Giuliani: John Brennan Led the Effort to Start Trump-Russia Investigation
'He should be in front of a grand jury.'
Rudy Giuliani accused former CIA Director John Brennan of leading a coalition of government officials in an effort to take down President Trump during the 2016 campaign.
Giuliani, who serves as Trump's private attorney, told Sean Hannity Monday that he was pleased to see FBI Agent Peter Strzok fired by Deputy FBI Director David Bowdich.

He said Strzok played a "much bigger role in [the bureaucratic opposition to Trump] than much of the media wants to admit."
Giuliani said Strzok and even Special Counsel Robert Mueller are "puppets" of the cause to undermine Trump.
Giuliani singled out Brennan for giving the unverified and salacious Trump-Russia dossier to then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
He added that the dossier was compiled by "a down-and-out ex-English spy (Christopher Steele) who hated Trump."
Reid's receipt of the document helped kick off the formal investigation into Trump, Giuliani alleged.
