White House close to refusing interview with Russian Federation investigation

White House close to refusing interview with Russian Federation investigation

A lawyer for US President Donald Trump on Sunday sharpened his attacks on the special counsel inquiry into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation, calling it "the most corrupt investigation that I've ever seen".

Giuliani, Trump's current attorney, said on ABC's "This Week" that neither he nor the president have any worries about what Michael Cohen will say "as long as he tells the truth".

A day after he tweeted "I will always protect my POTUS" in April, the FBI raided his home, office and hotel room as part of a probe by federal prosecutors in NY into his business dealings.

"Michael Cohen should cooperate", Giuliani told host George Stephanopoulos. Asked Sunday on ABC's "This Week" whether he has now determined there would be no interview, he said, "We have not (but) we're close to determining that".

The Times reported that Giuliani said the White House would not agree to an interview between Trump and Mueller unless investigators can prove that they have evidence that Trump committed a crime as well as that such an interview is essential to concluding the probe. "He has no evidence of, nor was he involved in anything untoward, with the president". First, he's been dropping increasingly heavy hints lately that he'll have no choice but to cooperate with prosecutors if someone (hint, hint) doesn't pay for his legal defense, which the Trump family had been kind enough to contribute to - until recently.

U.S. jobs growth stronger than expected
The labor force participation has increased, which brought the unemployment rate up slightly from 3.8 percent to 4 percent . It increases pressure to raise wages, and even curb business growth if there are not enough people to do the work.

President Donald Trump may soon sit for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller - but only if Mueller can provide a "factual basis" for suggesting the president did something wrong. In one such encounter, Comey said the president asked him at a private dinner for his loyalty and that Comey offered him "honest loyalty" instead.

On ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, Giuliani stressed that he wasn't anxious about testimony that Cohen might give.

"Mr. Comey continued his Machiavellian behavior after President Trump was elected", Kasowitz wrote. "We can't find an incriminating anything", Giuliani replied. "They have to give us factual basis leading to some suspicion of a crime".

"We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction", he said.

Mueller could subpoena Trump to testify before a grand jury if he does not agree to an interview, but Giuliani said, "If he does, we could have it quashed". It was the first in a series of conversations that Comey documented in writing, something Trump lawyers say he did with the ultimate goal of harming the president. The New York Times noted Friday that Trump has tweeted about a "witch hunt" 59 times since March alone, compared to 20 times in all of 2017.
