Rudy Giuliani admits 'Spygate' is Trump PR tactic against Robert Mueller

7 Reasons Why Trump’s “Witch Hunt!” Claims About The Mueller Investigation Are Bunk

7 Reasons Why Trump’s “Witch Hunt!” Claims About The Mueller Investigation Are Bunk

"I'm saying the basis on which he was appointed is illegitimate". Previously he said a decision wouldn't be made until after the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, scheduled for June 12 in Singapore. The president has given conflicting reasons behind his consequential decision; Trump said in Comey's resignation letter that the FBI director was "not able to effectively lead the Bureau" and that his decision was based on the recommendation of Rosenstein and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"I haven't seen any yet but maybe there is, and if it's there, we'll find it and we want to know about it", said Mr. Rubio, Florida Republican.

"The two investigations going on that I think will give us the answers to the questions that you raise", McConnell said.

Giuliani first denied that Spygate is a strategy meant to discredit Mueller's investigation, but then did agree with Bash's assertion that the tactic has "helped erode public confidence" in the investigation.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday", Giuliani blasted the Federal Bureau of Investigation for using an informant to talk to people on the Trump campaign about alleged Russian contacts.

"The process was screwed up terribly by the Justice Department, FBI during the Obama administration and things haven't been appropriately fixed yet even during the Trump administration because the Justice Department has put itself in a box with respect to how to run the Deep State that is seemingly running that agency right now".

Now he's admitted that his repeated mention of the so-called "Spygate" scandal is a PR tactic to sway voter opinion-and help stave off the president's impeachment.

"I can remember a time when he would issue a tweet or directive and the reports would be, "In an unprecedented act, the president did X or Y", Yates said May 21 on MSNBC.

Giuliani said an interview between Mueller and Trump would probably be limited to collusion and obstruction. Top congressional Democrats have argued that Republicans want to use the information to undermine the Russian Federation investigation.

He also said Mr. Trump does still want to sit for an interview with Mr. Mueller. She said Department of Justice officials are withholding information from congressional committees because they are possibly hiding a really risky secret. Ryan didn't attend that meeting.

Democrats also objected vehemently to White House lawyer Emmet Flood showing up for part of the closed meeting.

This is part of the propaganda machine.
