Trump didn't know about campaigners' Russian Federation link, says Giuliani

Robert Mueller Trump didn't know about campaigners' Russian Federation link, says Giuliani

"What you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment", Judge T.S. Ellis III said.

US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to say that collusion isn't a crime, and that he never colluded with anyone. "The Robert Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt ... was started by a fraudulent Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC". 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.

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". Giuliani said Trump and senior campaign officials did not know the meeting was taking place. "The president didn't hack", Giuliani said on CNN. "He didn't pay for the hacking". (While we're at it, election "meddling" isn't either.) The U.S. code mostly uses the term "collusion" in antitrust laws to address crimes like price fixing.

President Donald Trump listens during a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in the Oval Office of the White House, Monday, July 30, 2018, in Washington.

"Every good attorney traditionally wants to make sure that their client doesn't make any statements that could come back to cause them some kind of pain in the future", he said, "and that is what his legal team is, I think, recommending, is that the President doesn't sit down".

Brad Ziegler, Jake Diekman traded to Arizona Diamondbacks
The 38-year-old Ziegler pitched for Arizona from 2011 through 2016, compiling a 21-11 record and a 2.49 ERA with 62 saves. According to The Athletic, the Rangers received minor league pitcher Wei-Chieh Huang in return for Diekman, a lefty.

Trump has denied any collusion for months.

Michael Cohen and Donald Trump.

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

Later, Giuliani phoned in to Fox News seeking to clarify his earlier comments, telling anchor Harris Faulkner that "it's a very, very familiar lawyer's argument that...the alternative, that my client didn't do it, and even if he did, it's not a crime". Giuliani added that other people who could corroborate Cohen's account would not do so, and he charged that Cohen was making these claims now because he feels the criminal investigation closing in on him.

While collusion is not a technical legal charge, Mueller is probing any coordination between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, and could bring conspiracy charges if he finds that any campaign member worked with Russia to break US law.
