Rudy Giuliani said on Wednesday that Robert Mueller's team is trying to "frame" President Trump.
Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani has reportedly accused special counsel Robert Mueller's team of trying to "frame" the president.
According to the Associated Press, Giuliani stated Wednesday in Israel that the special counsel's team consists of "13 highly partisan Democrats...(who) are trying very very hard to frame him to get him in trouble when he hasn't done anything wrong."
Giuliani's remark echoes President Trump's statements about the Mueller probe in the past.
"The 13 Angry Democrats (plus people who worked 8 years for Obama) working on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, will be MEDDLING with the mid-term elections, especially now that Republicans (stay tough!) are taking the lead in Polls.
There was no Collusion, except by the Democrats!" Trump tweeted last week.
"There was No Collusion with Russia (except by the Democrats).
When will this very expensive Witch Hunt Hoax ever end? So bad for our Country," Trump wrote in another tweet on Saturday. "Is the Special Counsel/Justice Department leaking my lawyers letters to the Fake News Media? Should be looking at Dems corruption instead?"
These tweets come after the Senate Intelligence Committee leaders said in a joint statement on May 16 that the panel agrees with the U.S.
intelligence community's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election "for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton.".
