‘Collusion Is Not a Crime’

‘Collusion Is Not a Crime’

The meeting has become a central focus of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether anyone within Trump's campaign colluded with Russia's meddling in the last United States presidential election.

"You start analyzing the crime-the hacking is the crime.The President didn't hack". Trump added that it "doesn't matter", because his campaign had not colluded with Russian Federation.

"McGahn also relayed to (Trump) that Flynn had told the Federal Bureau of Investigation the same false story he'd earlier told (Vice President Mike) Pence (that Flynn had never spoken to Kislyak about sanctions)", Waas wrote.

On Monday, Meyers reminded his viewers that Trump said the hacker could be "some guy in New Jersey". "Collusion is not a crime".

THE FACTS: It is correct to say that election collusion isn't a precise legal term.

Legal experts said that working with a foreign national with the intent of influencing a USA election could violate multiple laws.

A few months ago, the tenacious hound sniffed out 77 kilos of cocaine placed deep inside an industrial machine. She is so darn good at uncovering tons of cocaine that the powerful Urabeños mafia wants her dead.

So far, special counsel Robert Mueller has accused the Russians of hacking into Democrats' computers and stealing emails, as well as trying to stoke USA tensions before the 2016 election using social media.

At the outset of an appearance on Fox News, Giuliani said he had been "sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime".

Trump has reluctantly acknowledged Russian interference in the election, but has called the investigation "a big hoax" to explain his upset victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

"The odds are against it, but I wouldn't be shocked, because he wants to do it", Giuliani said. "Well, that's not just technically correct". "I suspect that we'll see that in some of his rulings". Michael Cohen, Trump's former personal attorney, claims the president knew in advance about the meeting, CNN reported last week. Then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, also participated in that meeting.

Trump held a private meeting with Comey on February 14, 2017, in the Oval Office. "Your client, Trump, is under investigation by the Special Counsel for both". He also appeared to suggest that another meeting had occurred at some point before the Trump Tower meeting, in which participants purportedly discussed "strategy" for the meeting with the Russians, before attempting to clarify later in the day that there had been no strategy session.

On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon tackled the collusion question in character as Trump, anchoring the Trump News Network.
