Giuliani on Trump interview with Mueller: ‘Over my dead body’

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, cast doubt Sunday on whether the commander in chief would sit for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election.
“Over my dead body, but, you know, I could be dead,” Giuliani said in an interview with “Fox News Sunday.”
Asked by interviewer Chris Wallace whether Mueller’s team had been in touch about an in-person interview, the former New York City mayor, who has long said there is no evidence of collusion between Russia and Trump, again slammed the Justice Department probe, citing the treatment of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who both pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.
“Good luck after what they did to Flynn, the way they trapped him into perjury. And no sentence for him? Fourteen days for Papadopoulos. I did better on traffic violations than they did with Papadopoulos.”
“There are several unpaid parking tickets … that haven’t been explained,” Giuliani quipped when asked about a Trump interview.
Giuliani also slammed former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to a series of eight federal crimes, including making or helping carry out hush money payments to women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump. The longtime Trump attorney said he did so out of loyalty to the real estate mogul.
“This man is lying. Is that a big surprise to you? … The man got up in front of the judge and said, ‘I was fiercely loyal to Donald Trump.’ Nonsense. … He taped him, lied to him,” he argued.
“The man is a complete pathological liar,” Giuliani said.
The president tweeted repeatedly Sunday about Mueller’s investigation, making use of the phrase “witch hunt” as he has often before. His comments fit with the theme of Giuliani’s comments, about so-called perjury traps.
“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax, started as the ‘insurance policy’ long before I even got elected, is very bad for our Country,” Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon. “They are Entrapping people for misstatements, lies or unrelated things that took place many years ago. Nothing to do with Collusion. A Democrat Scam!“
