President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, just warned to Special Counsel Robert Mueller that his investigation will “blow up” on his own team. He said that Mueller himself may be investigated for “collusion.”
On Wednesday, Giuliani accused Mueller of relying on fake Russian intelligence meant to smear Trump. He suggested his investigation was so “corrupt and illegitimate” it would lead to reforms on the scale of Watergate to stop it from being repeated.
The former New York City mayor claimed the ex-FBI director “had no case” and only wants the president to answer questions under oath so he could be tricked into a “perjury trap.”
Giuliani made these comments to Sean Hannity with Fox News. He continued to accuse Mueller of relying on the “fake” dossier put together by ex-British spy Christopher Steele. It is the document that contained allegations of conspiracy between Trump’s campaign team and the Russian government.
“This is a totally illegitimate investigation based on a report that was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats – perhaps the biggest illegality or collusion so far,” he said.
Hannity entered the fray suggesting the dossier contained fake Russian evidence that was itself intended to “influence the election” by smearing Trump.
“Maybe if Mueller and his band of Democrats were fair minded maybe they’d investigate – maybe that’s the collusion,” Giuliani replied.
“The real story here is not that this case is going to fizzle. It’s going to blow up on them. The real question is what we were talking about before,” he said.
“There’s a lot more to what they did that nobody knows about yet. A lot more to the obstruction of justice, to the collusion, to the fake dossier to try and bring Steele in when he was completely discredited.”
Giuliani emphatically stated: “We’re restating what we have been saying for months: It is time for the Office of Special Counsel to conclude its inquiry without further delay,” he told the New York Times.
