Rudy Giuliani brags about ties at the FBI — and Don Lemon just pointed the finger at him
CNN’s Don Lemon suspects that Donald Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani may have had inside information on FBI Director Comey’s announcement that he would be reexamining the Clinton emails.
“I saw something, and when I saw it, it caught my attention,” Lemon said in an interview with filmmaker Michael Moore. “I didn’t think anything of it until two days later and this was two days before the Comey announcement. This was Rudy Giuliani, watch this,” he said before rolling a clip of Giuliani on Fox News.
“I think he’s got a surprise or two you’re going to hear about in the next two days,” Giuliani said. “I’m talking about some pretty big surprises.”
“I heard you say that this morning. What do you mean?” the Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt asked.
“You’ll see,” Giuliani replied. “We’re not going to go down and we’re certainly not going to stop fighting. We’ve got a couple things up our sleeve that should turn this thing around.”
Lemon noted that two days later the Comey letter dropped to Congress. “Do you think he could have known about it?”
Moore seemed shocked. “It sure sounds like he knew something. This man is a former federal prosecutor, worked for the Justice Department, that if somebody slipped him some information there, I mean, that is amazing.”
Moore went on to call for an investigation into both Comey as well as what Giuliani knew and how he knew it. “I think somebody should be raising questions about him and why this happened why he did it on Friday night, and it’s got everybody in the sort of tornado about the e-mails.” He went on to call the video Lemon played a big news item. “Has anybody run it on CNN?” Lemon didn’t know.
“Whoever is watching it right now, you just introduced something that needs to be investigated,” Moore said. “Somebody has to answer for what we just saw, that you just showed us, the American people, because that was frightening. Rudy Giuliani, in being so self-assured he knew something would happen.”
The New York Times is asking a similar question. In a Thursday story, the Times noted that Giuliani has bragged “he has a pipeline into the Federal Bureau of Investigation and that agents tell him they are ‘outraged’ that they have not been able to bring Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, to Justice.”
It was also revealed that the FBI had the Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin emails for weeks prior to Comey making the announcement.
“Rudy was just having fun,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller told the Times. “To keep the other side on their toes.”
