The Political Junkie: Trump Nominated For Nobel, Also Faces Possible Mueller Subpoena

Share

Rudy Giuliani, once known as "America's Mayor" and hailed for helping unite a wounded city after September 11, has become the aggressive face of President Donald Trump's forceful new legal team.

In an interview with ABC News, hours before the announcement of his retirement, Cobb said Trump's testimony is "certainly not off the table, and people are working hard to make decisions and work towards an interview".

"It's a court order to show up at a certain time and place".

Trump wouldn't be the first president to be subpoenaed.

Mueller's appointment as Special Counsel was initially supported by a lot of Republicans, implying that Trump initially did not enjoy support from his party.

Meyers speculated everyone in Trump's orbit freaks out when they get a closeup look at the Mueller investigation. Thirteen of the 17 lawyers on Mueller's team have either registered as or donated to Democrats, according to available records. "Nobody wants to speak more than me, because we've done nothing wrong", Trump said.

Mueller and his team are the ones who need this interrogation.

Mueller is helming a wide-ranging probe into unproven allegations that the president's campaign colluded with Russians to impact the result of the 2016 election. Meyers marveled, speculating that if Giuliani had been O.J.'s lawyer he would have said, "Hey, even if the gloves don't fit you can still stab somebody".

But legal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) said it was asking the Department of Justice and Office of Government Ethics to investigate whether Trump made an illegal false statement by not including the $130,000 payment in his personal financial disclosures.

Did he suggest that fired NSC Advisor Gen. Mike Flynn might get a pardon? Former FBI Director James Comey's scathing review will not settle the arguments about President Trump, nor will it calm the controversy over its author. Did he pressure Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire Mueller?

Mueller has legitimate questions to pose to the president. Even Democrats are backing away from talk of impeachment.

The New York Times reported in January that McGahn threatened to resign past year when Trump ordered Mueller to be fired. "I don't talk to them".

Will a new Congress impeach and convict an elected president? But the inquiries into Mr. Trump and his associates are so riven by questions of legal ethics and partisan politics that they seemed to have polarized and stirred up passions in law-enforcement circles.

He cited a list of 49 questions for Trump prepared by Trump's lawyers on the basis of an oral presentation by Mueller's investigators and called the wide-ranging queries concerning links to Russians and potential obstruction of justice, including the firing of Comey, a "perjury trap".

The second is the story of how an FBI cabal went into the tank on an investigation of Clinton to save her campaign.

So, for now, it looks like the president is more likely than not to survive all of this.

Further, Giuliani warned that "the whole country will turn on" Mueller if he goes after Ivanka.
