Rudy Giuliani engaged in a fiery back-and-forth with Piers Morgan during a television interview this week.
On Thursday, the politician, 76, appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss the current state of affairs in the United States, defending President Donald Trump‘s controversial and much-maligned response to the ongoing protests.
Amid the demonstrations in Minneapolis and around the country over the killing of George Floyd, Trump, 73, wrote on Twitter last Friday that the more violent protesters were “thugs” who were “dishonoring the memory of George Floyd.” He added — to the alarm of many — “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
Giuliani stood by Trump’s message, claiming that he meant that violence begets violence. He said media bias is what has led to criticism of Trump, which host Morgan, 55, fired back at.
“Oh, stop banging on about left-wing journalism, Rudy,” said Morgan. “… I’ve written more fairly about Donald Trump than anybody.”
In a Sunday interview on New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable,” Rudy Giuliani, personal legal counsel for President Donald Trump, weighed in on the Department of Justice’s decision to drop charges against former National Security Adviser Ret. Gen. Michael Flynn after new evidence came to light showing FBI agents attempted to entrap Flynn into lying to them.
Giuliani said former CIA Director John Brennan, along with former FBI Director James Comey, orchestrated the Deep State’s attempt to take down Trump, which he described as “as close to treason as you can get.”
“This is now an inexperienced prosecutor’s hypothesis … I think Brennan ran this damn thing,” Giuliani told host John Catsimatidis. “I particularly think Brennan ran the Papadopoulos-Carter Page part of it because that’s a very elaborate counter-intelligence plan — kind of a stupid one. Brennan is smart, but if he goes overboard, he makes a lot of mistakes, which is why he was in trouble all his career. So, that one I’m sure is orchestrated by CIA. And who the hell would’ve done it in the CIA but a screwball like Brennan?”
He added, “I think they have Comey. And I think, despite the fact that he got let off a couple of times — and I have no inside information — I believe that Attorney General Barr was saving it for the really good case, the one that comes pretty close to treason, because what they did after [Trump] was elected, I don’t say that it’s treason, but it’s as close to treason as you can get. They wanted to take out the lawfully elected President of the United States, and they wanted to do it by lying, submitting false affidavits, using phony witnesses — in other words, they wanted to do it by illegal means. What is overthrowing a government by illegal means? A coup … and it’s also treason.”
Is this why CNN’s Chris Cuomo said “who cares” about who was “better friends” with Jeffrey Epstein and begged his viewers not to “get caught up in the intrigue” of it all?
From The Daily Mail:
Jeffrey Epstein hobnobbed with high-profile guests from the worlds of politics, banking, Hollywood and philanthropy at a Hamptons party just two months after his release by the state of Florida for soliciting a minor.
Photos from a 2010 dinner party at the home of David and Julia Kochobtained by DailyMail.com show Epstein as he chats with guests after a screening of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani is seeking to put pressure on special counsel Robert Mueller to submit his report on whether the investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia has found collusion, saying Mueller should “put up or shut up.”
In an interview with New York radio host John Catsimatidis airing Sunday, Giuliani claimed that Mueller’s team has known since “May or June” that there is no evidence to support the allegation that members of Trump’s campaign knowingly worked with Russians during the 2016 election.
