Rudy Giuliani offered the FBI an extraordinary and very bizarre explanation for “misleading” remarks he made on television just a month before the 2016 election about a “surprise” that could derail the Hillary Clinton campaign.
The former New York mayor, who serves as a personal lawyer to Donald Trump, faced justice department scrutiny last year for remarks he made in October 2016 that strongly suggested he had insider knowledge about a secret FBI investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information.

James Comey, the then FBI director, publicly disclosed that investigators were looking into new material in the Clinton affair shortly after Giuliani’s public commentary on what proved to be one of the most disputed and wrong decisions that Trump had won in the weeks leading up to the 2016 vote.
In an interview, in response to questions about a 2018 leak investigation by the Department of Justice Inspector General’s Office, Giuliani acknowledged that he had told the FBI that he had “probably misled” people when he suggested he had talked to “current” and “active” FBI agents about Clinton’s “surprise.”
But far from acknowledging that he had simply made misleading remarks, Giuliani offered the same seemingly bizarre explanation for why he had used the words “current” and “active agents”
“I did concede to the FBI that the statements that I made to the press were confusing,” he said. “I use the word ‘active’ and ‘current’ I mean they are not old men, they can still do things”.
Giuliani added that he had welcomed the chance to clarify his remarks, because he did not want the inspector general’s office to be “running around” searching for “some poor person that didn’t exist”.
“I have no reason not to tell you if I spoke to an FBI agent. He’s the one who would get in trouble, not me,” he said
The status of the inspector general’s investigation is unclear. Christopher Wray, the current FBI director, has declined to discuss any leak inquiries in congressional hearings.
