Kirsters Baish| Rudy Giuliani’s sit-down on Wednesday evening with Fox News personality Sean Hannity contained tons of headline-worthy lines. This was Giuliani’s first wide-ranging interview since he made his debut on President Trump’s legal team.
It was claimed that President Trump was aware of the payment that was made to porn star/accuser Stormy Daniels, however “he didn’t know the specifics of it.” It was explained that the money was not campaign money. Giuliani also explained that there would be criteria that would have to be met in order for Trump to testify in front of special counsel Robert Mueller.
Giuliani made one thing very clear. He doesn’t like former FBI Director James Comey at all.
During the interview, Giuliani actually stated that he wished that he had never even hired Comey in the first place when he brought him into the United States Attorney’s Office in the 1980s. He stated that Mueller’s investigation is “tainted” because Comey “seems to be the core of their investigation.”
Giuliani said to Hannity, “I know James Comey, I know the president. Sorry Jim, you’re a liar — a disgraceful liar.”
“Every FBI agent in America has his head down because of you,” Giuliani went on. “It would have been good for God if God kept you out of being the head of the FBI.”

Giuliani explained that he felt Comey should be prosecuted for having leaked a memo to the media through Columbia University Professor Daniel Richman that contained classified information.
He stated to Hannity, “I have an open mind about Bob (Mueller). I’ve known about Comey, I’ve closed my mind about Comey.”
“I know Comey much better, and I have the indignity of unfortunately of having hired him for his first big job. And I’m embarrassed that I hired him.”
There you have it. There’s no beating around the bush here.
Giuliani was interviewed by the Washington Post after he was hired by Trump during the middle of April. During the interview, he explained how he felt about Comey, saying, “Well, Comey I feel I can legitimately punch in the nose because he was my assistant and I’m embarrassed he was.”
“I’d like to take him out of the rolls,” he went on.
Conservative Tribune reports:
…the enmity doesn’t just flow in one direction. Giuliani was one of the targets in Comey’s book, “A Higher
“There was something of an unwritten code about working in the office of Rudy Giuliani,” Comey wrote, according to Politico.
“In his case, the message was that Rudy was the star at the top and the successes of the office flowed in his direction. You violated this code at your peril.”
It’s good to see Giuiani calling Comey out for who he really is and all the things that he has done.
