Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani thinks James Comey will have plenty of time in federal prison to write about all the crimes he allegedly committed while trying to take down President Trump.
The attorney for the president spoke with Fox News host Laura Ingraham Wednesday about the former FBI Director and the part he played in the “conspiracy to frame” Trump.

“The reality is that Comey’s conduct was outrageous for a prosecutor,” Giuliani said on “The Ingraham Angle” as he discussed the imminent release of a report on the fired FBI chief by Justice Department Inspector General Horowitz.
“That man lied. Straight out lied,” he said, noting Comey’s role in the using the discredited Steele dossier as part of an FBI application for a warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. “No way he didn’t know the Steele dossier was a big phony piece of junk. You read the first three pages if you’re a professional and this is like “National Enquirer.”
**Update: Since the airing of this segment and writing of this article, the I.G. report was released condemning Comey for nefarious actions as former FBI director.
As widely expected, Comey will not be prosecuted on the leaks mentioned in the IG report, as damning as it is.
But many following the story, including Giuliani, believe that’s not the scandal that will ultimately bring Comey to justice.

The inspector general report may also focus on Comey’s leaking of memos in which he detailed interactions with Trump before he was fired in 2017.
“He wanted it to be true,” Ingraham interjected. “And that’s why he went and briefed the president on it – spook the president, ultimately leak it out.”
“But four months later when he knows it’s not true, he goes and tells it to the president like it’s real. That’s pure J. Edgar Hoover: Man, I’ve got something on you,” Giuliani said as Ingraham asked if there was a crime or just a “series of unethical acts.”
“How about a simple one?” the former prosecutor asked.”The signature on the FISA affidavit is a crime.”
“How was it a crime?” Ingraham asked.
“It’s a crime because it’s a false statement under oath. He signed under penalty of perjury,” Giuliani replied.
Ingraham questioned the leak of the document, saying “he writes memos and then gives it to his pal… The New York Times.”
“The leaking can be more unethical than illegal. I think however there was a conspiracy to frame him. Trump. I think this was a conspiracy to frame Trump… This is a counter-intelligence conspiracy,” Giuliani contended, saying he could not name the players involved.
“I can’t name them yet because they are unidentified but this is a counterintelligence conspiracy,” he said.
“Comey could know about it, Comey could be part of it, Comey could be a player in it but somebody else is the brainchild of this,” he posited.
“Comey played his part as a liar to the court. It’s no confusion about a crime. There’s nothing clearer than you are swearing under penalties of perjury, name – James Comey, paragraph such-and-such, a total lie. Go to jail,” Giuliani said.
Fox News host Sean Hannity suggested during his show Wednesday that Comey “should be sweating a lot tonight about what might be in those reports.”
“It’s not looking good for, well, Mr. Super Patriot, the guy that knows better than us,” Hannity said.

Ingraham noted a tweet by the fired FBI chief saying he was “tired of being a Trump critic” and how a friend told him to keep speaking out against “wrong or inequality or injustice.”
Tonight, I told a former colleague that I’m tired of being a Trump critic. He responded with encouraging words that apply to all of us: “Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country.” He’s right. Keep speaking out.

“He is right, keep speaking out,” Ingraham said.
“James Cardinal Comey,” Giuliani quipped.
“What a phony. And what a total phony,” he added.
“He will have plenty of opportunities, three-four years of federal prison writing about all this and then we can read about,” he said. “You don’t get to commit perjury and get away with it. Not if you put people in jail for it.”
