President Trump’s criminal defense lawyer just admitted that his presidential campaign illegally coordinated with the Russian government in a stunning, televised reversal.
Rudy Giuliani was a Trump campaign surrogate, who quit his law firm to be the president’s defense attorney last year. Since then, Rudy’s wacky television appearances have incriminated his client in the Stormy Daniels case and tossed the Trump campaign right under the bus.
Last night, Giuliani delivered a massive flip-flop on the topic of coordination between the Trump campaign and Putin’s regime to CNN’s Chris Cuomo: (video embedded below)
“I never said there was no collusion’ between Trump campaign and Russia,” Giuliani said.
“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 D.N.C.”
Of course, Giuliani said that there was no illegal activity between the Trump Campaign and Russia in the past, and declared falsely “collusion is not a crime” when it’s just a generic term to describe illegal coordination.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) mocked Giuliani’s sad evolution of poor excuses to cover up Trump’s Russian help in the 2016 election with a viral tweet.
The collusion evolution, by Rudy Giuliani:
– There was no collusion.
– Even if there was collusion, it‘s not a crime.
– Truth isn’t truth.
– It happened a long time ago.
– I never said there was no collusion.
– I said no collusion…with the President of the United States.

Last summer, Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted the members of Russia’s Internet Research Agency for spending $12 million of their $36 million budget from 2016-2018 to help Trump during the last presidential election.
Last week, Paul Manafort’s lawyers admitted that their client, Trump’s former campaign chairman delivered internal polling data to a longtime deputy trained by Russian military intelligence whom prosecutors say is a spy.
If Manafort had only delivered internal poll data to an American for them to secretly spend $12 million in coordination with the presidential campaign, and knowingly not reported that as a donation or to list the expenses, it would be a serious felony violation of America’s election laws.
Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia and he is a notoriously egocentric, micromanager.
Rudy Giuliani’s admission last night is the latest crack in the wall of lies erected by Donald Trump around his treasonously illegal scheme to work with the government of Russia to spread propaganda that swayed American voters to elect him as President.
