Rudy Giuliani on Russia probe: "Truth isn’t truth"

On Sunday, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani appeared on MSNBC with Chuck Todd and said that "truth isn't truth". The former New York City major insisted he would not be "rushed" into making his client available for something that could become a chargeable offense under the law.

"When you tell me that, you know, he should testify because he's going to tell the truth and he shouldn't worry, well, that's so silly because it's somebody's version of the truth". He dismissed the idea of Trump having any foreknowledge about Russia's efforts, or potentially obstructing the subsequent inquiry. "To undermine democrats on the hill, the Mueller investigation, the undermining of the press is part of that ... so that when the special report comes out they can claim 'I know the truth none of these institutions do, '" Cook pointed out. You're left to wonder, is Giuliani afraid that Mueller has trouble distinguishing the truth from "the truth" or is he afraid that Trump does?

"What is Giuliani doing and why does the White House keep letting him go on TV?"

Quipped Oliver: "You just said 'truth isn't truth!' That is not acceptable from a president's lawyer".

"I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime", Giuliani said in an interview on Fox News". "If someone said, I have information about your opponent, you would take that meeting".

The Queen Of Soul Aretha Franklin Has Passed Away At 76
The 60 Minutes segment also features producer Jerry Wexler talking about why he calls Franklin the "Lady of Mysterious Sorrows". A date for the funeral at the church has not yet been given, and it's not known yet if it will be open to the public.

Trump says he allowed McGahn and others to testify.

"Truth is truth", Todd interjected.

Officially, the White House said former FBI director James Comey was sacked because of his handling of the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. It wasn't until after the meeting was set up that Trump Jr.'s contact said he would send the names of the people who would be attending on Russia's behalf.

In January past year Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told Todd's programme, Meet the Press, that the White House was entitled to present "alternative facts". The longtime Trump consigliere exclaimed, "Truth isn't truth!"
