Gi­u­liani tells Mueller to end probe

The West Australian - - WORLD -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Gi­u­liani is urg­ing spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller’s team to wrap up its in­ves­ti­ga­tion on the eve of the probe’s oneyear an­niver­sary.

Mr Gi­u­liani told Fox News that Mr Mueller “has all the facts to make a de­ci­sion” af­ter 12 months in­ves­ti­gat­ing Rus­sian med­dling in the elec­tion and pos­si­ble col­lu­sion with Mr Trump’s campaign.

“Mueller should now bring this to a close,” Mr Gi­u­liani, the for­mer mayor of New York, said.

“It’s been a year. He’s got 1.4 mil­lion doc­u­ments. He’s in­ter­viewed 28 wit­nesses. And he has noth­ing, which is why he wants to bring the Pres­i­dent into an in­ter­view.

“It’s about time to say enough. We’ve tor­tured this Pres­i­dent enough,” he added, de­scrib­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion as be­ing “like a big weight” on Mr Trump’s back.

Mr Gi­u­liani’s team has been weigh­ing up whether to al­low Mr Trump to sit for an in­ter­view with Mr Mueller. He said he had been ask­ing what Mr Mueller ex­pects to learn from Mr Trump in an in­ter­view that he does not know al­ready.

Mr Trump has panned the in­ves­ti­ga­tion as a witch-hunt.
