Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has painted his masterpiece.
The Big Q: What should be investigated? "And if you read the report, you'll see that".
"I think that we would prefer questions and written answers". Holding up a copy of the 500-page report, Giuliani criticized the behavior of former Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, including ex-director James Comey and Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok.
"It's crying out for someone to investigate the investigators".
The former mayor of NY, who is part of the President's legal team in the Russian Federation investigation, was on Staten Island campaigning for Republican Rep. Dan Donovan.
Trump told Doocy that he is "actually proud because I beat the Clinton dynasty, I beat the Bush dynasty and now, I guess, hopefully, I'm in the process of beating very dishonest intelligence".
"That kind of investigation should not go forward", he said. "I'm not sure we can possibly recommend being questioned until we know how badly is this investigation infected by what Strzok did at the beginning". Even so, it still affected Comey's choices, and to the degree it was meant to help disrupt the election, it worked.

Democrats are heaping scorn on Trump's tweet that "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea". The authoritarian regime in North Korea has long sought an audience with a U.S.
One FBI agent, Peter Strzok, was singled out for text messages he sent during the campaign. "I did a great service to the people in firing him", he tweeted. The IG and congressional investigators have debunked some of the conspiracy theories about the Russian Federation investigation, including, most recently, allegations of political snooping on the Trump 2016 campaign. Politico first reported Goodlatte's plans to subpoena Strzok.
"I'm still I'm a private citizen, so I'm not binding the White House". Not only were Page and Strzok obviously anti-Trump, but they also weren't even certain there was a substantive basis to the Russian Federation investigation.
Mueller, the former FBI director enlisted by the Justice Department to be special counsel in May 2017, has overseen the wide-ranging investigation that to date has brought charges against 20 individuals.
"We are in rather sensitive negotiations", Giuliani said, adding that it was important to first learn whether Strzok had "infected" the Russian Federation investigation before he was removed past year.
"My advice to him, you know, as long as I'm his lawyer, is not to do it", he added. "If Manfort is convicted, will President Trump pardon him?" However, I am not convinced there is a substantive basis upon which to believe that is possible.
To be clear, there is no doubt about the Russian active measures campaign that targeted the 2016 presidential election.
Trump's issue is with top officials within the agency, not the everyday agents.
"I don't think Mueller and his people need to be investigated unless something comes out of that", Giuliani added.
