Giuliani says informant info key to giving Mueller interview

"President Donald Trump has taken to bashing the ongoing Russian Federation investigation in a whole new way-bemoaning the effect the probe has had on the 'young and lovely lives. with stars in their eyes'".

But conservatives say Comey acted to protect Clinton because two months before she was interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, he wrote a report recommending she not be prosecuted. "Because that would be playing into the hands, of you know, victim, Watergate", he told Fox News Sunday, as noted by the Hill.

"They're the people who have committed the crimes", he said.

'When you look at the backdrop of this rigged investigation, when you look at how they treated [former campaign chair Paul] Manafort, how they spun off into [Trump lawyer Michael] Cohen.

The two meetings with select lawmakers, held last Thursday, were requested by Trump's GOP allies in Congress and arranged by the White House.

Giuliani has taken the role of attack dog since joining Donald Trump's legal team, going on a series of television appearances in an attempt to discredit the investigation.

The former NY mayor is seeking a readout of the classified information Justice Department officials shared with lawmakers on Thursday about the origins of the FBI investigation into Russian meddling. He said that Trump's counsel is not going to sit the president down with Mueller until they can prove this whole investigation is not a "trap for perjury".

Then Bash specifically cited the "Spygate" claims and how no evidence had been offered to support them, and noted to Giuliani that he was both an experienced politician and a lawyer who clearly understood that the Trump team could feel free to attack the Russian Federation investigation, since Mueller and his team would not be able to publicly defend themselves.

"The only thing that makes this possible is a Congress that is complicit, " Representative Adam Schiff, Democrat of California, said on ABC's "This Week, " naming several conservative leaders in the Republican Party and accusing "a weak" Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin of refusing to "stand up for the independence of the Justice Department".

"The whole objective of this meeting had nothing to do with congressional oversight, " Schiff said.

He also suggested the Justice Department's indictment of 13 Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 presidential election was "phony" and was only meant to impress the media.

He also pointed to Giuliani's push for a separate Justice Department briefing about the confidential informant. Giuliani's remarks Sunday were part of a frequently contradictory discussion about the informant.

But not all Republicans are convinced that Nunes, Meadows and other GOP lawmakers are on a legitimate quest.

So our jury - as it should be - is the American people, ' Giuliani continued.
