Appearing on a New York’s AM 970 on Sunday morning, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani went off on special counsel Robert Mueller for his treatment of former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Speaking with host John Catsimatidis, Giuliani launched into a diatribe while defending President Donald Trump.
“I think the special prosecutor has stepped over the line, now, with the way he’s intimidating people in order to tell what he believes is his version of the truth,” exclaimed the former federal prosecutor who is now advising the embattled Trump.
Complaining that Manafort has been held in solitary confinement, Giuliani accused Mueller’s investigators of bullying the ex-campaign manager.
“They want him to give certain forms of evidence that would implicate the president in things that Mr. Manafort says are untrue,” he lectured. “And at some point, after you do this four, five, six times, you’ve got to accept the fact that, well, Mr. Manafort maybe doesn’t have the recollection they’d like, and they are pressuring him and creating the real risk that the man might commit perjury.”
“An ethical prosecutor would stop this, and pursue some other line of inquiry with other people,” whined Giuliani.
Speaking in defense of Manafort, the radio host Catsimatidi fed Giuliani a softball, asking: “Is Manafort an American citizen?”
“Of course he’s an American citizen,” snapped Giuliani. “But they are treating him like he’s a terrorist.”
Giuliani then said Mueller’s investigation, “needs to come to an end” after stating the special counsel “should “put up or shut up” and cease “oppressive tactics that are un-American.”

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior White House adviser told Fox News on Monday the administration's policies could help Black Americans who wanted success, and Scarborough and his "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski were appalled.
"Wow," Brzezinski said. "So the White House responded in a statement that read in part, quote, 'It is disgusting to see internet trolls taking senior adviser Jared Kushner --"
‘He doesn’t care’: Kentucky residents bury McConnell for jamming through Barrett while millions suffer
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Monday night crowed about jamming through Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court -- and then promptly adjourned the Senate until after the election.
The decision to adjourn was particularly striking because it meant that no economic relief would pass the Senate before election day during a time when millions of people are unemployed and under the threat of being evicted from their homes.
