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.”
“But you’re saying there was nothing wrong with doing that,” Tapper interjected.
“There’s no crime,” Giuliani replied. “We’re going to get into morality? That isn’t what prosecutors look at — morality.”
