Republican Strategist: Giuliani's Collusion Claims Are All For Show

But Trump, a serene man confident in his own innocence, has updated "no collusion!" to "collusion is not a crime".

Somewhat notably, Trump went after Mueller by name in multiple tweets raging against the "witch hunt" yesterday, accusing Mueller himself of harboring multiple conflicts of interest.

CNN reported last Thursday that Mr Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen is prepared to tell federal investigators that Mr Trump knew and approved of the Trump Tower meeting where a Russian lawyer with links to the Kremlin was expected to deliver damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

In a tweet, Trump earlier referred to a "very nasty & contentious business relationship" he once had with Mueller, and although Giuliani didn't elaborate, he said Mueller needs to "stand up and be a man".

"I believe the Constitution is clear that the president can not be subpoenaed or if he is subpoenaed, he has a right to challenge it", Mr. Giuliani said.

"I don't know", Giuliani said before pivoting to other subjects.

Giuliani said that the only crime present regarding the Russians is hacking, and it'd be "ridiculous" to think that Trump was involved.

"I believe we are coming toward the end, so I'm talking to some of the people that were involved in the original part of the investigation", he said.

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.

Giuliani told Sean Hannity that his team had moved away from allowing the president to answer even "a few limited questions on collusion". Citing two unnamed White House advisers, the newspaper said Mueller and the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia had a dispute over fees when Mueller resigned as a member in 2011.

The Trump team began publicly arguing this assertion since late previous year.

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".
