Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani slammed former FBI Director James Comey over his handling of the unverified dossier, which was used in FISA applications targeting former Trump campaign associate Carter Page, compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele.

“How come it was unverified for five months when he was FBI director? Hey jackass, you had five months," Giuliani said in a lengthy radio interview with Howie Carr on Tuesday.

The dossier was used in Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act filings beginning in October 2016 through June 2017, and Comey signed off on three of the four submissions to the Foreign Surveillance Court before he was fired in May 2017. Comey personally briefed Trump on some of the most salacious allegations in January 2017.
