President Donald Trump's top lawyer Rudy Giuliani said it is "put up or shut up" time for special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's 2016 election meddling and potential Trump campaign coordination.

"They indicted a bunch of Russians who will never come to the United States, which is what we used to call sort of a 'showboat indictment' when I was a U.S. attorney," former New York City Mayor Giuliani told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. "So, I am challenging them: It's time to put up or shut up. It's time for them to submit a report.

"They can do it to the Justice Department. They should allow us to read it, as they promised.

"If I'm wrong, I'll apologize, but I know I am not wrong. They don't have, as we would say in New York, a damn thing."

Giuliani reiterated to host John Catsimatidis "collusion is not a crime" and Mueller has been hunting to try to tie President Trump's campaign to a "conspiracy to hack" the Democratic National Committee's emails.

"It should have been wrapped up probably in May or June – that's when they figured out they had no evidence of collusion, no evidence of conspiracy to hack," Giuliani told Catsimatidis. "Collusion is not a crime, by the way. I don't know why they're investigating it by the way. It's not even a crime.

"You have to show a conspiracy to hack. They don't have any evidence of that – which is the reason they don't submit a report, because they are embarrassed."

More than embarrassment of having spent more than a reported $20 million of American taxpayer dollars, Mueller and those tied to the investigation might be on the hook for some criminal liability.

"Mueller lost [the Peter Strzok and Lisa Page anti-Trump text messages] – the Justice Department said it was a clerical error," Giuliani told Catsimatidis. "Could you imagine if you or I were under investigation and our business records all disappeared by a clerical error? You'd have to come visit me in jail, John.

"What they get away with his outrageous. They go after people on little technicalities. This is a big technicality. And it happens to be a very relevant period. They have wiped out all of the text when Strzok said he was going to prevent Trump from being president or get him removed, and Page, his girlfriend, when they were working for Mueller. I think they should be investigated for that."

There is a double standard for how those from the Obama administration and the incoming Trump administration have been treated by the Justice Department.

". . . It seems to me that they all have immunity. If they are on Hillary's side and they are Democrats, they don't get pursued in the same way that [Trumps people] get pursued."

The Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz's investigation FISA court warrant abuse is "doing a good job," but it will not come in time to help those entangled in the Mueller witch hunt, according to Giuliani.

"We need these answers right now to show that this is illegitimate. He's doing a good job, by in large, but he's taking a long time to do it."
