Donald Trump’s longtime sideman Rudy Giuliani has suggested that if the American public couldn’t see that the raid on Mar-a-Lago was the latest chapter of a left-wing “conspiracy” to destroy Trump then the U.S. is “too dumb to be a democracy.”
Giuliani’s comments came during an interview with conservative channel Newsmax, where the disgraced former mayor gave a wide-ranging critique of the branches of government, starting with the FBI search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and the removal of classified material from the property.
Giuliani also invoked the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election to claim that he and Trump are the only ones telling the truth.
“Who ended up telling the truth about Russian collusion? Them or Trump and me,” he said, before declaring that if people don’t believe him and Trump, then the U.S. shouldn’t be a democracy.
He added: “If the American people don’t know what’s going on by now, then our country could possibly be too dumb to be a democracy, Giuliani said. “I mean, it is quite obvious that they will frame him with every single thing they’ve got.”
