Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani says he and the rest of the president’s legal team want a briefing on the classified information shared with lawmakers about an FBI investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, the Associated Press reports.
Giuliani told the AP that he wants “a readout” of the meeting.
“If the spying was inappropriate, that means we may have an entirely illegitimate investigation,” Giuliani said of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. “Coupled with Comey’s illegally leaked memos, this means the whole thing was a mistake and should never have happened. We’d urge the Justice Department to re-evaluate, to acknowledge they made a mistake. It’s a waste of $20 million of the taxpayers’ money. The whole thing is already a waste of money.”
