Here’s How Rudy Giuliani Explains His 'Truth Isn't Truth' Comment

Rudy Giuliani on Russia probe:

Donald Trump's lawyer has claimed that "truth isn't truth", during an interview about when the USA president would speak with special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating Russia's involvement in the 2016 election.

Instead, Giuliani said he was "referring to the situation where two people make precisely contradictory statements, the classic "he said, she said" puzzle".

"I think the strategy has been to undermine institutions", Cook said.

It was Giuliani's practical deployment of the idea that truth is subjective, though, that was probably more meaningful.

"Not the truth", Giuliani told NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday morning during "Meet the Press".

No one says it quite like Rudy Giuliani.

"Truth is truth", Todd interjected. Todd burst out laughing, pointing out that the sentiment is destined to become a meme of the kind that adorns placards at anti-Trump rallies.

"No, no, no ... don't do this to me", said Giuliani, putting his hand to his head.

Giuliani had told "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd that Trump might "get trapped into perjury" if he were interviewed by the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation. Comey says: You did talk about it.

"He fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn't a target of the investigation", Giuliani told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "And when you tell me he should testify because he's going to tell the truth - that he shouldn't worry - that's so silly because it's somebody's version of the truth, not the truth". But around the time of the meeting - and contrary to Giuliani's claim - she entered the Trump orbit based on a promise that she was acting as a Russian government agent who could bruise the Clinton campaign.

"Truth isn't truth", Giuliani, now part of President Trump's external legal team, told host Chuck Todd. Truth has always been the touchstone of our country's justice system and political life. 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. If we are untethered to truth, our justice system can not function and a society based on the rule of law dissolves'.
