Rudy Giuliani: It Looks Like FBI's Only Reason For Investigating Clinton Emails Is To Hand Out Immunity Deals


On Saturday's 'Fox & Friends,' former NYC mayor and U.S. attorney Rudy Giuliani comments on Friday's document dump of even more Clinton emails. Also on Friday, Hillary Clinton's former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, and two other members of her staff were granted immunity deals in exchange for their cooperation in the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state

"The thing about yesterday's revelation that really shocked me was... it looks like the FBI is conducting this investigation for the purpose of giving immunity," Giuliani said.

"Rhe FBI can not grant immunity, they have to get approval from the Justice Department. So, the Justice Department, run by Loretta Lynch, who was sitting on the airplane with Bill Clinton, was the one who approved those immunities," he explained.

"The whole point of an investigation is to investigate to see if a crime was committed. Maybe you give one of the [suspects] immunity, if it was. The other people, you have them plead guilty, and then you prosecute the case against the main culprit -- in this case Mrs. Clinton."

"I found the first Comey report impossible to understand," he said about the FBI Director's report on Clinton's emails. "He laid out a perfect case of intent. First of all: A clear case of negligent use of material, which is a flat out violation. A felony. But here is how we prove intent: False statements, destruction of evidence. You don't prove intent reading your head, we look at your actions."

"A false exculpatory statement is evidence of guilt," he concluded. "Destruction of evidence is evidence of guilt. It is just common sense. Those both happened en masse."

"I don't understand how, after reading [Comey's] report, and now watching these Friday afternoon political hack putting out of information. It is disgraceful. To give immunity to so many people... The violations here were so many, so often, so gross. I don't know if we'll ever get another case like this."

"One of the things he said during his news conference to justify himself was: We've never had a case like this. He's right! We've never had a case of this kind of massive exposure of top secret and confidential information to our enemies, during a period of time when we know they're hacking left and right."
