On Sunday Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s attorney, said, that that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia collusion is “rigged” and that investigators are focusing “on things that didn’t happen.”
In the past few weeks Giuliani was hired to try to bring the investigation to a close and perhaps arrange an interview between Trump and Mueller.
Trump has become frustrated about the Russian probe. He calls it “witch hunt”.
The probe is now in its second year.
In fear federal investigators might try to set a legal trap, Giuliani and others on Trump’s legal team have been cautious about allowing Trump to talk.
Giuliani said on Sunday, “We’re not going to sit him down if it’s a trap for perjury. He wants to explain that he did nothing wrong.”
Trump has consistently said he didn’t meddle with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. He has argued that the investigation has moved beyond its original intent to include the business dealings of the president’s business associates.
Giuliani said, “This is rigged, you’ve got 13 Democrats, no collusion. They are focused on things that didn’t happen.”
He also said the president is “not going to fire anybody” because that would make him look like a victim.
Giuliani also added that the former administration should have informed Trump that it was looking at Russia meddling during the 2016 race and was surveilling his campaign.
Giuliani said, “Some of it is Mueller’s fault (but) it completely taints his investigation. The whole thing with this investigation that was going on, which we consider spying, was done before Mueller got involved. But it completely taints his investigation.”
I think that Giuliani is a smart man. Our president should not sit down with Mueller. The probe should just end. The insanity has to stop.
We need to focus on the real criminals.
