TODD: You believe that this is on them, that you guys have not delayed the interviewing, delayed the negotiations with Mr. Mueller?
"Truth is truth", Todd said. "So tell me what the truth is".
"Truth isn't truth?" Todd interjected.
Todd said this was going to become a "bad meme".
"I think the strategy has been to undermine institutions", Cook said. "Truth isn't truth", Giuliani said. Todd's reverence for the ability of Mueller to divine "the truth", evident in his interview yesterday with Trump spokesman Rudy Giuliani, can be understood as ill-informed by anyone who has troubled to read Andrew McCarthy's NR column "Of Course There Is Such a Thing as a 'Perjury Trap.'". Truth isn't truth. Donald Trump says, "I didn't talk about Flynn with Comey".
"If you're just a genius, tell me what the truth is!" "And when you tell me that he should testify because he's going to tell the truth and he shouldn't worry, well that's so silly because that's somebody's version of the truth, not the truth".
It was Giuliani's practical deployment of the idea that truth is subjective, though, that was probably more meaningful.
Move over, alternative facts.
On June 3, 2016, Donald Trump Jr. received an email from Rob Goldstone, a business associate of Trump senior. In a CNN interview on Tuesday, Giuliani insisted to interviewer Chris Cuomo that "facts" are "in the eye of the beholder".
"No, facts are not in the eye of the beholder", Cuomo countered.
"Yes it is - yes they are".
Giuliani even suggested they may not have known she was Russian.
Trump in a series of Sunday morning tweets is responding to a New York Times story reporting that McGahn has given hours of testimony to the special counsel investigating Russian election meddling.
When the host points out the contradiction, Giuliani attempts to walk back his statement on the meeting's intent. While experts cautioned against drawing any premature legal conclusions, they told us the Trump Tower interaction raised serious concerns about whether USA federal election law was broken. Which is the truth?
"But men are, you know, disposable".
"Truth has always been the touchstone of our country's justice system and political life", said Comey. It wasn't until after the meeting was set up that Trump Jr.'s contact said he would send the names of the people who would be attending on Russia's behalf.
