"Trump says I didn't tell them, and the other guy says that he did say it".

"I'm old enough to remember when we went after Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonTime running out for Trump's NAFTA talks Pioneer of modern redistricting dies at 75 To reduce urban violence, let's consider the real causes - not guns, police or "low" taxes MORE for "depends on what the definition of 'is" is, ' that's up there - I think this might beat that", Setmeyer said.

"I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime", Giuliani said in an interview on Fox News". Comey says you did talk about it.

"But men are, you know, disposable". The outreach was being conducted, that first email said, "as part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

Although Trump has insisted he would cooperate with Mueller and field questions from his team of investigators, the president's own legal counsel has reportedly been less keen on the idea.

"Look, I'm not going to be rushed into having [Trump] testify so that he gets trapped into perjury", Giuliani told Todd.

"Truth isn't truth?" a startled Todd asked.

"This is going to be a bad meme", he said.
