Giuliani Claims He’s Been ‘Misinterpreted’ Over His ‘Never Said No Collusion’ Comments
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani is apparently doing some damage control from his most recent comments about collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump.
Giuliani is drawing a lot of media attention over the explosive shoutfest of an interview he gave to CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday night. He especially raised eyebrows by claiming “I never said there was no collusion between the [Trump] campaign” and Russia during the 2016 election.
The fact of the matter is Giuliani and Trump have both claimed “no collusion” multiple times in the past, so political observers are wondering if the former just admitted that people in Trump’s orbit colluded with Russia to help the president-to-be.
In a new statement to New York Times‘ Maggie Haberman, Giuliani is claiming that his remarks were” misinterpreted,” that he was speaking with reference to Trump himself, and that he has “no knowledge of any collusion” from members of the president’s campaign.
