Ex-FBI Official: Yes Rudy, Collusion is 'Absolutely a Crime'

U.S. President Donald Trump walks behind his desk in the Oval Office during a swearing in ceremony for new U.S. Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie at the White House in Washington

"And now that there is substantial evidence that there were at least some contacts between the Trump campaign and the Russians, maybe the sort of next line of defense is, well, maybe there was collusion, but collusion itself is not a crime".

Legal experts, however, have repeatedly said that anyone found collaborating with Russian Federation on the 2016 election could be charged with other crimes, such as conspiracy, and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation has not concluded.

As people who have been keeping up with the news know, Trump is a man with a deep understanding of the English language, focused on the specifics of semantics.

Giuliani said the now-public Trump-Cohen tape is the only one involving the president. Prosecutors say Manafort hid millions of dollars in income from lobbying for Ukrainian politicians, failed to pay taxes while spending the money on USA real estate and luxury purchases and lied to banks to take out more than $20 million in loans.

"We're mindful of the fact that we'd like to get [the investigation] over with by September". Mueller has even suggested recently that the President's tweets will be examined for evidence of obstruction.

The trial of his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, on tax and bank fraud charges was scheduled to begin in Virginia on Tuesday.

Rosenberg told MSNBC: "You probably won't find the word bank heist in the criminal code, but bank robbery is a crime, too, and so I'm sort of perplexed that it's come down to synonyms".

Giuliani said that the only crime present regarding the Russians is hacking, and it'd be "ridiculous" to think that Trump was involved.

Legal experts say Giuliani and Trump have a point: there is no federal law or statue making campaign collusion a crime.

Earlier Monday on Fox and Friends, Giuliani tore into Michael Cohen over his secretly recorded conversation with President Trump, and suggested someone may have tampered with the tape. "There's not a single stitch of evidence of collusion.and the obstruction thing is insane".

He said Trump will not agree to a sit-down with Mueller until certain parameters are set.

"I'm "no" on a sit-down until we get ironed out exactly what [Mueller's officials] want to do", Giuliani said. I've seen him a number of times.
