Rudy Giuliani Calls on Democrats, Media to Admit Mistakes after Mueller Finds No Collusion Between Trump Campaign, Russia

Rudy Giuliani, former New York mayor and personal lawyer for President Donald Trump, issued a veiled warning that whoever convinced the FBI to pursue the investigation into possible Russian collusion would be soon be revealed.

A summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, according to a letter by Attorney General William Barr, found no evidence that Trump and his campaign "conspired or coordinated" with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. However, there was no conclusion on claims of whether the president had obstructed justice.

Giuliani described the report as a "turning point for our country" and said the Democrats "went too far" in their claims of collusion. He called on them to "step back and admit their mistakes," which, if they did, would mean "we can heal."

"If CNN, NBC, MSNBC et al can realize their overreactions, then we have hope for fairer treatment in the future," his tweet read.

But later while he was speaking with Fox & Friends, he agreed when a line from an editorial in The Wall Street Journal was read that asked if "someone may have conned the FBI into one of the great dirty tricks in American political history?"

"Yes, yes, yes," Giuliani said. "And you're going to find out, believe me, who it was. Now the question is if there were three investigations—no evidence of collusion—who made it up?"

He would not specify who he was referring to, saying only that the individual responsible would be held accountable.

"It didn't just come out of thin air. I want to know who did it. Who paid for it? Who fueled it? Because the person that did it, and the group that did it, knows it's untrue because they invented it. Just pay attention," Giuliani said.

He along with Democrats are demanding a full release of Mueller's report. But Jay Sekulow, an attorney for President Trump, told CNN he did not want Trump's written answers to be released because they were confidential.

Sekulow separately told MSNBC's Morning Joe that the Mueller investigation was "honorable because it was a great conclusion" but added that "there were a lot of hiccups during this process," Politico reported.
