Trump Attorney No Longer Denying Campaign Colluded with Russia

HeadlineJan 17, 2019

President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani falsely claimed Wednesday that he “never said there was no collusion” between Russia and President Trump’s 2016 campaign. Giuliani was speaking to CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

Rudy Giuliani: “I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign.”

Chris Cuomo: “Yes, you have.”

Rudy Giuliani: “I have no idea if there—I have not. 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 could commit here—conspired with the Russians to hack the DNC.”

Giuliani’s statement directly contradicts his past comments—made as recently as last July—stating that nobody in the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Giuliani’s shifting claims came amid new revelations about former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort’s efforts to share internal polling data with a suspected Russian intelligence operative named Konstantin Kilimnik.
