Giuliani on Trump sitting down with Mueller: "Over my dead body"

Asked by Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" whether President Trump would submit to a sit-down interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani responded, "Good luck ... over my dead body."

The big picture: Giuliani's return to the Sunday morning talk shows reflected what appear to be Trump's newest strategies for attempting to manage his escalating legal exposure. Those include painting prosecutors as biased against the president, downplaying issues like "collusion" or campaign finance violations as non-criminal or civil matters, and claiming witnesses like Michael Flynn and Michael Cohen can't be trusted or were coerced into pleading guilty.
