Giuliani: Mueller's Russia Probe is Not a Legitimate Investigation

President Donald Trump has spent more than a year deflecting accusations that his 2016 campaign colluded with Russian Federation to win-but his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, employed a new tactic on Monday by declaring he's not sure if collusion with a foreign power during a US presidential campaign is a crime. Three: "It's a crime to steal things, whether you steal objects, like everything that was ripped off in Watergate, or you steal email, which is what is at issue in Mueller's latest indictment".

While collusion is not a technical legal charge, Mueller is probing any coordination between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, and could bring conspiracy charges if he finds that any campaign member worked with Russia to break US law.

Giuliani said that the only crime present regarding the Russians is hacking, and it'd be "ridiculous" to think that Trump was involved.

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".

"I don't even know if that's a crime, colluding about Russians". "'Collusion" and "coordination' are not legally relevant terms, but they are often used as shorthand to refer to such a criminal conspiracy", it said.

But Mr Giuliani was persuaded to continue with the fiery interview at the compromise of being offered some coffee. "The president didn't hack", Giuliani said on CNN.

Pep Guardiola lavished praise on Manchester City despite their 2-1 International Champions Cup loss to Liverpool on Wednesday. He was quoted on the Manchester City official website as saying: "It was incredible, what we did.

Giuliani also vaguely questioned Mueller's fitness to lead the investigation, which he took over after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey a year ago.

But there are plenty of specific laws on the books that could apply if Trump's presidential campaign is found to have collaborated with Moscow, including a conspiracy to defraud the United States.

That came after a confusing Monday morning media tour by Giuliani, during which he first floated his collusion as legal theory.

"I'm not sure I know what exactly what the conflict is", Giuliani said.

"Right now I'm telling him 'no way, '" he said, asking why Trump would testify in an investigation that has "no legitimacy".
