Giuliani: ‘Over My Dead Body’ Will Mueller Interview Trump

Giuliani: ‘Over My Dead Body’ Will Mueller Interview TrumpWASHINGTON — With a number of probes moving closer to the Oval Office, President Donald Trump and his attorney unleashed a fresh series of attacks Sunday on the investigators, questioning their integrity while categorically ruling out the possibility of a presidential interview with the special counsel. Trump and Rudy Giuliani used Twitter and television interviews to deliver a series of broadsides against special counsel Robert Mueller and federal prosecutors in New York. Giuliani said he was “disgusted” by the tactics used by Mueller in his probe into Russian election interference, including in securing guilty pleas from the president’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn on a charge of lying to federal investigators.

Hannity guest host Jonathan Gilliam: Michael Cohen’s crimes “have nothing to d…JONATHAN GILLIAM (GUEST HOST): We live in a country where we’re not supposed to fear the government coming after us because they don’t share our beliefs, for instance. We live in a country where the Founding Fathers took great steps to ensure that whatever religion you want to feel, whatever opinion you want to have about a politician, or the police, or anybody else for that matter, it’s protected. It’s your opinion, you can have it. And one of the ways that those protections carry out throughout the Constitution is that we are protected from being held as guilty before we are proven innocent. And when we look at the case of Eddie Gallagher, which again we’re going to talk about later; and we look at the case of President Trump with this Russia, fake Russia collusion; when we look…
