Giuliani: FBI, prosecutors investigating Trump belong in the psych ward
President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani suggested on Saturday that FBI agents and special counsel prosecutors should go to a psychiatric ward instead of investigating Trump.
"Instead of investigating President Trump, they should go to Bellevue," Giuliani said, referencing the Manhattan psychiatric ward.
"Wackadoodles," he added, waving his hands by his head with wide eyes.
The former New York mayor made the comments in Staten Island while campaigning for Republican Rep. Dan Donovan, New York-based Spectrum News NY1 reported. Donovan, who has been endorsed by Trump, is currently running a tight reelection race against former Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.).
Giuliani said the special counsel's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia is "made up of a bunch of distorted human beings who cried" when Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election in 2016.
"Ahhhhh we want Hillary," Giuliani said of the FBI. "What's going to happen? I need a psychiatrist."
Giuliani's comments come days after the Justice Department's (DOJ) internal watchdog released its highly anticipated report on Thursday, which found that former FBI Director James Comey "deviated" from FBI and DOJ norms while examining Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as secretary of State.
Trump said Friday the report "totally exonerates" him of any wrongdoing, however, the report did not probe his conduct.
Trump and Giuliani frequently castigate special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, referring to it as a "witch hunt" on numerous occasions.
