Here is Giuliani's discussion of the matter in the interview:

It's a First Amendment issue, right? It isn't stolen property. I
mean, it is stolen property, but it has a different nature when
it's information. So, let's take the Pentagon Papers. The Pentagon
Papers were stolen property, weren't they? They were stolen from
the Pentagon & given to the New York Times and the Washington Post.
Nobody went to jail in the New York Times and the Washington Post.
We've had revelations during the [George W.] Bush administration,
Abu Ghraib, all of that. It's stolen property, taken from the
government against the law. Once it gets to a media publication,
they can publish it. They can publish it for the purpose of informing
people. You can't put Assange in a different position than that.
He was a guy that communicated. We may not like what he communicates,
but he was a media facility, he was putting that information out.
Every newspaper, station grabbed it and published it.
