"People who lie are held accountable", he continued.

Giuliani made the original comment in the context of whether President Trump should sit for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney says he wasn't trying to make an existential point about the meaning of veracity when he declared "truth isn't truth".

Nah, he just meant sometimes truth can't be determined because of the classic "he said, she said puzzle". You, you told me, you, you asked me, you know, did they show an intention to do anything with Russians?

Giuliani said the Trump campaign "didn't know" that Natalia Veselnitskaya "was a representative of the Russian government" or even Russian. And Todd, wise to the ways of modern media, correctly predicted it would become a "bad meme".

Although Trump has insisted he would cooperate with Mueller and field questions from his team of investigators, the president's own legal counsel has reportedly been less keen on the idea.

"Truth is truth", NBC host Chuck Todd remarked during Sunday's interview.
