The Hill: In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Rudy Giuliani disputed that the White House lied last summer when representatives denied that President Trump dictated a statement about a meeting between his son and a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, even though he is now saying he did.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked Giuliani why he thought Trump’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders “chose to lie” about the president’s involvement in crafting the statement about the meeting at Trump Tower.
Giuliani defended both of them on Monday, but emphasized that a later written statement on the matter was accurate.
“I have no idea how they got it wrong, but they got it wrong. I don’t think either one of them is ever going to deliberately lie,” Giuliani said.
In the letter, they also confirmed that Trump dictated a statement about the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr., other Trump campaign aides and a Russian lawyer who promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
