"I don't even know if that's a crime, colluding about Russians", Giuliani told CNN in one of the interviews. "Put up - I mean I guess if we were playing poker (you would say) 'Put up or shut up.' What do you got?" The Robert Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt, headed now by 17 (increased from 13, including an Obama White House lawyer) angry Democrats, was started by a fraudulent Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary and the Democratic National Committee.

Meanwhile, the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort began Tuesday with jury selection, sending Mueller's investigation into a new phase with its first case before a jury. However, even Gollum knew in his heart that stealing was a crime, so perhaps he could teach Giuliani a thing or two about what is or isn't illegal. "The President didn't hack".

US President, Donald Trump, on Wednesday called on Attorney-General, Jeff Sessions, to end a federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether there was any cooperation by his campaign with Moscow.

Lewandowski said Trump's lawyers are likely advising him against meeting with Mueller.

Fox News reported: "Similarly, Dershowitz said Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen is also "in a squeeze" and may have to provide evidence against Trump for a "better deal.' He said witnesses like that sometimes end up 'composing" evidence in a bid for reduced charges or a lesser sentence". "And the other people at the meeting that he claims he had without the President about it say he was never there".

Of Giuliani's claim that collusion is not a crime, Jed Shugerman, a Fordham University law professor, wrote in Slate that while Trump's approval of the meeting would not in and of itself be incriminating, subsequent conduct could point to a conspiracy to defraud the United States or obstruction of justice, and that any such conduct could be prosecuted.
