In a Sunday interview on New York AM 970 radio’s The Cats Roundtable, Rudy Giuliani, legal counsel for President Trump, described the Deep State’s attempt to take down Trump as “as close to treason as you can get.”
“I think [former CIA Director John] Brennan ran this damn thing…” Giuliani said of the FBI’s attempt to entrap Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. “Brennan is smart, but if he goes overboard, he makes a lot of mistakes, which is why he was in trouble all his career. So, that one I’m sure is orchestrated by CIA. And who the hell would’ve done it in the CIA but a screwball like Brennan?”
Referring to Brennan and other Deep State operatives like James Comey, Giulani added, “[W]hat they did after [Trump] was elected, I don’t say that it’s treason, but it’s 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 a government by illegal means? A coup… and it’s also treason.”
