Rudy Giuliani says he never discussed a pardon with President Donald Trump.
“#FakeNews NYT lies again,” Giuliani wrote on Twitter on Tuesday in reference to The New York Times story published earlier in the day, saying the former New York City mayor discussed a preemptive pardon with the president as recently as last week.
The Times cited two people familiar with the matter and said Giuliani discussed the possibility of being issued a preemptive pardon before Trump leaves office.
#FakeNews NYT lies again. Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source. Hard to keep up with all their lies.
