CNN commentator Jeffery Toobin said that President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is preparing for the truth to be revealed about the president's contact with Russia.


While talking to different outlets, Giuliani gave contradicting information about whether or not Trump would continue talks with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

"Giuliani also doubled down on the legality of having hacked information. What is he trying to do with that?" CNN's Jim Acosta asked on Thursday.

"I think he's preparing for news that there was more contact between people affiliated with WikiLeaks and people in the Trump campaign," Toobin said.

"Now there was contact between people from WikiLeaks and people with the campaign, but it's not a crime simply to know that other people were engaged in hacking. That's true as far as it goes but what's you need to know is a lot more facts to know if any crime took place," he said.

He added, "But he does seem to be preparing the ground for disclosures that would be at least embarrassing for the president, if not actually illegal."
