Giuliani says deal near for written questions from Mueller

Giuliani says deal near for written questions from Mueller

CBS News reported that President Trump's legal team would agree to written questions about Russian Federation after it reviews them, though the legal team is not willing to commit to anything beyond that at the moment, according to Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

The announcement puts an end to the weeks-long speculation surrounding the request from the special counsel that the president answer questions about his investigation into Russian election interference and alleged collusion with the Trump campaign.

Mr. Giuliani said Mr. Trump's legal team "would agree to written questions on Russian Federation". "We don't want to mislead [prosecutors] and have them think it's easy, but we have also not closed our mind to it".

Mueller's team indicated that they would be willing to accept written answers to their questions last week, if they were allowed follow up questions. Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's attorneys, famously said last month that he believes Trump could face perjury charges even if he tells the truth, saying: "Truth isn't truth". He compares that demand for legal action to the recent revelations of Justice Dept. official Bruce Ohr working behind the scenes to undermine Trump, which suggests a "witch hunt" is indeed well underway as Trump has claimed.

In the latest letter to the legal team, Mueller's office didn't address obstruction questions, indicating investigators would later assess what additional information it needs from the president after receiving a response about the written submissions, according to a person familiar with the document. "No one is above the law".

According to sources , Moonves didn't think it was a wardrobe malfunction but instead an intentional act to drum up controversy. According to Huff Post's sources, Timberlake was later allowed by Moonves after he apologized for the incident tearfully.

"We aren't going to let them spring it on us", Giuliani said of Mueller's questions.

Mueller's team raised the prospect in March that it could subpoena the president, though this would unquestionably prompt a court fight.

While Trump has previously said he's eager to sit down with Mueller, his lawyers reportedly fear their client would perjure himself.

Mr. Trump Jr. took the meeting, e-mails show, after it was described as part of a Russian government effort to help his father's campaign by providing derogatory information about Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton.
