Trump Calls Out Mueller for 'Conflicts of Interest'

  • The American firebrand claimed there has been no collusion between his campaign and Russia

The president's comments in a morning tweet appeared created to address widespread confusion over Giuliani's intentions during cable television appearances on Monday.

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

"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.

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.

Asked about Paul Manafort's brief time as Trump's campaign manager, Giuliani told CNN's Alisyn Camerota, "Four months, they're not going to be colluding with Russia, which I don't even know if that's a crime, colluding about Russians". You start analyzing the crime - hacking is the crime... "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. He didn't pay for the hacking". The timing of the president's statements in Doral, Florida, urging the Russians to go find the missing emails [of Hillary Clinton] or hack into the DNC computers.

During a call into Fox News later Monday, Giuliani sought to push back against that notion, saying he was making the same point that he had "over and over" that the word "collusion" doesn't appear in the criminal code. Trump wrote on Twitter.




"It seems to me his default position is to lie", Mr Giuliani said of Mr Cohen, who in May he said was an "honest, honourable lawyer".

Not only did Trump know that Flynn was under criminal investigation by the FBI, but he also knew the specific nature of Flynn's crime, according to Waas.

Both approaches were rubbished by Giuliani on Monday.

While the main areas of Mueller's investigation are Russia's actions during the 2016 presidential election and any attempts by Trump to obstruct justice, none of those topics are expected to come up in Manafort's trial.

"If these folks don't know that collusion and conspiracy are synonyms for one another and this is a legal strategy, then they might want to consider changing horses in this race", Rosenberg added on Monday.
