Transcript for Giuliani: Mueller can't indict Trump
Tom, Ronan, thanks very much. President trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani also making headlines overnight saying the special counsel's team told him they cannot indict a president. Want to go to Cecilia Vega and, Cecilia, Giuliani says this is based on multiple contacts with Mueller's team. Reporter: We have been told during at least one meeting Mueller made it clear to the president's legal team he will not indict president trump. Justice department lawyers have long held the position they don't have the authority to indict a sitting president. Mueller does, though, have the power to issue a report on his findings and turn that in to congress. Could eventually trigger impeachment proceedings and he could name the president as unindicted co-conspirator in court documents but have it point out this is all coming from the president's legal team, George. Mueller's team is not commenting so we really have no idea what he's going to do. Not right thousand we don't. Also yesterday the president with more inflammatory comments on immigration. Want to listen. We have people coming into the country, trying to come in, we're stopping a lot of them, but we're taking people out of the country. You wouldn't believe how bad these people are. These aren't people. These are animals. Reporter: These aren't people, these are animals so that was during a white house meeting on sanctuary cities and it came after someone remarked about ms13 gang members. He didn't make it clear whether he was talking about gang members or immigrants in general. California a governor is blasting the president saying he's lying on immigration. Lying on crime. George, I got to say immigrant communities hear this as a dog whistle and say this is downright dangerous language. Meantime, the president saying Mexico is doing nothing for us as he's trying to close those North American free trade agreements with Mexico. Thanks very much.
