During the CNN interview, Giuliani also said that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has agreed to narrow the scope of a potential interview with the president to “about two” topics. He said that he has been told Mueller doesn’t plan to ask the president about the dealings of his former personal attorney Michael Cohen.
“The main focus that we want, I can tell you, simply is Russia,” Giuliani said.
Giuliani said that he doesn’t understand why the president even needs to be interviewed, other than to be trapped and forced to answer questions that could lead to perjury charges — although he quickly clarified and said that the president would not lie.
“There’s nothing to lie about,” Giuliani said.
