Rudy Giuliani reportedly has 2 major detractors inside the White House

Rudy Giuliani reportedly has 2 major detractors inside the White House

So if Mueller finds evidence that the 2016 Trump campaign worked with a foreign power to sway the election, then conspiracy - not collusion - would be the charge.

Trump's latest tweets come just days after he launched a separate Twitter attack against Mueller and the Russian Federation investigation.

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

Pressed by Blitzer, Cohen did not offer proof for his assertion, but said "you can see where it's going". Well, the President didn't hack!

Giuliani said he thinks Mueller wants to conclude his now 14-month probe by sometime in September, enough time before the nationwide congressional elections on November 6, "so they can say they didn't interfere in the elections".

Plus: President Trump said on Sunday that he would be willing to shut down the federal government if the Democrats do not agree to Republican demands about funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

"The Order authorized you to conduct 'the investigation confirmed by then-FBI Director James B. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including: (1) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump", Rosenstein noted in an August 2, 2017, memo to Mueller.

It's unclear whether Giuliani's latest line of argument is a strategic change in the Trump team's approach to the allegations, or just another pair of freewheeling interviews from the always outspoken former mayor.

Giuliani further denied the involvement of Trump's presidential campaign's former chairman, Paul Manafort, in intimate business relations with the US President, CNN reported.

He added: "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".

After Mueller's appointment by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a Trump appointee, the Department of Justice determined there was not an ethics conflict for Mueller in the investigation. He's bluffing and he's only got a pair of twos, ' Giuliani added.

Giuliani told Sean Hannity that his team had moved away from allowing the president to answer even "a few limited questions on collusion".

Trump and his surrogates have repeatedly sought to delegitimize the special counsel's investigation by saying there was "no collusion" and calling the special counsel's probe a "witch hunt". It's one that would have kept me out of the investigation.

Mueller's team is looking into whether Trump sought to undermine the Russian Federation investigation by firing FBI Director James Comey and attacking Justice Department officials such as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller. The President's former personal lawyer and fixer says there are other people who can vouch for the fact that Trump knew about the meeting in real time.
