The investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller “is a different kind of Watergate. It’s on the side of the investigator,” Rudy Giuliani, attorney for President Donald Trump, said on Aug. 8.
“You know how sometimes the cover-up is worse than the crime? In this case, the investigation was much worse than the no-crime,” the former New York City mayor said on Fox News’s Hannity.
In explaining why Trump’s legal team rejected Mueller’s terms for interviewing the president, Giuliani said “the real story is not that this case isn’t going to fizzle. It’s going to blow up on them. The real question is, what we talked about before, there’s a lot more to what they did that nobody knows about yet.”
“A lot more to the obstruction of justice, to the collusion, to the fake dossier,” Giuliani added.
Giuliani said the only collusion is the intelligence community using the Christopher Steele dossier to obtain “several fraudulent FISA wires.”
“Can it get any worse? I mean, what do we need to know that this is a totally illegitimate investigation based on a report, a dossier that was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats – probably the biggest illegality so far, the biggest collusion so far,” Giuliani said.
Giuliani added that “I believe that when this plays out over the next year or two, it’s not going to be about President Trump. It’s going to get over with. It’s going to be about all the things they did,” he said of Mueller’s team. “I think it’s going to lead to some very strict – very big reforms, just like Watergate.”
