On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Trump legal team member Rudy Giuliani stated he will not let the president testify unless the documents related to the confidential informant in the Trump campaign are produced.
Giuliani said, “Well, the fact is that this investigation never should have taken place in the first place, if we consider the counterintelligence investigation, the spying, the Spygate, all appropriate descriptions. Here’s what I want to know. I want to see the documents, which Trey Gowdy has never seen, which is outrageous. And I’m not going to let my client testify, the president of the United States, even if he wants to, without those documents being produced…we’re going to go over it with a fine-tooth comb. Only if and when we find that this was handled appropriately and there’s some evidence on which they can base this phony investigation will we have him testify. But if there is no evidence, which I assume there is no evidence, then, I mean, he shouldn’t testify. The whole thing should be squashed — I mean, it should be ended immediately. And we’ll challenge Mueller to write whatever you’ve got.”
