Donald Trump's lawyer again questioned the legitimacy of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election, even as a possible interview between Mueller and the president looms.
"They went back home in tatters!"
The Obama administration obtained warrants to wiretap Trump associates by lying to FISA judges.
"Which is where I think, if they're sneaky, they're going", Giuliani speculated about Mueller's team.
"It's not so unprecedented anymore, and oftentimes it doesn't even make it through the full 24-hour news cycle".
However, fellow Republicans urged against a move to dismiss Mueller, drawing similar comparisons to Giuliani's Sunday comment that doing so would too closely echo Watergate, The Hill reported.
"When will the 13 Angry Democrats (& those who worked for President O), reveal their disqualifying Conflicts of Interest? I don't. I did when it came in".
The former New York City mayor said revelations that the Obama administration's Federal Bureau of Investigation used an informant to talk to people on the Trump campaign in the summer of 2016 discredits Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the election and any collusion on the part of campaign associates. "We should stop talking about it", Hayden admonished. Lots of good people can't.

In the video, people can be heard shouting at her to " stop resisting " while a third cop is seen keeping onlookers back. Weinman acknowledged that she was "partly wrong" for not giving the officer her details ― "but I was scared", she wrote.
It is quite fortunate for the American system of justice and democracy that a fact-based investigation operating under the rule of law can withstand the buffeting of the variable winds of public comment.
Giuliani also raised the specter of a protracted legal fight over the question of a Trump interview if Mueller made a decision to seek a subpoena.
Yet Republican lawmakers who warned in the past that firing Mueller would be a "red line" Trump can't cross were mostly silent when, for example, the president started criticizing the special counsel by name in Twitter messages in April. Talk of bipartisan legislation to protect Mueller, discussed in late 2017, has gone silent. Nunes, House Speaker Paul Ryan, House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and Democratic Representative Adam Schiff, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, met at the White House.
In his CNN appearance, he called former CIA director John Brennan and former director of national intelligence James Clapper, both fierce critics of Trump, "two clowns".
"What I know is just what I speculate, not anything that's been said to me", he said.
"And certainly we've seen this pattern before".
"But of course, the meeting was always intended for something very different, and that is the Trump defense team's effort to get information in an investigation implicating the President".
