Giuliani: "Nothing Wrong" With Taking Information From The Russians


During an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said, "there’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians."

"There's nothing wrong with taking information from Russians. It depends on where it came from," Giuliani said. "You're assuming that the giving of information is a campaign contribution. Read the report carefully. The report says we can't conclude that because the law is pretty much against that. People get information from this person, that person."

Host Jake Tapper asked Giuliani if he would take information from Russians if he were a political candidate.

"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 followed up.

"There's no crime," Giuliani replied. "We're going to get into morality? That isn't what prosecutors look at, morality."
