President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, on Thursday sought to clarify widely publicized comments he made about possible collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia, saying that he had “no knowledge” of it taking place. “There was no collusion by President Trump in any way, shape or form,” Giuliani said in a statement to The New York Times. “Likewise, I have no knowledge of any collusion by any of the thousands of people who worked on the campaign.” He also argued that “the only knowledge I have in this regard is the collusion of the [Hillary] Clinton campaign with Russia, which has so far been ignored.”
Giuliani drew attention on Wednesday night by claiming that he “never said there was no collusion” between the Trump 2016 campaign and Moscow.
“I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign,” Giuliani said on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” before adding that he has only said Trump did not collude with the Russians.
“There is not a single bit of evidence the president of the United States committed the only crime you could commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the [Democratic National Committee],” Giuliani said.
