Giuliani: Sessions Should Say ‘Enough is Enough’ on Mueller Probe

Rudy Giuliani stated Thursday morning that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should “step in and close” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

“Everybody forgets, the basis of the case is dead,” the former New York City mayor said on Fox and Friends. “Sessions should step in and close it. And say ‘enough’s enough.’”

Giuliani, an ex-U.S. attorney and a new addition to the president’s legal team, reiterated the White House’s contention that there is “no evidence” the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. The former mayor also criticized the Justice Department and the FBI’s treatment of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

On Monday, a list of questions leaked that Mueller planned to ask the president should he be allowed to interview him. When asked about them, Giuliani was dismissive.

“They’re ridiculous questions,” he scoffed. “‘What did you think?’ ‘What did you feel?’ ‘What were you dreaming?’…I thought Freud wrote them.”

“What they’re really trying to do is trap [Trump] in perjury,” he added. “And we’re not suckers.”

Giuliani’s remarks come just hours after a bombshell appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Wednesday night, in which he admitted that President Trump repaid long-time personal attorney Michael Cohen the $130,000 in hush money Cohen gave porn star Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had a one-night stand with the president in 2006.

The president’s new lawyer said Trump was unaware of the payment arrangement until about ten days ago, and that Cohen made it to protect Trump’s family.

Trump, who previously said he did not know about the Daniels payment, corroborated Giuliani’s account, and insisted Cohen had been reimbursed with a “monthly retainer, not from the campaign and having nothing to do with the campaign.”
