President Trump May be Interviewed by Robert Mueller in July

A possible date has been set for President Trump to be interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

If Rudy Giuliani has his facts straight this time, the Mueller team has recently displayed a “good faith effort” and promised to stick to a “narrow” field of questions in order to get the president in a room with Mueller sometime in July. If that interview takes place, a final report from Mueller could come by Labor Day.

Giuliani also told The Washington Times that Mueller has “eliminated a lot of subjects that would have indicated he was fishing. He’s eliminated those and he’s into a much more relevant area where we know the answers and we know the answers really can’t be effectively contradicted.”

That said, Giuliani still put the chances of an interview at 50-50.

He also commented on the Mueller’s investigative strategy:

I think they are relying more on obstruction and they wish perjury from their point of view than they are on collusion with the Russians. I think every time they’ve gone up the collusion alley it’s gone nowhere. That becomes the biggest obstacle to our testifying. Why are we going to get them to use the president’s word against himself? He’s already given all the explanations that they need to make a decision in his public comments. His comments under oath are not going to be materially different than this public comments. And if they would be we would tell them that. ‘On further reflection, he remembers this and that.’ So far there haven’t been too many further reflections.
