President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani gave an outlandish interview during CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s Wednesday night show.
During the interview, Giuliani claimed that he “never said there was no collusion” between Trump’s campaign and Russia.
Conservative commentator Max Boot said that the interview was “something we have never seen” and that Giuliani was attempting to create a new narrative before new evidence of Trump’s connection to Russia surfaces.
“I think we’re about one or two days away from Rudy Giuliani saying that collusion with hostile foreign powers is what makes America great.” Boot told CNN’s Don Lemon on Wednesday.
Boot said, “This is just stunning because when Giuliani makes these kinds of concessions — and you’ve got to play that clip over and over again because the president’s lawyer is basically admitting that the president’s campaign colluded with Russia to [impact] the outcome of the American election.”
He added, “Rudy Giuliani is saying, ‘I’m not denying there’s collusion. I’m just saying it didn’t involve the president personally. I’m saying the president didn’t personally break the law.’ This is establishing a new defensive perimeter.”
“He’s basically signaling that he knows there is very strong evidence of collusion, and he is trying to get out ahead of that evidence,” Boot said. “This has really never happened before in American history.”

Trump picks Antonin Scalia’s son to replace disgraced former Labor Secretary: report
On Thursday, NPR reported that President Donald Trump is naming Eugene Scalia, the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, to take over as Secretary of Labor.
Scalia, who served on the court from 1986 to his death in 2016, was known as one of the staunchest conservatives on the bench. His seat was deliberately kept vacant by Republicans for over a year to deny President Barack Obama the ability to make an appointment to it.
The Department of Labor was until this month run by former federal prosecutor Alexander Acosta, who resigned in disgrace amid renewed questions about his role in brokering a potentially illegal sweetheart plea agreement with hedge fund manager and accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
Trump official melts down on MSNBC after refusing to admit Trump lied to America
On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "The Beat," Ari Melber confronted acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan about President Donald Trump's empty threat of "mass raids" of communities nationwide by immigration officials — and Morgan was not pleased.
"The president said there would be these mass raids. Described as thousands of arrests," said Melber. "Were there mass raids, yes or no?"
"First of all, I don’t actually call this a raid," said Morgan. "I think words matter."
"Words matter, so I’m going to get to your response," said Melber. "Were there mass raids as promised?"
DOJ policy blocking Trump from being indicted ‘factored into’ the end of the Stormy Daniels case: report
Federal prosecutors decided to close the investigation into the 2016 criminal hush money payment to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal that benefitted the Trump campaign because, in part, of the policy that prevents the indictment of a sitting president, according to a new report from USA Today citing an anonymous source.
Michael Cohen has already pleaded guilty to the violation of campaign finance law. He said that he carried out the effort in coordination with and at the direction of then-candidate Donald Trump in order to increase his chances of victory in the 2016 presidential election.
