Skip to comments.Giuliani: Comey could be prosecuted based on IG report
Posted on 06/10/2018 9:52:51 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
President Trumps lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday that he thinks former FBI Director James Comey could be prosecuted as a result of a report from the Justice Departments (DOJ) internal watchdog that is expected to be released next week.
"I think the report of Horowitz, the [inspector general], and the Justice Department will confirm that Comey acted improperly with with regard to the Hillary Clinton investigation," Giuliani said an interview with radio host John Catsimatidis.
The first thing we are going to get is a report from Inspector General Horowitz on Comeys handling of Hillary, which I think is going to be very very critical of Comey, as it should be, Giuliani continued. "Comey, really, has a chance of being prosecuted as a result of, but well see."
In a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on Thursday, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz said that he planned to release a report about the FBI's probe into former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's emails during the 2016 election on June 14.

Not so fast,Rudy...we don’t know yet how much input Swamp Creatures have had in the final report.
Shut up Rudy
Prejudicing a jury claims?
Someone muzzle him
Silence and stealth vs FBI - please
Less Yappin’ and more Slappin’...on the cuffs!
Rudy, go sit in the corner would you please?
The past practice has been that IG reports refer serious law-breaking to prosecutors while the investigation is underway, as violations are uncovered. They do not wait until the report is finished and published. That’s been the practice, and seems like the proper thing to do.
“Prejudicing a jury claims?”
Rudy is a private lawyer with no official position in government.
That claim would go nowhere.
Lawyers do that ALL THE TIME on TV. Just look at Stormy’s lawyer.
Can he still be prosecuted?
“Can he still be prosecuted?”
Mueller’s scope has nothing to do with the Clinton mail crimes.
Correct. McCabe was recommended for indictment. I don’t know how long it takes from the IG recommendation, to a actual indictment.
I don’t see how Comey could be in trouble, but not Lynch. She should be at least as much trouble as he is.
In before the trust Sessions and Gowdy and kissing deep state a$s.
He is Trumps lawyer
Muellers scope has nothing to do with the Clinton mail crimes.
I hope you're right! Need to jail this dirty Cop!
Exactly right and this is why Comey has been so anti-Trump. He can play any potential prosecution for his crimes as a political witch hunt.
Comey's "extremely careless" is prejudicing the whole world.
What IG report?
Sure he could, but Coney by himself is not the end game. Squeeze him like a zit until he pops.
Action was already taken against Comey and McCabe. More action seems highly unlikely based on the release of the IG report.
Note that a lot of Clinton-related stuff took place under FBI Deputy Director Mark Giuliano. We’ll see if the IG report implicates him.
And I could be Paul McCartney. No Democrat will go to jail, not now, not ever.
