Rudy Giuliani Calls Getting Trump Through Robert Mueller's Questions 'A Nightmare'




 

The process of getting President Donald Trump to answer special counsel Robert Mueller's questions concerning the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the U.S. elections was "a nightmare," according to the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

"It took him about three weeks to do what would normally take two days," Giuliani told The Atlantic in an interview published Thursday.

In November, the president addressed the topic of the special counsel's questions, telling reporters that he "was asked a series of questions" and that he "answered them very easily."

Trump's legal team submitted written answers to the questions on Nov. 20.

It's not uncommon for Trump to contradict the sentiments of someone else in the White House.

In late October, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mexico had "stepped up in an unprecedented way" with regard to the migrant caravans planning to enter the United States. Trump ― again, unsurprisingly ― contradicted her the same morning by saying Mexico was "unwilling" to help stop the caravan.
