When ‘truth isn’t truth’: 8 weird Rudy Giuliani moments

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's attorney, said that members of Trump's campaign had no reason to believe a key participant in the controversial Trump Tower meeting was working on behalf of the Russian government. On Monday, he tried to clean it up.

"My statement was not meant as a pontification on moral theology but one referring to the situation where two people make precisely contradictory statements, the classic "he said, she said" puzzle", Giuliani tweeted this morning.

"No, no, it isn't truth", Giuliani said.

But in doing so, Giuliani created more confusion.

"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". "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.

"Don't do this to you?" said Oliver after playing the clip.

Todd responded, "Truth is truth". Rob Goldstone, who arranged the meeting, emailed Don Jr beforehand to pitch him on it and explicitly said that the dirt on Clinton was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

"I'm not going to be rushed into having him testify so that he gets trapped into perjury", Giuliani said on "Meet the Press". You might even say something entirely truthful that ends up inadvertently incriminating you because it happens to support a suspicion the police have independently formed.

"Mr. Mayor, do you realize. this is going to become a bad meme", Todd interrupted.

"Truth isn't truth. The President of the United States says, "I didn't ..." Preet Bharara, a Democrat who was sacked as federal prosecutor by the Trump administration, suggested "truth isn't truth" would not sound convincing in a trial.

Trump has said he is willing to talk to Mueller, but his current legal team, headed by Giuliani, has yet to arrange such a meeting, insisting that certain topics remain off-limits.
