Giuliani: Hillary Clinton Was Wrong to Attack Bill's Victims; "I've Prosecuted People Who Have Committed Rape"

|

Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani pushes back against 'Meet The Press' host Chuck Todd about whether he is the right person to point out Hillary Clinton's history of attacking women who accused her husband of rape and sexual assault.

"Are you the right person to level this charge?" Todd wondered. "You have your own infidelities, sir."

"Yeah. I'm the right person to level this charge," Giuliani said. "I'm a Roman Catholic, and I confess those things to my priest. But I've never made such a charge, and I've prosecuted people who've committed rape."

"Not only that, I've put people in jail who've [committed] sexual abuse," he said.

"I think your bringing up my personal life really is kind of irrelevant to what Hillary Clinton did. She's running for president, I'm not. A woman who pretends to be a feminist shouldn't be taking money from countries where women are stoned, where women are killed for adultery, where women can't drive, she's taken hundreds of millions of dollars from those countries," he added.

CHUCK TODD: Before I let you go, what did you mean when you talked about Monica Lewinsky and Hillary Clinton that if she didn't know what Bill Clinton was doing, she's too stupid to be president?

RUDY GIULIANI: What I meant was, after the long, long history of Bill Clinton, Gennifer Flowers, Juanita Broaddrick, I don't know, 27 people making claims against him, including a settlement with one of them were it was obviously true, when she first heard about Monica Lewinksy, to pretend for five or six months that it was false--

CHUCK TODD: So she was wrong to stand by her husband?

RUDY GIULIANI: No, she was wrong to attack the victim. The woman who says--

CHUCK TODD: Are you the right person to level this charge?

RUDY GIULIANI: Yeah. I'm the right person to level this charge, because I've never made such a charge, and I've prosecuted people who've committed rape.

CHUCK TODD: But your past, you have your own infidelities, sir.

RUDY GIULIANI: Well, everybody does. And I'm a Roman Catholic, and I confess those things to my priest. But I've never-- I've never ever attacked someone who's been the victim--

CHUCK TODD: Okay.

RUDY GIULIANI: --who's been the victim of sexual abuse. Not only that, I've put people in jail who've been the victim of sexual abuse.

CHUCK TODD: Well, all right. Well--

RUDY GIULIANI: And I've never participated in that. And I think your bringing up my personal life really is kind of irrelevant to what Hillary Clinton did. She's running for president, I'm not.
