On Thursday, CNN reported that President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani was upset about Special Counsel Robert Muellers’ questions for the president.
In a statement, Giuliani said that Mueller’s questions created trouble for his team.
“Some of the questions Giuliani says were unnecessary, some were irrelevant, some are possible traps. Sounds like they’re worried that the president could be in some legal jeopardy,” CNN Wolf Blitzer said during his Thursday show.
However, CNN commentator Gloria Borger said that Giuliani stepping back into the spotlight only reveals how truly worried he is about Trump.
“I’m sorry Mr. Giuliani doesn’t like the questions from the special counsel, that they’re not to his liking,” Borger said. “It’s amazing to me because honestly, they’ve been working on these questions for weeks. They finally negotiated a way where the president didn’t have to testify face-to-face on the issues of collusion, that he actually got a take-home open book test which they are writing answers to.”
She added, “The fact that Rudy Giuliani is now complaining about the questions leads me to believe, first of all, that they don’t know what everybody else is testifying and they’re a little worried about that. And they’re worried about their own client and whether their client is actually telling the truth.”

WATCH: Maddow goes off on GOP governor for not alerting residents of meat packing plant COVID-19 outbreak
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Wednesday harshly criticized Iowa's Republican governor for not alerting residents to an apparent COVID-19 outbreak at a meatpacking plant.
"The highest per-capita infection rate in the state of Iowa right now is in one Buena Vista County, population around 20,000," Maddow explained. "More than 3% of the entire population of the county is now confirmed to be infected."
"Now, where are all of these infections coming from?" she asked rhetorically. "You know by now, right, without me even having to say it. You know, and I know, even without having to look it up on a map. And local reporters know exactly what drives those kinds of epidemic spike numbers. Everybody knows what's going on."

Navajo Nation got masks from a former Trump official — that ‘are not approved by the FDA’: report
The Indian Health Service acknowledged on Wednesday that 1 million respirator masks it purchased from a former Trump White House official do not meet Food and Drug Administration standards for “use in healthcare settings by health care providers.”
The IHS statement calls into question why the agency purchased expensive medical gear that it now cannot use as intended. The masks were purchased as part of a frantic agency push to supply Navajo hospitals with desperately needed protective equipment in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
ProPublica revealed last week that Zach Fuentes, President Donald Trump’s former deputy chief of staff, formed a company in early April and 11 days later won a $3 million contract with IHS to provide specialized respirator masks to the agency for use in Navajo hospitals. The contract was granted with limited competitive bidding.
