Trump Touts Giuliani's Ukraine Investigations: 'Totally On His Game'
Trump praised Giuliani's stela track record as mayor of New York City
President Donald Trump touted his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani's work conducting research in Ukraine, saying he was "very legally" circumventing before adding he is "totally on his game."
Trump, in the past, said he "didn't direct" Giuliani to conduct Ukraine-related investigations against political rivals, but later appeared to accept the premise that he was involved.
"Was it strange to send Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine, your personal lawyer? Are you sorry you did that?" Rivera asked.
"Not at all. Rudy was a great crime fighter. You know that maybe better than anybody, and Rudy is totally on his game," Trump said.
Trump praised Giuliani's stela track record as mayor of New York City.
"I was illegally spied on by [James] Comey, [John] Brennan, and all the sleaze of the world," Trump said, citing top officials previously within the government.
"So, when you tell me, why did I use Rudy, and one of the things about Rudy, No. 1, he was one of the very best prosecutors and the best mayor," Trump said.
"But, also, other presidents had them ... they all had lawyers ... and they do things for them. It's really circumventing, but very legally, and maybe getting things done faster," Trump said.
Giuliani stated he was working on trump's behalf to uncover evidence to undercut claims levied against his client.

Democrats accused Trump of pressuring Ukraine to uncover political dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, which was the basis of the impeachment charges against him was were acquitted last week.
Earlier this month, Giuliani said Trump should "absolutely, 100%" investigate Joe Biden and his family's dealings in Ukraine.
Giuliani advised Trump not to back away from investigating allegations of corruption involving the ex-vice president and his son Hunter Biden.
Giuliani told NPR in a Tuesday interview that he "absolutely" wants Trump to launch a probe.
"I would have no problem with him doing it," Giuliani told the outlet.
"In fact, I'd have a problem with him not doing it."
"I think he would be saying that Joe Biden can get away with selling out the United States, making us a fool in the Ukraine."
