Twitter Gives Rudy Giuliani Hell For His Imagined Talk To St. Peter

Giuliani said he knew the story was false because "I have been through all the tapes, I have been through all the texts, I have been through all the emails, and I knew none existed".

Giuliani, in case you missed it over the weekend, told CNN's Jake Tapper that maybe Trump did or maybe Trump didn't talk to Michael Cohen before Cohen lied to Congress about the Moscow Project.

Trump's discussions with Cohen about the Moscow project - regardless of when they ended - happened while Trump cozied up to Russian Federation with his rhetoric on the campaign trail.

An investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Moscow and Trump's campaign has loomed large over the Trump presidency amid media reports of his team's alleged connections with Russian Federation. Trump tweeted over the weekend, adding later: "Many people are saying that the Mainstream Media will have a very hard time restoring credibility because of the way they have treated me over the past 3 years (including the election lead-up), as highlighted by the disgraceful Buzzfeed story & the even more disgraceful coverage!"

For the second time in the space of a week, Rudy Giuliani has found himself walking back his own startling statements.

The president's former fixer Michael Cohen has already pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about the timeline, having falsely claimed the negotiations ended almost a year before.

"So what if he talked to him about it?" he asked.

I got a hold of the transcript of Giuliani's sit-down with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" on Sunday, and picked out some of the most notable - and newsworthy lines.

Giuliani's timeline extends beyond what Cohen acknowledged in pleading guilty to lying to Congress about the deal: In that timeline, discussions about the tower continued through June 2016.

"I don't know if they made it up", the former New York City mayor told The New Yorker's Isaac Chotiner in a wide-ranging interview.

The Giuliani comments were made after BuzzFeed News claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller has evidence that Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress about how long negotiations from Trump Tower Moscow ("The Moscow Project") went on. "What I was talking about was, if he had those conversations, they would not be criminal". Giuliani has contradicted himself a few times when discussing Trump's plans for a Moscow real estate deal in the past, and the Washington Post's Aaron Blake addresses some of those contradictions in a January 22 op-ed. But, if it is, so what do I care? And, I think, when this is over, you are going to see that we are defending an innocent man who has been very unfairly treated.
