"Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn't matter because there was No Collusion", Trump tweeted, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Mueller has already accused Trump's former campaign chairman and another top aide of working as foreign agents for Ukrainian interests and funneling millions of dollars from the work into offshore accounts used to fund lavish lifestyles.
Legal experts say Giuliani and Trump have a point: there is no federal law or statue making campaign collusion a crime.
But Giuliani's media blitz is all a show, said Republican strategist Rick Wilson, who once worked for the former New York City mayor.
Acknowledging that Manafort's trial begins on Tuesday, Giuliani said, "Right, and he has no information incriminating of the president - I know that for a fact".
Democrats have argued that Mr. Mueller is likely to subpoena Mr. Trump, which could spark a debate over whether a sitting president can be subpoenaed.
Trump didn't say what those conflicts were, but he said he turned down Mueller to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a second time before Mueller was appointed special counsel, and that James Comey, whom Trump fired as Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, is Mueller's "close friend".
Giuliani also addressed audio recordings made by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen explaining only one has Trump on it, and that was revealed last week.
Later, Giuliani phoned in to Fox News seeking to clarify his earlier comments, telling anchor Harris Faulkner that "it's a very, very familiar lawyer's argument that...the alternative, that my client didn't do it, and even if he did, it's not a crime". You start analyzing the crime - hacking is the crime...
Looks like Colbert has found one creative way to highlight some of Giuliani's conflicting opinions of Cohen - although, given its foundation in literary myth, it might not hold up in court.
Russian Federation has denied the finding of US intelligence agencies past year that it interfered to sway the election to Trump. "I suspect that we'll see that in some of his rulings".
