‘Incompetent’ Giuliani gets ruthlessly mocked after walking back his comments on Trump Tower in Moscow

Published

on

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Monday released a statement seeking to clarify his comments over the weekend.

“My recent statements about discussions during the 2016 campaign between Michael Cohen and then-candidate Donald Trump about a potential Trump Moscow ‘project’ were hypothetical and not based on conversations I had with the President. My comments did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any such discussions. The point is that the proposal was in the earliest stage and did not advance beyond a free non-binding letter of intent.”

Giuliani told CNN over the weekend that Trump might have talked to Cohen about his congressional testimony. The attorney also said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that discussions on Trump Tower in Moscow were “active” throughout the 2016 election.

Giuliani’s decision to walk back his comments ignited a wave of mockery online:

“I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton," said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).

In a column for the New York Times, former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal, former Rep. Mickey Edwards (R-OK) and Georgetown law professor Joshua A. Geltzer urged Supreme Court Justice John Roberts to intercede and demand Senate Republicans allow witnesses in light of the latest John Bolton bombshell.

Following a New Times report that stated "President Trump directly tied the withholding of almost $400 million in American security aid to investigations that he sought from Ukrainian officials, according to an unpublished manuscript of a book that John R. Bolton, Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, wrote about his time in the White House," the three took to the Times editorial page to implore Roberts to step in.
