Trump lawyer Rudolph Giuliani insists they never denied collusion with Russia

Interviewed by CNN's Chris Cuomo, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani all but admits what everyone assumes: that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government in the 2016 presidential election.

Rudolph Giuliani: "I never stated there was no collusion between the campaign or people in the campaign."

CNN: "Yes you have."

Rudolph Giuliani: "I have not. I said there is not a single bit of evidence that the POTUS committed the only crime you could commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the DNC."

Trump has, of course, relentlessly denied any collusion whatsoever.

The weird thing about the goalposts being moved is that it really does mean there's no goal. The thing you thought was a real problem for Trump—being forced to admit what he has always denied about his campaign's links to the Russian government—will turn out to be just another news cycle.
