Two weeks after vowing to shut down special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, attorney and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump's interview with investigators will be a "maximum" of two to three hours.
After taking a job as an attorney for the president two weeks ago, Giuliani said that he expected to be able to shut down Mueller's Russian investigation within one to two weeks.
On Wednesday, Giuliani spoke to The Washington Post about the news that Mueller wants to ask Trump dozens of questions.
According to reporter Robert Costa, Giuliani drew a line in the sand regarding the length of any interview.
“Some people have talked about a possible 12-hour interview. If it happens, that’s not going to happen, I’ll tell you that. It’d be, max, two to three hours around a narrow set of questions," Giuliani reportedly said.
