It’s no secret that former FBI boss James Comey and vocal critic of President Donald Trump did his best to keep Trump from ever being elected.
In fact, it’s widely speculated the Comey broke a number of laws along the way in his pathetic attempt to take down President Trump.
And even after testifying in front of Congress, Comey is still a free man. But for how long?
Hopefully not long according to one top Trump official.
According to a report from Newsmax, President Trump’s personal attorney and former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani suggested that Attorney General William Barr has enough information to build a case against Comey AND former CIA director John Brennan for treason in their attempts to overthrow President Trump.
My “inexperienced prosecutors hypothesis … I think Brennan ran this damn thing,” Trump’s personal lawyer told host John Catsimatidis during an appearance on “The Cats Roundtable” on AM 970 in New York.
“I particularly think Brennan ran the Papadopoulos-Carter Page part of it. Because that’s a very elaborate counterintelligence plan. Kind of a stupid one. Brennan is smart. But if he goes overboard, he makes a lot of mistakes, which is why he was in trouble all his career … Who the hell would’ve done it in the CIA but a screwball like Brennan?”
Giuliani also told Catsimatidis he thinks Barr’s office has evidence it can use against Comey.
“I think they have Comey,” he said. “I believe that Attorney General Barr was saving it for the really good case, the one that comes pretty close to treason. Because what they did after [Trump] was elected — I don’t say it was treason, it was as close to treason as you can get. They wanted to take out the lawfully elected president of the United States and they wanted to do it by lying, submitting false affidavits, using phony witnesses. In other words, they wanted to do it by illegal means.
“What is overthrowing the government by illegal means? Treason.”
Trump late last week hinted at the release of additional DOJ documents that would show high-level Obama administration involvement in the origins of the Russia probe.
