Trump repeats Giuliani defense: 'Collusion is not a crime'

Legal experts, however, have repeatedly said that anyone found collaborating with Russian Federation on the 2016 election could be charged with other crimes, such as conspiracy, and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation has not concluded.

Mueller, 14 months into his probe, has secured guilty pleas from a handful of Trump aides for lying to investigators about their links to Russia and indicted 12 Russian military intelligence officials for allegedly hacking into the computers of Democratic officials supporting Clinton and releasing their emails through WikiLeaks. I mean, really? These are synonyms.

Trump didn't say what those conflicts were, but he said he turned down Mueller to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a second time before Mueller was appointed special counsel, and that James Comey, whom Trump fired as Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, is Mueller's "close friend".

Swan quotes Giuliani saying: "Why don't you write a report and show us what you have, because they don't have a g--mn thing".

Mueller might decide, for example, that a crime was committed if he finds evidence that an American was involved in the hack of Democrats, either by soliciting it or paying someone to do it.

Baldwin transitioned to Giuliani's appearance on New Day in which he first hinted that collusion may not be a crime and asked Toobin what Giuliani might "be trying to get out ahead of in this case" by redefining the goalposts, as it were.

Former New York City mayor-turned-Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said Monday night that he will likely not allow Trump to be interviewed by anyone on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team because the Russian Federation investigation is not legitimate. He said he has a "sense" that Mueller is getting to the end of his investigation.

Rudy Giuliani launched a fresh defense of the US President on Monday. No collusion, no obstruction. "This is a theater of the absurd", Giuliani said.

Dershowitz said to pay attention to whether the prosecution hints at Manafort's relationship with Trump.

Should Manafort be convicted, the investigation by Mr Mueller could gain some momentum. I've seen him a number of times.

Fox News reported: "Similarly, Dershowitz said Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen is also "in a squeeze" and may have to provide evidence against Trump for a "better deal.' He said witnesses like that sometimes end up 'composing" evidence in a bid for reduced charges or a lesser sentence".
