Trump opens window into his rage with Mueller attack

Howard TerryAug 03, 2018

"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.

Giuliani's comments come as Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort's trial begins.

The president's tweet comes one day after his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said he does not think collusion with Russian Federation would be considered a crime. Well, the President didn't hack! "He didn't pay them for hacking".

Giuliani made headlines Monday when he gave a series of rambling TV interviews in which he stated that "collusion is not a crime".

It's true that in the US legal code there is no crime called "collusion".

According the reports of CNN, the inquiry was commenced in July 2016 when Australian officials had tipped the Federal Bureau of Investigation that George Papadopoulos, who is a former member of the foreign policy advisory panel to Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, informed them about alleged Russian meddling with Hillary Clinton. Mueller is also investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation and whether Trump has obstructed justice.

President Donald Trump listens during a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in the Oval Office of the White House, Monday, July 30, 2018, in Washington.

"You know, I'm not really sure", Toobin replied. I've seen him a number of times.

"I can't tell you whether he would pardon him or not", Giuliani told CNN "New Day" co-anchor Alisyn Camerota, adding, "I can't take away from the President, nor would I, the discretion to pardon anyone".

Donald Trump Jr., who arranged the meeting on behalf of the campaign, has insisted for a year that he never informed his father about the meeting.

But the new memo reported by Waas appears to directly contradict the assertions by Trump's lawyers in the letter to Mueller.

"Trump thinks he's saying too much", a Republican close to the White House told Sherman, while another added that although the president "likes that Rudy is a fighter", he's learned that the fight comes with strings attached. And I didn't get the impression that Rudy Giuliani was, like, intentionally moving the goalpost.

What Rosenberg is pointing out is the fact that even though "collusion" isn't the word that official criminal statutes use to define a number of potential crimes, the acts that create collusion, in this circumstance, would very well be a crime - defined as a conspiracy.

According to Waas, "people familiar with the matter" have told him that both Priebus and McGahn also testified to Special Counsel Robert Mueller that they personally provided this information to Trump during a January 26, 2017 meeting. I say that to attack the legitimacy of the investigation, ' Giuliani said. The president has also used his Twitter to allege partisan bias among Mueller's investigative team, which he has dubbed the "13 angry Democrats".

And given that, Giuliani went on to say, then it doesn't matter if Trump or members of his presidential campaign actually "colluded" with Russians to interfere in the 2016 election. It's the first trial stemming from Mueller's special investigation.
