Giuliani: time to investigate the Müller – investigator
On the heels of the IG report, the power of attorney for President Trump on ‘Fox & Friends’ says it’s time to stop, the Russia investigation.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on Sunday called for a comprehensive investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the current Russia-probe, in the Wake of the Thursday bombshell report the DOJ watchdog outline pervasive bias at the DOJ and FBI.
Giuliani also said trump reserves the right to pardon someone is treated “unfairly” in the Russia-probe influence — a possible reference to one-off Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was ordered to jail last week, allegedly to potential witnesses in his criminal case.
“It screams someone investigate the investigators,” Giuliani told CBS’ “Face the Nation”.
“It is a full and complete IG [Inspector General] report and grand jury investigation of what happened here-after, it was the Russia sample,” he added. “What was the purpose of it? What did you do together?”
Giuliani’s comments echoed what he said on “Fox and Friends” last week when he come on Müller-Russia probe to an end. The former mayor of New York, marked specifically “unethical” and “disturbing” anti-Trump behavior of key figures in both the Hillary Clinton email probe, and the Russia-investigation.
Justice Department inspector General Michael Horowitz last week unearthed new text messages between the former FBI lawyer, Lisa page, and FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok, including one in the Strzok said: “we will stop,” President Trump choice.
“It screams someone investigate the investigators.”

SEVEN KEY TAKEWAYS FROM THE LONG-AWAITED IG REPORT ON FBI, DOJ BEHAVIOR
Strzok, who was later removed by the Russian probe, after his politically motivated texts to the public, remains employed at the FBI.
“How much he has to infect to that of the probe, with its own, very, very extreme positions?” Giuliani asked Sunday. “I don’t know, but I would like to find out before I go forward.”
In an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business Network’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, serves on both the House Judiciary Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee, said that there is a possibility of current and former DOJ and FBI officials could be prosecuted.
The former trump-campaign-manager Paul Manafort to jail was sent, for alleged witness tampering, while out on bail — fueling speculation that Trump may pardon him.
“I think there is certainly a chance,” there are criminal charges, Ratcliffe said. “You are Andrew McCabe accused have already potentially false testimony. Jim Comey is certainly not out of the woods with respect to the testimony he gave or actions he has taken regarding the handling of classified information and then there is Peter Strzok.
“I mean continue as it is, not seriously considered for the obstruction of justice charges on the basis of the text-messages and E-Mails we’ve seen, really not out of context, or read in a different way,” Ratcliffe. To stop “if you say you Donald Trump always President, there is nothing clearer than that.”
On CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Giuliani said that Trump has no plans to issue pardons now in the Russia investigation, but could choose to do this, as soon as the special counsel of the work is done.
For now, Giuliani said, pardons are necessary and could cloud what he believes is a “very clear picture of an extremely unfair investigation with no crime involved in every art.”
Giuliani says Trump retains to forgive his right, and so could do, after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report is complete, if the people were treated “unfairly.”
His comments come after former trump has sent campaign Chairman Paul Manafort to prison last week after a Federal judge to house arrest, deprived him over allegations of witness tampering in the Russian investigation.
