Rudy Giuliani, a former New York City mayor and one of Donald Trump’s most powerful surrogates, says there’s no way to tell the truth about sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh without being able to corroborate them.
The former mayor was speaking on Monday at a CNN town hall, hosted by Anderson Cooper.
Giuliani said he thinks Kavanaugh is guilty and said there is no way for Trump to avoid “a full-scale investigation.”
“You have to have the truth.
You have to be able to say with complete clarity,” Giuliani said.
And he knows that. “
It’s a matter of public record.
And he knows that.
“The truth is, I can’t think of any other reason why Trump wouldn’t lie. “
If he can’t say that, I don of course think he’ll ever get a fair hearing,” Giuliani continued.
“The truth is, I can’t think of any other reason why Trump wouldn’t lie.

Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton speak at a rally in San Francisco on Oct. 12, 2020.
Democrats are expected to hold a rally Monday in San Diego that’s set to include Trump, Attorney General Kamala Harris, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Trump and his allies are planning a series of events to try to convince the public that Trump was not merely making excuses, but was in fact telling the truth and that there was no way he could be innocent.
Trump told a rally earlier this month that there is “no truth” to accusers accusations that Kavanaugh sexually molested them.
“We know that it was a consensual encounter,” Trump said.
The Republican nominee’s camp is also pushing back against the latest claims.
“This is just a bunch of lies,” a spokesperson for the campaign told CNN on Monday.
“Anytime something like this happens, he should immediately apologize.
He should have gone into the courtroom and apologized and that would have been the end of it.””
He should have said ‘I never did anything wrong’ right away.
He should have gone into the courtroom and apologized and that would have been the end of it.”
