  Giuliani: Trump fired Comey because he wouldn't tell Trump he wasn't target in Russia probe Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said Wednesday that President Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey because Comey wouldn't tell Trump that he wasn't a target of the FBI investigation into Russia's election interference.

Rudy Giuliani in a new interview said the investigation into Russia's election meddling will prompt President Trump's voters to turn out in the upcoming midterm elections.

"It has his people much more excited now than before," Giuliani, who recently joined Trump's legal team, told Politico.

Giuliani added Democrats have "backed off" a midterm campaign push that emphasizes possible impeaching the president.

"I don't think anywhere near a majority of the American people want to see an impeachment interrupt the good work the president is doing," he told the news outlet.

Giuliani made waves last week when he told Fox News's Sean Hannity that Trump reimbursed his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, for a payment he made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

The former New York City mayor took part in a media blitz after the initial interview, seeking to mitigate the fallout. He has argued the payment was for personal reasons to shield the Trump family from embarrassment.

Giuliani said in a Sunday show interview that while he does not know of Cohen making any additional payments to other women, he believes Trump's personal lawyer would have so if it was "necessary."

Never-ending Russia probe could fuel GOP's midterm message .
As Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe hits the one-year mark Thursday, Republicans in midterm elections have started to see an opportunity to use the Trump controversy to their advantage – by appealing to voters tired of the never-ending investigation. Candidates in some GOP primaries this year already have worked to woo Trump supporters by arguing it’s time to end the Russia probe. Other Republicans are likely to follow suit amid a sense of Mueller investigation fatigue.
