Rudy Giuliani Cracks, Confesses After Merciless Interrogation by Steve Doocy

Three days before James Comey made his shocking announcement that new Hillary Clinton emails had been discovered, Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox news and coyly hinted that Donald Trump’s campaign had a special surprise in store. There is strong circumstantial evidence that Giuliani had leaks from a right-wing cabal within the FBI that is trying to help Trump, but such a partisan leak would be a serious breach of FBI policy. Without the power to subpoena Giuliani and his sources, the only way to confirm it would be to somehow goad him into admitting it, like Colonel Nathan Jessup in A Few Good Men.

But Tom Cruise is not walking through that door. No real-life interrogator could pry a confession like that out of an experienced pol like Giuliani, right? Unless you put him on the stand set with … Steve Doocy:

“Did I hear about it?” said Giuliani. “You’re darn right I heard about it, and I can’t even repeat the language that I heard from the former FBI agents.” Apparently Giuliani thought Doocy could handle the truth.
