The video of a meeting between President Trump and a former campaign staff member who was the subject of a dismissed lawsuit shows that people feel emboldened to file a complaint, according to Rudy Giuliani.
Many of these people often fail to apologize for the spread of complaints of any kind against President Giuliani, the president's attorney, said Thursday in "Hannity."
"Fortunately, we have the images, because some people would like to believe it," said the former mayor of New York City, referring to a video broadcast this week during the meeting between Trump and Alva Johnson . "I think it's because a lot of media have created this hysteria about the president."
THE JUDGE DISMISSES THE MINUTES OF A FORMER CAMPAIGN STAFF WHO ACCUSED THE TRUMP OF FORCED LEAVE
Judge William Jung of the Middle District of Florida rejected Johnson's lawsuit in June, but the video of the kiss was made public by Trump's lawyers on Wednesday.
Giuliani said that he thought the case was revealing the spread of unfounded complaints against the president.
"All of Mueller's investigation was infused with that. (…) They printed the wildest and craziest lies, and of course they never excused themselves", a- he affirmed. "People feel able to say what they want."
According to Politico, Jung rejected Johnson's complaint last month and said in his 15-page order that "the complaint is a political trial, not a tort and salary trial".

Jung added, "If the plaintiff wishes to make a political statement or make a claim for political purposes, it is not the forum."
Johnson was director of outreach and coalitions for the Alabama GOP Group's primary in 2016, then did similar work in Florida.
The former employee told MSNBC in February that "in August 2016, she had briefly chatted with Trump in a motorhome during a Florida campaign stage. Before getting off the vehicle to talk with the campaign trainees, she told him to "kick" and said she had not seen her family for a very long time. Johnson said Trump was holding his hand and was getting closer.
"This accusation is absurd at first sight. This has never happened and is directly contradicted by many highly credible eyewitness accounts, "said Sarah Sanders, press secretary at the White House in February.
