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

Published

on

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.

BUSTED: Devin Nunes is hiding how he’s paying for all his frivolous lawsuits — which could land him in more trouble

Published

On Saturday, the Fresno Bee dived into a lingering question: How does Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pay for all the lawsuits he is filing against journalists, satirists, and political critics?

"Nunes, R-Tulare, has filed lawsuits against Twitter, anonymous social media users known as Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, a Republican political strategist, media companies, journalists, progressive watchdog groups, a political research firm that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and a retired farmer in Nunes’ own district," noted the Bee.

These lawsuits were mainly filed in Virginia — a state with very loose laws against so-called "SLAPP suits," or meritless lawsuits intended to drown people in legal expenses in retaliation for expressing political opinions. Nunes was assisted in these suits by Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney, and yet except for the suit against the retired farmer, there is no clear record in Nunes' FEC reports of how he paid for the suits.

Published

Speaking in Kentucky on Friday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blithely blew off concerns about coordinating with Donald Trump's White House on how to handle the president's defense in the expected impeachment trial.

One day after admitting on Fox News that he was working hand-in-hand with the White House on impeachment tactics, McConnell was very blunt about his motivations when asked about his admission.

In a clip shared by MSNBC, the Senate leader was pressed about his plans.

"You told Sean Hannity last night you were coordinating with the White House when it comes to impeachment. Why is that appropriate?" McConnell was asked.
