Republican strategist and CNN commentator Alice Stewart says that President Donald Trump‘s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani should “shut his mouth” until he “gets all the facts straight.”
Stewart, who worked on Sen. Ted Cruz‘s 2016 presidential campaign, made the comment Saturday to CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield, who asked about the White House’s messaging strategy in light of multiple contradictions in recent weeks. The most recent contradiction occurred when Giuliani suggested during an interview with HuffPo that Trump played a role in the Justice Department’s anti-trust case involving the AT&T/Time Warner merger after previously saying the opposite.
“I think someone needs to pull the mouthpiece aside and tell him to shut his mouth until he gets all the facts straight,” Stewart said, referring to Giuliani. “Here we have Rudy Giuliani not just with this case saying that the president denied the merger, didn’t interfere, he knew about the stormy Daniels’ payment before he denied it.”
“These are problems that can be corrected or avoided if he would just get his facts straight on the front end and stop talking out of school or about information he has absolutely no knowledge about,” Stewart added.
Trump recently acknowledged Giuliani’s misstep regarding Trump’s knowledge of a payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, saying the former New York City mayor had “just started” his job and will eventually “get his facts straight.”
