Rudy Giuliani Names Every Reason Mueller's Doomed in Incredible Fox News Segment


President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has issued a challenge to special counsel Robert Mueller to “put up or shut up.”

Two years into the investigation, Mueller has yet to provide any evidence whatsoever that the president colluded with Russia.

Many Americans are tired of what they perceive as a “witch hunt” and a supreme waste of taxpayer dollars. Giuliani has been putting pressure on Mueller to wrap up the investigation, making the rounds on television to explain not only why the whole thing is a sham but also why Mueller himself should be investigated.

In an appearance Tuesday on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Giuliani presented a concise list of why the investigation is a sham. Some of the points he made on the show are things he’s also noted on Twitter.

Giuliani began by explaining various ways in which, in contradiction to the way the American justice system actually works, the Mueller probe has been “an investigation in search of a crime” rather than an investigation of a crime.

First up on the list is the collusion allegation. Giuliani noted that collusion is not even a crime. This in and of itself points to what Giuliani referred to as “a completely illegitimate attempt to destroy Donald Trump.”

The second item on the list is the firing of former FBI director James Comey, which Giuliani said is also not a crime.

Then came the use of campaign contributions to pay women who accused Trump of sexual harassment. Giuliani said those payments “are not criminal. They’re not even a violation of the campaign finance law.”

“They’re paying off possible civil judgments,” he said, adding that the investigation was really a case of “make up a crime, make up a crime, make up a crime, hoping to find one eventually.”

Do you believe the Mueller investigation into Russian collusion is a 'witch hunt'?

Then Giuliani moved onto another way in which the investigation is a sham. In keeping with “looking for crimes to investigate” and “making up crimes,” Giuliani brought up former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

“What they did to Flynn was outrageous,” Giuliani said. “He told them something, they had the paper (transcript) in their drawer. If they were searching for the truth, they would have put that in front of him and said, ‘General, refresh your recollection.'”

Giuliani explained how he knew “this game” because he “used to play it, a lot more ethically than they do.” He said Mueller and his team were getting away with behavior that was unethical, “possibly illegal” and “totally reprehensible … on the part of the prosecutor.”

He talked about the FISA warrants used to launch the investigation into the Trump team, stating the “four affidavits are false. They are false affidavits.” He and host Sean Hannity then discussed how if anyone else provided false affidavits they would be under investigation.

Giuliani ended on the destruction of approximately 19,000 text messages between former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. He disputed the claim that destroying them was part of the FBI’s evidence preservation policy and said action needed to be investigated.

Giuliani promised that after Mueller releases his report on the investigation he will have his own report to release. His report will address and answer Mueller’s.
