Giuliani: Trump will decide within 10 days whether to sit for Mueller interview

Rudy Giuliani said Thursday that President Trump and his legal team will decide within a "week to 10 days" if Trump will grant an interview to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Giuliani, Trump's head lawyer, told Politico that Trump and his attorneys will spend the weekend mulling over Mueller's latest proposal, which would limit the questions related to obstruction of justice and allow Trump to provide some written answers, and then make a decision. Giuliani said Trump wants to meet with Mueller, but the legal team is contemplating saying no to an interview. If they do agree, Giuliani added, the team will insist Mueller limit questions to alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

"We don't want questioning on obstruction," he said. "They would have to concede that. It depends on how much they want his testimony on the other [topic.]"
