Truth isn't truth, says Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Russian Federation probe

Rudy Giuliani on Russia probe:

Giuliani, a former NY mayor, argued that Trump might be "trapped into perjury" if he testified. In addition, Brennan suggested that he had learned from media reports, since leaving his post in 2017, that there was further evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian hackers. He ultimately cooperated with prosecutors and helped bring down the Nixon presidency, though he served a prison term for obstruction of justice. The Times published the story Saturday, drawing an angry response from the president on Twitter. Fate is never kind to bunglers and/or botchers!

The younger Trump replied: "If it's what you say I love it" - and several days later, the meeting took place. "Trump says I didn't tell them, and the other guy says that he did say it".

Rudy Giuliani on Sunday gave another eyebrow-raising TV interview, telling NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday he's concerned about special counsel Robert Mueller interviewing President Donald Trump because the "truth isn't the truth".

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani admitted Sunday that the controversial 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Trump campaign officials and a Kremlin-linked attorney was to get "dirt" on his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Nvidia has shared with the world its next game-changing GPU innovation which happens to be the world's first ray-tracing GPU. The RT Cores can churn through ray-tracing performance at a staggering 25x faster than previous Pascal GPUs , Nvidia claims.

In the Meet The Press interview, Todd attempted to ask Giuliani why Trump would be concerned about a "perjury trap" if he did not intend to lie to the Special Counsel.

They pointed out that it's in the president's interest to do everything to discredit the Mueller probe in order to stave off impeachment.

Trump is also calling the investigation "McCarthyism at its WORST", a reference to indiscriminate allegations made by Sen. Joseph McCarthy's tirade exposing communists in the 1950s.

"Study the late Joseph McCarthy, because we are now in period with Mueller and his gang that make Joseph McCarthy look like a baby!"

Trump's Russian Federation denial 'hogwash', blasts Brennan
His criticisms provoked Trump to tweet this week, quoting a former Secret Service agent, calling Brennan a "stain" on our country. Brennan is not facing any formal charges of violating any regulations or laws .

Giuliani, who's representing Trump in the investigation, said the president's legal team has been negotiating with Mueller's investigators for months about the ground rules for the president to testify. Mr Trump has disputed that.

Others were also quick to slam Giuliani's statement, with Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., tweeting the reasoning of Trump's attorney "is another step towards authoritarianism".

Trump at the time seemed to be responding to stories from CNN and the Washington Post that cited several anonymous sources close to the president who said his concerns over Trump Jr. have pushed him to issue more critical public statements attacking USA intelligence and the media.
