“The president had no knowledge of it,” the former New York City mayor told HuffPost.
“Whatever lobbying was done didn’t reach the president,” he added. “He did drain the swamp … The president denied the merger. They didn’t get the result they wanted.”
Now, to give Rudy a little credit, I’d like to see the full transcript but that one sentence “The president denied the merger” is exactly opposite of what they’ve been saying all along. It’s probably just a lawyer (Rudy) who is programmed to deny pretty much everything.
So either Trump, Rudy or the DOJ is lying. You pick.
