The so-called “witch hunt” to find evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia will come to an end on Sept. 1.
Trump’s top lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said that special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into an obstruction of justice by the president will end prior to corrupting the midterms in November.
According to The New York Times, Mueller shared a timeline two weeks ago that included negotiations over whether Trump is willing to hold an interview by Mueller’s team.
The Washington Post reported Sunday that the wrapping up of the probe is all dependent on whether Trump is willing to be interviewed by investigators — a tactic aimed to pressure the president.
While reports state that the Mueller probe will end in 103 days, that does not signal the final end of Mueller’s work.
“You don’t want another repeat of the 2016 election where you get contrary reports at the end and you don’t know how it affected the election,” Giuliani explained.
Giuliani was referring to FBI Director James Comey reopening of an investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server.
To this day, Democrats still blame Comey for Clinton losing the election because he opened the case again so close to Election Day.
The president reportedly is willing to be interviewed. Giuliani told The Times he is discussing a possible time, but that is must be after the planned summit between North Korea and the U.S. to not distract from the historic meeting.
Giuliani stated that he wants to see an investigation into Comey and his role into the leaking of information regarding his meetings with Trump.
“We want the concentration of this to be on Comey versus the president’s credibility, and I think we win that and people get that,” Giuliani said.
