Rudy Giuliani on Sunday called special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election “the most corrupt investigation” he has ever seen.
“This is the most corrupt investigation I have ever seen, that the Justice Department is allowing to go forward,” the former New York City mayor said during an interview on ABC’s “This Week.”
When pressed on whether or not President Donald Trump would sit for an interview with the special counsel, Giuliani, who joined his legal team earlier this year, stated that he didn’t think it would be wise due to the bias he believes Mueller has against the president.
“The reality is that there are biases that have to be explored surrounding Mueller,” he continued. “And then how could you expect us to just walk our client like a lamb going to the slaughter? We wouldn’t be lawyers if we would do that.”

Giuliani has gone back and forth on whether or not he believes it is a good idea for the president to sit for an interview with the special counsel since May.
More recently, the attorney accused Mueller of attempting to frame Trump “when he hasn’t done anything wrong” and even went so far as to claim that if the special counsel tried to indict President Trump they wouldn’t be able to, due to his ability to pardon himself.
“I don’t know how you can indict while he’s in office. No matter what it is,” Giuliani said. “If he shot James Comey, he’d be impeached the next day. Impeach him, and then you can do whatever you want to do to him.”
