Giuliani Renews Push To Investigate The Investigators In Russia Probe

As a leading counterintelligence expert, Strzok was involved in opening the investigation into ties between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation.

Giuliani pushed back Sunday on the notion that in discussing his pardon power, the president had been suggesting doing anything untoward. But he said that in the months to come pardons were "certainly not excluded" if Trump concluded "you've been treated unfairly".

Meaning what? As recently as May 2017, when Mueller was appointed, a senior FBI investigator with privileged access to the Russian Federation investigation - one with an apparently personal ax to grind against Trump - wasn't sure whether there was any collusion between the campaign and the attacks.

Echoing Giuliani's view, former White House strategist Steve Bannon said there was no need for pardons because Trump could disrupt the Russian Federation investigation by firing deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller.

Giuliani, however, said the exchange showed a clear flaw in the special counsel's investigation and called on Mueller's work to be suspended. He did not specify how soon any pardons could be expected, but indicated that such action would come after the Mueller investigation. Giuliani said they're not concerned that prosecutors obtained more than 700 pages of Cohen's encrypted texts and have pieced together 16 pages of shredded papers. "He is not considering it and he will not even entertain thinking about it until after the investigation has been completed", he said. "Nobody is taking that away from him".

The president weighed in Sunday on Twitter with his opinion of the Mueller probe, again calling it a "WITCH HUNT!" and declaring that law enforcement officials had a "Double Standard!" in their investigations of him and Hillary Clinton.

Sen. Susan Collins of ME said on CBS' "Face the Nation" that she thought it was helpful Giuliani has recommended against pardons.

Mr. Giuliani has stepped up his criticism after a report Thursday from the Justice Department's inspector general that criticized former FBI Director James Comey for his handling of an investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.

"Let me make it clear right now, he's not going to pardon anybody in this investigation, but he is not, obviously, going to give up his right to pardon if a miscarriage of justice is presented to him after the investigation", Giuliani said.

Citing findings in last week's Justice Department inspector general's report related to the conduct of two senior FBI agents, the former mayor called for a review of the origins of the Russian Federation investigation.

Mr. Giuliani said that the Russian Federation probe was based on documents that former FBI Director James Comey had "illegally leaked".

"That's why you don't want to go under oath", Giuliani said.

"I just said a bunch of illegal things", Giuliani said.
