Former US attorney on MSNBC slaps down Rudy Giuliani’s claim that Mueller is ‘running out of time’

Published

on

Former US attorney Greg Brower had nothing but scorn for Rudy Giuliani’s statement that “Mueller is running out of time.”

Brower agreed with MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson’s assertion that the comment seemed to be “more of a pr strategy than a legal strategy”, since “Robert Mueller can do what he wants”.

“This is Giuliani being Giuliani,” Brower said. He added that Giuliani was “trying to create spin and, frankly, trying to create leverage of the type that neither he nor the president really has.”

Brower went on to explain that despite Giuliani’s protests to the contrary, the investigation into Russia’s efforts to hack and disrupt the 2016 election, and whether they colluded with the Trump campaign, would “proceed on the special counsel’s time and in the way the special counsel thinks is appropriate.”

John Dean says Gordon Sondland just had his ‘John Dean moment’ by flipping on Trump: ‘The truth has come out’

Former White House aide John Dean on Wednesday compared his testimony against President Richard Nixon to the testimony of European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland.

"This has been called by some commentators a John Dean moment," CNN host Jake Tapper noted during a break in the testimony. "And there is no person I can think of who is better qualified to weigh in on that than John Dean."

"Is he the John Dean of this impeachment inquiry?" Tapper wondered.

"His statement certainly caught the Republicans off guard," Dean replied. "They didn't pick away -- just a few little picky points."

‘The worst day with the most damning evidence’: CNN’s Tapper explains how Sondland was very bad for Trump

European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland's testimony before the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry on Wednesday generated several startling revelations, including confirmation of an explicit quid-pro-quo deal involving investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden.

CNN's Jake Tapper described Sondland's testimony as "a monumental and historic moment on what may turn out to be the worst day with the most damning evidence for President Trump in the impeachment inquiry."

He then laid out all the ways that Sondland has been very bad news for the president.

"Sondland directly implicated the president in directing the operation to pressure Ukraine," Tapper explained. "Sondland is testifying that there very clearly was a quid pro quo -- this was for a White House visit for the Ukrainians in exchange for an announcement about an investigation into the company Burisma and the Bidens. Now, Sondland later said it became clear to him that the quid pro quo also, he presumed, was tied to the holdup of hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid that Ukraine desperately needed."

EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland, a key actor in President Donald Trump's effort to pressure Ukraine for dirt on his political rivals, was in the hot seat Wednesday as Democrats built their case for impeaching the US leader.

Here are some of the key quotes from his opening statement.

- Following Trump's orders -

- "As a presidential appointee, I followed the directions of the president. We worked with (Trump's personal lawyer Rudy) Giuliani because the president directed us to do so.

"We had no desire to set any conditions on the Ukranians. Indeed, my own personal view -- which I shared repeatedly with others -- was that the White House meeting and security assistance should have proceeded without pre-conditions of any kind."
