Trump says lawyers have advised him against Mueller talks

President Donald Trump's growing desire for his lawyers to more forcefully counter the ongoing special counsel investigation drove yet another shakeup of his legal team Wednesday, putting the White House on a war footing with federal prosecutors examining Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.

"I would love to speak because we've done nothing wrong".

"I would love to go".

McGahn, who knows Flood through their legal careers and work on conservative causes, has praised him in conversations with Trump and senior White House aides, seeing Flood as someone who shared his instincts and his wariness of overly engaging with the special counsel investigation, the people said.

Twenty-three years later, in allowing Paula Jones" sexual harassment suit to go forward against President Bill Clinton, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote: "We have made clear that in a criminal case the powerful interest in the "fair administration of criminal justice" requires that the evidence be given under appropriate circumstances lest the "very integrity of the judicial system' be eroded".

But the former NY mayor has come under fire for saying of the alleged affair with Daniels, "Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton".

It is beyond imagining that even the politics of the United States could simultaneously put before us two protagonists such as Donald Trump and James Comey-the one a dedicated amoralist who ascends to the presidency, the other an Federal Bureau of Investigation director who quotes Reinhold Niebuhr.

On Fox News Wednesday night, Giuliani said Trump did the Lester Holt interview "to explain to the American people the president was not the target of the investigation".

"It's the theory of law - that if someone pushes on you, you push back three or four times harder", the person said.

His general counsel had expressed concern about providing that reassurance to Trump, but Comey said he thought it was probably necessary as a way to preserve their relationship.

"At some point in the future I would like to save the money", he said.

Bannon acknowledged Giuliani had caused some problems with his Fox News interview but said there's a larger strategy at play here. "But he really has his heart into it. And he's said he's never seen anything so disgusting". His view of Mueller soured further after raids last month that targeted one of his personal lawyers, Michael Cohen, in a separate investigation. On Wednesday, Trump alluded to a complaint by House Republicans who threatened to impeach Rosenstein for not providing them with documents related to the Russian Federation investigation and other matters. "He's a great guy".

The source who has worked with the president's legal team said the more aggressive approach plays to skills that Trump knows well - and which rewarded him by his stunning 2016 election upset. "And virtually everything said has been said incorrectly and it's been said wrong or it's been covered wrong by the press".
