Giuliani: It's time for Mueller to put up or shut up

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating possible cooperation between Trump's presidential campaign and Russians who sought to influence the 2016 USA election by hacking into Democratic computers and using social media to try to undermine Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Critics saw Giuliani's statements as indicative that the president's defense against accusations of working with Russian contacts to help him win the election is rapidly unraveling. "But there's no collusion", Trump said.

The president has repeatedly since taking office denied that he or his 2016 campaign associates worked with Russian officials or individuals during his race against Democratic foe Hillary Clinton.

Fordham University law professor Jed Shurgerman concurred, writing in Slate last week that "while "collusion" might not be a crime under any federal statute, any collusive conduct by the Trump campaign could be prosecuted as a 'conspiracy against the United States'".

Giuliani appeared on multiple television networks Sunday and Monday to stress the president's innocence and add that "collusion is not a crime".

Then, General Manager Mike Rizzo, who said he went sleepless Monday night, sent a text message to The Post. Major League Baseball executives on other teams are skeptical the Nationals will make a deal today.

The Trump team began publicly arguing this assertion since late previous year. So collusion is not only a crime; collusion involves at least four crimes. "We don't think they have a legitimate investigation", he said.

Prosecutors have lined up 35 witnesses and more than 500 pieces of evidence they say will show how Manafort earned more than $US60 million from his Ukrainian work and then concealed a "significant percentage" of that money from the IRS. He said about ten of them feature Cohen and reporters, while another one is a tape of Trump, Cohen and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

As people who have been keeping up with the news know, Trump is a man with a deep understanding of the English language, focused on the specifics of semantics.

Gates is also expected to play a key role in Manafort's second trial, scheduled for September. "And that is really what the Mueller investigation is all about". A successful conviction would give momentum to Mueller since the probe began 14 months ago. Three Russian companies have also been charged.
