Giuliani Calls Into Fox to Clarify Collusion Remarks: ‘My Client Didn’t Do It, And Even If He Did It, It’s Not a Crime’


Rudy Giuliani called into Fox News’s Outnumbered on Monday for a surprise hit that went more than 25-minutes, in which he attempted to clarify a series of comments he made earlier in the morning regarding his client, President Donald Trump.

Giuliani stunned on Monday morning when he appeared to massively shift the goalposts on Fox News and CNN by arguing that collusion, which Trump has adamantly denied happened between his campaign and Russia, is “not a crime.”

He called into Outnumbered to clarify.

“When I said today that there was no collusion, and that collusion also is no crime, I’ve been saying that from the very beginning, so did John Dowd,” Giuliani said. “It’s a very very familiar lawyer’s argument that… in the alternative: My client didn’t do it, and even if he did it, it’s not a crime.”

“I have said that over and over again,” he continued. “Collusion is not a crime. The only crime here is hacking, and it’s ridiculous to think that the president hacked.”

Giuliani added that his argument is intended “to attack the legitimacy of the investigation.”
