'Put Up or Shut Up': Giuliani Ruthlessly Tears into Mueller, Calls for Report To Be Submitted
Rudy Giuliani, the hard-charging former New York City mayor and current lawyer for President Donald Trump, has been hammering special counsel Robert Mueller almost as hard as the left hits Trump.
Giuliani’s latest attack revolves around bringing an end to the two-year investigation into alleged “Russian Collusion” by the Trump presidential campaign. Giuliani has made it clear that Mueller has had plenty of time for his investigation and his report needs to be submitted.
As The Hill reported, Giuliani said Mueller needed to “put up or shut up” while being interviewed on the John Catsimatidis radio show on Sunday. “The Cats Roundtable with John Catsimatidis” show began with Catsimatidis stating that the investigation conducted by Mueller was supposed to have wrapped up by Christmas.

He later added that it was also supposed to have been wrapped up before the midterm elections, but still it continues. When asked about it, Giuliani had a lot to say about that and the flaws in the investigation.
” … (I)t should have been wrapped up in May or June,” Giuliani said. “That’s when they figured out they had no evidence of collusion, no evidence of conspiracy to hack.”
“Collusion’s not a crime, by the way. I don’t even know why they’re investigating it.
“It’s not even a crime. You have to show a conspiracy to hack.
“They don’t have any evidence of that, which is the reason they don’t submit a report. ‘Cause they’re embarrassed.”
Giuliani also hit on the expenses the Mueller investigation has racked up.
“They’ve spent somewhere around $30 million or more, American dollars, they prosecuted some false statements, they prosecuted some tax cases, they put a guy in jail for 14 days, Cohen himself in jail for three years, that’s it. They indicted a bunch of Russians that’ll never come to the United States, which is what we used to call ‘showboat indictment,’ when I was U.S. attorney,” Giuliani said.
Then Giuliani dropped the hammer on Mueller and company.
“So, I’m challenging them to put up or shut up. It’s time for them to submit a report, they can do it to the Justice Department, they should allow us to read it, as promised.”
He added, “If I’m wrong I’ll apologize. But I know I’m not wrong.”
Giuliani, like Trump, is not shy about taking to Twitter to share this thoughts or hit at opponents. He reiterated his challenge to Mueller on the social media platform as well.
I challenge Mueller to put up or shut up. You have no evidence of the President being involved in a conspiracy with anyone including Russia to hack. And you also have no evidence of collusion. It’s been 2 years so submit a report to DOJ and we will answer it.

Just days ago, Giuliani hit at Mueller with a different tack, stating that the special counsel was really the one who needed to be investigated. He proceeded to lay out a strong case with numerous reasons why, as well.
In that, too, he pointed to numerous flaws and concerns with the investigation, such as “destruction of evidence,” and the use of the all-but completely discredited Christopher Steele dossier.
If the left thinks they have a pit bull in Mueller, Trump certainly has one in Giuliani. In this battle between Mueller and Giuliani, who do you think will win? Trump supporters are banking on Giuliani getting a K.O. punch in that will end the investigation for good.
