An exchange between former NYC mayor and current Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and CNN’s Chris Cuomo got fiery fast as the host repeatedly fact-checked the attorney on his false claims.
The majority of the pair’s disagreements centered on claims Giuliani made about the FBI, which he at one point claimed was “so damned biased” against Donald Trump that it preemptively established protocols that required agents’ work phones to be wiped after they cease using them.
The former New York City mayor went on to insist that agent Peter Strzok and Justice Department lawyer Lisa Page — two figures who previously dated and are at the center of right-wing “Deep State” conspiracy theories due to their disdain for Trump as evidenced via text messages — testified earlier in the day.
Cuomo noted that neither Strzok nor Page testified on Wednesday — and the attorney began sputtering as he continued to claim they had.

Obama lays bare Trump’s TV ratings fixation: ‘He’s jealous of COVID’s media coverage’
Former President Barack Obama on Tuesday asserted that President Donald Trump is "jealous" of the media coverage that has been given to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"This week, do you know what he brought up?" Obama asked a group of Joe Biden's supporters in Orlando, Florida. "The crowd size at the inauguration again. Saying his was bigger. Who is thinking about that right now? Nobody except him."
Obama noted that over 225,000 Americans are dead due to COVID-19.
"And what's his closing argument?" the former president continued. "That people are too focused on COVID. He said this at one of his rallies. 'COVID, COVID, COVID,' he's complaining. He's jealous of COVID's media coverage."
