The Hill reports:
Rudy Giuliani called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to intervene in the Michael Cohen case and put the people behind the probe “under investigation” in a phone call with The Hill on Thursday. “I am waiting for the Attorney General to step in, in his role as defender of justice, and put these people under investigation,” Giuliani said, reacting to an NBC News report that phones belonging to Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal attorney, had been tapped by investigators.
It is extraordinary, by any measure, for a member of the president’s personal legal team to suggest that the attorney general should intervene in an investigation that affects the president. But Giuliani said that a wiretapping of Cohen would amount to “gross misconduct” by the government. He further alleged that “this case has been surrounded by numerous acts” that fit that description. Giuliani added sarcastically, “And they don’t even notify us? I mean, he’s only the president of the United States.”
