Trump rails against Mueller in Sunday tweetstorm

Rudy Giuliani keeps moving the bar on the Mueller investigation

Trump echoed comments by one of his lawyers, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, about collusion not specifically being an offense in the USA legal code.

"Hacking by foreign entities or anyone in the American campaign is assisting is a crime", he continued.

Christine Todd Whitman, a Republican, says that it is "extraordinarily offensive" for President Donald Trump to argue that collusion is not a crime. "This morning I tweeted, 'Collusion is not a crime, ' and it worked", he said. So, either the former Mayor of NY city is intentionally creating confusion by making seemingly contradictory statements from those of President Trump every week, or he's every bit as much of a goofball as he's portrayed himself to be in recent months.

"I don't even know if that's a crime - colluding with Russians", Giuliani said on CNN. "The hacking is the crime and the President didn't hack". "The president didn't hack", Giuliani said on CNN.

President Donald Trump should not sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said.

"Collusion is not a crime", he tweeted Tuesday.

The progress of Paul Manafort's trial and the evidence presented during it will show the extent to which Special Counsel Mueller is looking at Trump's election campaign.

THE FACTS: It is correct to say that election collusion isn't a precise legal term.

Critics saw Giuliani's statements as indicative that the president's defense against accusations of working with Russian contacts to help him win the election is rapidly unraveling. Cohen past year testified to two congressional committees on Russian election interference and did not say Trump had advance knowledge of the meeting, a source told CNN. On Friday, Trump tweeted that he "did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr".

Giuliani said that he believes they managed to "shut it down" and help kill the story, and speculated the journalists had also found other reasons not to run the item.

The question of whether President Trump obstructed justice in the FBI's investigation of Michael Flynn has always hinged on his familiarity with the details of that probe - and when he learned them. He said about ten of them feature Cohen and reporters, while another one is a tape of Trump, Cohen and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.
