Ex-Trump Organization exec: 'Impossible' Trump didn't know about Trump Tower meeting

Ex-Trump Organization exec: 'Impossible' Trump didn't know about Trump Tower meeting

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".

TRUMP on Twitter Tuesday: "Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn't matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!".

During the controversial interview, Mr Giuliani said he was not sure collusion with Russian Federation would be considered a crime.

In December 2017, Trump told The New York Times that "there is no collusion, and even if there was, it's not a crime".

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

"[Cohen] said that he was in President Trump's office, [and] Donald Trump Jr. walked in and told him about the Russian meeting", Giuliani said. You start analyzing the crime - the hacking is the crime. "The President didn't hack".

Rudy Giuliani launched a fresh defense of the US President on Monday. As Donald Trump's lawyer, he has spoken out about former Trump attorney Michael Cohen and his statements haven't been consistent.

Both approaches were rubbished by Giuliani on Monday. "Because Trump and McGahn knew of Flynn's misstatements to the FBI, they would have understood the legal jeopardy Flynn was in: it is a felony to lie to the FBI-precisely the federal criminal charge Flynn would later plead guilty to". And as Robert Mueller ramps up the pressure and former Trump officials are heading to court - albeit on charges unrelated to Russian Federation - the game is on for the White House PR team to get ahead of criticism aimed at Donald Trump's path to the Oval Office.

Cohen past year testified to two congressional committees on Russian election interference and did not say Trump had advance knowledge of the meeting, a source told CNN.

Giuliani told CNN he was "happy to tell" Mueller that Trump "wasn't at the meeting".

Fox News reported liberal icon Alan Dershowitz speculated that Mueller hopes the charges he filed against Paul Manafort will force the onetime Trump campaign manager to reveal something incriminating about the president.

So I know what you're thinking: why should we trust this guy who has ties to someone Trump has accused of bias and dishonesty?
