Giuliani on hazards of Trump interview: 'Truth isn't truth'

20 August 2018

The remarks by Giuliani are not the first by by Trump confidantes to dispute the meaning of "truth" and "facts".

Todd responded, "Truth is truth". "I mean, I didn't leak it to The Times and Jay Sekulow didn't leak it to The Times, the president sure as heck didn't, so who could it be?"

He told the Washington Post in May that Mr Mueller and his team "may have a different version of the truth than we do".

"Truth is truth", Todd pointed out. "So tell me what the truth is", Giuliani said.

The rationale used by Trump and now by Giuliani contradicts a statement the president helped craft in 2017, which said the meeting with lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya had been arranged to discuss USA policies for adopting Russian children.

"The meeting was originally for the goal of getting information about Clinton", he said, adding that the Trump team did not know that Natalia Veselnitskaya was Russian - even though emails later released by Mr Trump Jr showed that she had been described as a "Russian government attorney".

Todd said this was going to become a "bad meme".

"Don't do "truth isn't truth" to me", Todd continued.

I have zero faith that Trump will ever experience anything like "justice" for his obvious many corrupt acts because, particularly as president, he is outside the ability of the justice system to hold him into account. "Not even close", Cuomo said of Trump.

Mr Trump, in a series of angry tweets, denounced a New York Times story that his White House counsel, Don McGahn, has been cooperating extensively with the special counsel team investigating Russian election meddling and potential collusion with Mr Trump's Republican campaign.

"We get very nervous that they're trying to trap him into perjury, which is not supposed to be what they're doing", he said on Sunday Morning Futures. Maybe you know because you're a genius.

On Sunday, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey took to Twitter to stress truth "matters". "Truth has always been the touchstone of our country's justice system and political life". "If we are untethered to truth, our justice system can not function and a society based on the rule of law dissolves", Comey tweeted.

Trump, who has long attacked media with whom he disagrees as "fake news", has recently taken to describing journalists as the "enemy of the people".

Giuliani, speaking on Fox News, repeated his concern about investigators' potential approach to a Trump interview.

"The meeting was originally for the objective of getting information about, about Clinton", Giuliani said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press".
