Fox News Host Explodes on Rudy Giuliani in Heated Interview

Attorney General William Barr revealed that his office would not pursue obstruction of justice charges against Trump, in part because Mueller had determined that the president had not committed any underlying crime to be covered up. On his show Sunday, Wallace challenged Giuliani on this.
“Mueller says the injury to the justice system is just as great; it doesn’t matter if there was an underlying crime, it’s still obstruction,” Wallace pointed out in his Fox News Sunday interview with Giuliani.
The president’s personal lawyer, who formerly served as the mayor of New York City, asked, “Well, when did Mueller become God?”
“There was no injury, by the way,” Giuliani asserted. “We’re talking about something that didn’t happen. There was no obstruction.” The former federal prosecutor then tried to turn the criticism to Clinton, pointing to allegations that during her tenure as secretary of state she had obstructed justice by deleting emails and destroying cellphones when she was investigated by the FBI.
