"The president's not going to fire them because that would be playing into the hands, of playing the victim, Watergate", Giuliani told Fox News Sunday. "We have to know, however, before we can recommend to the President whether or not to be interviewed". You can't - if there is collusion with a guy 50 rungs down on the campaign - not that I'm saying it happened, but, if it did, I don't know - I don't know what that means.
Giuliani since joining the president's legal team has grappled with the possibility of a sit-down interview between Mueller and Trump.
Speaking to CNN's Dana Bash on State of the Union on Sunday, Giuliani discussed what Trump and his team are calling 'Spygate, ' an as-yet unproven allegation that the Federal Bureau of Investigation infiltrated the Trump campaign for political purposes.
Mr. Mueller's investigation has so dominated the American political scene in its first year that anything short of a full public airing of its inquiry into the Russian election meddling would nearly certainly trigger a public outcry, or at least an even more intensified news-media quest for details.
"They are tearing down law enforcement, trying to destroy the Department of Justice for this P.R. campaign, in order to discredit investigators", he said.
President #Trump's attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani switched gears Wednesday, saying that he would prefer the president grant an interview to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's office and that a decision would be made within "the next couple weeks".
In a separate development Sunday, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee called on voters to "throw the bums out" of Congress whom he has accused of trying to help Trump undermine the special counsel's Russian Federation inquiry.

Where did the idea of a campaign "spy" in the Trump campaign originate? "And I don't know who this person was". Giuliani adds the White House may urge the Justice Department "to re-evaluate" the investigation .
Whether Trump will agree to be interviewed as part of the probe remains uncertain.
Mr. Giuliani's assertion suggests that The Hussein Obama Administration was complicit in some unethical political maneuvers in what was a tightly contested and well-funded 2016 Presidential election.
"If they don't show us these documents, well, we are just going to have to say no", Giuliani said.
When asked if he thought the ongoing investigation was legitimate, Giuliani said "not anymore".
"Of course we have to do it", he said on CNN. Members of Congress, Democrats and Republicans, are going to be informed a lot by their constituents. He said he felt "pretty comfortable with because there has been none", but isn't as comfortable as Trump is with potential obstruction.
Clapper was in the CNN studio during Giuliani's interview, and responded with a joke that getting called a "clown" wasn't as bad as some of Trump's insults of him.
But Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said he told Mr. Flood at one of the meetings that he had no business being there.
