Trump Now Says 'Collusion Is Not A Crime'

Trump Now Says 'Collusion Is Not A Crime' Trump Now Says 'Collusion Is Not A Crime'

Donald Trump appears to fear an obstruction of justice investigation reportedly being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, even more than he fears Mueller's Russian Federation collusion investigation, with Trump's public mouthpiece and defense lawyer Rudy Giuliani saying that Trump will refuse to answer any questions about obstruction of justice from Mueller, as Bloomberg News reported.

President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday morning that "collusion is not a crime" and claimed "there was No Collusion", except by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party.

Meanwhile, Jay Sekulow, another of Trump's personal lawyers, told Fox News on Tuesday that Mueller's Russian Federation investigation will find no evidence of collusion, before also stating that collusion is not a crime.

A new investigative report says a memo proves that Donald Trump knew he was obstructing justice when he tried to shut down the FBI investigation into Michael Flynn.

The former NY mayor went on to say, "They can squeeze him, [but] Paul Manafort does not know anything...what I'm saying is, he was not involved with intimate business relationships with Donald Trump".

"Rudy Giuliani was correct - collusion is not a crime", Sekulow said.

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. Instead, he shifted the conversation by noting that the president did not "pay them for hacking", which he said was the real offense.

Michael Cohen, Trump's former personal attorney, told CNN that Trump definitely knew about the Trump Tower meeting in 2016.

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

Giuliani told Sean Hannity that his team had moved away from allowing the president to answer even "a few limited questions on collusion". As the first trial in the 14-month Russian Federation probe, the case throws a fresh spotlight on an investigation that has dogged Trump's presidency. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) wrote on Twitter on Monday, citing a reference in the federal code.

Rudy Giuliani is purposely exchanging "Conspiracy" for "Collusion" to intertwine a legal term of art with a political one.

Manafort's trial, in which he faces charges on 18 counts of violating tax and banking laws, is a high-profile test of the Mueller team's investigation into Russian election interference in 2016.

So I know what you're thinking: why should we trust this guy who has ties to someone Trump has accused of bias and dishonesty? He said about ten of them feature Cohen and reporters, while another one is a tape of Trump, Cohen and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.
