Giuliani Expertly Flips the Script: Calls for Mueller To Be Investigated

Path 27

Two years in and still nothing on actual “Russian Collusion.” The public outcry about enough is enough has now been joined by Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for President Donald Trump, reported Newsmax.

The outspoken former New York City mayor made his thoughts known in interviews with HillTV‘s John Solomon and Buck Sexton. Among other things he shared, he was clear on the fact he thought special counsel Robert Mueller should be investigated.

The Hill wrote that during his HillTV interviews, Giuliani said, “Mueller should be investigated for destruction of evidence for allowing those text messages from Strzok to be erased, messages that would show the state of mind and tactics of his lead anti-Trump FBI agent at the start of his probe.”

Giuliani was referring to the Justice Department inspector general report that revealed a failure to save text messages between then Mueller probe team members Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. In tweets, Giuliani hit Mueller and company hard about the missing texts, which number more than 19,000.

Do you agree that Mueller should be investigated?

Giuliani added during his HillTV interviews that if investigating needs to be done, Mueller and the missing texts is a good place for it to happen. “That should be investigated, damn it, that should be investigated fully. You want a special counsel, get one for that.”

The texts erasure has been explained as policy and a “collection tool failure.” Giuliani pointed out based on what happened during the Watergate scandal, how problematic the situation really is.

“It’s actually worse than Rose Mary Woods. She erased less than 19 minutes of conversation, but the FBI got rid of more than 19,000 messages.” The Hill notes that the text messages the IG was unable to retrieve are now “lost forever.”

But Giuliani wasn’t done with explaining why Mueller and company should be investigated. He told HillTV that the use of the Christopher Steele dossier was also worthy of investigation.

“Do I think that is improper? Yeah, that borders on — that sounds to me a lot more like a false statement than some of the ones they charged.” The Hill reported that the dossier in question was used in order to “justify a search warrant on a Trump adviser without telling the court it was paid for by 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic Party.”

Giuliani also pointed to how former Trump attorney Michael Cohen was used by the Mueller team because they allegedly allowed Cohen to make false statements during his sentencing hearing. “He just lied the other day. He told the judge, ‘I was fiercely loyal to Donald Trump.’”

“No, he wasn’t. He taped him surreptitiously while he was fiercely loyal.”

“He hid it. And he disclosed it.”

Then when the Mueller team prosecutors didn’t correct Cohen’s statement, it was ” …unethical in and of itself. Making a false statement to a court, even a lawyer, you have to correct it.”

The public has pointed out other reasons why the Mueller team should be investigated. This primarily revolves around how evidence allegedly points to “Russian collusion” by former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, but the focus remains on Trump, despite no apparent evidence.

Giuliani pointed out how the investigation has gone totally off the rails in terms of investigating alleged “Russia Collusion” by Trump. “We’re now four degrees of separation from the original mandate of the investigation, which was collusion which did not occur.”

Like the public, he is hopeful the investigation will end soon. But in the meantime, he plans on fighting them and pointing out the problems, every step of the way.
