Trump Lawyer: Odds Against President Testifying in Russia Probe

Trump Lawyer: Odds Against President Testifying in Russia Probe

"When I said today that there was no collusion and that collusion also is no crime, I've been saying that from the very beginning", he said, reacting to new reports that he was attempting to change the narrative.

In a later interview on CNN, Giuliani again said that collusion was not a crime.

The president's comments in a morning tweet appeared created to address widespread confusion over Giuliani's intentions during cable television appearances on Monday. However, even Gollum knew in his heart that stealing was a crime, so perhaps he could teach Giuliani a thing or two about what is or isn't illegal.

In Trump's case, collusion is not a crime-it's many crimes. "He didn't pay for the hacking".

President Trump speaks about the economy during a statement on the South Lawn of the White House on Friday. And, finally, Trump asked, "why isn't Mueller looking at all of the criminal activity & real Russian Collusion on the Democrats side- Podesta, Dossier?"

Nevertheless, a debate continued on the Tuesday morning cable shows about whether Giuliani was "moving the goal posts".

"Colluding about Russians ― I'm not sure that's even a crime", Giuliani told CNN's Alisyn Camerota.

The president believes it's time for special counsel Robert Mueller, who was supposed to be investigating Democrat claims of Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation, either to put up or shut up. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) wrote on Twitter on Monday, citing a reference in the federal code.

Former federal prosecutor Berit Berger noted that "obstruction of justice can come in many different ways", and that can include tweets "as long as the intent is there". "Bombast & bullying won't make it (or him) go away". Mueller has already accused Trump's former campaign chairman and another top aide of working as foreign agents for Ukrainian interests and funneling millions of dollars from the work into offshore accounts used to fund lavish lifestyles. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) expressed exasperation with Giuliani's media interviews.

Giuliani also vaguely questioned Mueller's fitness to lead the investigation, which he took over after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey a year ago.
