The President’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, made a bold claim on a Wednesday night segment of “Hannity,” saying that he believed the Russia probe would ultimately blow up in the faces of the Democrats who were encouraging it. “Mueller is going to have a lot to answer for,” he said.
“The reality is, the real story here is not that this case is going to fizzle, it’s going to blow up on them. The real question is what we talked about before, there’s a lot more to what they did that nobody knows about yet,” Trump’s lawyer continued. “A lot more to the obstruction of justice, to the collusion, to the fake dossier. Trying to bring Steele back in after he was completely discredited.”
Giuliani said in an interview that it was time for Mueller to “put up or shut up” last week. (RELATED: Guiliani To Mueller: ‘Put Up Or Shut Up’)
“Mueller is going to have a lot to answer for. I said a long time ago the investigation here has to be of the investigators because we can’t let this happen again in American history,” he concluded. “We may not have a president as strong as President Trump. A lesser president could have been cracked by this.”
These comments from the president’s lawyer come as many look at the upcoming midterm elections and wonder how the investigation could impact the results.
