Mueller and Trump are getting closer

Por dbloggers

Donald Trump is not afraid of Robert Mueller and as he had previously announced he will meet the Special Counsel face to face who has made this year a nightmare for Donald. According to the legal team of the US president, the leader will even answer questions related to the obstruction of justice in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, said Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Despite being offended by the leaked list of questions that The New York Times issued, Trump will attend to Robert Mueller call. However, Rudy Giuliani clarified to the CBS's Face the Nation program that the negotiations for the interview with the president continue on the same set conditions.

Giuliani now said they hope the questions will be limited to issues about the accusations of a possible conspiracy. The president's personal lawyer clarified that "there is no legal basis" for Trump to be asked about obstruction of justice.

Previously, the president openly expressed his contempt from the questions that could arise from the meeting. "(...) so infamous that the questions about the Russian witch hunt were 'leaked' to the press. Now I understand ... they have a fabricated crime, false, collusion, that never existed (...), he wrote on Twitter at the time.

The media and American politicians will be waiting for the results. Trump, in spite of adopting a strong position as a ‘badass boy”, he knows that Robert Mueller will have no mercy and will use his old FBI tactics to get as much information as possible from the meeting, join the loose ends and close his investigation on the Russian collusion and the probable obstruction of justice.

But Giuliani is doing his job well and is looking for all the legal loopholes to condition the meeting and give his client the advantage over the interrogator, who will have to deal under certain conditions to dialogue with Trump on the issue of obstruction of justice.

"There are certain general issues, and certain restrictions that we would be willing to accept", Giuliani said. "We have made an offer to them, it has been a week, ten days, and they have not responded, but I do not blame them", he added.

The former mayor of New York who serves as legal defender of the president has tried to avoid the face-to-face meeting between Trump and Mueller, but apparently the tenant of the White House has nothing to fear and has agreed to grant the interview. Among the legal arguments Giuliani offered there was a citation could not be issued to a president as part of the investigations.

Among the options to avoid the interview with Mueller was also the possibility of the president to “pardon” himself, a fact that the legal representative of Trump discarded because of the severe implications that could have led to this. "Forgiving himself would be unthinkable and would probably lead to impeachment immediately", Giuliani told NBC's Meet the Press a few weeks ago.

Giuliani had commented on the same program that Trump had done nothing wrong, and that he had no need to attend to Muller’s meeting; however, the intrigue over the case of the Russian collusion continues to cloud the White House.

This time the suspicions are greater after the statements made by the president ex-personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who indicated that the dignitary knew of the furtive encounter between officials of his campaign and the Russians. Apparently, the goal was to obtain bad-look information about the then Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Furthermore, there are the secret recordings of the conversations he has presented as irrefutable proof of Trump's knowledge of these matters. "I do not know what happened to him, a few months ago he was not saying all those lies, a few months ago I did not know he was a lawyer who secretly recorded his clients," Giuliani told The Week.

The truth is that in one way or another, all those who have been involved in the matter and close to Donald Trump have acted like Pontius Pilates or at least have wanted to redeem themselves from "some mistake" made along the way. Cohen is part of this last group of Trump’s close people that makes statements contradictory to his previous behavior, when he was under presidential protection.

However, Trump continues to deny everything related to the investigation and the possible Russian collusion involving family members. "..... I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don Jr. Sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam (Taxi cabs maybe?). He has even retained Bill and Crooked Hillary's lawyer. Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice!, Trump said on Twitter.

Among the questions that the Special Counsel suspects will make there are those related to Paul Manafort’s role in the campaign and his relationship with the Kremlin. It is also thought that Mueller will inquire about Michael Flynn, who lied to the FBI.
