Giuliani challenges Holder: There are no grounds for a civil rights case against Ferguson cop

When asked about the possibility of federal charges being filed against police officer Darren Wilson, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Attorney General Eric Holder is going to have to find probable cause where a grand jury has said there is none.

“Attorney General Holder is going to have to take a case in which a jury couldn’t find probable cause to indict and he’s going to have to find probable cause in front of a federal grand jury when there are seven African-American witnesses supporting the police officer’s testimony,” Giuliani said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”

Giuliani, a former prosecutor, said the Darren Wilson case should have never gone to a grand jury.

“Having read the transcripts of the grand jury FBI interviews and all of that, and having been a prosecutor for thirteen years, I don’t see how this case normally would even have been brought to a grand jury,” he told host Chris Wallace.

“This is the kind of case, had it not had the racial overtones and the national publicity, where a prosecutor would have come to the conclusion that there was not enough evidence to bring to the grand jury.”

“It’s an impossible case to present to a grand jury,” Giuliani concluded.

He agreed that blacks have a legitimate complaint about how they are treated by police, and drew on his own experiences as a former mayor of a large urban city to discuss possible solutions.
