Rudy Giuliani Casually Drops Bombshell: Trump Fired Comey Over Russia Probe

During an interview with Sean Hannity Wednesday night, Trump lawyer and friend Rudy Giuliani insisted that there was a “solid” explanation for why President Donald Trump decided to fire Comey.

“He fired at Comey because Comey would not — among other things — say that he wasn’t a target of the investigation. He’s entitled to that. Hillary Clinton got that and he couldn’t get that. So, he fired him and he said I’m free of this guy.”

He continued on: “He went on Lester Holt, Lester Holt’s interview was as good as anybody could do, better than I think any of the people around Mueller could have done. Lester Holt asked them why did you do it? He said I did it because I felt I had to the explain to the American people that the president was not the target of the investigation.”

The former New York mayor then concluded: “I want to make sure they don’t misrepresent his answers but this is an outrageous miscarriage of justice.”
