Giuliani takes aim at ‘phony politicians’ leading FBI over Russia investigation

President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani lambasted current and former top officials at the FBI and the Department of Justice on Saturday for the years-long investigation into President Trump’s campaign and Russian election interference on Saturday.

In an interview with Jeanine Pirro on Fox News, the former New York City mayor predicted that evidence of criminality on the part of top FBI officials both currently and no longer in the administration would be uncovered.

{mosads}”What they did here, I believe, over the next six months, we’re going to uncover evidence, I believe, that what they did here was criminal,” Giuliani said. “Somebody made this up, Jeanine. Somebody conceived this. And they superimposed it, and they went out and tried to prove it.”

“And we have to find out: Who’s the brains behind this? Couple of, four or five possibilities. I think we’ll find them,” he continued.

Giuliani added that his suspicions were limited to top brass at the FBI, adding that field agents and regular agency personnel were just trying to serve their country.

“Well, first of all, I know you agree with me. The people it indicts are the corrupted politicians at the top of the FBI and DOJ. No field office of the FBI is implicated in this. No agent who is sacrificing his life to protect us. It’s a bunch of these phony politicians at the top who corrupt themselves because they want to suck up to whoever’s in power,” he said.

Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation ended last week and a report issued by Attorney General William Barr on the investigation’s findings claimed that it established no link between the Trump campaign and Russian efforts to interfere in the election.

The White House and its allies have held Barr’s report as a victory over the past week, attacking both Democrats and the mainstream media for claims made about Trump and his campaign throughout the course of the investigation.

Democrats, meanwhile, have called for the full release of Mueller’s report to Congress and for Barr to testify publicly.
