Stephanopoulos asked "Is that legal?" Giuliani just laughed.

That's what this election has come down to, folks.

Giuliani also defended Trump's comments at Wednesday's “Commander-in-Chief” forum in which he said ISIS would not have formed if the United States had “taken the oil” from Iraq.

Some experts have since said that taking Iraq's oil following the 2003 U.S. invasion would have violated international law.

But Giuliani told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos: “Of course it’s legal; it’s a war. Until the war is over anything’s legal.”

...said Giuliani, with a hearty laugh.

Giuliani then lied, saying Trump only meant the securing and distribution of the oil. But that's not what he ever says, calling Iraq's oil "the spoils of war" again, just three days ago with Matt Lauer.
