Former federal prosecutor and MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler said Monday he had an alternate reason for Rudy Giuliani’s absence from television lately — it’s not, as Giuliani claims, that there’s nothing more to say, it’s that he slips up and tells the truth about President Donald Trump.
Host Chris Jansing cited a report by Axios saying that the president was unhappy with his lawyer and, highlighting the discrepancy, asked Butler if he accepted that explanation.
“Giuliani’s main problem in representing Trump is that sometimes he tells the truth, and says something that’s different from the false narrative that President Trump puts out,” Butler said. “His last major appearance on TV, Giuliani slipped up and said that the Moscow Tower, Trump Tower meetings had gone on until the election, which seems to be right but that’s different than what Trump was saying. Same thing with regard to the Stormy Daniels payments last year.”
“That’s different from what Trump was saying at the time,” he recalled. “So it’s not surprising in light of these gaffes, and especially with the imminence of the Mueller report, that the Trump team would want Giuliani to chill out for a while.”

Modi tells Xi summit will launch ‘new era’ for India and China
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.

Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
Trump claimed ‘inequality is down’ — one day later federal data showed the exact opposite is true
"The separation between rich and poor from 2017 and 2018 was greater than it has ever been."
Federal data released Thursday showed U.S. income inequality in 2018 reached the highest level since the Census Bureau began measuring it five decades ago, a finding that comes less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump said "inequality is down."
