What is it about some of the interesting comments that are being made by former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, since he became one of Trump’s trusted laywers? Does Giuliani mean to say the things he’s saying, or is he playing some big game of cat and mouse with the liberal media?
“In no case can he be subpoenaed or indicted,” Giuliani told HuffPost. “I don’t know how you can indict while he’s in office. No matter what it is.”
The former New York City mayor went on to say that impeachment would be the course of action if Trump committed a crime, even in the extreme hypothetical circumstance that he shot Comey.
“If he shot James Comey, he’d be impeached the next day,” Giuliani told HuffPost. “Impeach him, and then you can do whatever you want to do to him.”
Mueller has told Trump’s lawyers that investigators need to speak with the president to determine whether he sought to obstruct the probe.
However, Trump’s legal team has been reluctant to allow such an interview out of concern that prosecutors could use the president’s words against him.
Giuliani said earlier on Sunday that Trump most likely has the power to pardon himself.
“He’s not, but he probably does,” he told ABC News.
“He has no intention of pardoning himself,” he continued. “That’s another really interesting constitutional question: Can the president pardon himself?” he added.
“It would be an open question. I think it would probably get answered by, ‘gosh that’s what the Constitution says.’ And if you want to change it, change it. But, yeah.” –The Hill
