Rudy Giuliani gets facts wrong about Trump Tower meeting

"What am I supposed to say?"

"I guess Jared is a fine man, you know that", Giuliani said.

"No, no, no ... don't do this to me", said Giuliani, putting his hand to his head. Comey says you did talk about it.

The exchange on Meet the Press on Sunday began with Mr Todd asking Mr Giuliani whether the Trump team was stalling about a possible testimony at the inquiry led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into alleged meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 U.S. election. "Maybe you know because you're a genius". "The meeting was meant to get dirt on Hillary Clinton from a criminal lawyer", Todd insisted. On July 30, Giuliani, in a defence since adopted by Trump, said that even if collusion occurred, it wouldn't be a crime. So he fired him and he said, 'I'm free of this guy'.

Dean was White House counsel for President Richard Nixon during Watergate.

The most high profile of these episodes came on May 3, when he claimed that Kim Jong-un would be releasing three American prisoners held in North Korea that day.

Rudolph Guiliani dove back into the Truth quagmire today, explaining that when he said yesterday on Meet the Press that "truth isn't truth", he was not indulging in some moral theology pontification (his words).

'I am not going to be rushed into having him testify so that he gets trapped into perjury, ' Giuliani said.

"Truth is truth", Chuck Todd, anchor of NBC's Meet the Press replied.

CNN says that Trump's legal team is opposed to the idea of Trump testifying before the Mueller probe because they believe "the special counsel's investigators could take what Trump says, if it differs from what others have laid out, as a lie".

In fact, in context, the most absurd position Rudy's taken lately isn't that "truth isn't truth" but that he and Trump are happy to chat with Mueller about collusion (just not obstruction of justice).

"The president of the United States wasn't at that meeting, he didn't know about that meeting, he found out about it after".

"No, no, no", Giuliani said.

The comments by the former New York City mayor and Trump attorney caused host Chuck Todd to put his hand on his head and warn that the phrase would become a "bad meme".
