Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani was hilariously mocked on Friday after he tried to shoot down the theory that President Donald Trump conspired with Russia to undermine the 2016 presidential election by citing a Wikipedia entry.


In anticipation of the upcoming report by special counsel Robert Mueller, Giuliani once again tried to discredit unproven allegations leveled in the intelligence dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele about Trump's relationship with Russia.

"Since 2009 Steele has not been to Russia, or visited any former Soviet states and in 2012, an Orbis informant quoted an FSB-agent describing him as an 'enemy of Mother Russia,'" Giuliani wrote on Twitter. "The below excerpt from Wikipedia, if true, is another indication that the Steele Dossier about Russia is a phony work of political opposition research. Comey never bothered to check when Steele was last in Russia. So where was it written and who wrote it? We demand answers!"

Wikipedia entries are not considered reliable pieces of evidence, given that anyone has the power to edit Wikipedia entries at any time. Added to this, Giuliani himself admitted that he didn't know whether this already flimsy evidence was actually true, even though he claimed it would completely destroy Steele's credibility.

Giuliani's shoddy legal analysis drew instant ridicule from his followers -- check out some reactions below.
