Rudy Giuliani told The Washington Post Thursday that the chances of President Trump sitting down for a talk with Kim Jong Un is still higher than a presidential interview with special counsel Robert Mueller.
“I think it is more inevitable than a Mueller interview,” said the former New York City mayor and Trump legal team member. “At least they’re not going to try to trap him into Korean perjury.”
President Trump reportedly decided to cancel the scheduled meeting with the North Korean leader after the U.S. advance team was “stood up” for a meeting about logistics. (RELATED: North Korea Failed to Collaborate During Summit Plans Leading To Trump’s Decision To Cancel)
“On Secretary (of State Mike) Pompeo’s second trip to Pyongyang, North Korea promised that the two sides would meet in Singapore last week, to jointly work on the logistical preparations for the summit,” said a senior White House official to Yonhap News reporters.
Giuliani and Trump allies believe that Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign has widened to include allegations that the president may have tried to obstruct justice, and that the president speaking with Mueller could lead to a perjury trap.
