While appearing on Sunday’s edition of CNN’s “State of the Union,” Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani called for an investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 election.
“We want the Mueller probe to be investigated the way the Trump administration has been investigated,” he said.
“This is a case where it’s crying out for someone to investigate the investigators,” he later said during an interview on CBS.
According to the AFP:
Giuliani’s comments were the latest in a barrage of attacks on the probe by the president and his lawyers as Mueller appears to be nearing a conclusion to his investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Moscow.
“WITCH HUNT! There was no Russian Collusion. Oh, I see, there was no Russian Collusion, so now they look for obstruction on the no Russian Collusion. The phony Russian Collusion was a made up Hoax,” Trump tweeted on Sunday.
“Too bad they didn’t look at Crooked Hillary like this. Double Standard!” he added, referring to his 2016 Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton.
The Washington Post reported Sunday that Mueller is pressing to wrap up his findings by the end of summer and, in the words of former Republican leader Newt Gingrich, Trump and his allies were “prepared for war.”
“We want to see if we can have the investigation and special counsel declared illegal and unauthorized,” he told the Post on Friday.
“I believe that the Mueller investigation should be investigated not because necessarily of Mueller but because of its genesis in this very, very now completely almost illegal and unethical probe, this Russian probe,” Giuliani told Tapper on Sunday. “I’m saying what led up to the special counsel. I don’t think Mueller and his people need to be investigated, unless something comes out of that.”
