Rudy Giuliani Would Defend Ivanka Trump From Mueller 'With a Lance,' but Jared Kushner Is 'Disposable'

Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday night that he would charge into special counsel Robert Mueller's offices "with a lance" if Russia probe investigators went after Ivanka Trump, but that her husband Jared Kushner as a man is "disposable."

Giuliani, a former mayor of New York City who is a new member of President Donald trump's legal team, was on Fox News responding to a Politico story from the prior day reporting that the reason Mueller hasn't called Trump's eldest daughter for an interview is that he is saving the president's children until the end, to be risk-averse.

"Ivanka Trump? I think I would get on my charger and go ride into their offices with a lance, if they go after Ivanka," Giuliani told Fox News host Sean Hannity. "Now if they do do Ivanka, which I don't think they will, the whole country will turn on them. If they go after her, the whole country will turn on them. They're going after his daughter?"

Giuliani says Ivanka is a red line, but Jared is... "disposable."

Hard to tell if this is Giuliani's sense of humor, or if he's signaling that Jared is in trouble.

However, Giuliani was far less defensive about Kushner, who has reportedly been questioned by Mueller's team about meeting with a Russian ambassador during the presidential transition.

"Jared is a fine man, you know that. But men are, you know, disposable," Giuliani said with a laugh. "A fine woman like Ivanka, come on."

Unlike Kushner, Ivanka Trump has not been questioned by Mueller's team, despite being with her father in several situations that the special counsel is looking at. She was with the president in Bedminster, New Jersey, last May when he fired FBI Director James Comey—a decision that Mueller is reportedly examining as potential obstruction of justice.

She also spoke briefly with a Russian lawyer and Russian-born lobbyist at a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting that is a focus of Mueller's probe, and was on the same plane as her father when he strategized about how to respond to fallout from the meeting.
