The Hill reports:
President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that there was “nothing wrong” with a campaign accepting help from Russia. “There’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians,” Giuliani told CNN host Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” “It depends on where it came from,” he added.
“You’re assuming that the giving of information is a campaign contribution.” Tapper pushed back on Giuliani’s claim, questioning whether Giuliani would accept information from Russians against a candidate if he were running for office.
“I probably wouldn’t, I wasn’t asked,” Giuliani responded. “I would have advised, just out of excess of caution, ‘don’t do it.”
Asked Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on @MittRomney statement he was “appalled” that Trump team “welcomed help from Russia”…
He called Romney a hypocrite and said “There’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians…it depends on where it comes from.”
