One of the most disturbing text messages sent between disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, mentioned an “insurance policy” that would take hold if Trump were to somehow win the 2016 election. And now Rudy Giuliani, who is serving as the president’s chief legal counsel, says he believes that he knows exactly what that text was referring to.
“All those texts from Strzok and Page — deleted?” Giuliani said in an interview with Fox News on Sunday. “After they find out that Strzok is texting that he hates Trump, that he’s going to get him and stop him — and that if he can’t stop him, he has an ‘insurance policy’ to get him out of office. I believe Mueller is the insurance policy to get him out of office. I’m not just saying that — Strzok was his first investigator.”
Giuliani said that he has suspicions about the DOJ IG report that concludes the text messages were the victim of a site-wide technical glitch. He believes that someone, upon discovering the content of the messages, took it upon themselves to illegally and unethically wipe Strzok and Page’s phones so that their anti-Trump bias would never see the light of day.
“The person who determined what to eliminate was Mueller’s records officer, who says there was nothing of interest there,” Giuliani said. “It’s hard to believe Strzok and Page suddenly decided, ‘We’re not going to text anymore about Donald Trump.’ They seemed to be obsessively and compulsively texting about him. I don’t know what kind of lovers they were if they were texting about that all the time. It’s ridiculous.”
Giuliani was asked if he expects Mueller’s report to be out soon; he said he wasn’t holding his breath.
“Oh gosh, almighty — first he was coming out in March, then in May — we’re now in fourth degree of separation from the non-crime of collusion,” Giuliani said. “We went to the non-crime of obstruction of justice, that didn’t work out for them. Then he moved on to campaign contributions, which by the way are not violative of the campaign finance law. And then they’re looking at now the Russia tower. They should go to Moscow. There is no tower. It didn’t get built. It didn’t get beyond a nonbinding letter of intent, which is like a wish.
“My ultimatum is ‘put up or shut up, Bob,’” Giuliani continued, addressing Mueller directly. “I mean, what do you have? There are those who believe you don’t have anything on collusion. And, by the way, even if you did it’s not a crime – so what the heck are you doing? Do you have anything that shows the President of the United States was involved in a conspiracy to hack the DNC with Russia? Of course you don’t. If you do, put out a report, or give it to the Justice Department, let them review it, make sure it’s not classified or whatever, put out a report. We’re ready to rebut it. I’ve had the report ready for two months.”
