Rudy Giuliani: Trump Didn’t Collude With Russia Because Campaign Never Used Dirt on Clinton
Speaking to Laura Ingraham on Fox News Wednesday night, pro bono President Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani insisted that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia because it’s not illegal to get dirt and not use it.
He then said the focus of the investigation should really be on former FBI director James Comey, not Trump.
“There’s nothing illegal about that [getting dirt],” Giuliani opined, referring to the CNN report that Donald Trump Jr. admitted the Trump Tower meeting was aimed at getting dirt on Hillary Clinton. “Even if it comes from a Russian or German or American, it doesn’t matter. They never used it. That’s the main thing. They rejected it. If there was collusion with the Russians they would’ve used it.”
He then suggested that the person who should really be under investigation is Comey.
Do you think there “is any chance that Bob Mueller gave immunity to Jim Comey?” Ingraham asked.
“No, I don’t,” Giuliani admitted. “I have no idea if he gave him immunity. I don’t know why he is not being investigated.”
Trump’s lawyer then suggested the only way Trump, who he claimed gave more logical statements than Comey, would sit down for an interview was if “Comey was investigated” too.
