Giuliani: Trump interview with Mueller would happen 'over my dead body'

Sunday 23:39 GMT

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, on Sunday ruled out a face to face interview between the president and special counsel Robert Mueller – because he fears investigators would try to trap Trump into lying.

The latter references involve the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the governing body of the Democratic party, and, presumably, Hillary Clinton, Trump’s rival for the White House, whom he nicknamed Crooked Hillary because she was investigated by the FBI for using a private server for emails while she was secretary of state, and admonished, though cleared of any illegal activity.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani told "Fox News Sunday" that President Trump will sit down one-on-one with Special Counsel Robert Mueller "over my dead body" amid bombshell new revelations in the false statements case against ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, whom Giuliani said was "railroaded" and "framed."

Sunday 12:39 GMT

The president’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen's interview on Friday did little to support his claims that Trump directed him to make hush-money payments, The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway said on the “Special Report” All-Star Panel.

COHEN SAYS TRUMP KNEW HUSH-MONEY PAYMENTS TO STORMY DANIELS, KAREN MCDOUGAL WERE WRONG. “I think if you have Michael Cohen there to answer any questions you have, you might ask for some specifics. It was all very nebulous,” Hemingway added.

Gregg Jarrett: Michael Flynn is innocent, wrongly prosecuted by Mueller to hurt Trump

Sunday 04:13 GMT

Michael Flynn is the victim of a grave injustice and Robert Mueller, James Comey and everyone else involved in framing Flynn should be ashamed of themselves for their actions against him.

New documents released Friday by Special Counsel Robert Mueller make it clear that Flynn is a victim of an overzealous team of prosecutors absolutely desperate to show that President Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.

The Meaning of ‘Synergy’: Working Together, for Good and Ill

Sunday 03:18 GMT

Long a buzzword in business for the benefits of collaboration, it took on a darker significance in a Robert Mueller memo as a possible synonym for collusion

It was borrowed from the Latin “synergia,” which combined two Greek-derived roots: “syn-” meaning “together,” and “ergon” meaning “work.” When it first showed up in English in the 17th century, “synergy” was used by theologians to refer to cooperation between human will and divine grace.

Thursday US briefing: Bruised Theresa May sees off leadership coup

Friday 09:54 GMT

The embattled British prime minister, Theresa May, flew to Brussels on Thursday to continue Brexit talks with the EU after surviving a vote of no confidence from MPs in her own party.

May won the poll of Conservative lawmakers by 83 votes, but her leadership was left damaged by the loss of support from more than a third of her MPs. She has signalled she will step down before the next election but, in the meantime, it remains unclear what effect the government infighting will have on her Brexit strategy.
