Giuliani Admits: ‘I Was Always Afraid’ Mueller Probe Would Uncover Someone Colluded Without Trump’s Knowledge
Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, lawyers for President Donald Trump, spoke at length on Sekulow’s show about the letter from Attorney General William Barr regarding the collusion probe on Monday.
At one point Giuliani noted the one fear he had about his client whom he otherwise knew to be innocent of collusion: that there was collusion.
“I think that you’re absolutely right, the key point here is, that, in no… it would not have been impossible, you know, for somebody on the campaign to have done something and the president wouldn’t know,” said Giuliani. “I was always afraid of that.”
“Because I ran a campaign, and I ran a city, and people did some things that were wrong,” he said. “I didn’t know about it. I didn’t want them to.”
Giuliani spoke about being pleased that the report went as far as to specify that they “did not find that any U.S. person or Trump campaign official or associate conspired or knowingly coordinated” with Russia, thus clearing up the fear of that potential problem.
“So I’m really glad they put that in there, because it removes any question about any kind of involvement with Russians, which is what he said to us from the very beginning,” Giuliani said. “The president’s frustration has been, as any innocent person would be: I didn’t do anything. I didn’t do anything wrong!”
The hour-long discussion had several interesting looks inside their case, and toward the end, a discussion about Mueller’s and Barr’s respective commentary on the issue of obstruction of justice. Watch it here from the Jay Sekulow Live Facebook page.
