Kennedy Won’t Say If Giuliani Is Wrong To Shrug Off Using Stolen Material

May 5, 2019 5:08 p.m.

When asked on Sunday about Rudy Giuliani saying there was “nothing wrong” with the Trump campaign using Russian information, Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) struggled to directly repudiate Giuliani’s comment.

During an interview on “Meet The Press,” Chuck Todd asked Kennedy if Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s lawyer, was wrong to make such a remark.

“I don’t know if he’s wrong or right,” Kennedy responded. “I don’t know what the law is.”

An exasperated Todd asked, “But ethically, should that be wrong?”

“Well if you’re asking me, yeah, I’m not going to use stolen material from Russia or China,” the Louisiana senator said. “I don’t know anyone who would.”
