As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by DAILYCALLER.COM:
President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said “collusion is not a crime” on Fox News Monday.
“I’ve been sitting here, looking in the federal code, trying to find collusion as a crime. Collusion is not a crime. Everything that’s been released so far shows the president absolutely innocent. He didn’t do anything wrong.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“Last two tapes are evidence in his favor, he wants to a transaction by check — wants to do a corporate transaction. Perfectly legal. The second one — he describes in great detail the Stormy Daniels deal to Cuomo, and he says the president didn’t know about it. The president didn’t have the money. I paid for it myself. I wasn’t a campaign contribution.”
Giuliani made a similar statement on CNN Monday morning as well, and Twitter has exploded with backlash over the statement.
GIULIANI argues ***collusion is not a crime***: “I don’t even know if that’s a crime — colluding with Russians. Hacking is the crime. The president didn’t hack! He didn’t pay for the hacking.” pic.twitter.com/QMenE1qzxx

NEW: Giuliani just moved the goal posts in 2 big ways on Fox & CNN :
1. He’s no longer claiming Trump didn’t collude with Russia. He’s claiming “collusion is not a crime.”
2. He’s not saying Trump did not know abt 2016 Russia mtg in advance. He’s saying Trump did not ATTEND it.

If rudy Giuliani were my father I would immediately take away his car keys and remove all dangerous implements from his condo. And then figure out what assisted living he might need.

Based on Rudy Giuliani’s tired, nervous performance right now on @cnn, I’m thinking it’s going to be a very bad week ahead for Donald & Co.

Note to Giuliani: Look it up—Colluding to violate the law is conspiracy. 18 U.S.C. 371. Obstructing Justice also is criminal. 18 U.S.C. 1503. Your client, Trump, is under investigation by the Special Counsel for both. Bombast & bullying won’t make it (or him) go away. https://t.co/DU3AY5XluG
