Giuliani Can't Say No One Colluded, Only That Trump Didn't

Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the president never colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign, at the same time denying ever saying that no one on the campaign did so.

“I never said there was no collusion between the campaign, or people in the campaign,” Giuliani said during an interview on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” show Wednesday night.

“I said the president of the United States. There is not a single bit of evidence the president of the United States committed the only crime you can commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the DNC,” he added, referring to the Democratic National Committee.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, whether Trump or any of his associates conspired in the operation and whether Trump obstructed justice.

Giuliani appeared to contradict his client’s past statements. Trump has repeatedly used the phrase “no collusion” on Twitter and in media interviews in denying his campaign was involved with any Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election.
