  • Rudy Giuliani on Russia probe:

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".

During his Meet the Press appearance, Giuliani sparred with anchor Chuck Todd over whether or not the president should sit for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is now investigating Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election.

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

"Truth is truth", Todd said in response.

Instead, Giuliani contradicted months of Trump-team statements that the president was not aware of a $130,000 payment during the 2016 campaign to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, which she says was "hush money" to buy her silence about an alleged affair with Trump.

Twitter temporarily restricts conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' account
But the catch is that Jones' ban will last just seven days-the InfoWars host will not be able to tweet or retweet from his personal account during that week.

Following the backlash, Giuliani has since attempted to clarify his remark, citing that it wasn't "meant as a pontification on moral theology". The outreach was being conducted, that first email said, "as part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

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

On Sunday, Giuliani defended the Trump legal team's drawn-out negotiations over a possible meeting between the president and Mueller's team by saying he does not want Trump to be caught in a so-called perjury trap. Todd recognized it immediately too, noting that Rudy's line was apt to turn into a "bad meme".

Donald Trump says, 'I didn't talk about Flynn with Comey.' Comey says, 'You did talk about it, ' so tell me what the truth is'.

Setmeyer also said Guiliani's semantics quandary was right up there with then-President Clinton's response during his grand jury testimony in 1998 when he tried to question the meaning of "is" on whether he lied about having an affair with intern Monica Lewinsky.
