White House lawyer Rudy Giuliani said President Donald Trump would not sit down with Robert Mueller until they see the documents relating to the “spygate” briefings, according to the Associated Press.
“We want to see the documents—this matters far more to my client than to any member of Congress,” Giuliani said. He previously stated that he wanted a briefing on the matter, similar to the ones House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy received.
