'Collusion is not a crime'

The American firebrand claimed there has been no collusion between his campaign and Russia

Mr Trump tweeted: "Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn't matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!"

"There is no collusion, and even if there was, it's not a crime".

Trump's new line of defence might be technically correct as even former FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired, said collusion "is not actually a thing that exists under the federal laws of the United States".

Meanwhile, Jay Sekulow, another of Trump's personal lawyers, told Fox News on Tuesday that Mueller's Russian Federation investigation will find no evidence of collusion, before also stating that collusion is not a crime.

In an interview with The New York Times last December, Trump repeatedly asserted that his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation, while noting briefly that collusion is not illegal.

"You start analysing the crime, the hacking is the crime". The hacking is the crime, ' he concluded. "The President didn't hack", Giuliani told CNN.

Giuliani would also appear on "Fox & Friends" on Monday to offer a similar claim.

'So I said today that there was no collusion therefore - and that collusion also is no crime.

"Whatever his conclusion is on the issue of collusion, I will stand by it", Durbin said. Now why do I say that?

U.S. President Donald Trump has lashed out at Robert Mueller, the Special Counsel probing Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election. Of course not, ' Giuliani said.

Trump regularly repeats the denial on Twitter and in remarks.

The Trump legal team is open to Mueller interviewing Trump with questions related to "an area of collusion, not obstruction", Giuliani said. The President has said he would like to sit down with Mueller if he perceived he would be treated fairly. "And Giuliani is trying to confuse and distract, playing word games, but at the end of the day, the special counsel is going to proceed methodically and meticulously in making the case".

The president - along with allies in conservative media - has launched a long PR campaign against the Mueller probe, which he claims is biased and pursuing erroneous claims of collusion between his campaign team and Moscow.

'The president has always had a soft spot for Cohen. "And so I'm not aware of any disqualifying conflict of interest".

The New York Times, in January article detailing an attempt by Trump to fire Mueller a year ago that the President ultimately backed off from, said Trump claimed one of Mueller's conflicts stemmed from a dispute over fees at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia.

The message marked the first time Mr Trump publicly elaborated on prior vague claims of conflicts of interest.

Giuliani further denied the involvement of Trump's presidential campaign's former chairman, Paul Manafort, in intimate business relations with the US President, CNN reported.

In the tweets, Trump largely resurfaced previous issues he has with the investigation, claiming Mueller personally has conflicts of interest - including a "contentious business relationship" - that should preclude him from running the investigation, accusing Mueller of bringing on too many Democratic investigators, and making a false claim about the origin of the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump also argued Mueller could not be impartial in the probe because he worked for a law firm that had represented Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. "Now, we've got the Cohen (tapes)". 'Sounds suspicious, doesn't it?' he added.
