President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is known by some to hurt his client more than help him.
Such was the case on Monday afternoon, after Trump's impeachment defense attorney, Jane Raskin, defended Giuliani on the Senate floor, dismissing the idea that he went to Ukraine to look for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
Giuliani commended Raskin on Twitter.
Giuliani blamed the familiar—if imaginary—establishment media.
It wasn't long before a supposed member of the establishment media specter, CNN's Jake Tapper, used Giuliani's own words against him.
Tapper pointed out Giuliani's statement in a September interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, in which Giuliani denied attempting to dig up dirt on Biden before almost immediately admitting that he did.
Numerous officials testified under oath to the House committees that Giuliani was conducting back channel diplomacy in an effort to spur an investigation into Burisma, the energy company on which Biden's son Hunter was a board member. They all said they understood Burisma to be a code for Biden. Giuliani's own former allies have said the same.
Despite his track record, Giuliani's ineptitude was still surprising.
In a 2018 interview, Giuliani once claimed that "Truth is not truth."
It appears he's still clinging to that belief.
