Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani wants to see all communications between Mueller’s staffers to see if there are any anti-Trump messages he should be made aware of. He says he would be willing to bet there are at least 2 or 3 that are using that type of language.
There have already been 5 staffers who were caught sending anti-Trump messages including Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Kevin Clinesmith as well as FBI lawyers known as FBI Lawyers 1 and 5. Peter Strzok even said in one text message that he would stop Trump from becoming president. At the same time, the same investigators who worked on the Hillary Clinton cover-up sang her praises. But they still insist no bias affected the investigation.
Giuliani is working on negotiations for the president to be interviewed by Mueller’s team. He says Trump is willing to answer questions on collusion but not on obstruction of justice as it pertains to firing dirty cop James Comey.
An FBI lawyer named Kevin Clinesmith has also been identified as sending anti-Trump messages. Clinesmith was the FBI’s top attorney on the Russia investigation starting in early 2017. He joined the Mueller team and lasted through this February, when his text messages were recovered during the inspector general’s investigation.
Clinesmith was one of the lawyers who took part in a Feb. 16, 2017 interview with former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about the timing of his contacts with a Maltese professor during the campaign.
Giuliani also shed light on the Trump legal team’s plans for a potential interview with Mueller. He said that Trump is open to an interview to discuss allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Giuliani reiterated Trump’s denials on the issue. But the former New York City mayor suggested that Trump is unwilling to field questions from Mueller regarding the obstruction of justice portion of his investigation. Mueller, a former FBI director, is reportedly looking into whether Trump obstructed justice in the firing of James Comey as FBI director.
