Rudy Giuliani warns Mueller doesn’t seem to realize ‘they’re interfering with things that are much bigger than them’

Published

In a Wednesday interview with Fox News host Laura Ingram, President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t seem to know who he’s dealing with.

The former New York mayor first explained that the investigation into Trump should be ended immediately because it “is not good for the American people,” though he didn’t explain why. He said that he’s working to try and end the investigation.

“The special counsel’s office doesn’t seem to have that understanding they’re interfering with things that are much bigger than them, or us,” he continued. Though, again, he didn’t explain what those “much bigger” things are.

He then revealed that he’s only met with the Mueller team once and has sent them five letters, to which they’ve had no response.

Throughout the interview, Giuliani made several comparisons to Trump and former President Bill Clinton’s arguments against testifying or being subpoenaed. He also said that he sent Mueller a letter demanding the “Hillary Clinton treatment,” which he said would have given the legal team the full report two weeks in advance of the announcement.

That treatment might not be ideal for the Trump team as Clinton was under investigation from Republicans for over four years and brought in for questioning from the FBI as well as 11 hours of testifying before Congress.

Trump took out DNI head Dan Coats to install an new acting director in charge of whistleblowers: CIA veteran

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," a longtime veteran CIA official said the whistleblower, who ran to the inspector general with a complaint about Donald Trump asking Ukraine's president for dirt on Joe Biden, should expect the president and his aides to come after them.

Speaking with host Joy Reid, Jonna Mendez said she saw the first warnings signs that something was up in the U.S. intelligence community when the president forced DNI head Dan Coats and his top deputy out.

"Through the lens of someone who spent 27 years at the CIA, the thing that caught my eye instantly was Dan Coats' resignation follow by Sue Gordon," Mendez explained. "The fact that Dan Coats went into a meeting and said 'Sue, you've got to resign' and that she did, truncating a career that clearly hadn't reached its zenith."

GOP’s cancellation of presidential primaries could blow up in Trump’s face — here’s why

Published

on

In recent weeks, Republican state party committees have been moving to cancel presidential primaries to prevent Never-Trump conservatives, like former Reps. Joe Walsh (R-IL) and Mark Sanford (R-SC) and former Gov. Bill Weld (R-MA), from challenging the president from the right. So far, Republicans in Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, and South Carolina have all announced they will scrap the voting process for 2020.

Mike Pence should be investigated for his part in Ukraine negotiations and ‘we need some answers’: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

On MSNBC's "AM Joy" Saturday, former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance agreed with host Joy Reid that Vice President Mike Pence could be involved in the Ukraine whistleblower cover-up — and that Congress needs to act to learn the truth for the American people.

"Let me go to you on this very quickly, Joyce, because here's the question for Mike Pence," said Reid. "Mike Pence has been sort of severed from all of the other questions that are relating to potential impeachment for Donald Trump, that the House is wrestling with right now, but if Pence ... went in knowing why the aid was being held up, went in and spoke to the leader of Ukraine knowing what stick the administration had over them, and in that way was drawn in to this idea of using that stick to try to get what they wanted from Ukraine, does he then face the jeopardy of perhaps also being drawn into the questions of impeachment?"
