In an interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday, President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the public did not know even half the story as it pertained to FBI misconduct during the 2016 election – misconduct that may even be ongoing in the Office of the Special Counsel.
“The reality is, the real story is not that this case isn’t going to fizzle,” he said. “It’s going to blow up on them. The real question is what we talked about before: There’s a lot more to what they did that nobody knows about yet. A lot more to the obstruction of justice, to the collusion, to the fake dossier.”
Giuliani said that there was only one form of collusion in the case, and that was the intelligence community working with a British spy who was in turn getting bad information from the Russians.
“Can it get any worse?” he asked. “I mean, what do we need to know that this is a totally illegitimate investigation based on a report, a dossier that was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat – probably the biggest illegality so far, the biggest collusion so far. Completely made up. Led to nothing except several fraudulent FISA warrants.”
Hannity said he had his supicions about the Mueller team and their involvement in the conspiracy, a point that Giuliani agreed with.
“I believe that when this plays out over the next year or two, it’s not going to be about President Trump,” said the former New York mayor. “It’s going to get over with. It’s going to be about all the things they did. You know how sometimes the cover-up is worse than the crime? In this case, the investigation was much worse than the no-crime.”
The shame is that it’s still ongoing. And even though Mueller’s investigation, vis a vis the president, is never going to result in anything more substantial than a report to Congress, it is doing active, long-term damage to our country and to the institution of the presidency. In the short-term, it is weakening Trump’s ability to govern, stifling his agenda, and distracting him from the essential business of running the country. The fact is that the American people voted this man into office to do great things, not worry about some ridiculous witch hunt spurred by Democrats and the partisan Deep State.
For that reason and more, we sincerely hope that Giuliani is right when he hints at more stuff to come. These people truly deserve to go down in flames for what they’ve tried to do to this president. We just pray they don’t take the country down with them.
