Fox News anchor Chris Wallace and President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani battled it out Sunday over Trump's claim that there is now proof he did not obstruct justice, according to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

As Newsweek reports, Giuliani went on the show to discuss Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report. The host and the guest got into a heated exchange about potential obstruction of justice by the president. Mueller did not charge Trump with the crime, but he did not exonerate him of it either. 

The exchange between Giuliani and Wallace became so heated at one point that it actually devolved into the familiar school yard taunts of "Well, who made you God?"

Here, take a gander for yourself:

WIBC host Tony Katz:

"There is an important part to the conversations that Giuliani had this weekend on Fox News and other networks, which is that Robert Mueller did indeed leave the 'obstruction issue' to Congress - not even necessarily to figure out, rather as a tool to go after the President.

I'm no fan of Robert Mueller. If he wanted to say there was 'no obstruction' he could have said it. When people point out that he left that open to interpretation, however, people ask, 'Well, why didn't he leave collusion open for interpretation?' Because there was no collusion. He made it clear, and they should have made it clear that there was no obstruction - unless he and the Democrats wanted to continue to make the President's life a living hell, which is a real possibility."
