Rudy Giuliani has had it with the Mueller investigation. He suggests that the recent revelation that there was a spy planted in the Trump campaign de-legitimizes the entire investigation. He makes a compelling point.
The Washington Times reports:
Rudy Giuliani: Mueller’s Russia investigation is ‘rigged,’ no longer legitimate
Former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, the public face of President Trump’s legal team, said Sunday that Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian ties to the president’s 2016 campaign is “rigged” and that he no longer sees it as legitimate.
“Not any more, I don’t,” Mr. Giuliani said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I did when I came in.”
He cited recent accusations that the FBI may have planted a secret informant in Mr. Trump’s campaign, as well as recent comments from Judge T.S. Ellis III expressing skepticism about what the financial dealings of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has to do with coordination with the Kremlin.
He also said that while Mr. Trump does still want an interview with Mr. Mueller, such an event is increasingly looking like a mere perjury trap.
“He is adamant in wanting to do it, but we’re more convinced as we see it that this is a rigged investigation,” Mr. Giuliani said.
Trump was very wise to bring Rudy onto his legal team.
