Cuomo noted several times that, with all of Trump’s resources, the president could find out whether his campaign was investigated if he really wants to, rather than peddling media speculation from Fox News. In terms of whether there was an informant, Giuliani said he didn’t really know.
“Apparently the DOJ put a Spy in the Trump Campaign. This has never been done before and by any means necessary, they are out to frame Donald Trump for crimes he didn’t commit.” David Asman @LouDobbs @GreggJarrett Really bad stuff!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2018
“I don’t know for sure, nor does the President, if there really was one.”The showdown continued as Cuomo grilled Giuliani over the White House’s claims that James Comey and Andrew McCabe are proof that the Russia investigation is rife with corruption. As Giuliani blasted Comey as a “damn liar” and a leaker, which devolved into a argument about the legality of the former FBI director’s actions, and whether his firing was the catalyst for Robert Mueller‘s investigation. When Cuomo brought up what Trump told Lester Holt about firing Comey over the Russia investigation, the discussion eventually turned towards Rod Rosenstein‘s oversight of the Russia special counsel. At one point, Giuliani copped to a Freudian slip about firing the assistant attorney general, though that led a discussion about whether Trump
will try to purge the Department of Justice after all of his negative comments about Jeff Sessions. Watch above, via CNN. [Image via screengrab] — —
