to build a case for impeachment.
“Excellent observation,” Giuliani replied. “You can investigate an innocent person forever and forever and find nothing. When do we say enough is enough. No collusion, no obstruction. President Trump did nothing wrong.”
