In an interview on Sunday, Fox News host Chris Wallace grilled Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani over revelations in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report about President Donald Trump and his family.
Giuliani began the interview by complaining about Wallace’s first question.
“What you’re doing is you’re taking the Mueller’s report, which is a prosecutor’s version of what happened, you’re giving it full credit and you’re not giving me a chance to explain the other side!” the president’s lawyer charged.
“I’m asking you about the other side,” Wallace pointed out.
“It’s pages of calumny, lies and distortions,” Giuliani said.
“You think that’s what the report is?” Wallace clarified.
After giving Giuliani a moment to explain Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comney — which led to the special counsel’s investigation — Wallace tried to move on.
“You’ve got to give me the opportunity to ask you a question,” the Fox News host said as Giuliani continued talking over him. “I’m here to ask you some questions [about the report].”
“One of your arguments is that obtruction of justice could not have happened because there is no underlying crime,” Wallace continued. “The special counsel said what you just said is not true.”
“When did Mueller become God?” Giuliani exclaimed. “We’re talking about something that didn’t happen. There was no obstruction. Nothing was denied [Mueller], nobody crushed cell phones like Hillary [Clinton] did. Nobody deleted 33,000 emails like Hillary’s people did. And nobody bleached a server like Hillary did.”
Wallace noted that Trump provided insufficient answers to Mueller in a written interview, saying he did “not recall” 37 times.
“Oh my goodness!” Giuliani shouted sarcastically.
The Fox News host went on to remind Giuliani that Trump accused Clinton of a crime when she said that she told Republicans she couldn’t remember details during congressional testimony.
“Hillary Clinton was guilty of the underlying crime,” Giuliani insisted. “She did crush the cell phones.”
“Who made you God as you said about Mueller?” Wallace shouted back. “You’re saying, who made Mueller God, and now you’re saying whether she was guilty or not.”
“I’m not saying she’s guilty,” Giuliani said, contradicting himself.

First test of Virgin Orbit rocket fails to accomplish goal
The first test launch of a rocket that is released from a jumbo jet at 35,000 feet and then propels itself into orbit to deploy a satellite failed on Monday, the Virgin Orbit company said.
"The mission terminated shortly into the flight. Cosmic Girl and our flight crew are safe and returning to base," Virgin Orbit's Twitter account reported as the test was underway off the coast of California.
The plane released the rocket cleanly, but the latter developed trouble of unknown origin after igniting its first-stage engine, the company said.
Founded by British billionaire Richard Branson in 2012, Virgin Orbit wants to offer a quick and flexible launch service for operators of small satellites, weighing between 300 and 500 kilos (600 to 1,00 pounds), a market which is currently booming.

Trump uses Memorial Day to attack Biden and recycle old lies about his coronavirus response
NYT: "At Least 430,000 People Have Arrived in the United States on Direct Flights From China"
President Donald Trump used the occasion of the Memorial Day holiday to recycle old, debunked lies about his likely Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.
In a tweet Trump made several accusations, none of them are true.
Sleepy Joe Biden (mostly his reps.) went crazy when I banned, in late January, people coming in from China. He called me “xenophobic” & then went equally “nuts” when we let in 44,000 people - until he was told they were American citizens coming home. He later apologized!
