Rudy Giuliani keeps moving the bar on the Mueller investigation

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that "collusion is not a crime" as the first trial in federal Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe begins.

According to Waas, "people familiar with the matter" have told him that both Priebus and McGahn also testified to Special Counsel Robert Mueller that they personally provided this information to Trump during a January 26, 2017 meeting.

For more than a year, Trump's "catchphrase has been "no collusion, '" Colbert said".

"It's just flat-out untrue", Mr Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, said on "Fox News Sunday" about the claims.

"The odds are against it, but I wouldn't be shocked, because he wants to do it", Giuliani said.

It also plans to add "lighter, smaller and more accessible products" through 2022 in its electric motorcycles portfolio. The move will also "enable accessible price point for premium small displacement market entry", Harley-Davidson added.

"You start analysing the crime. The President didn't hack".

"I think they're getting closer to knowing that the truth's going to come out, that there was activities with the Trump campaign in Russian Federation in releasing those hacks and guiding them to the states and the localities where they came from".

Asked about former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's upcoming trial, Giuliani told Alisyn Camerota that Mr Manafort "was not involved with intimate business relationships with Donald Trump". There is no collusion, and even if there was, it's not a crime.

Giuliani told Sean Hannity that his team had moved away from allowing the president to answer even "a few limited questions on collusion".

On Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump echoed his attorney's claims on Twitter. Trump said there was "No Collusion!" and described Mueller's investigation as a "rigged witch hunt" and "an illegal Scam!"

Giuliani also vaguely questioned Mueller's fitness to lead the investigation, which he took over after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey previous year.

In addition to possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, Mueller is also looking at whether Trump has tried to obstruct the investigation. Trump's lawyer has said he expects Mueller to file a report by September 1.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team of investigators into the Trump campaign has indicted several Russian nationals and five American Trump associates on charges including Manafort, whose trial regarding allegations that he laundered $30 million on behalf of pro-Russia Ukrainian politicians begins Tuesday.

"Right now I'm telling him 'no way, '" he said, asking why Trump would testify in an investigation that has "no legitimacy".
