Transcript for Rudy Giuliani: End Mueller investigation today
Welcome to "The view." Well, it is the one-year Mueller investigation which you know who is calling the greatest witch hunt in American history on Twitter. Now a lot of new information was revealed yesterday, and it put his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, a little on the defense last night. Take a look. The same reason they can't indict him, they can't a subpoena. He was looking for dirt on Hillary from the Russians. That's what you do. You shouldn't, but you do it. Nothing illegal about that, and even if it comes from a Russian or a German or an American, it doesn't matter. And they never used it is the main thing. They never used it. They rejected it. If there was collusion with the Russians, they would have used it. What is the time line for this to wrap up? They should do it today. What's interesting about all of that is when -- when it was thought that maybe Hillary's group had gone and looked for dirt on him, it was just -- it was a terrible thing, a horrible thing, and now it's okay. Now that it's him, it's okay because it's just what you do. But what do you think? It's kind of interesting. He is just lying. I mean, you can't collude and get information from the Russians and the Germans. That's treason. I just -- he just keeps on lying and lying and as an attorney, I'm listening to the lies and I'm, like, what are you talking about? He says, this is a witch hunt, it' caught a lot of witches and war locks. 75 charges already. 22 people have been indicted so, the suggestion somehow that the Mueller investigation isn't finding anything is nonsense, and I'm so tired, whoopi, of people saying, collusion, collusion, collusion. Collusion is not a crime, everyone. There is no enumerate for collusion, but the crimes are obstruction of justice and treason, conspiracy, and they are all out there. I have to tell you when you have 75 criminal charges filed already, you can't say that this is a big nothingburger. It's just nothing. We talked about opposition research in Hillary, and I actually think across the boards we should make it illegal to ever have anyone outside of this country giving opposition research. I agree. On both sides. I just think that it's an involvement on some level. I totally agree. In our democracy whether it's justified in someone's mind or not. I think it should be illegal. If they took the money out of politics, it would help a lot. Yes. You can't even run a campaign without all sorts of money, and where there is money, there is dirt very often. You mean, like, lobbying? All that. I don't like that. They tried that. People like money in politics. It's so many issues. My freaking childhood was spent hearing about campaign finance. I will say every day there is a drip, drip, drip, and I come into our show every day, and I say, thank god there is a lawyer here. Thank you. Depending on what channel you watch, and I'm not a lawyer. I don't really understand, but what I do know, and thank you by the way, for explaining it every morning, but -- He is banki people belieing him, Giuliani and trump. It's new on both sides -- on Hillary's campaign and trump's campaign, having a foreign adversary coming to you, saying, I have opposition research on your opponent. That is unprecedented and strange, and people come to you on TV shows all the time and say, I have this information that you need to use. I have this information that you need to show, and anything that I was ever given, even if it was something, like, ridiculous, I would immediately pass it onto my dad's campaign chief of staff, and I was, like, I don't want to touch any of this. I don't know. The idea you're, like, okay. I'll meet with Russia. I'll meet with an adversarial country. Love it. Love it. It shows the ethical ambiguity, and I'm not a lawyer, that could be the rabbit hole we go down. The one piece of evidence that has emerged in the past year that has bothered any of you the most? The money. The payments. The undisclosed payments, the $130,000 through Michael Cohen. Only the most. There is a lot. The whole thing that happened in trump tower with Donald junior talking to the Russians about conspireing to basically screw up Hillary's campaign, and saying that's a Normal thing to saying it was a legitimate race. It was not. I would have to say the don junior e-mails saying, great. They released. That was bad. Anything for you, It just -- the whole election was horrible. One of the worst times in my entire life. The one thing I will say, I'm not a lawyer. Sunny is the only lawyer at this table. There is a lot of smoke here. A lot. If there is smoke, there is a fire. I feel like I'm being -- both sides. Somebody just give me the facts because again, something happened in some place. Tell me if it's a crime or not. I don't know. I didn't go to law school. I think the thing that bothered me the most was the not being able to follow any narrative. Yeah. I just, you know, because one thing will get said and you think, okay. That's what that is, and then you think 45 minutes later, something totally different, and they act like you're the dummy. Yeah. You didn't say that 45 minutes ago. You're changing. It's about lots of stuff. Sunny, do you think that's what everyone wants? That's what all of this is, because this morning -- I'm
