President TrumpDonald John TrumpGillibrand backs federal classification of third gender: report Former Carter pollster, Bannon ally Patrick Caddell dies at 68 Heather Nauert withdraws her name from consideration for UN Ambassador job MORE’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Monday sought to clarify the “truth isn’t truth” comment he made Sunday, saying he was referencing “he said, she said” situations.

“My statement was not meant as a pontification on moral theology but one referring to the situation where two people make precisely contradictory statements, the classic ‘he said,she said’ puzzle. Sometimes further inquiry can reveal the truth other times it doesn’t,” Giuliani tweeted.

Giuliani made his “truth isn’t truth” remark while appearing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”


In attempting to explain why Trump hasn’t sat for an interview with investigators in special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe MORE's Russia probe, Giuliani said he doesn’t want Trump to be “trapped into perjury.”

"And when you tell me that he should testify because he’s going to tell the truth and he shouldn’t worry, well that’s so silly because that’s somebody’s version of the truth, not the truth," Giuliani said.

"Truth is truth,” host Chuck Todd responded.

"No, it isn’t," Giuliani said. "Truth isn’t truth."

"Mr. Mayor ... this is going to become a bad meme," Todd responded.

In another tweet Monday, Giuliani said former FBI director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyMcCabe's 25th Amendment comments 'taken out of context,' spokeswoman says Ex-federal prosecutor: I would have 'owned' wearing a wire to record Trump Ex-federal prosecutor: 'Thank God' Whitaker is gone, Barr will bring 'integrity' back to DOJ MORE is “the last person who should pontificate on truth,” seemingly responding to Comey’s tweet Sunday saying that “truth exists and truth matters” — a tweet from the frequent Trump critic that appeared to be in response to Giuliani’s comments on "Meet the Press."
