But there's a great value to Giuliani's appearances. "This is a theater of the absurd", Giuliani said. "The president didn't hack". However, the Russia investigation began in July 2016 when the FBI reacted to a tip from Australian officials who said George Papadopoulos told them about alleged Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton, according to the Times.
"Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn't matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!". So collusion is not only a crime; collusion involves at least four crimes.
"That crime is not called collusion in the law books, but illegal campaign contributions by the foreign countries, foreign companies, that would be a crime".
Appearing on Fox & Friends, the former New York City mayor downplayed any possible connection between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
"Yeah, he has to be, and Trump is going to be okay because at the end of the day, Giuliani is defending him vehemently".
"Mueller isn't investigating 'collusion.' He is investigating possible coordination between the campaign and the Russians, particularly any actual crimes committed in the context of that coordination", Moss said.
Trump has long maintained there was "no collusion" between the Kremlin and his campaign. As a number of legal experts have pointed out, there are a variety of crimes that could have been committed if a campaign cooperated with a foreign government.
Instead, Comey continued, the question is whether any Americans conspired with a foreign government to commit crimes against the United States, which is a crime.
First they said nobody on the campaign ever talked to any Russians.
Rudy Giuliani is purposely exchanging "Conspiracy" for "Collusion" to intertwine a legal term of art with a political one.
Rudy Giuliani launched a fresh defense of the US President on Monday.
Trump's allies also sought to shred the credibility of Cohen, after the President's former confidant turned against him, and following the airing last week of a tape obtained by CNN on which the two men discussed how they would buy the rights to a Playboy model's story about an alleged affair Trump had with her years before he turned to politics.
"No, it's starting to get useless", he added.
CAMEROTA: And that's a real meeting.
Giuliani said the "jury" in the case is the American people and public opinion has shifted by 22 points against the Mueller probe and in favor of the president. "For the conspiracy charge to succeed, it is not required that every participant in the conspiracy play the same substantive role", he said. "Some of that was Jared Kushner's responsibility, some of it was Donald Junior", said Cohen, a Democrat who represents Tennessee's 9th Congressional District in Memphis.
Download, enjoy and please give us a review! It is not clear whether Cohen has firsthand knowledge of what or when Trump was told about the meeting.
Reporter Murray Waas said that he reviewed a White House memo that "explicitly states that when Trump pressured Comey he had just been told by two of his top aides - his then chief of staff Reince Priebus and his White House counsel Don McGahn - that Flynn was under criminal investigation".
In and of itself, that meeting might not mean much. "I think you're going to find it very informative and very, very interesting". I am telling [inaudible 00:01:48] that meeting didn't take place, never happened.
