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

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

"You probably won't find the crime bank heist in the criminal code but bank robbery is a crime too, and so I am sort of perplexed that it has come down to synonyms". "The President didn't hack".

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

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said in a pair of interviews on Monday morning that he was at a loss for how colluding with the Russians would be categorized as a crime.

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".

Appearing on Fox News' Hannity, Giuliani said a potential Trump-Mueller interview is "highly unlikely" because he would be walking into a perjury trap.

CNN reported last Thursday that Mr Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen is prepared to tell federal investigators that Mr Trump knew and approved of the Trump Tower meeting where a Russian lawyer with links to the Kremlin was expected to deliver damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

The Wales global said on Wednesday that talks are taking place with the club, who want to tie him down to a new long-term deal. The 31-year-old, who was a half-time substitute, had a remarkable debut in Singapore after signing from Betis.

The president believes it's time for special counsel Robert Mueller, who was supposed to be investigating Democrat claims of Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation, either to put up or shut up.

Critics saw Giuliani's statements as indicative that the president's defense against accusations of working with Russian contacts to help him win the election is rapidly unraveling.

The Trump team began publicly arguing this assertion since late previous year.

It's "impossible" that Donald Trump didn't know about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting. Trump said there was "No Collusion!" and described Mueller's investigation as a "rigged witch hunt" and "an illegal Scam!" He said about ten of them feature Cohen and reporters, while another one is a tape of Trump, Cohen and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has said he'd be willing to go on the record with the special counsel and say the president did indeed know about the meeting. "Your client, Trump, is under investigation by the Special Counsel for both".

In addition to possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, Mueller is also looking at whether Trump has tried to obstruct the investigation.
