President Donald Trump’s lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Sunday trashed the indictments from special counsel Robert Mueller as “questionable” and “phony.”
In remarks to CNN’s “State of the Union,” Giuliani said he no longer thinks Mueller’s Russia investigation is “legitimate” anymore.
“I did when I came in,” he said. “Now I see Spygate.”
Pressed about the investigative team bringing charges against 22 people and entities, including 13 Russians, Giuliani dismissed the charges “that you point out are questionable. “
“The Russians — it’s a pretty phony indictment,” he added. “They are not showing up for anything. You think they are coming in to be tried? That is like a paper indictment.”
Giuliani also laid into Trump critics former CIA head John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper as “two clowns.”
“Clapper is talking about spying, which he doesn’t realize — spying on the Trump campaign,” he said. “Brennan was chief torturer in charge and then disowned it. I don’t know what he did with the CIA. He is the most political CIA director I have ever met.”
He also declared Democrats are providing Trump and his allies with the “material” to undermine the Mueller probe — and warned it’ll backfire in the midterm elections.
“We have to do it in defending the president,” he said. “We are defending to a large extent… for public opinion because eventually the decision here will be impeach or not impeach. Members of Congress, Democrat and Republican, will be informed a lot by their constituents. The jury is the American people.
“Democrats I suggest from their own self-interest this is not a good issue to go into the congressional election.”
