President Donald Trump’s defense attorney made yet another inadvertent revelation during an interview with The New Yorker published on Monday evening.

Earlier in the day, Giuliani had attempted to walk-back weekend interviews on NBC’s “Meet the Press and with the New York Times.

Giuliani was asked about his latest opinions on the BuzzFeed report that Trump had suborned perjury.

“I guess the BuzzFeed story—I don’t remember what it said about Cohen—but it said there was corroboration that the President talked to Cohen and told him to lie about, I guess it was, the Moscow proposal,” the former New York City mayor said.

“There are no tapes, there are no texts, there is no corroboration that the President told him to lie,” Giuliani argued.

“But I can tell you, from the moment I read the story, I knew the story was false,” he added.

“Because I have been through all the tapes, I have been through all the texts, I have been through all the emails, and I knew none existed,” Giuliani said.

“Wait, what tapes have you gone through?” The New Yorker asked.

“I shouldn’t have said tapes,” Giuliani answered. “They alleged there were texts and e-mails that corroborated that Cohen was saying the President told him to lie.”

“So, there were no tapes you listened to, though?” The New Yorker followed-up.

“No tapes,” Giuliani replied.

“Well, I have listened to tapes, but none of them concern this,” he corrected.

Giuliani has been criticized for “making a mess” of Trump’s legal defense.

People close to Trump have reportedly “grown exasperated” with Giuliani.

The Washington Post's Philip Bump has tracked down statements from ten different Republican senators who in the past indicated that impeachment charges against President Donald Trump would be far more serious if it could be proven there was a quid-pro-quo agreement that involved exchanging the release of foreign aid to Ukraine for the investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden.

All of the statements flagged by Bump came before this week's bombshell revelation that former national security adviser John Bolton's upcoming book will reportedly say the president directly linked Ukraine aid to the Biden investigation.

Law professor slams Trump team’s ‘distortions of facts’ as they try to shoot down congressional subpoenas

Published

on

Writing for The Atlantic, University of Missouri Law professor Frank Bowman excoriated the White House legal team for their rationale against honoring congressional subpoenas in the impeachment inquiry.

"On Saturday, Trump’s lawyer Pat Philbin tried to extinguish any flickers of enlightened self-interest among Republicans by arguing that Trump was entitled to stonewall the House because the House hadn’t properly authorized its own subpoenas," wrote Bowman. "Like so many contentions of the president’s defenders, this is malarkey thinly draped with plausible-sounding distortions of facts, rules, court opinions, and the Constitution itself."

Trump has been mysteriously ignoring Melania’s initiatives in his major speeches: report

Published

on

According to a report on Politico, an analysis of Donald Trump's State of the Union addresses shows that the president has neglected to boost his wife's most notable achievement in her three years as first lady -- apparently at the urging of aides who feel it is best not to bring it up.

Traditionally, first ladies take on a cause after settling in and Melania Trump has been no different, launching her "Be Best" campaign aimed at halting online bullying. However, that campaign has been ignored by the president in all of his major speeches where he has touted his administration's accomplishments.
