Giuliani: ‘Nothing Wrong’ With Getting Political Dirt From Russians
The Trump campaign’s attempt to solicit political assistance from agents of the Russian government was perfectly legal, the president’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani suggested on Sunday, calling it was a completely defensible political move.
“There’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians,” Giuliani told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview on Sunday morning, referring to a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting at which Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner solicited dirt on Hillary Clinton from people they believed to be acting at the behest of the Russian government.
Pressed by Tapper on whether it’s “okay” to use information stolen by adversarial foreign governments in the service of a presidential candidacy, Giuliani replied, “it depends on the stolen material.”
