Former New York City Mayor and a recent hire for Donald Trump’s legal brain trust to battle special counsel Robert Mueller’s team who is investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, just threw his client under the bus during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. During the interview, Giuliani told Hannity, a Trump sycophant, that the former reality show star personally repaid his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen the $130,000 for the “hush agreement” payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels — and that somehow, means he couldn’t have violated campaign finance laws. That makes no sense, by the way.
“You have an investigation in which Mueller is selected the day after he’s turned down for FBI director by [Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein, who was there when he was turned down,” Giuliani said. “There are thousands of people that could have been selected for that job. Also, a friend of [fired FBI director] James Comey.”
Then, of course, Giuliani praised Trump.
“This is our best president in my memory,” he told Sean Hannity. “Even my hero, Ronald Reagan — he straightened the economy out the way President Trump did. But he didn’t get this far ahead on foreign policy as fast as President Trump has.”
“Look at what is going on with North Korea,” Giuliani continued. “I told the president, you’re going to get the Nobel Peace Prize and my proudest moment is when you tell them to shove it.”
Giuliani then apologized for his language, but Hannity assured him he’d said nothing inappropriate.
“This is cable,” he said. “You’re good here.”

Later, the so-called president’s attorney suggested that Mueller may investigate the so-called president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump.
Giuliani said: “I know James Comey and I know President Trump….sorry Jim, I know you’re a liar..you’re a disgraceful liar.”
He said that after revealing that Trump paid off a porn star for her silence.
Giuliani said that former Director of the FBI James Comey should be prosecuted for “leaking confidential information” even though that never happened.
Trump wants the “Hillary standard” and he may regret that.
6. Hannity says he wants the “Hillary standard” for Trump’s potential Mueller interview…”she didn’t have to go under oath.”
One doesn’t need to go under oath to be charged with lying to federal investigators.

Lying to the feds is against the law. Just ask Michael Flynn about that.
Trump will not be treated worse than Hillary, Giuliani said.
8. Re parameters of Mueller interview, Giuliani says “I’m not going to let Trump be treated worse than Clinton..” and then he adds “or Hillary Clinton”
Giuliani referring to Clinton’s interview with the Special Counsel Ken Starr and HRC’s interview with FBI agents.

Then, of course, Giuliani suggested that Hillary Clinton is the real criminal, even though he also threw his boss under the bus.
9, Giuliani just now… “I’m sorry Hillary, I know you didn’t win…but you’re a criminal…you have to go to jail.”
