Prosecutors could try to pursue other charges if they uncover what they consider criminal behavior in the Russian Federation probe. "'Collusion" and "coordination' are not legally relevant terms, but they are often used as shorthand to refer to such a criminal conspiracy", it said.
Giuliani: "I don't even know if that's a crime, colluding about Russians".
Mueller might decide, for example, that a crime was committed if he finds evidence that an American was involved in the hack of Democrats, either by soliciting it or paying someone to do it. The hacking is the crime, ' he concluded. "He didn't pay for the hacking".
"Conspiracy and aiding and abetting are forms of collusion that are indeed a crime".
Alleged Russia's interference in the 2016 election, in which Trump won by Electoral College but lost to Clinton by nearly three million popular votes, led to the set-up of the special panel headed by Robert Mueller.
"If he's proven to have not told the whole truth about the fact that campaigns look for dirt, and if someone offers it, you listen to them, nobody's going to be surprised", said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif. Of course not, ' Giuliani said.
While the main areas of Mueller's investigation are Russia's actions during the 2016 presidential election and any attempts by Trump to obstruct justice, none of those topics are expected to come up in Manafort's trial.
As recently as last week, Giuliani was defending Trump by saying he had no advance knowledge of a meeting his son, Donald Trump Jr., and several campaign associates had with a Kremlin-linked lawyer at the Trump Tower in June 2016. Trump also accused Mueller of bringing on too many Democratic investigators, and the President made a false claim about the origin of the Russian Federation investigation.
Two of the highest-ranking officials in Donald Trump's White House detest his lawyer Rudy Giuliani - but their relationship with the boss isn't excellent either.
Trump regularly repeats the denial on Twitter and in remarks. Giuliani said negotiations continue with Mueller's office regarding the conditions for an interview, which Trump's legal team spelled out in a proposal this month.
'Because he has the conflict, not the president, ' said Giuliani.
Giuliani explained Trump's view is "enough is enough".
'Why don't you write a report and show us what you have, because they don't have a goddamn thing, ' Giuliani said.
