Origins of Mueller probe illegtimate: Trump lawyer


"The president's not going to fire them because that would be playing into the hands, of playing the victim, Watergate", Giuliani told Fox News Sunday.

Former US President Barack Hussein Obama was aware of the Federal Bureau of Investigation mole embedded in Donald J.

Nothing, Giuliani conceded. But, there is an issue with the government spying on a campaign. Watch CBN News' Gary Lane's interview with Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton to find out who he says the Department of Justice is protecting.

Then Bash specifically cited the "Spygate" claims and how no evidence had been offered to support them, and noted to Giuliani that he was both an experienced politician and a lawyer who clearly understood that the Trump team could feel free to attack the Russian Federation investigation, since Mueller and his team would not be able to publicly defend themselves.

"We are more convinced as we see it that this is a rigged investigation".

Asked how he was "so sure" there had not been any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian interests, Giuliani, a one-time prosecutor, said, "Fifty years of investigative experience tells me they don't have a darn thing". In light of the new information, Trump and Giuliani have spoken out against what they term "spygate". Trump canceled that meeting Thursday, but it may still take place.

The timing of any such interview was being heavily influenced by the possible Trump summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, he said.

When host Dana Bash pressed Giuliani on whether he thought special counsel Robert Mueller's probe was legitimate, he said, "not anymore".

"To me, it just exceeds logic and credulity that they didn't affect the election, and it's my belief they actually turned it", former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said earlier this week.

Giuliani effectively admitted that the frequent attacks on the probe were created to influence public opinion and take the air out of any push for impeachment.

"And he's obviously probing the edges as much as he can to see how far Congress will go, and we've got to push back harder than we have".

Giuliani said he was concerned that the president would become a target or that the interview would be a perjury trap, because the "truth is relative".

"Members of Congress, Democrats and Republicans, are going to be informed a lot by their constituents", he added.

On ABC's This Week on Sunday, the Democrat Adam Schiff, ranking member of the House intelligence committee, said: "This is part of the propaganda machine".

"It is the FBI's job to investigate counterintelligence and that there are people out there with a known history of potential links to a foreign power and they are operating in the orbit of any political campaign or any political office", he said.
