President Donald Trump‘s personal lawyer and frequent media guest Rudy Giuliani appeared on Sean Hannity‘s show Thursday night to talk about the Department of Justice’s newly released Inspector General report.
He was also asked about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the Russian probe.
“Rod Rosenstein, we now know in meetings, has threatened to subpoena emails, intimidate, harassing congressman and their staffs who have been tasked constitutionally with the duty of oversight. You know about these threats he is the guy that signed the last FISA warrant knowing that the bulk of information phony Clinton paid for dossier and he is the guy who recommended firing Comey. Is he conflicted…Intimidating and threatening to use the power of the Justice Department against congressman and their staffs, what do you call that? To me it sounds like obstruction,” Hannity opined, cuing Giuliani to bash Rosenstein and Mueller.
Giuliani obliged, noting that in the wake of the report which in his view proves political bias, the DOJ has an opportunity to redeem themselves.
“Yeah. It’s a lot clearer obstruction than firing Comey on his recommendation, which is not obstruction. It’s within the president’s Article II powers. So I believe that Rod Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions have a chance to redeem themselves.”
He then added: “That chance comes about tomorrow. It doesn’t go beyond tomorrow. Tomorrow, Mueller should be suspended and honest people should be brought in, impartial people to investigate these people like [Peter] Strzok. Strzok should be in jail by the end of next week.”
Giuliani offered no further support or evidence to back up his demands.
