Now that everybody with a properly functioning mind has figured-out that the Trump campaign was cooperating and coordinating with Russian intelligence agencies during the 2016 presidential campaign, Rudy Giuliani has updated his previously stouthearted denials.
After months of blasting the Russia investigation as a hoax, President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, appeared to abruptly walk back his client’s “no collusion” mantra on Wednesday night with the bombshell claim that neither he nor Trump had ever ruled out collusion by other members of the campaign.
“You just misstated my position. I never said there was no collusion between the campaign, or between people in the campaign; I have no idea,” Giuliani told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “I said the President of the United States. There is not a single bit of evidence that the President of the United States committed the only crime you can commit here, conspired with the Russians to hack the DNC.”
Recalling his masterful leadership of New York City following 9/11, I can’t help feeling just a little bit sad for Giuliani; from “America’s Mayor” to the humiliated, quavery-jowled dupe of a cheap, blinking-neon con man is quite a fall.
But Giuliani can’t possibly be the only person coming to terms with the facts, and Trump is bound to find himself increasingly isolated as the rats abandon ship.
