Giuliani says he doesn't know if Trump would pardon Cohen

Trump urges Mueller to admit conflict of interest in pending investigation

Manafort faces a barrage of bank fraud and tax evasion charges in a case that is the first public test for Mueller's team.

Mr Mueller is a Republican like Mr Trump, as is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who hired the special counsel, and Attorney-General Jeff Sessions.

For months, Trump had insisted that there was "no collusion" between his campaign and Russian Federation. "The President didn't hack".

"He used the word 'should, ' he didn't use the word 'must'".

In subsequent interviews on Monday, the president's lawyer claimed that, in fact, he was only speaking off of as-yet unverified details from reporters who had contacted Team Trump to ask about the planning meeting.

President Donald Trump's legal defense appeared to take a drastic shift on Monday morning when his always outspoken lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, took a new line against claims that the president's campaign colluded with a foreign government.

He has so far lodged dozens of indictments, including those of suspected Russian hackers, and secured guilty pleas from at least three Trump aides charged with conspiracy and lying to investigators.

Cruise line faces backlash over shooting of polar bear
Spokeswoman Negar Etminan explained that all of the firm's cruise ships have polar bear guards on board during trips. In 2015, Czech Jakub Moravec was pulled out of the tent by a polar bear, but escaped with slight damage.


There is no indication that Mueller would agree to those narrow parameters, however, and Trump's legal team believes a subpoena could be possible if talks break down.

Trump's latest tweets come just days after he launched a separate Twitter attack against Mueller and the Russian Federation investigation. "Put up - I mean I guess if we were playing poker (you would say) 'Put up or shut up.' What do you got?"

The New York Times, in January article detailing an attempt by Trump to fire Mueller past year that the President ultimately backed off from, said Trump claimed one of Mueller's conflicts stemmed from a dispute over fees at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia.

A Justice Department spokeswoman said the department had no immediate comment on Trump's tweet about ending Mueller's probe.

"I can't keep up with Rudy Giuliani's theories of defense". "I'm sure they are in bad faith about an interview at this point".

Trump, according to The Times, in the past complained to staff about what he called a conflict because the two men had a bad business deal over fees at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., which led to Mueller, who was Federal Bureau of Investigation director at the time, to resign his membership there.

Trump's statement comes after a week in which the President's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, authorized the release of a recording he made between himself and then-candidate Trump talking about a potential payment to a model who claims she had an affair with Trump. Trump has also asserted he didn't know about the meeting.
