Giuliani Implies That All Charges Against Indicted Russians Should be ‘Dismissed’
Rudy Giuliani has said a lot of bizarre things over the past couple of months in his defense of President Trump. However, what he tweeted early this morning, might just take the cake for the most bizarre comment he has made recently.
After watching former FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok testify before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees yesterday, Giuliani took to Twitter this morning to let his opinions be known.
“Peter Strzok’s testimony was a disgrace,” Giuliani tweeted. “It taints the entire Mueller witchunt. President Trump is being investigated by people who possess pathological hatred for him. All the results of the investigation are ‘fruit of the poison tree’ and should be dismissed.”
This argument would almost certainly fall apart before a judge, given the fact that the FBI Inspector General found no evidence that Peter Strzok’s “political bias” affected the outcome of either the FBI’s investigation into candidate Donald Trump or their investigation into candidate Hillary Clinton. More significant though, is that it also implies something quite ominous. Guiliani saying that “all the results of the investigation” should “be dismissed” seems to imply that he believes that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s charges against the 13 Russian nationals who are accused of interfering in the 2016 election, should also be dismissed.
These are individuals with close ties to the Kremlin, who have been indicted with what many prosecutors would say is considered to be overwhelming evidence of a crime. These are individuals who literally attacked the United States of America, and Giuliani seems to suggest that their charges should be wiped clean.
