  1. Stranger than Fiction says:

    “Rudy Giuliani on Sunday gave another eyebrow-raising TV interview, telling NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday he’s concerned about special counsel Robert Mueller interviewing President Donald Trump because the “truth isn’t the truth.” https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/rudy-giuliani-truth-isnt-truth_us_5b79754be4b018b93e94c9f8 “Look, I’m not going to be rushed into having [Trump] testify so that he gets trapped into perjury,” Giuliani told Todd. “When you tell me that… he should testify because he’s going to tell the truth and he shouldn’t worry. Well, that’s so silly, because it’s somebody’s version of the truth ― not the truth.”
    Todd, visibility perplexed, interrupted: “Truth is truth.” But Giuliani frantically fired back, prompting laughter from Todd.
    ″No it isn’t! Truth isn’t truth!” Giuliani responded. “The president of the United States says, ‘I didn’t ―’”
    “Mr. Mayor, do you realize… this is going to become a bad meme,” Todd interrupted.
    “Trump says, ‘I didn’t tell him.’ And the other guy says that he did say it,” Giuliani said Sunday. “Which is the truth?”

  2. Sally Hemings says:

    “Nothing is so mistaken as the supposition, that a person is to extricate himself from a difficulty, by intrigue, by chicanery, by dissimulation, by trimming, by an untruth, by an injustice. This increases the difficulties ten fold; and those who pursue these methods, get themselves so involved at length, that they can turn no way but their infamy becomes more exposed. It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions.” Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to his nephew Peter Carr, Aug. 19, 1785. http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/let31.asp
