COMEY RESPONDS: Blasts Giuliani For Comparing FBI Raiders to “Stormtroopers”
Trump attorney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani joined Sean Hannity Wednesday to discuss the Trump presidency and Mueller witch hunt.
Giuliani ripped fired FBI Director James Comey apart calling him a disgraceful liar and said he should be prosecuted for leaking classified information.
On Thursday morning, Comey lashed out at Giuliani.
Giuliani’s interview with Sean Hannity Wednesday evening was explosive.
Rudy came clean about the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels; it was perfectly legal.
On Cohen, Giuliani told Sean, “Paying Stormy Daniels $130,000 turning out to be perfectly legal. That money was not campaign money. Sorry, I’m giving you a fact not that you don’t know. It’s not campaign money…[Trump] knew he would take care of things like this — like I take care of this stuff with my clients, I don’t burden them with every single thing.”
Giuliani then ripped rogue New York FBI agents for raiding Michael Cohen’s home and office to look for Stormy Daniels dirt, calling FBI agents “stormtroopers.”
Giuliani said, “The settlement payment, which is a very regular thing for lawyers to do. The question there was, the only possible violation there would be: Was it a campaign finance violation? Which usually results in a fine, by the way, not this big stormtroopers coming in and breaking down his apartment and breaking down his office.”
He also called for the Mueller witch hunt to end in the interest of justice.
On Thursday morning, Comey lashed out from his Twitter account over Giuliani’s “stormtrooper” reference.
Comey tweeted: I know the New York FBI. There are no “stormtroopers” there; just a group of people devoted to the rule of law and the truth. Our country would be better off if our leaders tried to be like them, rather than comparing them to Nazis.
