Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Appointment “was unconstitutional”
Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, says that he plans on making the argument that special counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment was unconstitutional.
“Both on its face and as applied, because on its face, the statute itself; and second, the fact that it (the appointment of Mueller) was produced by what might have been a totally illegal counterintelligence investigation they tried to make into a criminal investigation,” Mr. Giuliani said Wednesday evening on TV.
Mr. Giuliani said the leaked memos from the disgraced sacked former FBI Director James Comey may play into his argument. He was waiting on the Justice Department’s inspector general report to follow up on that information. The IG’s report came Thursday is expected to address Mr. Comey leaking those memos.
“Which means we then go to battling over a subpoena, or getting him ready for a small, tailored, limited interview,” Mr. Giuliani said.
