Trump rails against Mueller in Sunday tweetstorm

Trump rails against Mueller in Sunday tweetstorm

Paul Manafort on Tuesday became the first to face prosecutors under special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 election.

Baldwin transitioned to Giuliani's appearance on New Day in which he first hinted that collusion may not be a crime and asked Toobin what Giuliani might "be trying to get out ahead of in this case" by redefining the goalposts, as it were.

A new report out Tuesday in the New York Review of Books suggests Trump knew that there was an ongoing criminal investigation into Flynn and his interactions with Russian officials when he asked then-FBI director James Comey on February 14, 2017 to let Flynn "go".

But Giuliani's comments on Monday - which came a day after Trump backer and former New Jersey Gov.

On Monday, Rudy Giuliani - Trump's attorney - also asserted on television that "collusion is not a crime", and declared Trump "absolutely innocent".

Donald Trump has said "collusion is not a crime" ahead of the first trial in the Russian Federation investigation. "The president didn't hack", Giuliani said on CNN.

"I think they're getting closer to knowing that the truth's going to come out, that there was activities with the Trump campaign in Russian Federation in releasing those hacks and guiding them to the states and the localities where they came from".

Rudy Giuliani on Monday claimed collusion is not a crime in connection with the investigation into Russian election interference in 2016.

Collusion is not a legal term, but the term could be used to describe certain interactions between a presidential campaign and a foreign government that are illegal under existing statutes.

Acknowledging that Manafort's trial begins on Tuesday, Giuliani said, "Right, and he has no information incriminating of the president - I know that for a fact".

"I truly believe that this President wants to sit down and tell Bob Mueller his story, but his attorneys don't want him to do it", he said. He didn't say the president knew about it.

Should Manafort be convicted, the investigation by Mr Mueller could gain some momentum. That's the meeting that Michael Cohen says the president was not ... or the president knew about ahead of time, but you say the president was not there.

Giuliani said that, as a legal matter, there is no obstruction of justice claim. Cohen has not claimed this publicly; it sounds as though it occurred in some communication between his lawyers and the Trump legal team. It's one that would have kept me out of the investigation.

"Is Robert Mueller ever going to release his conflicts of interest with respect to President Trump, including the fact that we had a very nasty & contentious business relationship, I turned him down to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation (one day before appointment as S.C.) & Comey is his close friend", Trump said in a second tweet.
