Giuliani says Trump fired Comey because he wouldn't assure him FBI was not targeting him in Russia probeFormer New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says that President Donald Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey in part because he would not tell him that the president was not personally a target in the intelligence agency’s probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Mr Giuliani, who is a recent addition to Mr Trump’s legal team charged with helping deal with special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, made the comment during an appearance on Fox News. “He fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn’t a target of the investigation,” Mr Giuliani told the cable network’s Sean Hannity, who has himself been a vocal supporter of Mr Trump.
