Trump Calls Out Mueller for 'Conflicts of Interest'

Trump Calls Out Mueller for 'Conflicts of Interest'

President Donald Trump stepped up his onslaught on federal Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian Federation and the 2016 USA election on Tuesday, saying that his campaign did not collude with Moscow but that collusion is not a crime anyway.

He later told CNN: "The hacking is the crime. That's like your doctor going, 'I don't even know if that's a disease, bleeding from your eyeballs'". You start analyzing the crime - the hacking is the crime.

"Collusion is basically a partnership in crime, which is conspiracy", said Randall Eliason, a former federal prosecutor and a law professor at George Washington University.

"Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn't matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!", Trump said on Twitter.

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.

"If these folks don't know that collusion and conspiracy are synonyms for one another and this is a legal strategy then they might want to consider changing horses in this race", Rosenberg added.

Trump has denied any collusion for months.

He said Trump's legal team presented its offer for limited questioning of the president to Mueller's team 10 days ago but has not heard back.

Trump blasted Mueller for not releasing conflicts of interest stemming from what he called "a very nasty & contentious business relationship", and noted that he had previously turned him down to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Giuliani is suddenly uncertain about circumstances surrounding the meeting as well, as he dodged a definitive answer when Camerota asked him if the unknown number Don Jr. called just before and after the meeting was the President's. "It's one that would have kept me out of the investigation.What it means is I would have had a personal interest, a personal dispute with the President of the United States before the investigation that really precluded me from it".

North Korean Deputy Prime Minister Ri Ryong Nam, Deputy Foreign Minister Chie Hui Choi, Deputy Director-General of the Asia Department Park Hyun Chol and Asia Department chief Ri Ho Juun also attended the meeting, the release said.
