Rudy Giuliani on Friday said that special counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to narrow the scope of any potential interview with President Donald Trump.

A guest on CNN's "New Day" morning program, the former New York City mayor and member of the president's legal team, said that special counsel has whittled down the topics from five general categories.

"It's accurate as of Wednesday night," Giuliani told CNN. "We received a communication from them. We did go through like five letters and they didn't send us a response. They sent us a response; I can't go into detail but narrowing the subjects for questioning, down to about two. "

One of the topics thrown out of a potential interview with Trump, Giuliani told CNN, is anything related to Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen, saying it's his belief that special counsel doesn't think there's any connection to the president in that probe.

"No secret that the whole thing with Michael Cohen is out because that's in the Southern District of New York. It's my belief (Mueller) turned all of it over. Now that doesn't mean they don't communicate, as they should," Giuliani said.

"The president would testify tomorrow, if it was about the truth," Giuliani told CNN. "The truth is, he had nothing to do with Russia. Lying is black and white. It isn't black and white. The president's not gonna lie. Let's get that straight. There's nothing to lie about."

Giuliani also addressed the second day news that there was one - possibly two - FBI agent embedded in the Trump 2016 campaign for the purpose of spying.

"I don't know for sure, nor does the president, that there really was one. We're told that," Giuliani told CNN.

The New York Times broke the story Wednesday night.

"The reporting corroborates what people have told us off the record. You don't know if they're right or not. They're people who knew a little about the investigation," Giuliani said.

However, Giuliani on Thursday said he was "shocked" by the report, implying that the NYT report was the first they had heard of such an operation.

"They (DOJ) should tell us if there was" FBI informants embedded to spy on Trump campaign. "Their obligation is on them," Giuliani said.
