Rudy: When Probe Is Over Mueller Won’t Have ‘A Stitch Of Evidence’ Against Trump

April 26, 2018 - 8:00 am

WASHINGTON (1010 WINS/AP) -- When President Donald Trump hired Rudy Giuliani for his legal team, word was Rudy was there to bring an end to the Mueller investigation.

Now, sources say Rudy met with Mueller's team on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Giuliani offered a takeaway.

"I can guarantee you this; when Mueller is finished, no matter what he does, he's not going to have a stitch of evidence that he colluded with Russia. Now that's a disgrace, the case should be over," he said.

Giuliani said his objective is to end the investigation and distraction from the critical issues facing the president.

In the meantime, the Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on a bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller's job -- legislation that has split Republicans as President  Trump has repeatedly criticized Mueller's Russia investigation.

The bill scheduled to be considered Thursday would give any special counsel a 10-day window to seek expedited judicial review of a firing. Two Republicans and two Democrats introduced the legislation earlier this month as Trump publicly criticized the special counsel.

A handful of Republicans have supported it, but most have opposed it, arguing that it is unconstitutional or unnecessary. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has argued that Trump won't move to fire Mueller and has insisted he will not hold a full Senate vote on the legislation.
