Giuliani: ‘Nothing Wrong’ With Taking Information from Russians
The president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, articulated the permissive rules that the Trump White House wants applied to itself and to no one else.
“There’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians,” Giuliani said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
He was referring to a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Mr. Trump’s son Donald Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in which they sought from a lawyer linked to Russia harmful information on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Giuliani’s remarks were provoked by Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, who said in a statement on Twitter Friday he was “sickened” by the findings from Mueller’s 400-plus page report in the Russia investigation. Romney cited details on how the Trump campaign welcomed political dirt from Russia.
