Trump Echoes Giuliani: 'Collusion Is Not A Crime'

01 Agosto, 2018, 04:34 | Autor: Buinton Urdiales

President Trump's attorney and close adviser Rudy Giuliani made the cable news rounds Monday morning, claiming that collusion is not necessarily a crime on "Fox and Friends" and CNN's "New Day". "You start analyzing the crime-the hacking is the crime.The President didn't hack".

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.

"Collusion is basically a partnership in crime, which is conspiracy", said Randall Eliason, a former federal prosecutor and a law professor at George Washington University.

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

It then goes into Smeagol/Gollum (with Giuliani's voice) arguing with a reflection of Giuliani as we hear the former New York City mayor say contradictory statements about Cohen.

"I don't even know if that's a crime - colluding with Russians", Giuliani said on CNN.

Giuliani continued that line of defense on CNN.

Rep. Steve Cohen told CNN that he believes President Donald Trump's son and son-in-law will be indicted in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation for communications with Russian Federation during the 2016 elections.

President Trump argued Tuesday that collusion can not be a criminal offense, but he doubled down on denials of any wrongdoing.

While the word "collusion" does not appear in the federal Code of Laws, the fact that it is illegal for a person or group to "conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States" certainly does.

The Trump team began publicly arguing this assertion since late previous year. "'Collusion" and "coordination' are not legally relevant terms, but they are often used as shorthand to refer to such a criminal conspiracy", it said. No collusion, no obstruction.

Giuliani explained that because of the great work Trump's attorneys did early on - providing Mueller with "1.4 million documents" and "32 witnesses" - Trump's legal team is in a position today in which they no longer need to cooperate.

Giuliani also said Mueller has "conflicts of interest". I've seen him a number of times.
