Giuliani: FBI Agents Who Wanted Hillary Should Go to Bellevue

Giuliani, who works as Trump's lead defense attorney in the probe, made that assertion during a CNN interview with Chris Cuomo on Friday night.

On Friday, the President reacted to the news that his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been sent to jail to await trial by saying the decision was "very unfair".

Citing findings in last week's Justice Department inspector general's report related to the conduct of two senior FBI agents, the former mayor called for a review of the origins of the Russian Federation investigation.

"Instead of investigating President Trump, they should go to Bellevue", he declared, referring to the famous psychiatric ward in New York City.

Giuliani has argued that Trump cannot be indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russian Federation investigation, but could face impeachment if he has done something wrong. "I don't think Mueller and his people need to be investigated, unless something comes out of that", he said. But he said that in the months to come pardons were "certainly not excluded" if Trump concluded "you've been treated unfairly".

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's lead defense attorney in the Russian Federation investigation, said on Friday night that Trump would not pardon anyone involved in the probe while it is ongoing.

Later, he told a different reporter that Trump will not use his pardon power while the investigation is ongoing, but may exercise it after the probe has ended. "I meant he's dumb", Giuliani said. Manafort is accused of witness tampering in a criminal case that stems from his lobbying efforts for Ukraine years before he was a top Trump aide for almost five months during the 2016 campaign. "I don't know, but I want to find out before I go forward", Giuliani said.

The president weighed in Sunday on Twitter with his opinion of the Mueller probe, again calling it a "WITCH HUNT!" and declaring that law enforcement officials had a "Double Standard!" in their investigations of him and Hillary Clinton. But Giuliani said he wants another investigation into the bureau's Russian Federation investigation, which was eventually taken over by Mueller when he was named special counsel. "I think if I could get those pictures of them crying".

The Washington Post reported Sunday that Mueller is pressing to wrap up his findings by the end of summer and, in the words of former Republican leader Newt Gingrich, Trump and his allies were "prepared for war".

Appearing on "Face the Nation", Giuliani said Trump's legal team nonetheless owed it to him to "sort through" the options of how an interview with Mueller could proceed, because "the president wants to do it". "He is not considering it and he will not even entertain thinking about it until after the investigation has been completed", he said.
