MSNBC’s Katy Tur had trouble holding back the laughter as they discussed Rudy Giuliani’s latest attempts to defend Donald Trump from Robert Mueller’s investigation, and his subsequent walkback of his “truth isn’t truth” line amid renewed attacks on former FBI chief James Comey this weekend.

Speaking to reporter Kristen Welker, Tur asked if the president’s legal team ‘seriously believe that calling James Comey a leaker is going to be enough to overcome the credibility problem that the president himself has.’ She added that the Washington Post has compiled an exhaustive list of the president’s misstatements, obfuscations, and outright lies. ‘He has over 4,000 false, misleading claims since he has just been president, Tur said in clear disbelief. ‘That’s like over six and a half or seven and a half times a day.’

Welker responded by listing a series of inaccurate statements by Giuliani about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Jr’s awareness of what Russia was offering, saying ‘there were a lot of contradictions and things that Rudy Giuliani may be walking back today.’

"Doesn't it trouble you that [Parnas] was working so closely with Rudy Giuliani, who was acting on the president's behalf and saying he was acting on the president's behalf?" host Brennan asked. "

‘No sound basis’: Georgetown law professor explains why Alan Dershowitz will crumble under Senate questioning

Georgetown law professor John Mikhail suggested on Sunday that the portion of President Donald Trump's defense which is being covered by Alan Dershowitz to fail because it has "no sound basis" in history and law.

"There is no sound basis for Alan Dershowitz to claim that abuse of power is not an impeachable offense. In addition to being at odds with common sense, this claim is contradicted by a clear and consistent body of historical evidence," Mikhail stated.

The law professor cited the impeachment of Warren Hastings in the 1780s.

"Some of the best evidence comes from the case of Warren Hastings, which informed the drafting Art. II, Sec 4," Mikhail wrote. "The fact that he was not guilty of treason, but still deserved to be impeached, was a major reason 'other high crimes and misdemeanors' was added to the Constitution."
