Trump team ready to 'pressure' Mueller at probe's one-year mark

In an interview, Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, even cited James Comey's mid-2016 exoneration of Hillary Clinton as a model for the Russia special counsel.

President Donald Trump’s attorney has an unlikely new role model for special counsel Robert Mueller: James Comey.

Frustrated by the open-ended nature of Mueller’s Russia probe, which hits its one-year mark on Thursday, Rudy Giuliani says Mueller should follow the example Comey set in 2016, when the then-FBI director investigated — and then publicly exonerated — Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server.

“When Comey closed [the case] in July — although I think it was a complete whitewash — I’d like to have them do that for us,” the former New York mayor said.

Never mind that Comey later re-opened the case days before the 2016 election, after the discovery of new evidence, possibly costing Clinton the election. Or that Giuliani calls Comey “a major phony” and “a little baby.”

I’d like to have them do that for us,” the former New York mayor said. So Guiliani admits he wants Mueller to whitewash the investigation.
