Speak Out: Nothing wrong with it?

President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani insisted Sunday there was “nothing wrong” with the president’s 2016 campaign taking information from the Russians, as House Democrats pledged stepped-up investigations into campaign misconduct and possible crimes of obstruction detailed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report .

Giuliani called the Trump campaign’s effort to get political help from representatives of the Russian government possibly ill-advised but not illegal.

“There’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians,” Giuliani said, referring to a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Trump’s son Donald Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and a lawyer linked to Russia. The Trump campaign was seeking harmful information on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

• Good way to get disbarred! — Rick Reed

• More wasted taxpayer funds. Typical of the left. — Jason Rextc

• Who knows just how much classified information the Russians gleaned from Hillary’s unprotected emails. We only got fed back the info pertaining to the DNC, but let’s face it folks, they got all 30,000 of them. Don’t blame the Trump team, because they didn’t hack her. All the hacking was done while Obama watched and said the Russians couldn’t influence the election. Let’s keep our eye on the ball and don’t be distracted by inconsequential crap. — Chris Wolfe

• Giuliani should have retired decades ago and is most likely senile at this point. Certainly he is far more dangerous continuing to practice then he is at doing what an attorney is supposed to do — protect and represent their clients best interests — not get their face in the news with irrelevant, stupid and possibly a breach of oath. If he won’t retire he should be disbarred. — Victoria M. Olds

• Imagine, for a second, if a lawyer for a Democratic president had said such a thing. — Shiret Singh

• It makes you susceptible to pressure from foreign powers. That’s why we don’t do this! — Margarett Burns

• Would you consider millions of Russian dollars being given to the Clinton Foundation as pressure from a foreign power? — Frederick Tate

• If you are talking about the uranium thing again: A) It was Canada’s to do with what they wanted. It was part of their payment for processing and reclaiming usable uranium from our waste. None of the money went to Clinton. — Margarett Burns

• I recall Hillary taking help in the form of a phony dossier. — Bob Hice

• MAGA 2020. Nope IMPEACH 2019. — Gary Greer

• Guiliani is the gift that keeps on giving. — Michele Lapinski
