Giuliani Admits Trump Has Been Lying, Says It’s Okay Because ‘He’s Not Under Oath’
Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani admitted on Sunday that the president has not always told the truth about allegations of felony campaign-finance violations. But he also suggested that it was okay for Trump to lie about that because he was not under oath.
During an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Giuliani accepted the fact and acknowledged that Trump changed his story several times when discussing his account of payments made to two women who say they had sexual relationships with the president had changed several times during an investigation.
Giuliani went on to claim that the US attorney for the Southern District of New York had offered Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen a reduced sentence in exchange for implicating Trump and that Cohen was highly motivated to blame the president for the crimes.
“There’s a real motivation to sing like crazy — you’ve got to do a lot of singing to get out of the three years,” Giuliani said. “And he will say whatever he has to say. He’s changed his story four or five times.”
“So has the president,” Stephanopoulos interjected.
“The president’s not under oath,” Giuliani said, as he did not deny that Trump had changed his story on the payments and had often contradicted himself.
“The president is trying to do the best he can to remember what happened,” Giuliani continued.
Giuliani then tried to downplay Trump’s lies by claiming that he was “the busiest man in the world” and had memory problems.
“I was with him most of that time,” Giuliani said of Trump. “I can’t remember a lot of the stuff that goes on there.”
