“I don’t know what it would have accomplished if Trump said, ‘I believed Putin did it,’” the former New York mayor told the Daily News minutes after Trump wrapped up his joint appearance with the Russian leader in Helsinki, Finland. “I don’t think we need to call Putin a liar.”

“As far as I know there’s nothing showing that Putin knew about it,” Giuliani said. “We just assume Putin knew something.”

In fact, an extensive report unanimously affirmed by the U.S. intelligence community concluded the Putin regime meddled in the election in a deliberate attempt to boost Trump’s campaign and disparage Hillary Clinton. A string of federal indictments by special counsel Robert Mueller have confirmed the same.

But, even though Trump put more trust in Putin than his own intelligence agencies, Giuliani commended the President on his Helsinki remarks.

“I thought it was professional, very good,” Giuliani, 74, said. “I thought the two have a very good relationship, which we all want.”
