This, of course, follows Rudy Giuliani saying essentially this exact same thing yesterday.


Other Trump supporters have now also joined in which in my mind means that Feds most likely have Trump by the short hairs on colluding with Russia and him, and his team of Keystone Kops, are desperate to minimize the importance of whatever proof comes out during this Cohen investigation. 

I think things are going to really start getting good any day now.

    Federal “While “collusion” may not be crime, “Conspiracy to defraud the United States” and “Contributions and donations by foreign nationals” are.”
    “two months ago, Trump wondered why special counsel Robert Mueller wasn’t investigating his 2016 opponent for potential collusion. Apparently, collusion isn’t a crime unless you’re Hillary Clinton.” OK?!

      OT? ” They’re hacking or attempting to hack political campaigns, we saw Claire Mccaskill is one of the targets of this, and that she was a target the same week that Donald Trump was evidently saying publicly that she needed to be defeated. That has an echo of July — of the election year in which Donald Trump said publicly, hey Russians, if you’re listening, hack Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. On that date, they did try to hack the Clinton campaign.””The timing is probably not a coincidence. Trump called for the defeat of McCaskill. The Russians tried to hack her campaign. It is all reminiscent of when Trump called for the Russians to get Hillary Clinton’s emails during the 2016 campaign, and the Russians responded the same day by trying to hack members of the Clinton campaign. Trump has already shown that he is willing to publicly tell the Russians what he would like them to do, so Adam Schiff likely is not far off base.”

    ” Even if there had been collusion, it wouldn’t matter.” “Now, key Trump advisers Rudy Giuliani and Chris Christie are arguing that Trump’s involvement in such an effort wouldn’t be a big deal. “I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime,” Giuliani, the former New York mayor now serving as Trump’s lawyer, told ”Fox & Friends” on Monday. “Collusion is not a crime.”

    Christie, the former governor of New Jersey, used the exact same phrase during an ABC’s “This Week” appearance on Sunday. “Collusion is not a crime,” he said, “and so the fact of the matter is that we’re a long way away yet from having anything to talk about here.”

    “Although “collusion” per se might not violate federal law, at least outside the context of antitrust, conspiracy to commit some other federal crime would be. Organizing an effort to hack into and expose Clinton’s emails ― or to violate campaign finance regulations, by accepting help from a foreign agent ― would fall into those categories, just to take two purely hypothetical examples.” “impeachment is not about punishing or deterring crime in the way that, say, a law against fraud or assault is. It’s about removing officials from office because they are unfit or undermining the democratic workings of government”

    “If Trump actively colluded with Russians in 2016, that would seem to be a lot closer to Johnson and Nixon’s offenses than to Clinton’s. You could even make a case that such actions would be worse than what Johnson or Nixon did, especially because the Founders were obviously very concerned about the influence of foreign actors ― as the separate, explicit reference to “treason” in the Constitution’s impeachment clause suggests.

    The same would go for perjury related to Russian interference and a possible cover-up, which is why Turmp’s lawyers are so reluctant to let him sit for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller.”
    “It’s easy to forget, when news like last week’s Cohen story breaks, that Trump may have already said and done enough in full public view ― like firing former FBI Director James Comey, and then saying on national television he did so because of the Russia probe ― to warrant a serious impeachment inquiry.

    Giuliani, Christie, and Trump himself don’t want Americans to think too hard about that, which is why they’re turning the argument over collusion into a detailed legal dispute about the federal criminal code.”

    Trump Tells Republicans That He Doesn’t Care About Losing Congress Over Government Shutdown

    You Lie: Trump’s Own Justice Department Admits That He Lied To Congress

      “Wittes is talking about a comment President Trump made before a joint session of Congress on February 28, 2017, when he wrongly claimed that according to data from the DOJ, the bast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism since 9/11 came from outside of our country.” “When Wittes asked on June 12, 2018 the DOJ to conduct a search for records containing this data, since he was sure the DOJ did not in fact collect such data, the DOJ found, “[N]o responsive records were located.”

      In other words, Trump lied.

      This lie, like his other daily lies, is outrageous in its stupidity and worse yet because Trump’s supporters, who place no value in actual facts or information, heard it and filed it and use it to justify Trump’s inhumane and ineffective so called “no tolerance” border policy.”

    …Sure enough, the story broke that Donald Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen was willing to testify that he witnessed Trump signing off on Donald Trump Jr’s meeting with the Russians. Then this morning Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani appeared on cable news and revealed that Trump campaign leaders held a meeting to discuss how to handle the upcoming meeting with the Russians. Rudy then stated that “I don’t even know if that’s a crime, colluding about Russians.”

    So there it is. Donald Trump, through his trial balloon of a mouthpiece Rudy Giuliani, is now trying out the ‘I conspired with Russia, so what’ defense. While Trump’s shrinking base may choose to go along with the idea that his felony treason against the United States somehow wasn’t a crime, it’ll simply paint him as guilty in the eyes of those who haven’t yet firmly decided whether to believe the claims against him or his claims that it’s all “fake news.” Just as importantly, the ‘I did it but it wasn’t a crime’ defense won’t get Trump anywhere in his inevitable criminal trial.

    I remember telling @realDonaldTrump in a private phone talk in 2017 to keep trying to improve the relationship between US & Russia despite the criticism and not to forget we might’ve lost WWII w/o Russia as an ally. Glad to see him reaching out to them from a position of strength

    “Schwartz predicted that Trump would do three specific things, although not necessarily all at once or in any particular order: He’d attack the free press; he’d compile an enemies list and begin getting revenge on those he thinks slighted him; and he’d declare martial law to solidify his power.”

    “The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (that country’s version of NPR/PBS) is reporting right now that Donald Trump is studying plans to bomb Iran as soon as a month from now. To quote the article that is rocking Australia right now: “Senior figures in the Turnbull Government have told the ABC they believe the United States is prepared to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities, perhaps as early as next month, and that Australia is poised to help identify possible targets.”

    If Trump believes that Bush was right that war is good for politics and lifts war-making presidents and parties, perhaps this is his midterm strategy in the face of terrible poll numbers. Tragically, such a bombing could well bring Iran’s allies, including Russia and China, into a larger war, triggering World War III in a manner similar to how World War I spiraled out of control.” “Trump doesn’t need a fight with Mueller in the courts to provoke a crisis: war works just as well.” ” war gives a president political capital”

    “Trump thrives on creating crises, and then “solving” the crisis he, himself created. ”
