Rudy Giuliani asked for apologies after Mueller report submission



President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani joined scores of Trump allies who connected the lack of new indictments following special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report on the Russia investigation to clearing Trump from further suspicion of Russian collusion, a claim that hasn’t been specified by other investigators.

Giuliani tweeted Saturday morning that Rep. Adam Schiff, who heads the House Intelligence Committee, should apologize for saying in February there is a wealth of evidence that President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.

“[Adam Schiff] said ‘there is significant evidence of collusion involving Trump campaign,'” Giuliani wrote. “I trust he is relieved there is no collusion. And I hope he will apologize for his mistake. We all make them. The real virtue is to admit it. It would help us heal.”

Giuliani was referring to an ABC News interview in February where Schiff told host George Stephanopolous there was “ample evidence of collusion” between Trump’s campaign and Mueller’s findings from his two-year investigation.

The tweet about Schiff was Giuliani’s second call-out related to the report. Hours earlier, Giuliani took aim at former CIA Director John Brennan for a comment he made last year that Trump’s July 2018 press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin was “nothing short of treasonous.”

“John Brennan said that POTUS action re Russian collusion was nothing short of treasonous,” Giuliani wrote late Friday. “Well even very aggressive prosecutors brought no charges of collusion. As a patriot I trust Brennan is relieved. He should apologize for a charge that was damaging to our country. Treason??”

In 2018, Brennan called a press conference that Trump held with Vladimir Putin “nothing short of treasonous,” but later clarified that he didn’t actually believe that Trump had committed treason.

The special counsel’s office said there would be no more indictments following the report on the investigation that has so far charged eight Americans once affiliated with Trump’s campaign or administration, 13 Russian nationals, 12 Russian intelligence officers, three Russian companies, and two other people.
