Rudy Giuliani loses his temper on live TV after CNN's Chris Cuomo embarrasses him with fact checks

An exchange between former NYC mayor and current Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and CNN's Chris Cuomo got fiery fast as the host repeatedly fact-checked the attorney on his false claims.

The majority of the pair's disagreements centered on claims Giuliani made about the FBI, which he at one point claimed was "so damned biased" against Donald Trump that it preemptively established protocols that required agents' work phones to be wiped after they cease using them.

The former New York City mayor went on to insist that agent Peter Strzok and Justice Department lawyer Lisa Page -- two figures who previously dated and are at the center of right-wing "Deep State" conspiracy theories due to their disdain for Trump as evidenced via text messages -- testified earlier in the day.

Cuomo noted that neither Strzok nor Page testified on Wednesday -- and the attorney began sputtering as he continued to claim they had.
