America’s mayor isn’t taking defeat lying down.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani urged President Trump to add a declassification spree to his checklist of final things to do while in office.
With less than two weeks before Inauguration Day, when it is expected Joe Biden will become president, Giulani, who serves as the president’s personal lawyer, said that time for “harmony” is over.
“At many times, I thought he was ready to do it, and many times it was blocked by, I have to assume, the force that we now call the ‘deep state.’ I have my suspicions where. Now there is no longer any reason to try to create some kind of harmony, and therefore, not do it,” Giuliani told former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on his Friday War Room podcast.
“I think he owes it, not just to MAGA, he owes it to the American people to put it out,” the former mayor added.
Touching on subjects such as the Ukraine phone call and subsequent impeachment fiasco, the Hunter Biden laptop scandal, and the Russia collusion probe, Giuliani, who has led President Trump’s effort to overturn the results of voter fraud in the 2020 election, said there is no reason not to perform large-scale declassifications.
“I don’t know the information, and I’ve never seen any of the classified information, but I know everything that surrounds it. And having dealt with classified information for 17 years, I can pretty much read what’s been blocked out. I think I pretty much know what’s in there. And so far, there has been a lot of declassifications, and not a single piece of national security information has been contained in it,” Giuliani continued, adding:
What it contains is embarrassing information that will demonstrate that the prior administration engaged in, again I say, fascist tactics in order to prevent Trump from being president. And then in order to remove the rightfully elected president of the United States by clearly unlawful means. That’s what’s there.
