‘Collusion Is Not a Crime’

‘Collusion Is Not a Crime’

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.

The former New York City mayor and USA attorney, and now Trump, appear to be trying to influence public opinion about the Justice Department's Russian Federation probe of possible campaign coordination and whether Trump obstructed justice since taking office with moves related to the investigation, including firing then-FBI Director James Comey.

Pointing to Manafort's short stint as Trump's campaign manager, Giuliani 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".

Trump himself also said in a New York Times interview in December, "There is no collusion, and even if there was, it's not a crime".

Mr Trump's tweet comes after his lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Fox News "collusion is not a crime".

Collusion is not technically a legal charge, but Mr Mueller could bring conspiracy charges if he believes there was such work by campaign managers with Russian Federation. "Hacking is the crime".

"He has the conflict, not the president", Giuliani said.

"Colluding with foreigners to impact a USA election is a crime", explained MSNBC host Ari Melber Tuesday night.

Cordero went on to add that criminal violations could, however, emerge if there was evidence of hacking or a violation of campaign finance laws related to Mueller's investigation.

A guest on Melber's show later pointed to a fifth possible collusion crime: bribery of public officials.

After showing a video clip of Giuliani saying that, "Late Night" host Seth Meyers declared, "Nothing makes me happier than imagining Donald Trump personally doing the hack". But its outcome is being watched closely since it is the first case brought by Mueller's legal team that has gone to trial. Trump and his son have denied that the president knew about the meeting in advance.

A Manafort conviction would give momentum to Mueller, who has indicted or secured guilty pleas from 32 people and three companies since the probe began.
