Giuliani says he might reach a deal this week for Mueller to interview Trump

A deal is in the works for President Trump to be interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the president's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said Sunday — and it could be finalized this week.

"We have an outstanding offer to them," Giuliani said on CBS. "I can't tell you what the offer looks like except there is sort of area of questioning and a group of restrictions on it that we could live with," he continued. "It relates basically to the Russia collusion thing, which we think there's no evidence of the president doing anything wrong. So we don't really have much of a problem with it."

Questions on Trump obstructing justice are less likely to be permitted, Giuliani said, because the Trump team rejects the premise that the president could be guilty of obstruction for firing former FBI Director James Comey.

Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan noted Giuliani has promised an interview deal before, previously naming July 4 as a likely deadline. "Well," Giuliani replied, "a lot happened since July 4."
