Giuliani Admits ‘Spygate’ Is A Stunt Meant To Discredit Mueller Probe

7 Reasons Why Trump’s “Witch Hunt!” Claims About The Mueller Investigation Are Bunk

He said that Trump's counsel is not going to sit the president down with Mueller until they can prove this whole investigation is not a "trap for perjury". "Of course, we have to do it in defending the president", he said.

President Trump is advancing the Spygate narrative of a surveillance and spying mission against his campaign that was politically motivated to keep the ruling party in the White House. "Then he goes right back to, 'Why shouldn't I?'"

The former NY mayor is seeking a readout of the classified information Justice Department officials shared with lawmakers on Thursday about the origins of the FBI investigation into Russian meddling.

President Trump argued Sunday that the federal Russian Federation collusion investigation has ruined the lives of the young people who came to Washington to work in his administration.

"We are more convinced as we see it that this is a rigged investigation".

Justice Department officials didn't immediately return a message seeking comment on whether the president had requested a briefing similar to what was provided to members of Congress last week. He also tried to repeat Trump's lie that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has admitted the Federal Bureau of Investigation placed a spy in the Trump campaign - which Bash corrected him on.

As Giuliani acknowledged the political nature of his public campaign against Mueller, Trump advanced that campaign on Twitter, lamenting what he said were "young and handsome lives ... devastated and destroyed" by the investigation of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"It is for public opinion", Giuliani said of his public campaign.

"You've got 13 Democrats, you've got a focus on things that didn't happen, no Russian Federation collusion, no obstruction, just defending yourself, and now we are into the basis of it being illegitimate", Giuliani said.

Flake said there's concern that Trump is laying the groundwork to fire Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and if that were to happen, "obviously, that would cause a constitutional crisis". Earlier in the interview, he said that he and the other members of Trump's legal team (who don't appear on television every day) have concluded that the investigation is "rigged".

The timing of any such interview was being heavily influenced by the possible Trump summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, he said.

We could spend an entire segment dissecting what he said.

"I know 50 years of investigatory experience tells me they don't have a darn thing because they would've used it already and they wouldn't be off on collusion, they wouldn't be off on Manafort, they wouldn't be off on Cohen".

Top law enforcement and intelligence community officials held back-to-back briefings with lawmakers on Thursday after House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, Republican of California, threatened to hold officials in contempt if documents related to Halper were not turned over to Congress.

And he suggested that the criticism is part of an effort to discredit the investigation in the eyes of the American people.
