(National Sentinel)Â Lawbreaker:Â In an interview recently withÂ Fox Newsâ€™ Sean Hannity, former federal prosecutor and New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who recently joined President Donald J. Trumpâ€™s legal team, made a candid, startling accusation that goes to the depth of Obama-era corruption.
In a wide-ranging interview that touched on a number of subjects and even broke news regarding the presidentâ€™s alleged tryst years ago with porn star Stormy Daniels, Giuliani said that because he leaked classified memos, fired FBI Director James Comey ought to be prosecuted.
As reported byÂ The National Sentinel:
Giulianiâ€™s statement is the most damning yet from a high-profile figure on the Trump legal staff and, because of his former status as an ace prosecutor on one of the most powerful U.S. district courts in the country, gives his allegation instant legitimacy.
Referring to Comey as â€œa disgraceful liar,â€ he also said special counsel Robert Muellerâ€™s â€œwitch huntâ€ investigation â€” which is based on false pretenses (the bogus â€˜Russia dossierâ€™) â€” should come to an end in the interest of justice.
â€œI have never, everâ€¦ leaked a damn thing,â€ said Giuliani, referring to his time as a U.S. Attorney. â€œI would have considered resigning if I ever did that.â€
Giuliani is referring to Comeyâ€™s admission that he leaked memos about conversations he had with the president to at least three people, including members of his own legal team. Comey claims the memos are his â€˜personal property,â€™ sort of â€œlike a diary,â€ but judicial and constitutional experts disagree. They say that by virtue of the fact that direct conversations with the president are automatically protected and, thus, classified.
And yet, he remains untouched by the Sessions-run Justice Department, for some unknown reason, and has never been questioned by special counsel Robert Mueller.
In addition, others have speculated that Comeyâ€™s using the same excuse he gave for Hillary Clinton regarding her mishandling of classified data: That she didnâ€™tÂ intendÂ to leak anything, therefore, sheâ€™s irreproachable.Â
Itâ€™s nonsense, of course, and whatâ€™s more, Comey knows it. So does Giuliani, who has a stellar reputation as a prosecutor in his former life.Â
From there, Giuliani also criticized the manner in which Trumpâ€™s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was raided by the FBI last month in a manner reminiscent of â€œstorm troopers.â€
To recap, Mueller referred the case to the U.S. Southern District of New Yorkâ€™s prosecution team, reportedly on the basis that Cohen violated â€œcampaign financeâ€ laws when he made a $130,000 payment to adult entertainment star Stormy Daniels. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein signed off on the raid. Thereâ€™s been no open-source reporting suggesting that Trump was aware any of this was happening until the raid was launched.
In his Hannity interview, Giuliani broke some news by claiming that Cohen was reimbursed by Trump over the course of several months, meaning that there is no way the payment could be considered a campaign contribution. Whatâ€™s more, Giuliani pointed out that violations of campaign finance statutes a) are investigated by the Federal Election Commission, not the Justice Department or the FBI; and b) most often result in a fine. It should also be noted that Cohen has yet to be accused of any crime, and while that may change, this entire episode looks like the Mueller investigation â€” a political operation rather than an attempt at serving justice.
Giuliani also said something else in the interview â€” that the Mueller investigation is â€œtotally taintedâ€ because he was appointedÂ the day afterÂ he was turned down to become FBI director â€œby Rosenstein, who was there when Mueller was turned down.â€
â€œThere are thousands of people that could have been selected for that job,â€ he said, noting that Mueller â€œis a friend of James Comey,â€ who seems to be their core of the investigation.â€
This thing gets dirtier by the day.Â
