On Friday, shortly after a grand jury convened by special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials in connection with the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computer network during the 2016 election, Giuliani posted a tweet claiming the news proved Trump was “completely innocent.”
The indictments Rod Rosenstein announced are good news for all Americans. The Russians are nailed. No Americans are involved. Time for Mueller to end this pursuit of the President and say President Trump is completely innocent.

Of course, many Twitter users disagreed strongly with Giuliani and made some cogent points that the former New York City mayor will probably ignore.
Rudy Giuliani is lying to you. Today’s indictment of 12 Russians specifically mentions that the Russians were in communication with "a person who was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump." https://t.co/r3vqdXkOqE

No Americans involved? A congressional candidate received info on opponent. A person in contact with Trump campaign corresponds with GRU Guccifer? What do you mean?

He didn’t say no Americans involved.
He said they weren’t in this indictment.
