Rudy Giuliani: Witnesses Will Say FBI and Justice Dept. Were ‘Being Controlled by Hillary Clinton Partisans’

Rudy Giuliani gave a long and rambling interview to Fox News on Friday morning. The former New York mayor once again defended his actions in Ukraine and offered a completely narrative than the one established by the documents and witnesses in the impeachment inquiry.

Giuliani made the same arguments he’s been making for some time about former Vice President Joe Biden being corrupt in his dealings Ukraine – of which there is no evidence – and claimed that the lives of those involved in the Biden ‘investigation’ were at risk.

Fox & Friends’ Brian Kilmeade suggested that it would have been better if Giuliani had used the legal ‘apparatus’ that exists to pursue these matters.

“Brian, you’re being totally naive,” Giuliani said. “The apparatus to look at this, refused to look at it.”

Giuliani spoke at length, at one point saying that witnesses “will tell you at least one of the FBI agents was corrupt. And they didn’t trust any longer the FBI or the Justice Department because they were convinced that they were still being controlled by Hillary Clinton partisans.”

Later in the interview, Giuliani claimed that he and others were risking their lives.

“This ends hopefully with Biden finally being put under investigation,” Giuliani said. “You don’t think if these things were said about Donald Trump and Donald Trump Jr., they wouldn’t be under investigation immediately? Instead, of putting them under investigation, they’re coming after me. They want to kill me.”

After a brief pause and some cross talk, Giuliani added: “Kill me, in terms of reputation. [Viktor] Shokin they are trying to really kill.”
