President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani is reversing himself and now support allowing Special Counsel Robert Meuller to interview Trump, according to the Washington Post.
He made it obvious that this idea, which is not a smart one, was Trump’s not his.
“I guess I’d rather do the interview,” Giuliani said. “It gets it over with, it makes my client happy. The safe course you hear every lawyer say is don’t do the interview, and that’s easy to say in the abstract. That’s much harder when you have a client who is the president of the United States and wants to be interviewed.”
Trump understandably wants his name cleared and thinks he can do that by showing everyone that he withstood Mueller’s interrogation. But the danger of a perjury trap is so severe – particularly with someone like Trump, who says what he thinks – that questions should be answered in writing if at all.
As all of you know, saying what you think with attorneys around is a bad idea.
White House contacted Mueller’s office and received this reply.
