More on Dems and NATO timing: “There was no crime whatsoever and they know it.” “Now they’re saying: ‘How do we get over this?’”
“To do it on a day like this where we’re in England and some of the most powerful countries in the world having very important NATO meetings. And it just happened to be scheduled on this day. It’s really honestly, it’s a disgrace.”
More on Rudy:
“Rudy is a great gentleman and they’re after him only because he’s done such a good job. He was very effective against Mueller and the Mueller Hoax.”
