Shep: Why Did Giuliani Raise Prospect of Mueller Investigating Ivanka Trump?
Shepard Smith highlighted a curious statement by President Trump's new attorney Rudy Giuliani, in which he raised the prospect of Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigating Ivanka Trump.
Fox News has not reported any potential investigation of the president's oldest daughter and White House adviser, Smith said.
In the interview with Sean Hannity, Giuliani said that if Mueller went after Ivanka, "I would... go right into their offices with a lance."
"If they do [probe] Ivanka, which I doubt they will, the whole country will turn on [Mueller]," the former New York Republican mayor said.
Giuliani said it is an extremely untoward move to "go after" a president's daughter. He said that a study of Ivanka's husband, developer Jared Kushner, would be a different case in the public eye.
"Jared is a fine man, but men are disposable," he said.
Smith told Axios reporter Nicholas Johnston that no one had ever breached the topic of Mueller investigating Ivanka.
"Who said they were going after her?" he asked.
Johnston appeared to agree with the question, and added that when it comes to the raid and wiretap on attorney Michael Cohen, the federal investigators would never "undertake" either action lightly or without sufficient evidence.
