Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the “basis” on which special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to probe Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was “illegitimate.”
Giuliani said, “First of all there are two different investigations.
The counterintelligence investigation is now over for over a year and they weren’t disclosing it to anybody.
Then you get the Comey thing which is a leak of a confidential memo which is illegal for an FBI official to do and that becomes the basis for appointing Mueller.
When asked if the Mueller probe is legitimate, Giuliani said.
