During an MSNBC panel discussion on Rudy Giulini’s disastrous interview on NBC Sunday morning, an ex-federal prosecutor said his flailing performance indicated that he knows he is losing the legal battle with special counsel Robert Mueller.
Speaking with NBC host Chuck Todd, the personal attorney for President Donald Trump argued about the nature of “truth,” finally blurting “truth isn’t truth” to the incredulous host.
Asked by AM Joy fill-in host Rev. Al Sharpton “What just happened here?” ex-prosecutor Joyce Vance said the former New York City mayor is “in a very dark place.”
“If you have to resort to ‘truth isn’t truth,’ particularly as a lawyer, you’re in a dark place,” she explained. “You’re in a place where you know your client is in a lot of trouble because we know there is a truth and when two witnesses tell different stories in an investigation, the job is to look at evidence that corroborates one version or the other.”
“But Trump tried to maintain that the truth is what he says the truth is ” Vance continued, “and a couple weeks ago he said you can’t believe what you see, you can’t believe what you hear and at bottom it’s this effort by his administration to convince the American people that there is no truth.”
“That is the most disheartening part of this endeavor because there is truth, it’s what prosecutors like folks in my former job do every day in court — help juries make determinations about what is the truth,” she lectured. “There is a truth about this presidency and it’s time for the American people to learn what it is.”

Trump un-ironically worries a presidential candidate who refuses to concede and then shreds the constitution
President Donald Trump officially kicked off his re-election campaign at a campaign rally in Orlando, Florida -- the 60th campaign rally of his presidency.
During the speech, Trump offered a good deal of projection as he made baseless accusations against Democrats -- on the same exact topics where he has been credibly accused.
"This election is a verdict on whether we want to live in a country where the people will lose an election, refused to concede to spend the next two years trying to shred our Constitution and rip your country apart," Trump argued.
An economic crash is looming, and it could determine the fate of Trump — and the country
If he times it right, Donald Trump might set back the Democratic Party for a generation or more; if he misses, he’ll go down in history along with Herbert Hoover as the guy who brought the nation an economic disaster.
Back in 2007 and early 2008, many of us were convinced that an economic crash was coming, and that George W. Bush and his Treasury secretary, Henry Paulson, and Fed chairman, Alan Greenspan, knew it.
And we also thought that they were doing everything they could to hold it off so it would happen after the 2008 election, so if a Democrat was elected they could say the crash was because people were “worried about the incoming Democrats,” and if McCain won it would be his problem, not Bush’s.
‘We have been under siege’: Trump falsely claims he has been ‘violently’ attacked by his critics
President Donald Trump claimed to be the victim of "violence" during his official campaign kickoff in Orlando, Florida.
"Many times I said we would drain the swamp and that’s exactly what we are doing right now. We are draining the swamp," Trump claimed, despite having the most scandal-plagued administration in American history.
"And that is why the swamp is fighting back so viciously and violently," Trump argued.
"For the last two and a half years we have been under siege and with the Mueller report we want and now they want a do-over. They want a do-over," he repeated.
