Fox News host calls out Giuliani to his face over Mueller report lies


Wallace: You had said that if you were going
to release the counter-report, it was going
to focus on obstruction.
Here’s what the president had to say about
that after the Mueller report was released.
Trump: They’re having a good day.
I’m having a good day, too.
It was called no collusion, no obstruction.
Wallace: But Mayor, that’s not true.
The Mueller report makes it clear, especially
on the issue of collusion—
Giuliani: Obstruction.
Wallace: Obstruction, rather, that he’s
leaving it to Congress.
And I want to pick it up on the report.
“The conclusion that Congress may apply
the obstruction laws to the president’s
corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords
with our constitutional system of checks and
balances and the principle that no person
is above the law.”
So Mueller invites Congress to look into this
and the president, in terms of Congress, hasn’t
been exonerated at all on the issue of obstruction.
Giuliani: Well you never get exonerated.
He demonstrated in the case of Comey, that
he could fire someone and not interfere in
the investigation because immediately it was
taken up by someone else.
He told Lester Holt that he realized—
Wallace: No sir.
I’m not asking about Comey, I’m asking
about Mueller.
Giuliani: But I’m pointing out with his
prior conduct, he removed Comey and he said,
“I realize it’ll lengthen the investigation.”
And now, if he had fired Mueller, he would
have expected someone else came and took it
over.
The guy had conflicts of interests.
The guy hired a highly partisan, biased—
Wallace: It also had come up—I understand
you’re trying to make the case but we do
have limited time here.
Giuliani: I’m not trying to make the case,
I’m trying to tell you there’s an alternative
explanation.
Wallace: There’s another alternative explanation
that Mueller makes.
And Mueller’s explanation is that two days
earlier, the report has come out in the paper,
and now Mueller is investigating him for obstruction
of justice.
And for the first time in this investigation,
for the first time the president directly
is a target of the investigation.
Giuliani: Chris, what you’re doing is, you’re
taking the Mueller report, which is a prosecutor’s
version of what happened.
You’re giving it full credit.
And you’re not giving me a chance to explain
the other side, which is very, very strong,
and was left out by the prosecutor.
Wallace: One of your arguments has been that
the obstruction of justice can’t have happened
because there was no underlying crime.
That’s what you say.
You say that he was being framed and he was
fighting back.
Let’s look at what you said, sir.
Put it up on the screen.
Giuliani: It’s kind of ridiculous to go
after a man for obstruction when he was falsely
accused, he was defending himself, his intent
in each one of these situations, all 10 of
them is easily explained as an intent to not
get framed.
Wallace: The special counsel says that what
you just said is not true.
Volume 2, page 157, “Obstruction of justice
can be motivated by a desire to protect non-criminal
personal interests, to protect against investigations
where underlying criminal liability falls
into a gray area, or to avoid personal embarrassment.”
Mueller says the injury to the justice system
is just as great, it doesn’t matter if there
was an underlying crime, it’s still obstruction.
Giuliani: Well when did Mueller become God?
Mueller says the injury to the justice system
is just as great– there was no injury by
the way.
We’re talking about an inchoate crime.
We’re talking about something that didn’t
happen.
There was no obstruction.
Nothing was denied him.
Nobody crushed cell phones like Hillary did.
Nobody deleted 33,000 emails like Hillary’s
people did.
And nobody bleached a server like Hillary
did.
There was no obstruction.
They don’t point to a single obstruction
in their investigation.
I’ll tell you what, I don’t see how president
Hillary survives this.
Honestly, if it weren’t for blaming to Hillary
Clinton for everything Trump does, what would
Republicans talk about?
Their entire PR strategy is to pivot to a
woman who has not held public office in almost
eight years.
But even without Hillary, Giuliani’s defenses
are tenuous at best.
He claims that Trump couldn’t have obstructed
justice because he wasn’t looking to obstruct
the investigation, he was simply acting in
response to the vicious Democrats’ false
accusations.
But Giuliani is purposefully conflating motive
and intent, of which the difference is really
important.
He says in all 10 instances, Trump’s intent
is not to get framed, which is untrue.
His MOTIVE may have been not to get framed
or that he felt he was acting in response
to an unfair probe, but his INTENT was to
stop this investigation into HIM from moving
forward or, otherwise put, to obstruct justice.
And guess what—motive is irrelevant and
the intent is what matters.
Giuliani either doesn’t know the difference
and should probably be disbarred.
Or, more likely, he does and he’s banking
on the fact that everyone else doesn’t.
But Giuliani goes on to say that of course
Trump firing James Comey wasn’t obstruction
because he knew the investigation would be
taken up by someone else, which ended up being
Mueller.
And so of course Trump wasn’t obstructing
by trying to fire Mueller because, like before,
he knew someone else would take up the investigation
after him.
There are… so many things wrong with that.
First of all, firing James Comey in and of
itself WAS an instance of obstruction.
Doing it twice doesn’t negate that; it makes
it TWO instances of obstruction.
And second, why do you think Trump would constantly
replace the person investigating him?
Is he truly looking for a neutral arbiter?
Of course not.
Robert Mueller IS a registered Republican.
He was appointed by Rod Rosenstein, who TRUMP
himself appointed as Deputy Attorney General.
Trump was looking for a lackey, just like
literally everyone else he surrounds himself
with, and he would have kept going until he
got it.
He’d have appointed Don Jr. if he could,
so let’s not pretend that the guy was interested
a nonpartisan examination of the facts.
And third, just like Chris Wallace mentions,
two days before Trump tried to have Don McGahn
remove Mueller, it was revealed that Trump
was a target of Mueller’s probe.
That’s why he wanted him removed.
To pretend otherwise is nothing more than
very poorly-written political theater.
And finally, Giuliani’s most fragile argument,
that Trump didn’t obstruct justice because
he didn’t follow through with firing Mueller.
But a) that wasn’t by his own doing.
He did order Don McGahn to remove Mueller
on TWO occasions; it was only because McGahn
threatened to resign that Trump didn’t follow
through.
If I offer to pay a guy to kill someone else
and they refuse, that’s not something I’m
going to walk into a police station bragging
about.
And b) there IS something called “endeavoring
to obstruct.”
This too, is what Giuliani referred to as
an inchoate crime (which is basically defined
as an attempt to commit a crime), but endeavoring
to obstruct IS STILL PROSECUTABLE.
In fact, that EXACT charge was Included in
his articles of impeachment, as “interfering
or endeavoring to interfere with the conduct
of investigations” by the DOJ, the FBI,
the special prosecutor, and Congress.
So Rudy will continue to do the morning talk
show circuits spouting out flimsy defenses
of Trump, but the fact is that the president
is gonna need some kind of miracle to protect
him from the facts laid out in the Mueller
report—and Rudy Giuliani is not it.

  1. Rudy go back to the moon 🌙 where you live all the time.

  3. Giuliani is far from his lofty days as a respected leader during 9/11. I honestly think that he has some sort of dementia. Such a fall from grace.

  4. Trump's intent was to hold this country together when it was being torn apart by the Mueller Investigation. AT THE END OF THE DAY IF THERE HAD NOT BEEN ILLEGALLY CONDUCTED "SURVEILLANCE" ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO INVESTIGATION. AND IF TRUMP IS WORKING WITH RUSSIA HE'S DOING A REALLY LOUSY JOB BECAUSE TRUMP HAS LEVIED MORE SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA THAN ANY OTHER PRESIDENT.

  5. Rudy whatever his name he's a waste of time this guy is a idiot this guy put Mobsters in prison criminals in prison and he can see the truth about this con artist come on this guy is a lunatic

    BOYCOTT ALL SPONSORS OF FOX.

  9. You know Trump and Rudy were bumping peter heads in the Oval Office? That in itself should be grounds for impeachment! Just saying!!

  10. Trump yelled and tweeted daily how he wanted Mueller fired and the investigation closed. Did you forget that Rudi Diluted Giuliani? The news has become so ridiculous. The lies are mountainous. and Trump needs to go there are no debates left to have

  11. This dumbass Rudy Giuliani is saying shit that happened before he used it as what they were saying. Going over everything he has said to make up an excuse. And there's new stuff that mrs. Clinton has done but never said it before? Their using everything said by all them to add crimes against mrs Clinton. You know the lady who won popular vote by over 3 million votes? Stop sniveling Rudy.

  12. You idiots believe Swamp people like Chris Wallace. The Swamp created these pukes. Brian Tyler Cohen is a triggered idiot

  13. He is a jackass leave God out of these we the smartest people knows we are not God ..what abaut you allien ?

  14. Rudy when you fire the guy investigating you that’s obstruction of justice
    And this is about trump not Hillary it’s about the crook in the Whitehouse

  15. Giuliani, just said, "You never get exonerated."
    Then wouldn't that mean by his own statement, Trump can't even be cleared/exonerated of Collusion. Umm 🤔

  16. It boggles my mind that a guy like Rudi who brought down the mob has become a contradiction. Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.

  17. 🤬🤬 GET OVER HILARY !!! She has ZERO to do with anything !!! Chump trump DID try to block the investigation…just because he FAILED does NOT mean he CAN'T be charged !! My God what a terrible lawyer this oaf Guiliani is ! Framed ?! 🤣🤣 get real…no reason to frame the idiot trump…he does something wrong every single day !

  18. Who believe anything trump and him say Rudy fuck his kin people and trump is fucking his daughter two bitch Dogs

  19. All trump people say something today and lie about it the next day this is the way of satan and his people

  20. Guiliani is a joke, a senile old-fart who spew bull-shit every time he utters a sentence. There is not point on interviewing him or paying any attention to what he says. The same should be said about Trump, but regrettably he´s the POTUS.

  21. All of you demorat RETARDS better get your snot rags out to wipe your pitiful tears. President Donald J, Trump will win again in 2020! BWHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  22. Wasn,t Guiliani involved in moving all the steel from tower 7 at 911.I thought that would be a crime but then again take a look from the American angle ;and the whole mess looks like it was attacked by 20 odd ragtag middle eastern types , wasnt it !

  23. Chris wallace is the only one worth his salt at fox news. I hate that he works for russia tv. Another network should give him a spot.
    Its a stalin tactic…he killed 40 million people, but never took the blame. He just blamed it on someone else and clinton is trump's someone else.

  24. No president uses an unsecured cell phone, or installed 25 people without proper security clearances. Or uses unsecured emails , or gives out top secrets in the Oval Office to the Russians, or sides with dictators , when is this nightmare going to end?

  25. They asked Barr….Do you think it's ok for a campaign to share polling data with Russia? Barr replied: Where was THAT? They had to tell him what page it was on. Go figure.

  26. Giuliani who got away with his part of obstruction in 9/11 and probably got paid off in the process is hoping to pull this kind of action off again with his involvement with Trump. Connect the dots people and you can see why Trump called on certain people to be in his corner.

  27. 😆😉👌How dare Foxed news to fact check Trumpinnocchio's old doggy Rudeoff, & without owner Dennis Dennison's permissions.😳🤠

    🦊👍📽😒🎬💡🤒🎙📑🤷‍♂️🛡🤡O'shit 🤦‍♂️

  28. Ive decided to stop watching videos on you tube, Because there so many individuals that have decided that the only way to be able to get anyone to listen to them , is to tell the biggest lie they can as to shock and aww to quote some of these people but the reason for all of this is to make our President look as bad and guilty of at least some of the lies there accusing him of, so the General public will think hes got no chance of winning ,.The reason for all of this ,is because the left still dont have a plan, they are liars and this is the dumbest way they have ever tried to take a opponent out, Mr Trump is not anything, like there trying to make him out too look.Chris Wallace , Steven Colbert , then theres there the whole Democrat party wanting to take the wind out of the sale on the warrants that are made out for them or several of the people who break the law. Colbert is the worst i believe hes come up with the most lies yet.The sooner they realize that Trump will not back down from draing the swamp and keeping his promise ,so they might as well stop the lying and fa CV e the crimed some of the. Face ! TRUMP 2020

  29. Fox fucken lies and lies and lies but Rudy is a fucken arsehole who should go to jail with trump.
    Nostradamus predicted trump will be shot and killed.

  30. Really Rudy your arguments fails in light of the FACT that Mueller posted all 10 of Trump's intentions to obstruct justice, end of story. Your ATTEMPT to use lawyer speak isn't workin in light of the fact Mueller has also been a life time Republican unlike you.

  31. Think about Giuliani applying for the disability benefits
    "So where did you work before?"
    "I was an attorney of southern district of New York. I was a mayor of New York. I was the personal lawyer of the President of the united states"
    "Ok, you are 100% mentally disabled. Benefits granted.

  32. Trump hired Barr ……Barr turn's out ,is a great puppet
    Walmart is running out of knee pad's
    It's a good thing some Republican's are standing down from Trump's lies
    And can sell their knee pads

  33. What a stupid argument. He wanted to get rid of Mueller because of conflict of interest and biased! W/no intention of impeding the investigation! Keep up the fake news and false narrative!!!

  34. rudy is that creepy uncle that people refuse to let they're kids sit on his lap or leave alone with.this is a worthless human being and a waste of space

  35. Giuliani deserves a hard smack across the face with a 3-day-old mackerel. That would probably knock his dentures across the room and smear his makeup.

  36. Giuliani must be the still unidentified FBI "plant" inside the Trump white house.
    Nobody could screw things up as badly as he constantly does by accident.
    .

  37. I'd love to know how in the HELLL this moron ever was elected to be mayor of NY.
    Giuliani is so stupid, he should have been Governor of Alabama.

  38. Hillary…it's been 3yrs since the election. Mueller stated "what the definition of obstruction is" and like a checklist, Trump, by himself, of his own volition checked all the boxes. This shouldn't be surprise to his supporters or anyone else as he has always been a conman, swindler and crook. Putting perfume on a pig doesn't make it less than a pig nor does it make it smell nice.

  39. He's there lying saying there was no obstruction, yet Mueller has claimed multiple times at this point, that he did in fact obstruct justice and HAS NOT cleared Trump of that fact!

  40. What happened to giuliani I thought he was a good guy he's as bad as the mobsters he took down in the 80s he's a criminal now himself

  41. I remember when Giuliani was the mayor of New York. The best they ever had.Wha’Hapen? He sold his sole to the devil. I thought he had more pride than that. I think Trump hired him, cause the two of them think alike. Giuliani is an extension of Trump. It’s sad. Trump took him in because of all the favours Giuliani did for him during his Buy and Bankruptcy days.

  42. But they always listen to the prosecutor called the prosecutors Nevala shit you got a plea guilty these days to give minimum time because if you try to find the prosecutor you go get maximum time

  43. Rudy should change his name to Shilliani. He is one of the biggest bullshit artists I’ve ever heard. He knows it’s bs ,he knows that Wallace knows its bs and yet he keeps it coming. It’s as if he might explode if he dosent spew bs to lower his internal bs pressure .
