Former US attorney Greg Brower had nothing but scorn for Rudy Giuliani’s statement that “Mueller is running out of time.”
Brower agreed with MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson’s assertion that the comment seemed to be “more of a pr strategy than a legal strategy”, since “Robert Mueller can do what he wants”.
“This is Giuliani being Giuliani,” Brower said. He added that Giuliani was “trying to create spin and, frankly, trying to create leverage of the type that neither he nor the president really has.”
Brower went on to explain that despite Giuliani’s protests to the contrary, the investigation into Russia’s efforts to hack and disrupt the 2016 election, and whether they colluded with the Trump campaign, would “proceed on the special counsel’s time and in the way the special counsel thinks is appropriate.”

Iran probes seized UK-flagged tanker — Britain to hold emergency meeting
ran warned Sunday that the fate of a UK-flagged tanker it seized in the Gulf depends on an investigation, as Britain prepared for an emergency security meeting on Tehran's action.
Iranian authorities impounded the Stena Impero with 23 crew members aboard off the port of Bandar Abbas after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized it Friday in the highly sensitive Strait of Hormuz.
Video footage released by Iran showed the Stena Impero tanker being surrounded by speedboats before troops in balaclavas descend a rope from a helicopter onto the vessel.
In an audio recording of a radio exchange, an Iranian officer can be heard ordering the tanker to change course "immediately".
For Cubans — a day at the beach is no easy task
Cuba's constitution guarantees its people access to its beaches, but many locals are unable to enjoy the island's pristine white sands and crystal clear blue waters.
While foreign tourists flock to such paradisiacal Havana sites as Varadero, which was this year named the second most-beautiful beach in the world by American travel website TripAdvisor, Cubans are typically found elsewhere.
"Not many tourists come here," said 43-year-old Rey Gonzalez, who was enjoying a day at Guanabo, a beach east of the capital.
Guanabo's sand isn't as white and the water not quite as clear as Varadero's, but that mattered little to Gonzalez, who was there with his family.
