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. He was referring to last month's FBI raids on Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen's, home and office, and other raids of former Trump campaign head Paul ManafortPaul John ManafortProsecutors drop effort to seize three Manafort properties after Trump pardon FBI offers 0K reward for Russian figure Kilimnik New York court rules Manafort can't be prosecuted by Manhattan DA MORE's home.

“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) MuellerWhy a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel CNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump 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.
