Trump echoes Giuliani defense: 'Collusion is not a crime'

But Trump, a serene man confident in his own innocence, has updated "no collusion!" to "collusion is not a crime".

The Axois column reported Trump recently tweeted twice about Mueller "in terms that were sharper, and with a more personal edge, than the president's usual rants about the 'witch hunt'".

He said: "I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime.Collusion is not a crime".

Asked about former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's upcoming trial, Giuliani told Alisyn Camerota that Mr Manafort "was not involved with intimate business relationships with Donald Trump".

The president's current lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani made this same argument Monday during a CNN interview.

The president has repeatedly since taking office denied that he or his 2016 campaign associates worked with Russian officials or individuals during his race against Democratic foe Hillary Clinton.

Sean Newcomb loses no-hitter with two outs in ninth
I don't mean to offend anybody. "It was just something stupid I did a long time ago and I didn't mean anything by it, for sure". "This is something obviously that can't be happening", he said. "Today I helped do something in the game and I feel good".

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.

Donald Trump continues to deny Russian Federation had any involvement in his 2016 US Presidential campaign. "He said, No. 1, there is no collusion, No. 2, collusion is not a crime, but even if it was a crime, there was no collusion".

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.

Instead, the trial will centre on Manafort's Ukrainian consulting work and only briefly touch on his involvement with the President's campaign. Prosecutors say Manafort hid millions of dollars in income from lobbying for Ukrainian politicians, failed to pay taxes while spending the money on USA real estate and luxury purchases and lied to banks to take out more than $20 million in loans. Prosecutors will also argue that Manafort fraudulently obtained millions more in bank loans, including during his time on the campaign. He said about ten of them feature Cohen and reporters, while another one is a tape of Trump, Cohen and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

Res, who was in charge of construction at Trump Tower and left the Trump Organization in the 1990s, added that Trump always wanted to be "on top of things". He has indicated or secured guilty pleas from 32 people and three companies since the probe into the alleged meddling began 14 months ago.
