Last week, as new details regarding the FBI’s interview with General Michael Flynn began to surface, many began to call into question the legitimacy of Flynn’s interview by the virulently anti-Trump agent, Peter Strzok.
During a Fox News segment, Martha McCallum references an article that was published in the Wall Street Journal regarding the potential entrapment of General Flynn by the disgraced fired FBI director James Comey and his former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe. McCallum spoke with George Washington University constitutional law professor, Jonathan Turley, to discuss the conditions under which Michael Flynn was investigated.
Today, near the end of a lengthy interview, where Fox News’ Chris Wallace made several failed “gotcha” attempts with President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, he asked Giuliani if there was any possiblity Trump would sit down for an interview with Robert Mueller? Giuliani laughed, telling him, “Good Luck” and that he would agree to Trump sitting down with special counsel Robert Mueller over his “dead body.” When Giulini was asked by Wallace if President Trump thinks General Flynn lied to Vice President Mike Pence and to the FBI, Rudy told Wallace he believes Trump’s ex-national security advisor was “railroaded” and even “framed.”
Fox News– In the spirited back-and-forth with host Chris Wallace, Giuliani also reiterated his claim that Trump initially “didn’t know about” the hush-money payments made to two women by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen that prosecutors have alleged constituted campaign finance violations.
Giuliani said Trump eventually found out about the payments and reimbursed Cohen, adding that Cohen is a “complete, pathological liar” who defied basic principles of ethics by secretly tape-recording his own client for several hours.
“Yes, this man is lying — is that a surprise to you, that Michael Cohen is lying?” Giuliani asked. “The man got up in front of a judge and said, ‘I was fiercely loyal to Donald Trump.’ Nonsense. He wasn’t fiercely loyal to him, he taped him. He sat there with [CNN anchor] Chris Cuomo, told him he wasn’t being taped, showed him a drawer and he lied to him and taped him for two hours.”
