Rudy Giuliani keeps moving the bar on the Mueller investigation

President Trump has repeatedly denied any accusations of collusion, and has branded the Mueller investigation a politically motivated "Witch Hunt", started by his political opponents on a false premise.

He's correct in that the word "collusion" may not be used in any legal textbooks-we must be thinking of "conspiracy".

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". It is illegal, however, to conspire to violate laws, including ones barring foreign participation in elections.

Speaking to CNN "New Day" co-host Alisyn Camerota, Giuliani first downplayed the president's relationship with his embroiled former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, who faces charges resulting from the Mueller probe.

According to Waas, "people familiar with the matter" have told him that both Priebus and McGahn also testified to Special Counsel Robert Mueller that they personally provided this information to Trump during a January 26, 2017 meeting.

US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to say that collusion isn't a crime, and that he never colluded with anyone.

Rudy Giuliani is purposely exchanging "Conspiracy" for "Collusion" to intertwine a legal term of art with a political one.

Meanwhile, Jay Sekulow, another of Trump's personal lawyers, told Fox News on Tuesday that Mueller's Russian Federation investigation will find no evidence of collusion, before also stating that collusion is not a crime.

Colbert spent his monologue dragging Rudy Giuliani's weird TV behavior and his seeming inability to understand whether or not the President had broken any laws with his dealings with Russian Federation. "Well, that's not just technically correct".

"I always have to leave the option open as a lawyer in case they come across with something that really startles us or fills some of the things that we feel are important", he said.

Guy Benson bluntly asked whether Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting.

"I think you're probably going to see indictments against both of those people".

A knowledgeable source told NBC News that Cohen is willing to inform Mueller that Trump Jr. told his father about the meeting, contradicting Trump Jr.'s congressional testimony in May 2017. Neither was such a session mentioned in their testimony to the Senate judiciary committee, which has been made public.
