In an interview on CNN Wednesday night, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, tried to distance his client from evidence that his campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election.
In the process of defending Trump, Giuliani admitted that there may have been collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
“I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign … I have not. I said the president of the United States,” Giuliani asserted.
Analysts pointed out that Giuliani had not done his client any favors by admitting that members of the Trump campaign may have worked with the Russians.
On Thursday, CNN aired a montage of all the times the president has vehemently denied that his campaign colluded with Russian agents.
“No collusion!” the president declared in multiple public appearances. “Everybody knows there was no collusion.”
The more than dozen times the president has denied collusion assembled by CNN don’t even include all the Tweets and public statements.
“Those are just the soundbites,” observed CNN host Brianna Keilar.

Pennsylvania Trump voter shreds president for breaking promises to Rust Belt: ‘He pulled a Houdini on us’
A Pennsylvania man who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 told CNN on Friday that he's bitterly disappointed in how he's seen no progress in manufacturing jobs returning to his community.
John Golomb, a retired steel worker who backed the president in 2016 because of his promises to bring back good paying jobs to the Rust Belt, explained to CNN that Trump gave his community false hope about an economic revival during his first presidential campaign.
"We had Donald Trump come here and profess about reviving American steel," he said. "That's just what all of us steelworkers wanted to hear!"
