Rudy Giuliani doesn’t rule out President Trump taking the 5th Amendment in Russia probe


Rudy Giuliani would not rule out the possibility that his client, President Trump, could invoke his Fifth Amendment rights while testifying to special counsel Robert Mueller in connection with the probe into Russia’s interference in US elections.

The former New York City mayor said on ABC News’ “This Week,” “How could I ever be confident of that?”

“Every lawyer in America thinks he’d be a fool to testify. I’ve got a client who wants to testify….I hope we get a chance to tell him the risk that he’s taking,” he added.

Meanwhile, Trump told reporters on Friday he’d be willing to speak with Mueller if he’s “treated fairly.”

“You have a group of investigators, and they say that I am not a target,” Trump said. “But you have a group of investigators that are all Democrats…Bob Mueller worked for Obama for eight years.”

“I have to find that we’re going to be treated fairly because everybody sees it now, and it is a pure witch hunt,” Trump continued. “Right now, it’s a pure witch hunt.”
