Rudy Giuliani, former New York City Mayor and legal adviser to President Trump, said during a recent interview that the Mueller report has run its course, and will prove damaging for Democrats who continue to fixate on the collusion narrative.
“It’s over,” Giuliani said, reaffirming his statement when pressed by host Laura Ingraham, who suggested Democrats will look to use the Mueller report to campaign against Trump in 2020.
Giuliani again asserted, “It’s over, but they just don’t know it yet,” and went on to slam former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, as well as the investigation itself, while clearly stating that the president never asked anyone to lie during the probe.
In the same segment, Laura Ingraham and Rudy shared a laugh when discussing why Democrats are still “mad.”

“It’s over,” said Rudy Giuliani to host Laura Ingraham on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” on Thursday night about the collusion accusations that were definitely addressed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which Attorney General Bill Barr released with redactions on Thursday to Congress and to the American public.
“It’s not over,” responded Ingraham. “They [the Democrats] are going to run on this for 2020.”
“It’s over,” repeated Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City who has been serving as a legal adviser to the president. “But they just don’t know it yet.”
After a nearly two-year investigation, the report released on Thursday showed that special counsel investigators did not find any proof of any collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russia — after Democrats and leftists insisted every single day practically since President Donald Trump was elected that this was the case.
The report did show some controversial actions by the president that the special counsel team reviewed as part of the probe.
Democrats immediately went after Barr, said he was acting as a lawyer for the president rather than as an attorney general — and demanded a fully unredacted version of the report.
Giuliani told Ingraham his biggest issue with Mueller was the “partisan,” “biased” staff of people he selected to work on the investigation.
“The fact is the actions of an innocent man are totally different from the actions of a guilty man,” said Giuliani. “So, if I’m a bank robber and I rob a bank and I tell you to say that we had dinner the night the bank was robbed, I’m asking you to lie. But if I’m an innocent man and we had dinner, and you’re my alibi witness but the honest one, I’m asking you to testify for me, I’m even pushing you to do it. I’m begging you to do it … I’m just seeking justice.”
“But did the president tell anyone to lie?” said Ingraham.
“No, absolutely not,” he replied.
