Rudy Giuliani, attorney for President Donald Trump, insisted on Sunday that there was “nothing wrong” with the Trump campaign’s attempt to accept help from Russians to win the 2016 election.
During an interview on CNN, Giuliani slammed Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who recently criticized Trump over revelations from special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
“Stop the bull. Stop the bull,” Giuliani complained. “What a hypocrite. What a hypocrite. Any candidate in the whole world in America would take information [about its opponent].”
“From a foreign source, hostile foreign source?” CNN host Jake Tapper pressed.
“Who says it’s even illegal?” Giuliani shot back. “Does the information turn out to be false, by the way? The information that was gleaned and disseminated, every newspaper printed it. Why did The Washington Post print the information that came from a foreign source when they knew it was hacked? Aren’t they just as wrong for doing that as the campaign wanting to use it?”
“No, no, there’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians,” he added. “It depends on where it came from. It depends on where it came from. You’re assuming that the giving of information is a campaign contribution.”

Swiss holding ‘funeral march’ to mark disappearance of an Alpine glacier
Dozens of people will undertake a "funeral march" up a steep Swiss mountainside on Sunday to mark the disappearance of an Alpine glacier amid growing global alarm over climate change.
The Pizol "has lost so much substance that from a scientific perspective it is no longer a glacier," Alessandra Degiacomi, of the Swiss Association for Climate Protection, told AFP.
The organisation which helped organise Sunday's march said around 100 people were due to take part in the event, set to take place as the UN gathers youth activists and world leaders in New York to mull the action needed to curb global warming.

Security forces fired live rounds at protesters calling for the ouster of Egyptian president: report
Egyptian security forces clashed with hundreds of anti-government protesters in the port city of Suez on Saturday, firing tear gas and live rounds, said several residents who participated in the demonstrations.
A heavy security presence was also maintained in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicentre of Egypt's 2011 revolution, after protests in several cities called for the removal of general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
Such demonstrations are rare after Egypt effectively banned protests under a law passed following the 2013 military ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi.
