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.”

5.0 earthquake strikes Ridgecrest, California — two months after 7.1
Two months after the 7.1 earthquakes that hit outside of Los Angeles, another more modest quake was detected, ABC-7 reported.
While the location of the quake was about 20 miles north of Ridgecrest, California, at the Naval Air Warfare Center China Lake. People as far away as Clark County, Nevada also felt the rumble Thursday afternoon.
It left several people asking if it was considered a foreshock or a really late aftershock from two months ago.
92% of HPV-caused cancers could be prevented by vaccine: health authority
An estimated 92% of cancers caused by HPV could be prevented through vaccination, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday, adding that boosting immunization coverage was a key priority.
Human papillomavirus was responsible for an estimated yearly average of 34,800 cancer cases between 2012 and 2016, according to a new study published by the CDC, meaning that more than 32,100 cases could have been avoided annually.
The virus can lead to cancers in both men and women, including cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and oropharynx (the back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils).
New poll shows Republicans may get wiped out — in Mitch McConnell’s home state of Kentucky
This year, Republicans may be heading for a rough election in an unlikely state: Kentucky.
New internal Democratic polls reveal that the GOP is struggling in three critical Kentucky races taking place in November. In the gubernatorial race, incumbent GOP Gov. Matt Bevin is trailing Democratic Attorney General Steve Beshear 48 to 39.
Further down the ballot, the GOP is also vulnerable. In the attorney general race to replace Beshear, former Democratic state House Speaker Greg Stumbo is ahead 46 to 39 against Republican Daniel Cameron, the former legal counsel to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. And in the secretary of state race, where incumbent Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes is retiring, Democratic former Second Lady of Kentucky and Miss America 2000 pageant winner Heather French Henry leads GOP former Justice Department lawyer Michael Adams 52 to 37.
