‘It’s all bupkis’: Rudy Giuliani desperately tries to downplay Michael Flynn news

Special counsel Robert Mueller recommended no jail time for former Donald Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn following his "substantial cooperation" on three investigations -- including Trump campaign collusion with Russia.


The heavily redacted document reveals Flynn was interviewed 19 times while cooperating with federal investigators.

But Rudy Giuliani, Trump's defense attorney, attempted to downplay the implications for the White House, NBC News chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson reported Tuesday.

"I just got off the phone with the president's outside attorney, Rudy Giuliani," Jackson reported. "And Giuliani is, frankly, downplaying the headlines that are coming out tonight, telling us he is not concerned Flynn shared anything with the special counsel that could point the finger at President Trump."

"In fact, Giuliani brought up a Yiddish word, 'bupkis' -- they don't have bupkis," she continued.

Bupkis means nothingness.

Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, said that if Flynn had information to hurt Trump, he would know it by now.
