A FBI complaint has been filed against Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani over his knowledge about the Russian hacking of Hillary Clinton’s email server.
The complaint was filed by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump on Friday.
DCAT said in a news release, “In July, Giuliani said that Russia has the 33,000 emails deleted from Clinton’s private email server, going on to say that he does “cybersecurity for a living” so it’s a subject he knows according to a Politico article. Giuliani then stated, “The Russians have those emails, they’ve had them for some time.””
“Rudy Giuliani stated that he knew the Russians had hacked into and stole property that belonged to Secretary Clinton, it doesn’t get much more clear-cut than that,” said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Coalition.
“It’s not surprising that someone so close to Trump’s campaign would have knowledge of the attacks perpetrated at the hand of a foreign government.”
Read the complaint filed with the FBI against Giuliani:
“We are requesting that the FBI immediately look into the connection between Rudy Giuliani and the the connection to any possible recent hackings believed to be done by Russian government. In July of this year, Giuliani said that, “the Russians have those emails, they’ve had them for some time,” referring to the emails that were deleted from Clinton’s server. Clearly Rudy Giuliani had some contact with the Russian government, where he would be able to say so confidently that the Russians had the stolen emails.”
Giuliani is under fire for going on Fox News and saying a “pretty big surprise” was coming two days before FBI Director James Comey sent a letter about Hillary Clinton’s emails to Congress.
