Rudy Giuliani made a big claim over the weekend. A new IG report is expected this week and as a result, Giuliani thinks it could mean big trouble for embattled former FBI director James Comey.
According to The Hill:
President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday that he thinks former FBI Director James Comey could be prosecuted as a result of a report from the Justice Department’s (DOJ) internal watchdog that is expected to be released next week.
“I think the report of Horowitz, the [inspector general], and the Justice Department will confirm that Comey acted improperly with with regard to the Hillary Clinton investigation,” Giuliani said an interview with radio host John Catsimatidis.
“The first thing we are going to get is a report from Inspector General Horowitz on Comey’s handling of Hillary, which I think is going to be very very critical of Comey, as it should be,” Giuliani continued. “Comey, really, has a chance of being prosecuted as a result of, but we’ll see.”
In a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on Thursday, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz said that he planned to release a report about the FBI’s probe into former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s emails during the 2016 election on June 14.
Comey has been long accused of acting improperly in regards to the Clinton investigation. This week is huge and should finally give some closure to this speculation.
