Rudy Giuliani: Trey Gowdy 'Drinking the Kool-Aid' Defending Campaign Spying

Gowdy's statement was made after he was asked if Trump may have obstructed justice when he asked Sessions in March 2017 to reverse the decision that recused him from the Russian Federation probe, as reported by The New York Times.

Giuliani has gained attention in recent weeks for contradicting President Trump over his knowledge of a $130,000 payment made to adult actress Stormy Daniels in October 2016 through attorney Michael Cohen. "I wish I did", the president tweeted after quoting Rep. Gowdy's criticism.

Trump has often railed against Sessions' recusal from the case, voicing frustration that it has left him without someone he feels should be loyal to him at the country's top law enforcement agency to protect him from the year-long probe headed by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Gowdy said Sessions should have told Trump before accepting the job that he had a conflict of interest and would need to recuse himself from such investigations.

President Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, fancies himself a tough guy, as evidenced by a phone call he had with journalist Tim Mak, which was filled with threats, expletives, and falsehoods.

"'Unrecuse' doesn't say, "Bury the investigation", Giuliani to the Times".

"So how do you like the fact that they had people infiltrate our campaign? And they don't leave because at their core, they actually agree with a lot of the things Donald Trump is doing, even if they don't like him as a person".

On Fox News on Tuesday, Gowdy, who is due to retire, said the intelligence service's decision was justified, and defended it against the furious attacks from Trump about the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DoJ's political neutrality. "He was never the target, Russian Federation was the target", Gowdy said.

In his Wednesday interview with CBS, Gowdy again said the FBI acted properly in its investigation.

"I have always said, 'I think you ought to sit down. you've told us publicly there was no collusion, there was no obstruction, ' " Gowdy said.

Despite the president's tweets, some political analysts doubt he would fire Sessions.

Trump and Giuliani tried to label that informant a spy and invented the term "spygate" in hopes of discrediting Mueller's investigation, but those efforts appear not to have caught on. "The folks who have not seen the information, I don't know what informs their perspective".

"And I wish I did!"
