Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani: Truth isn't truth

"People who lie are held accountable", he continued.

"Truth isn't truth", Giuliani, now part of President Trump's external legal team, told host Chuck Todd.

The meeting in question took place at Trump Tower in June of 2016, when Donald Trump Jr., Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with a Russian lawyer with the understanding that she would pass along damaging information about Clinton, Trump's opponent in the presidential race.

President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has responded to a public backlash after he claimed that "truth isn't truth" during an interview.

"When you tell me that, you know, he should testify because he's going to tell the truth and he shouldn't worry, well that's so silly because it's somebody's version of the truth, not the truth", he said.

Giuliani attempted some cleanup just now. It's especially unsafe to try to tell the truth to a federal officer since lying to one is a criminal offense; make an honest mistake in remembering details and you might get indicted depending upon how material that mistake is.

Trump says he allowed McGahn and others to testify.

In January previous year Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told Todd's programme, Meet the Press, that the White House was entitled to present "alternative facts".

Dean was White House counsel for President Richard Nixon during Watergate. And Todd, wise to the ways of modern media, correctly predicted it would become a "bad meme".

The latest: Rudy Giuliani's declaration Sunday that "truth isn't truth", which is mind-numbingly WTF and yet somehow ideal for our post-"fake news" era.

Russian Federation also denies claims it interfered in the polls two years ago, which saw Donald Trump defeat Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

"Truth isn't truth?" Todd said.
