Rudy Giuliani now saying the conversation that he said took place between Trump and Comey about Flynn, never took place.

Rudy Giuliani on Sunday said President Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey never discussed former national security adviser Mike Flynn, backtracking from July comments in which he indicated otherwise.

“There was no conversation about Michael Flynn,” Trump’s personal attorney said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “That is what he will testify to if he’s asked that question.”

He also told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he never said the president had asked Comey to give Flynn a break. “I said that is what Comey is saying,” Giuliani said.

Tapper referenced comments by Giuliani to ABC last month in which the attorney said Trump did not ask Comey to drop the investigation. “He didn’t direct him to do that,” Giuliani said in July. “What he said to him was, ‘Can you give him a break?’”

Flynn, an outspoken adviser to Trump’s campaign, served briefly as his national security adviser. During an FBI investigation into Flynn, Comey said Trump told him, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.”

So even when shown a tape of him saying those words, Giuliani still thinks that he can deny reality and say that he did not say what he said. 

Keep in mind that Giuliani did this exact same thing at the end of last month:

In a day of confusing statements, President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani first startled observers with a public claim of a previously unknown meeting involving top Trump associates and Kremlin-linked Russians — then recanted the claim and said the meeting “never happened.”

During a nearly 45-minute interview on CNN at 8 a.m., Giuliani said Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, who appears to have turned on his former boss, claims that top Trump officials met at Trump Tower to plan for a scheduled June 9, 2016 meeting days later with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer promising dirt on Trump’s campaign rival, Hillary Clinton.

In a subsequent interview four hours later — and after some Democrats said the earlier meeting amounted to new evidence of calculated collusion with Russia — Giuliani denied it ever took place, saying he was merely repeating a claim that multiple reporters had been asking him about.

Hell not only is it a given that Trump will perjure himself under questioning by Mueller, but I think there is a strong possibility that Giuliani will perjure himself if asked any questions by investigators as well.

    Of course they’re going to perjure themselves. There are no consequences.

      “Pavlov’s jetset lifestyle embodies the elaborate network of connections between the Russian state and Western elites that special counsel Robert Mueller is now charged with investigating. Like most people in this world, Pavlov has always been a closed book—until now.”
      They also reveal the way Russia and its oligarchs and outriders work—drawing together those in the Western establishment, its top businesses, and its numerous middlemen into the intrigues of the Russian state, its satellites, and its wealthy power players.”
      “It is not illegal, nor even necessarily immoral, for any Western citizen or business to have dealings with Russia or its satellites—as billions of dollars of Russian investment into London property and American lawyers signals, it’s become a key component in Western economies. “”The prosecutors alleged that a Russian criminal gang had managed to re-register companies belonging to a hedge fund based in the U.S. and U.K.—Hermitage Capital—to themselves, before orchestrating sham lawsuits that awarded massive damages against them. This meant the companies were then eligible for huge tax refunds, owing to their lawsuit-induced losses, which were then siphoned into numerous offshore accounts belonging to the conspirators.”

      But as Pavlov’s email cache highlights, nor is it simple. Working out where businesses, alleged criminals, governments, and state agencies end and begin is all but impossible, and often comes with considerable moral ambiguity—especially as so many Russian stories, from alleged assassinations, to frauds, to business deals, to lobbying, intertwine and interconnect.

      These interconnections have now taken center stage in American politics, thanks to the U.S. president’s years-long dealings with Russia: Trump and his family have their own connections with almost every entity involved in this story.”

    Next Giuliani will be blaming it on dementia. If this is the “best” that trump can hire, I hate to see the worst.Of course Rudy is also wasting a lot of journalist’s time, fact checking and reminding him what he said an hour ago, so maybe this is their game plan.

    personally, I just have to laugh. When are they going to disbar him/

    ” “This is a slow-motion purge and it will not spare anyone outside Trump’s inner circle, which will become smaller over time.”

    “Trump, like any autocrat, aims to rewrite the law so that he can break it. As he purges the officials who investigate corruption, he packs courts with judges who will exonerate him regardless of evidence,””

    “Responding to Davis’ tweet, White said he was in shock that McGahn would stoop to writing up agreements aimed at intimidating and silencing government employees from speaking publicly.

    “That’s astonishing,” ”

    “He understands that his client, as the president of the United States, can’t face indictment and trial in the normal way any other American citizen can. The legal system can’t catch up with him, at least while he’s president. Only the political system can.”
