Giuliani: When Mueller’s report shows Trump’s innocence we will admit he was ‘fair’

President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Saturday said when special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into alleged collusion and obstruction by the president’s campaign proves Trump did nothing wrong, “we will have to admit you were fair.”

“Just a few days before 60 day run-up to 2018 elections. If Mueller wants to show he’s not partisan, then issue a report on collusion and obstruction,” Giuliani tweeted. “They will show President Trump did nothing wrong. Then we will have to admit you were fair. And we will.”

Giuliani has been urging the special counsel’s office to wrap up the investigation and issue a report on election interference before the 2018 midterms.{mosads}

Trump accused the special counsel in a tweet earlier this year of “meddling” with the midterm elections, and has sought to cast the Mueller investigation as a Democratic effort to obstruct his administration.

“The 13 Angry Democrats (plus people who worked 8 years for Obama) working on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, will be MEDDLING with the mid-term elections, especially now that Republicans (stay tough!) are taking the lead in Polls,” Trump tweeted in May.

“There was no Collusion, except by the Democrats!” he added.

Trump has also accused Mueller of being conflicted and his investigation biased.

Mueller’s investigation entered a new stage this week with eight guilty verdicts being handed down in the first trial of Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman. The president’s former longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to bank and tax fraud and campaign finance violations on the same day. Both cases resulted in part from evidence uncovered by Mueller’s team.
