WASHINGTON– President Donald Trump’s attorney on Thursday called the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report “a clear victory” for his client.
Rudy Giuliani, who serves as the president’s personal lawyer, spoke on behalf of the president, who was the subject of the Mueller probe for nearly two years.
“We’re very happy,” Giuliani told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” just after the report was released. “A clear victory. Any lawyer would say when you get a declaration you just won.”
Giuliani went on to state that, based upon his findings, Mueller now agrees with Attorney General William Barr on his claims of obstruction and blames “out of control members of his staff who had this very extended definition of obstruction.”
Further, Giuliani accused investigators of “trapping” former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who infamously pled guilty to lying to the FBI, resulting in his being declared a convicted felon.
“They created the crime,” Giuliani said. “Somebody has to do something about that, and rein them in.”
“One of these guys is a terror, never mind,” he added. “One of these guys is a terror and shouldn’t be allowed to prosecute.”
Asked about the response from Democrats who claim Mueller’s report was merely a technical dismissal of charges, Giuliani scoffed.
“The big victory is, no collusion with the Russians. I don’t think you could be any clearer, you can read that collusion 200 pages as much as you want,” he said. “Believe me, I was up two nights going through it and you are not going to find a darn thing that shows that President Trump or anybody on his campaign had any kind of connection with whatever the Russians were doing.”
