Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein dropped 12 news indictments against Russian military officials for meddling in the U.S. 2016 presidential election on Friday.
In response, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, released a “narcissistic” statement, according to CNN’s Gloria Borger.
Giuliani said on Twitter: “The indictments Rod Rosenstein announced are good news for all Americans. The Russians are nailed. No Americans are involved. Time for Mueller to end this pursuit of the President and say President Trump is completely innocent.”
During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Borger was disgusted at Giuliani’s response.
“Where is the outrage?” Tapper asked.
“First of all, there isn’t any outrage. If there’s such a thing as a narcissistic official White House statement, this is it,” she said. “This is about Donald Trump, saying, see, we didn’t do anything wrong. I didn’t do anything wrong.”
She continued: “Where, is the president of the United States says, you know, we have to find a way to make sure that this does not occur again? This is a cyber war, and we have to defend ourselves. Instead, we got this self-serving statement from the president of the United States.”
