Giuliani Tries To Backtrack On “Collusion” Bombshell

Maggie Haberman reports at the New York Times:

President Trump’s personal attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani backtracked on Thursday from a surprising assertion he made a night earlier that left open the possibility that Trump campaign aides might have coordinated with Russia’s election interference in 2016.

“There was no collusion by President Trump in any way, shape or form,” Mr. Giuliani said in a statement on Thursday, reiterating the president’s longstanding defense against accusations that his campaign secretly coordinated with Moscow to help swing the election to him.

“Likewise, I have no knowledge of any collusion by any of the thousands of people who worked on the campaign.” He added, “The only knowledge I have in this regard is the collusion of the Clinton campaign with Russia which has so far been ignored.”
