President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani is mudding things up for the president after he made contradicting statements about Trump’s relationship with Russia. On Monday CNN’s Jim Sciutto and Sara Murray laughed at how “confusing” Giuliani has been.
“Rudy Giuliani today is making things more confusing. It started in a series of interviews that Trump discussed the Trump tower Moscow project all the way up to election day which is much longer than previously known,” he said. “What is the bottom line from Giuliani’s standpoint?”
“The bottom line is he seems to talk first and figure out the facts later,” Murray responded. “It doesn’t clarify when the conversations about Moscow actually ended.”
Murray then noted that Giuliani is muddying up Trump’s week which could have been a positive news cycle. This is in part because Special Counsel Robert Mueller denied parts of a Buzzfeed article that suggested the president directed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. This was seen as a slight win for Trump who often cries “fake news.”
However, with his lawyer’s confusing interviews it is still unclear where Trump’s relationship with Russia stands.
“So theoretically this should have been a good news cycle for the president and his legal team,” she said.

Elijah Cummings’ widow reveals to The View that Trump’s ‘minions’ bombarded family with death threats: ‘It undermined his health’
The widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings revealed to "The View" that President Donald Trump's attacks motivated his supporters to bombard their family with death threats.
Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, who's running for her late husband's seat in Maryland, said she hoped to build on his legacy as a champion of civil rights and fight back against Republican attempts to limit access to voting.
"We felt like this was our zero moment as a nation, that we have to make sure that we're all on the battlefield fighting for our future, and so while it does not look good in terms of President Trump and the Republicans," she said. "What they're doing to try to take us back 100 years in this country, the fact of the matter is that people are rising up all across the country. They are saying that we will not be oppressed, you will not take our democracy away from us. We have hordes of women who are running to take office, we have young people who are standing up and speaking out."
Kellyanne Conway stumbles after getting fact checked in real time on Fox News
Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday appeared taken aback after getting fact checked in real time on Fox News.
During an interview with Fox News' Sandra Smith, Conway once again echoed President Donald Trump and complained about how unfair the impeachment process has been.
Conway then slammed Senate Democrats for wanting to call witnesses to testify at Trump's impeachment trial.
"Look at what happened in the House, the Republicans, the president was denied calling his own witnesses," Conway falsely claimed, as House Democrats did allow some witnesses who were requested by House Republicans to testify. "That is a complete disgrace!"
Two conservatives explain the fear that will motivate ‘spineless’ GOP senators during Trump impeachment trial
As President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial gets underway, many Republicans are defending the president vigorously. Conservative attorney George Conway, however, has been applauding Trump’s impeachment. And in an op-ed he co-wrote with political consultant Reed Galen for NBC News’ website, Conway describes Trump’s impeachment trial as an event that is “dominated” by “fear.”
“Fear was what Trump used to spin up the Republican base, using stereotypes, lies and hyperbole to dismantle decades of American political discourse,” Conway and Galen assert in their op-ed. “Fear of facing off against former Vice President Joe Biden was what led Trump to demand, as a price for vital military and security aid, that Ukraine help him smear Biden.”
