Apparently Giuliani is the boss of everything

Giuliani says Trump will not answer questions. Mind you he’s been saying that for weeks, but maybe now he’s saying it for real no backsies.

President Donald Trump will not answer federal investigators’ questions, in writing or in person, about whether he tried to block the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, one of the president’s attorneys told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said questions about obstruction of justice were a “no-go.”

Because look: he stole the election fair and square and now he’s in there and you can’t do a damn thing about it so ha.

Giuliani’s statement was the most definitive rejection yet of special counsel Robert Mueller’s efforts to interview the president about any efforts to obstruct the investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and Russians.

Most definitive how? Jonathan Lemire doesn’t say.

If the legal team holds its stance, it could force Mueller to try to subpoena the president, likely triggering a standoff that would lead to the Supreme Court.

And that’s why Trump nominated Kavanaugh.

Mueller’s office has previously sought to interview the president about the obstruction issue, including his firing last year of former FBI Director James Comey and his public attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump’s legal team has argued that the president has the power to hire and fire appointees and the special counsel does not have the authority to ask him to explain those decisions. Giuliani said Thursday the team was steadfast in that position.

So it’s basically just “I can because I can and it doesn’t matter how corrupt and criminal it is, you can’t touch me, so ha.” In other words the US is an authoritarian kleptocracy and that’s the end of it.

Though the president has publicly said he was eager to face questions from Mueller, his lawyers have been far more reluctant to make him available for an interview and have questioned whether Mueller has the right to ask him about actions that he is authorized, under the Constitution, to take as president.

This is what I mean; this is fucked up. We shouldn’t be having a criminal guy who does criminal things telling us we can’t touch him because of the Constitution – the one that he 1. knows nothing about and 2. shits on every chance he gets. We shouldn’t have thug Giuliani thugging around the place and telling us the thugs can do whatever they want. This is ALL WRONG.
