Giuliani: ‘It’s clear Comey tried to entrap’ President Trump: ‘He should have been prosecuted’

By Jon Dougherty

(NationalSentinel) Following the release on Thursday of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the conduct of James Comey as it related to his involvement in “Spygate,” presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani said it is “obvious” that the former FBI director was attempting to entrap President Donald Trump so he could be removed from office.



In addition, Giuliani, the mayor of New York City during the 9/11 attacks who hired Comey as an assistant federal prosector in the 1980s, said he thinks the disgraced FBI chief should have been prosecuted.

During a Friday night interview with Fox News‘ Laura Ingraham, Giuliani said that Horowitz’s final report made clear that virtually everything Comey had asserted in the past — that he never leaked sensitive information and that he honestly portrayed his actions to lawmakers and congressional investigators — was untrue.

What’s more, he said, Comey’s claim to President Trump that he was never the subject of an investigation was completely false.

The meeting that Comey had with Trump in January 2017, in which he presented the “Russia dossier” as valid but said the president wasn’t being looked at by federal investigators, “was complete entrapment,” Giuliani said. “One hundred percent.”

“Comey, despite his moral problems, is a very smart guy,” the former NYC mayor continued, “unlike [former special counsel Robert] Mueller, who’s lacking in intellect, this guy’s very smart. He was trying to trap [Trump] like he trapped [former Trump national security advisor Michael] Flynn.

“‘You’re not a target, it’s okay,'” Giuliani said, mimicking Comey. “But I have this thing in my back and I’ll indict you. Horrible thing to do. Any reputable prosecutor would be disgraced by that.

“So he was trying to entrap the president. It was completely disingenuous for him to make these statements now” denying that, the presidential counselor said.

Giuliani said that FBI agents have lost respect for Comey and that in sum, his actions were “worse” than “anything J. Edgar Hoover ever did.”

As for whether the Justice Department should have passed up charging him, Giuliani said no.

The IG report “sort of details the worst director in the history of the FBI,” he said. “He broke every rule of the FBI. I think he should be prosecuted.”

This crime, or series of crimes were committed only in part against the presidential candidate and then, President elect Trump. The main thrusts of all Comey’s infractions and felony crimes were committed against the American Republic and against the American people themselves.

Here’s the basic problem….If Comey is tried but not found guilty, he becomes a Hero of the Establishment. In D.C., and most Cities, it will be impossible to get a jury to find an opponent of Trump guilty. If Comey is not tried, his career carries a big stain for the rest of his life.

It’s a tossup!

Why wasn’t there a Grand Jury? I’m not sure how the director, or a prosecutor can just bring charges or else dismiss the case. It seems there should be a Grand Jury. That’s what Grand Jury’s are for. Obviously there are minor crimes that a prosecutor wouldn’t want to be bothered with, but this is a major case, a case with world wide implications, and a case where there was an attempt to take over the United States. If Barr dismisses the case out of hand, he’s no better than Comey, who made a big show of saying what an… Read more »

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth does not apply to the FBI, DOJ, Clintons, or democrats. It only applies to conservatives.
