President Trump will not answer any more questions with vanguard news today , from Mueller: Giuliani .
Lawyers for U.S. President Donald Trump have told special counsel Robert Mueller that he will not answer any more
questions in the probe of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election .
Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Reuters on Wednesday. Trump submitted written answers to questions from Mueller in late November. In an interview with Reuters,
Giuliani said Mueller raised the possibility of follow-up questions but that the president‘s outside legal team told the special counsel before Christmas that Trump would not respond.
Trump’s lawyers and Mueller’s team have had no contact since then, Giuliani said.
“As far as we’re concerned, everything is over,” Giuliani told Reuters. “We weren’t convinced they had any questions they don’t know the answer to.”
Giuliani said the ball was now in the special counsel’s court. “They could try to subpoena him if they want,” he said. “But they know we could fight that like hell.”
Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment.
U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election to try to help Trump win.
Trump has denied any collusion with Moscow and Russia has said it did not meddle in the election.
Mueller was appointed in May 2017 to investigate the Russian interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. It is unclear when the probe, which has clouded Trump’s first two years in office, will end.
In his latest interview, the president’s lawyer said it was time for the special counsel to issue his report. “Put up or shut up,” Giuliani said. “We challenge you to do it.”
