Media Pretends that Collusion Is a Crime

Giuliani points out that collusion is not a crime and the insane media claims that contradicts Trump’s denial of collusion.

We’ve known ever since the term was invented that Russian collusion wasn’t a crime. Yet recently Rudy Giuliani pointed that out and now the media pretends that he is giving inconsistent testimony! The context was allegations about the meeting in Trump Tower which simply involved talking, not hacking anyone or coordinating with Facebook ads.

No it was not a crime and no there’s no evidence that Donald Trump was involved in it! Both things can be true.

CNBC reports, “Trump repeatedly denied collusion. Now his lawyer Rudy Giuliani says: ‘Collusion is not a crime.’

President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, asserted Monday that “collusion is not a crime,” and declared that the president is “absolutely innocent.”

“I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime,” Giuliani said in an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.” “Collusion is not a crime.”

Trump has repeatedly denied there was collusion between his campaign and Russia during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. As recently as Sunday, the president took to Twitter to repeat the claim.

“There is No Collusion!” Trump wrote, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s attack on the election.

Giuliani expanded on his remarks in an interview with CNN. “The hacking is the crime,” Giuliani told the network. “The president didn’t hack.”

Following the interview on CNN, Giuliani responded to a post on Twitter that suggested the media was “nitpicking and twisting” his comments.

Giuliani called the post an “excellent observation.”

“You can investigate an innocent person forever and forever and find nothing. […] No collusion, no obstruction. President Trump did nothing wrong,” Giuliani wrote in response.

Giuliani addressed reports that Michael Cohen, the president’s former lawyer and fixer, was prepared to tell Mueller that Trump knew about a June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower between the president’s senior campaign staff, including his eldest son Donald Trump Jr. and then-campaign chief Paul Manafort, and a Russian lawyer who was allegedly offering dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
