Thursday's HOT MIC

Thursday's HOT MIC

In an interview with the Daily Beast's Betsy Woodruff this afternoon, Rudy Giuliani said he doesn't believe that gob-smacking NBC News report alleging that federal authorities wiretapped the president’s lawyer, Michael Cohen.

“Us lawyers have talked about it, we don’t believe it’s true,” Giuliani told The Beast. “We think it’s going to turn out to be untrue because it would be totally illegal. You can’t wiretap a lawyer, you certainly can’t wiretap his client who’s not involved in the investigation. No one has suggested that Trump was involved in that investigation. So they’re going to wiretap the lawyer, his client, and his client the president of the United States? I don’t think so, not if they want to stay out of jail. Disclosing a wiretap is a federal felony. I never took ‘em home when I was a U.S. attorney.”

Nothing surprises me about the deep state these days, but wiretapping the president's attorney seems like unprecedented dirty pool to me.
