Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller is aiming to finish the probe into potential obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump by September. Giuliani, Trump's attorney, confirmed to CNN that Mueller's office shared its timeline with him about a month ago. The New York Times first reported on Mueller's time frame. The former New York mayor said Mueller gave him the information within the context of a discussion about whether Trump would do an interview with the special counsel. Giuliani said the impression he got was that Mueller was saying if the President did do an interview, then the investigation could be wrapped up by that date. A spokesman for the special counsel declined comment. As the Times noted, an end to the obstruction portion of the investigation would not be an end to the special counsel's full investigation, which includes examining alleged Russian influence in the 2016 election.
