Giuliani says his demand for Mueller probe to be suspended was for show

  Giuliani says his demand for Mueller probe to be suspended was for show President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani said on Monday that his call last week for special counsel Robert Mueller's probe to be suspended was just for show. "That's what I'm supposed to do," Giuliani said in an interview with Politico. "What am I supposed to say? That they should investigate him forever? Sorry, I'm not a sucker."The former New York City mayor had called on on the Justice Department last week to end Mueller's investigation and claimed that the department's inspector general's (IG) report on the FBI completely undercut the justification.

The comedian told The Daily Beast that he won’t talk to the special counsel unless he gets subpoenaed. Bob Mueller has some questions for comedian Randy Credico, according to the comedian himself. Credico told radio host Jimmy Dore on Sunday evening that the special counsel

Bob Mueller has some questions for comedian Randy Credico, according to the comedian himself. Credico told radio host Jimmy Dore on Sunday evening that the special counsel has reached out to him for a voluntary interview.

And Credico isn’t going to play ball. He told The Daily Beast he won’t talk to the special counsel unless he gets subpoenaed.

“The last thing that I would like to be known as is a rat,” Credico told The Daily Beast. “I didn’t talk to the House committee and I’m not going to talk to the Senate committee.”

Credico has long interested congressional investigators working on the Russia probes because of his relationship with Trump ally Roger Stone. Stone reportedly claimed to the House intelligence committee that Credico was a backchannel between him and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Stone made comments about Wikileaks during the election that appeared prescient, so any connections between him and Assange are of interest to Russia investigators.

Mueller wants Roger Stone associate to testify. Was Kavanaugh picked to block Mueller probe? Trump lawyers quietly driving talks with Mueller . (CNN) Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed Randy Credico to testify before a grand jury next month, according to Credico' s attorney.

As Robert Mueller ’ s investigation into Russian interference churns on, the list of individuals the special counsel hasn’t interviewed is arguably as Stolar told CNN that it is unclear what Mueller seeks from Credico, but speculated, “They probably want to talk to him about Roger Stone and Julian Assange.”

Credico has denied facilitating any communication between Stone and Assange. But the the Wall Street Journal reported last month that Stone asked Credico to reach out to Assange on his behalf; Credico told the paper he didn’t assent to Stone’s request.

Mueller appears to be zeroing in on Stone. ABC News reported earlier this month that a former social media advisor to Stone took questions from Mueller’s grand jury. And CNN reported last month that Mueller has been asking witnesses about Stone’s finances.

The House intelligence committee subpoenaed Credico in November.

“Both sides are circuses and it’s all political for everybody there,” Credico said. “Whereas the investigators for the Mueller team I take very seriously and it’s not political, it’s professional. You’ve got really professional investigators and prosecutors there and they’re not running for reelection, you know what I mean? So they’re not grandstanding.”

Credico said the request from Mueller’s team came about three weeks ago, and that he and his lawyers declined.

Mueller Taps More Prosecutors to Help With Growing Trump Probe .
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is tapping additional Justice Department resources for help with new legal battles as his year-old investigation of Russian interference with the 2016 election continues to expand. As Mueller pursues his probe, he’s making more use of career prosecutors from the offices of U.S. attorneys and from Justice Department headquarters, as well as FBI agents -- a sign that he may be laying the groundwork to hand off parts of his investigation eventually, several current and former U.S. officials said.
