Giuliani: Mueller team ‘is panicking’ … planted story about WH scapegoat because they can’t prove their case

Rudy Giuliani, the attorney for President Trump, said special counsel Robert Mueller must be panicking based on the story his team presumably planted in the New York Times claiming White House counsel Don McGahn is cooperating with the Mueller investigation because he’s worried that he could be scapegoated.

Giuliani was responding to a question by Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro, who asked: “Who would plant a story or create an effort to legitimize a claim that McGahn is trying to take the fall? Does it tell you that the New York Times is making stuff up and is fake news? Does it tell you that Mueller is starting to panic?”


Giuliani responded by saying the apparently planted story is a signal that Robert Mueller — who has produced no evidence of collusion after a fruitless year-long investigation — is in panic mode.

“The best analysis would be that the Mueller team is panicking,” Giuliani said. “They know they don’t have a case. There was no collusion. There was no obstruction.”

Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor with an impressive winning record, said McGahn’s unfettered cooperation with the Mueller investigation spotlights that President Trump has a clear conscience with respect to the unsubstantiated collusion hoax.

“The president encouraged all the people who testified to tell the truth,” Giuliani said. “We have no reason to believe Don McGahn didn’t do that. McGahn gave testimony that the president didn’t do anything wrong, which he didn’t.”

Giuliani said it’s possible that Mueller’s team planted the New York Times story to pressure President Trump to testify.

“They can’t prove [their case], and they are trying to get the president to testify,” Giuliani said. “And they’re hoping that if they put out a story like this in which they suggest that McGahn is cooperating against him…that he’ll want to come in and explain himself.”

Giuliani said the president wants to testify, but as his attorney, he will not allow Trump to walk into a perjury trap set by Mueller.

“The president wants to testify. The president wants to be open and transparent. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have encouraged 30 witnesses, including McGahn, to testify. He wouldn’t have turned over 1.4 million documents. He wouldn’t have not exerted executive privilege if he didn’t believe that he didn’t do anything wrong.”

Trump confirmed that he did not exert executive privilege with respect to WH counsel Don McGahn’s testimony (even though he has the right to), and encouraged him to cooperate fully with Mueller.

Judge Jeanine asked Rudy Giuliani if the New York Times story was planted during Paul Manafort’s tax-fraud trial to intimidate President Trump.

Giuliani suggested it’s possible, but pointed out that the Manafort trial is totally unrelated to Mueller’s investigation of alleged collusion.

“Whether Mr. Manafort is convicted or acquitted or a hung jury, it’s the same for our case because we’re not a part of it,” Giuliani underscored.

While the mainstream media are gaslighting the public into believing that Manafort’s tax-evasion trial is related to Mueller’s Trump probe, in reality, the cases are totally unconnected.

Paul Manafort was the manager for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign for five months. Trump ousted Manafort amid revelations that he failed to disclose his past lobbying work on behalf of Ukraine.

During Mueller’s fruitless investigation of alleged collusion between Trump campaign aides and Russia, his team discovered that Manafort had allegedly evaded taxes several years before he joined the Trump campaign.

As BizPac Review previously reported, Paul Manafort was indicted for tax evasion and money-laundering for business activities he engaged in between 2006 and 2014.

Manafort did not join the Trump campaign until April 2016, and was fired five months later, in August 2016.

This tangential indictment of Manafort for activities he engaged in BEFORE he worked for Trump underscores once again that Mueller has no case against the president.

Legal experts say Manafort is being maliciously prosecuted in order to “squeeze” him to manufacture a case against President Trump.

Even after being thrown in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day (for a nonviolent, white-collar crime), Manafort has still proffered no evidence that incriminates President Trump or his 2016 campaign. Let that sink in.

P.S. – Rudy Giuliani was a former federal prosecutor whose record of 4,152 convictions with only 25 reversals is one of the winningest records in the history of U.S. Attorneys. Chew on that, Mr. Mueller.
