Former FBI Director James Comey essentially “orchestrated” the entire Mueller investigation, Rudy Giuliani said during an appearance on The Cats Roundtable radio program Sunday.
The former New York City mayor told host John Catsimatidis that the disgraced FBI director was attempting to “frame” the president and “orchestrated” the entire probe — echoing the sentiment from Peter Strzok’s infamous “insurance policy” text.
“He orchestrated the whole thing,” Giuliani said. “If you look back on it now, there was never any need for Mueller”:
“[Comey] should really apologize to the nation,” Giuliani said. “It’s not a good day when the director of the FBI is found to have violated just about every rule the FBI has … and in a case involving the president of the United States.”
“It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that what Comey was trying to do was to frame Trump,” he added.
He is the guy who prosecuted Martha Stewart. When they couldn’t prove the insider-trading case, they prosecuted her for lying to the FBI. He lied to the court [regarding the FISA court application]. What she said was that she was being prosecuted because she was a celebrity. And I will tell you that I agreed with that at the time. I handled insider-trading cases, and I never prosecuted a one-time insider-trading case
