Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani tells Robert Mueller to quit ‘whining’

Rudy Giuliani appears on NBC's "Meet the Press" (screen grab)

President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani spoke to CNN Tuesday in wake of the news that special counsel Robert Mueller was angry about Attorney General Bill Barr’s misleading summary.

According to Giuliani, Mueller had the chance to prosecute Trump and clearly decided not to. As a result, he should stop complaining.

“Mueller should have made a decision,” Giuliani told CNN’s Pamela Brown via phone. “And shouldn’t be complaining or whining now that he didn’t get described correctly.”

Giuliani thinks Mueller shouldn’t have written the public letter to the attorney general expressing his displeasure.

The same sentiment was echoed by Trump attorney John Dowd, who called Mueller and his team “a bunch of babies.”

Mueller, who has spent decades working for the Department of Justice and FBI, said in his 400-page report that he did not make a decision on Trump’s obstruction of justice because of the Office of Legal Counsel’s 1973 memo saying it is not under his purview to do so. Mueller believed due to that rule, making a decision on obstruction was the role of the attorney general. Since the attorney general has already made a public declaration that a president can’t be indicted, Mueller laid out the case for Congress to impeach Trump for obstructing justice.

If the Trump administration and the attorney general believes that Mueller should have made a decision, it’s unclear if he still could come back and do exactly that.

‘The election wasn’t stolen — he blew it’: Michigan Republican says Trump ‘did everything possible to lose’

Published

President Donald Trump insists the election was stolen from him in Michigan, but Republicans there haven't been willing to indulge his fantasy.

The president has zeroed in on the state, which he narrowly won in 2016, in his effort to overturn his election loss to Joe Biden by claiming widespread fraud and pressuring legislators to overrule the will of the voters, but few Republicans are buying in, reported Politico.

“We must not attempt to exercise power we simply don’t have,” said Aaron Van Langevelde, who sits on Michigan’s board of state canvassers, which was statutorily obligated to certify the election win by Joe Biden. “As John Adams once said, 'We are a government of laws, not men.' This board needs to adhere to that principle here today. This board must do its part to uphold the rule of law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election.”

Trump’s efforts to overturn the election are clumsy and petulant – but it’s still treason: historian

Published

on

We are now witnesses to the most dangerous act of selfishness from the King of the Self. Trump knows the evidence for any form of election fraud is silly fantasy. His electoral deficits are beyond challenge--74 Electoral College votes and more than 5 million popular votes. Yet he repeats his denunciations of American elections, the bedrock of any democracy, that began when he was only a candidate. In October 2016, he called the election “one big, ugly lie”.

His disastrous character flaws are obvious to everyone. We, and here I mean all those who care about the real world around us, must now go beyond psychological analysis to political clarity. Trump is a traitor.
