When asked on ABC’s “This Week” whether the president would assert his right to remain silent, Giuliani said, “How could I ever be confident of that?”
“He may testify and we may actually work things out with Bob Mueller,” Giuliani added.
But Giuliani, who joined the president’s legal team last week, said he would advise the president not to sit down for an interview with the special counsel over the probe into possible collision with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign.
“They don’t have a case on collusion, they don’t have a case on obstruction,” he stated. “I’m going to walk him into a prosecution for perjury like Martha Stewart did?”
Giuliani also reiterated that even if Mueller were to attempt to force the president to come to an interview with a subpoena, he does not have to comply because “he’s president.”
Giuliani did detail a scenario where he would be comfortable with President Trump doing an interview with Mueller’s team.
“Hillary Clinton treatment is what I am looking for — not under oath,” he said.
Meanwhile, President Trump’s former personal lawyer Joseph diGenova said the president will not be interviewing with Robert Mueller’s team because the Special Counsel has been acting in “bad faith.”
“The president will not sit down for an interview because this investigation has reached a level of bad faith,” diGenova told “Fox News Sunday.” “This is no longer a good faith investigation.”
