In a Wednesday interview with Fox News host Laura Ingram, President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t seem to know who he’s dealing with.
The former New York mayor first explained that the investigation into Trump should be ended immediately because it “is not good for the American people,” though he didn’t explain why. He said that he’s working to try and end the investigation.
“The special counsel’s office doesn’t seem to have that understanding they’re interfering with things that are much bigger than them, or us,” he continued. Though, again, he didn’t explain what those “much bigger” things are.
He then revealed that he’s only met with the Mueller team once and has sent them five letters, to which they’ve had no response.
Throughout the interview, Giuliani made several comparisons to Trump and former President Bill Clinton’s arguments against testifying or being subpoenaed. He also said that he sent Mueller a letter demanding the “Hillary Clinton treatment,” which he said would have given the legal team the full report two weeks in advance of the announcement.
That treatment might not be ideal for the Trump team as Clinton was under investigation from Republicans for over four years and brought in for questioning from the FBI as well as 11 hours of testifying before Congress.

Trump is desperate and clinging to anything he can use — including overt threats of violence
Donald Trump, by design, is a chaos monster who shovels crap out faster than people can process it. Unencumbered by normal human qualities like empathy or conscience, Trump can bounce from one awful behavior from another — grifting, sexual assault and harassment, racism, lying, conspiracy-mongering, criminal schemes — with astonishing speed, doing more wicked deeds in a day that what most aspiring villains can accomplish in a year or even a lifetime.
‘Cowardly’ and ‘shameful’: Critics say Trump’s refusal to release mid-year economic forecast an obvious election year ploy
"It gets them off the hook for having to say what the economic outlook looks like."
Administration officials have confirmed that the White House, breaking with decades of precedent, will not publish a mid-year economic forecast—a decision critics said is an obvious move to shield President Donald Trump from the political implications of a tanking economy ahead of November's election.
"Trump figures if he doesn't tell people they're out of work, they won't know they're out of work," tweeted writer Gerry Conway.
