Rudy Giuliani says he is not expecting anything new in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony — but if there is, it would be “highly questionable.”

In an interview with Hill.TV that aired Monday, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer expressed confidence there would be no bombshells during Mueller’s Wednesday appearance.

“I can’t imagine he’s going to say anything that we don’t know,” Giuliani said. “If he does, it would be highly questionable — how come you’re saying it now and you didn’t say it in the report?”

“And number two: It would be totally unethical,” he said. “If a prosecutor doesn’t bring a case, then the prosecutor’s got to keep his mouth shut about the facts because it is so unfair to the person who after all isn’t going to be charged.”

Mueller will appear before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees to testify about his two-year Russia meddling investigation.

Giuliani argued last week he does not think the appearance is even “proper.”

Nor does Trump.

“Highly conflicted Robert Mueller should not be given another bite at the apple,” Trump tweeted Monday. “In the end, it will be bad for him and the phony Democrats in Congress who have done nothing but waste time on this ridiculous witch hunt.”
