Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's current personal attorney, said that he would not let the President be interviewed by Robert Mueller, saying that such an interview would only happen over his "dead body."
"Over my dead body. But you know, I could be dead," said Giuliani on Fox News Sunday when asked about sitting down with the Special Counsel on a sometimes-contentious interview on Fox News Sunday.
Giuliani initially tried to sidestep the question, claiming that the Special Counsel was intending to ask about, "several unpaid parking tickets back in 1986 or 1987" as a way to trivialize the importance of the actions of President Trump currently under investigation.
Trump has signaled publicly many times over 2018 his own willingness to sit down with Mueller, including floating dates in January, May, June, and July.
In January, Trump told reporters he was "looking forward" to such an opportunity, adding, "I would love to do that. I'd like to do it as soon as possible."
Then in March, President Trump said that he would be interested in sitting down with Mueller. "Yes," Trump said at the end of a signing ceremony expanding tariffs on China. "I would like to. I would like to."
Nevertheless, all the talk has not led to actions, while the president continues to push back on the investigation, calling it a "witch hunt" on his Twitter feed, a stance that Giuliani echoed during the Fox News Sunday interview.
The investigation has so far seen 100 criminal counts issues for 33 people and three companies. Of those, eight have been found guilty.
