Special counsel Robert Mueller has nothing on President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, maintained Monday morning.
“I’ve been through everything; I’ve talked to the president,” Giuliani told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.” “The president’s an honest man. He did nothing wrong…throughout this, he’s said ‘give them the documents.'”
Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, said that he knows some lawyers were concerned when the president’s past attorney, Michael Cohen, said he had tapes of conversations with the president.
However, Giuliani said the Cohen tapes vindicate Trump, rather than prove any wrongdoing.
Giuliani called on Mueller to wrap up his investigation into Russian activities during the 2016 election by Sept. 1, claiming that if it drags on past then, it could influence the 2018 midterm elections in November.
Also on Monday, Giuliani condemned former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman after she released a secretly taped phone call with the president that added to security concerns that were raised by her recording of chief of staff John Kelly in the Situation Room.
“Donald Trump made her,” Giuliani said. “What kind of ingratitude is this?”
Her recording was released Monday on NBC’s “Today”, and was of a conversation between Manigault-Newman and Trump after Kelly fired her in December.
