While Democrats and leftist prosecutors have put former President Donald Trump and his backers on defense, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told Newsmax on Saturday his legal defense fund will be put to work to go on offense against weaponized justice.
“I’ve had to do things here in these cases, and sometimes I wouldn’t do, because we didn’t have the money to do it.”
Prosecutors have the unlimited resources of taxpayer dollars and even Wall Street millions seeking to defeat Trump and keep him from returning to the White House, Giuliani warned to host Rita Cosby, saying the offense and defense can stop the election interference “if we had the proper amount of money like they have.”
“You know where the money’s coming from,” Giuliani said. “It’s coming from the people who want to destroy our country. This is not a battle just about – as Donald Trump has said – Donald Trump or Rudy Giuliani or Peter Navarro.
“This is probably the worst political witch hunt – I don’t think we’ve ever had anything like this in history.”
Giuliani’s comments come as former White House senior adviser Peter Navarro has been convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to respond to a House Jan. 6 select committee subpoena. Navarro is planning an appeal.
“Rita, I happened to have been with the former president when we found out about the verdict of our friend Peter,” Giuliani said. “This is horrible. I don’t know how to describe it to my fellow Americans, except trust me, gosh almighty, I served the law all my life, and except for now with these fascists, I’v never had a single complaint about anything I ever did.”
Navarro does not deserve the political persecution at the hand of President Joe Biden’s Justice Department, according to Giuliani.
“Pete Navarro is about as honest a man as you’re going to meet,” Giuliani said. “I don’t think there’s a person in the Biden administration that could wipe his shoes.”
Giuliani denounced the politicized justice under Biden and former President Barack Obama, whose administration was trafficking guns under former Attorney General Eric Holder, who refused to testify before Congress.
“He wouldn’t testify, and they didn’t hold him in contempt for one minute,” Giuliani said.
The weaponization of justice against good man like Navarro is akin to a third-world country or a dictatorship, Giuliani continued.
“To do this to this man is an act of complete – it’s not an act of political anything – it’s an act of fascism,” he said. “This is what a fascist government does. This is what a communist government does. This is what a government under Stalin or Hitler or Mao does.”
Navarro was claiming executive privilege under Trump and has been fighting against the subpoena to protect the authority of the U.S. president against a politicized Congress and Justice Department, Giuliani warned.
“This is not a criminal case,” he said of Navarro’s case. “This is a dispute that should be decided by a court. The court will say, ‘no privilege, privilege; you have the documents, you don’t have the documents.’
“We have done that 1,000 times in our history, when we didn’t have maniacs and communists and dictators and people of unsound mind in the White House.”
Democrats and Biden’s henchmen are going after their political rivals from the top down, according to Giuliani.
“I don’t know when this ends because there are hundreds of these cases,” he added. “They focus on me. They focus on Donald Trump. They focused on Peter because we were high-level people.”
As for his own defense, Giuliani is among those accused by Fulton Country District Attorney Fani Willis of having sought to challenge the 2020 presidential election in Georgia.
“The case should be thrown out because it’s been infected by this grand jury,” Giuliani said of the initial special grand jury that heard Willis’ case and took testimony from many of those ultimately indicted in the racketeering case. “You know the fruit of the poison tree doctrine? It’s very old one, ancient one, coming from a liberal court.
“The case should be thrown out because this is a completely infected case.”
