Rudy Giuliani calls Mueller investigation “illegitimate.”

Funny, I consider the Trump presidency to be illegitimate.

Courtesy of Politico:

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump‘s personal attorney, on Sunday, dinged an investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election as illegitimate.

Asked in an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union” if he believed special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe was legitimate, Giuliani responded, “Not anymore.”

“I did when I came in, but now I see Spygate,” Giuliani told host Dana Bush, referencing a term used by Trump to described revelations that an informant made contact with his campaign as part of an FBI investigation into Russian meddling in the election. Trump has lambasted the Mueller and Justice Department, calling the ongoing investigation as an effort to undermine the validity of his election.

Saying there’s no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, Giuliani argued of Mueller that “the basis on which he was appointed is illegitimate.”

“I know 50 years of investigatory experience tells me they don’t have a darn thing because they would’ve used it already and they wouldn’t be off on collusion, they wouldn’t be off on Manafort, they wouldn’t be off on Cohen,” Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor and former mayor of New York City, argued.

“You’ve got a good case, man, you go right to it,” he said.

First off  I don’t think that Count Chocola here even remembers attending law school anymore. 

Secondly, how can an investigation be called illegitimate when it has racked up over 100 criminal charges against at least nineteen people, five of whom have pleaded guilty? 

Go ahead, compare that success rate to all of the witch hunts concerning Hillary Clinton’s emails, Benghazi, or any of the other bullshit investigations the Republicans launched against the Obama Administration.

No Giuliani is simply adding more ammunition for Trump to use to try and kill the Russia investigation before his family members start being dragged off in handcuffs. 

Once again this is incredibly clumsy and obvious, but it will surely work with the knuckledraggers who thought that voting for Trump was a good idea in the first place.

    Everyone—even House Republicans—admits that the DOJ-FBI investigation first led by Comey, now by Mueller, was initiated when one of Trump’s top NatSec aides got drunk in London and revealed that Trump’s campaign had been offered stolen goods by the Kremlin and was considering it.

    If Robert Mueller is looking at “social media manipulation during the 2016 election,” as the Wall Street Journal says, the chances he’s looking at Erik Prince’s November 4, 2016 interview with Breitbart, in which he in a premeditated way spreads domestic disinformation, are 100%.

    I watched this portion of @realDonaldTrump’s speech at the Naval Academy today, and can’t let it go. In just 2 minutes he makes at least 6 factual errors. Watch the clip and then read the rest of this thread:

    Mueller’s team has obtained a presentation prepared by an Israel-based intel firm that outlines ways in which Trump’s election was helped by fake news, social-media accounts, WSJ reports.

    The firm’s founder attended that 2nd Don Jr. Trump Tower meeting.

    There’s a reason why Columbus Nova’s story keeps changing by the day and there’s a reason why they are covering-up. The truth is not pretty…but it is necessary. Mr. Trump will not serve out his term.

    One reason Donald may be so obsessed with “spies” right now is that he apparently hired Black Cube to spy on American citizens. As always with him, the crimes he believes were committed against him are actually projections of his own evil acts.

    “A detailed report about Mr. Rhodes, compiled by Black Cube…contains pictures of his apartment in Washington, telephone numbers and email addresses of members of his family, as well as unsubstantiated allegations of personal and ethical transgressions.”

    We’re all being judged by the future. Right now. Which side were you on when a cruel, corrupt, venal villain put a “For Sale” sign on America’s government, values, and norms; ripped immigrant children from the arms of their mothers; threatened the free press and right to protest?

    Wow! @RichardEngel got his source to speak on camera that it was Trump that hired Israeli intelligence firm Black Cube to target former Obama’s officials and supporters of the #IranDeal (including myself) in order to discredit and silence us…

    Guliani tells @nbcnews he can’t remember how much money he took from an Iranian opposition group that was once on the US terrorist list. Experts say the group is like a cult, and it pays those who give speeches singing its praises.

    Bluffers bluff, and President Trump just tried to bluff his way through one of the worst weeks of his administration.

    It’s not working. Donald Trump is a terrible poker player. His tells are so clumsily obvious and that we mistakenly give him credit for guile where none exists, and for some cinematic, supervillain cunning where there is only a howling, feral mass of insecurity and need.

    The delta between reality and spin with Trump is always broad, and last week it was unspinnably vast. It’s also been a stunning illustration of just how powerful the division between reality and fantasy has become in the two hermetic media silos that now exist in America.

    For some Americans — a minority, I pray — Trump is a pied piper luring the credulous and the uninformed into accepting lies over truth, comfort over reality and conspiracy over fact. In Trump’s world and that of his angry minions, the winning doesn’t stop, the vast left-wing conspiracy’s witch-hunt against him is both broad and insidious, and the truth is what he wants it to be on any given day.

    …No matter how much he spins it, no matter how many cute brand names and catchphrases he tries to jam into the media flow, at his core, Donald Trump is a man in a rising sea of legal peril, political risk and catastrophic failures. This explains his increasingly erratic behavior and dangerous efforts to corrupt the special counsel process, the Justice Department, and American institutions more broadly.

    We can be dragged down into Trump’s wilderness of mirrors , or we can take a deep breath and appreciate just how truly terrible his week was. With Trump, it’s always the worst week, since the last week.

    At least next week is Infrastructure Week. We’ll always have Infrastructure Week.

    Wilson is a Republican political strategist.

      “anxiety increased more for Baby Boomers than for millennials or for members of Generation X.”
      “The contentious political climate is a significant source of anxiety for a majority of Americans, the survey found. One in five respondents said they were extremely anxious about “the impact of politics on my daily life,””

    All these rich evil traitors who proclaim to be the most dedicated and moral USA patriots are working to keep Trump in power. It’s mind-boggling.
    Rich Republicans are basically the scum of the earth. Plebeian Republicans are ignorant and stupid and gullible and are ‘informed by Fox, Alex Jones,
    et al. propaganda and conspiracies. Illuminati and Deep State conspiracies dance in their tiny minds. How do we survive this degree of voting cretinism
    and sociopathy. The fools who voted for Trump deserve to live in a miserable dystopia but what about the rest of us?

    Giuliani needs to be locked up in prison or the psych ward.
    He admitted that they are purposely lying about the mueller investigation so when the truth comes out no one will believe it.

    Obstruction of justice and trump lies so much only his idiotic 30% base believes his crap anymore.

    ‘illegitimate’ also used to mean bastard. Illegitimate Rudy & DonTheCon define the old standard.
