Giuliani Gets Raked Over The Coals For ‘Collusion’ Comments. Here’s How He’s Responding.

President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, set off a firestorm this week when he made a huge boo boo during an interview with CNN, stating he “never said there was no collusion between campaign, or people in the campaign.”

Giuliani is now on the defensive, issuing a statement to the Associated Press on Thursday to attempt to straighten out the matter.

“I represent only the president, not the campaign,” the former New York City mayor told AP in an interview Thursday. “And I can only speak of what I know, and that is that I have no knowledge that anyone on the campaign illegally colluded with Russia. But I can only speak definitively about the president, as he is my client.”

In another statement Thursday, he emphasized what he’d told CNN Wednesday: “there was no collusion by President Trump in any way, shape or form” and he had “no knowledge of any collusion by any of the thousands of people who worked on the campaign,” AP reports.

The statements come in response to his widely reported interview with CNN’s left-leaning host Chris Cuomo Wednesday in which Giuliani stated that he’d “never said” individuals from the campaign hadn’t been in contact with Russia, only that his client Trump and the campaign in general had not “colluded” with Russia.

“I never said there was no collusion between the campaign, or people in the campaign,” Giuliani told Cuomo, the Daily Wire reported. “I have no idea if …”

“Yes, you have,” Cuomo interjected.

“I have not,” Giuliani responded. “I said the President of the United States. There is not a single bit of evidence the President of the United States committed the only crime you can commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the DNC.”

Boy, when CNN grabs a hold of a comment, they don’t mind ripping it right out of its context and then twisting it every which way to make it say what they want.

Giuliani clearly means he represents only the president, and that the president himself is not guilty of any collusion. His comment on Cuomo’s program was stating that he doesn’t know if anyone else has colluded or not, but the president hasn’t.

That is a simple, matter-of-fact, plain Jane statement. Yet the kings of fake news couldn’t wait to rip that comment apart and use it to push their own narrative.

And these folks wonder why no one trusts CNN anymore? Seriously?
