President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that he has “no decision” to announce on whether his client will agree to an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller.
Giuliani told The Washington Post in June that he would like Trump and his attorneys to inform Mueller whether or not they agree to an interview “by July 4th,” but said that he is “advising him to stay put, to hold our horses a little. I doubt August, and I doubt too far into July. But I do think things have changed.”
On CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Wednesday, Giuliani was asked, “You’ve said now July 4th is when you expect to have a decision on whether the president will sit for an interview with the special counsel. Why are you dragging it out? Don’t you know what you want to do now?”
Giuliani admitted that he “has no decision [he] can announce,” and said that although he does not think Trump should agree to an interview, he is “leaving it open,” and said he’s engaged in “sensitive negotiations” with the special counsel’s team, and that they may find a “narrow area” that they can both agree to.
“I think we’ve already agreed that it should be just audio recorded,” he said, as opposed to video.
“We would like to see it limited to some specific questions about the heart of the probe – the Russian alleged collusion,” Giuliani added. “We think that those questions could be answered quickly. We think two hours. They probably think four. So let’s settle at three. That’s the way you do a negotiation in good faith in this area. They have been in good faith.”
