Joy Reid’s program on MSNBC followed “Meet The Press” where Giuliani revealed that Trump may have actually engaged in talks in Moscow to build one of his Trump Towers as recently as November 2016.
Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney and fixer, had previously said those talks ended in January 2016 but later pleaded guilty to lying about that timeline. Giuliani suggested that Trump may have just forgotten about the Moscow project.
Former NYC Mayor and current attorney for President Trump, Rudy Giuliani, has been raising some eyebrows lately with his rambling tweets and awkward appearances on TV. Sunday’s outlandish appearances on popular news programs were no different and a panel on MSNBC is finally taking him to task.
Former House GOP staffer Kurt Bardella couldn’t quite believe what he was hearing, saying,
“I don’t think he understands anything that he’s saying half the time at this point… It’s almost like, does Rudy even talk to Donald Trump at all? This has got to be the worst lawyer in the history of mankind. He should be disbarred for being such a terrible lawyer.”
On CNN the same day, Jake Tapper drilled Giuliani with questions about the president’s involvement in Cohen’s statements to Congress about the Moscow towers, asking, “So it’s possible that … President Trump talked to Michael Cohen about his testimony?” with Giuliani responding, “I don’t know if it happened or didn’t happen. And so what if he talked to him about it?”
Outrage again from the MSNBC panel with Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne saying,
“If there’s ever a trial on all of this, I think a whole day of the trial will just be jurors watching old Rudy Giuliani tapes and clips because the number of times he is essentially confirming Trump lied through his teeth about doing business with Russia in that period ― it’s just astounding.”
