Trump, in a series of angry tweets, denounced a New York Times story that his White House counsel, Don McGahn, has been cooperating extensively with the special counsel team investigating Russian election meddling and potential collusion with Trump's Republican campaign.
"I am not going to be rushed into having him testify so that he gets trapped into perjury", Giuliani said. "You just said 'truth isn't truth!' That's not acceptable from a president's lawyer".
Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who joined the Trump legal team in April, made the "truth isn't truth" comment while appearing Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" with Chuck Todd on Sunday.
"Don't do "truth isn't truth" to me", Todd fired back.
"No it isn't! Truth isn't truth!".
After Todd put his hand on his forehead and said: "This is going to become a bad meme", the lawyer explained his reasoning.
"Donald Trump says 'I didn't talk about Flynn with Comey, '" he said.
"All they knew is that a woman with a Russian name wanted to meet with them", Giuliani said.
Host Chuck Todd had suggested the Trump team was trying to delay his appearance at the inquiry.
"The meeting was originally for the goal of getting information about Clinton", Giuliani said. Also, Nixon knew I was meeting with prosecutors, b/c I told him.
Obviously the most attention-grabbing aspect of former NY mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani's interview on Sunday's "Meet the Press" was his casual dismissal of the concept of objective reality.
In an earlier interview, Giuliani said facts were in the eye of the beholder when challenged by CNN's Chris Cuomo about Trump's "level of mendacity".
"But men are, you know, disposable". Truth has always been the touchstone of our country's justice system and political life.
"Giuliani was on TV this morning to talk about the ongoing Mueller investigation and he came up with a rationale for his boss' refusal to sit down with Mueller that was, even by Giuliani standards, very Giuliani".
Giuliani, speaking on Fox News, repeated his concern about investigators' potential approach to a Trump interview.
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.
Anyone who thinks Rudy's "Truth isn't truth" is a gaff or misstatement isn't paying attention to the Trump defense strategy.
