President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said during an interview on "Fox & Friends" that special counsel Robert Mueller should end his investigation of the president's Russian ties, and his argument for why Mueller should is questionable.

"If we had anything to do about it, I would ask the special counsel to put out his report and show us what he's got, you know, show your hand," Giuliani said.


When asked if he meant he wanted Mueller to put out his final report, Giuliani replied:

Final! Get it over with. Make your case to the Justice Department that you have to continue to investigate. I think you'll find that there is no reason. Look, think about this: You could investigate an innocent man forever. If you decided he robbed the bank, and he didn't and he proved to you 50 different ways that he didn't do it, you'll look at 51, and then 52, and then 53. Then you try to get somebody who knows him and prosecute the poor person for tax evasion, so they say he robbed the bank. That's what's going on here!

During the same interview, Giuliani justified his that colluding with a foreign government is not a crime.

“I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime,” he said. "Collusion is not a crime. Everything that’s been released so far shows the president to be absolutely innocent. He didn’t do anything wrong.”

The last two tapes, Giuliani added, referring to recordings of conversations between Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen "are evidence in his favor":

This hasn't quite been the case when it's a Republican President occupying the White House.

Far-Right radio host Rush Limbaugh received widespread backlash earlier this month after laughing at the idea of gay South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Presidential contender Pete Buttigieg kissing his husband on a debate stage next to "Mr. Man," President Donald Trump.

Despite the backlash, Limbaugh recently revealed that Trump himself called and told him not to apologize for his words about Buttigieg, leaving some to question whether Trump was sincere when he said recently that he wouldn't have a problem with a gay President.
