President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani slammed John Bolton in a new interview, describing him as a “backstabber” and rejecting claims about the commander-in-chief allegedly made by the former national security adviser in his tell-all book.
“[Bolton] never said to me, ‘I’ve got a problem with what you are doing in Ukraine,’” Giuliani told CBS News in an interview airing Wednesday, “ever once, never winked, never sent me a little note. He is a personal friend, I thought.”
“So here’s the only conclusion I can come to, and it’s a harsh one, and I feel very bad about it: He’s a backstabber.”
Giuliani, who finds himself a key player in the Ukraine scandal at the heart of Trump’s impeachment, continued to unload on the man he referred to as a “friend.”
“If your friend was complaining about you behind your back and didn’t have the guts to come up to your face and tell you, ‘I think you’re screwing up’ … that’d be a backstabber. That’s classic backstabber. So I feel I got a swamp character here,” the former New York City mayor griped.
