In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday night, Giuliani told host Laura Ingraham "I don't know," when asked if there was a spy in the 2016 campaign.

Giuliani, however, resurfaced the concept later on when discussing what he said were instances of misconduct.

"What they did with [Paul] Manafort, what they did with Michael Cohen, all the illegitimate things they’ve done — possibly placing a spy in the Trump campaign,” Giuliani said.

“All these things are areas where indictments have been dismissed because of government misconduct,” Giuliani said.

“I do not understand what Bob was thinking of, hiring these people,” he added, referring to special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerSenate Democrats urge Garland not to fight court order to release Trump obstruction memo Why a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel MORE.

Trump has repeatedly slammed Mueller's probe into alleged ties between his presidential campaign and Russian meddling in the 2016 election as a “witch hunt” and has called for the special counsel's investigation to end on numerous occasions.

Giuliani also called for the end of Mueller's probe during the interview Wednesday.
