On Thursday morning, the panel on CNN’s New Day agreed that Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s legal adviser, appeared on CNN late Wednesday and melted down because he is setting the stage for more bad news to come for the president.
During his CNN appearance, the frantic Giuliani blurted out that it was entirely possible that the president’s campaign colluded with the Russian but insisted that the president was not aware of it — a stunning admission after asserting for a long time that there was no collusion.
According to CNN’s David Gregory, Giuliani’s admission may have been calculated to get out in front of a big revelation coming from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Asked by hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota what Giuliani hoped to accomplished, Gregory said it was a mystery, but the former New York City mayor has a history that may provide a clue.
“It’s always a mystery with Rudy Giuliani because we don’t know what he knows,” Gregory offered. “He’s in this role of this fighter for the president on TV — his TV lawyer. But as we’ve been discussing this morning, so often he says something that raises eyebrows that makes you go what? Are you moving the goalposts here? And it’s because something is about to come out.”
“Does he know does he know something that’s coming from the Mueller investigation, evidence that’s been shared with him?” Gregory continued. “Or is he relying on the one thing that he thinks he has to do, which is to insulate the president from potential criminal behavior.”
CNN analyst Nia-Malika Henderson jumped in to say that Giuliani has a knack for “foreshadowing” bad news before it is released to soften the blow for President Trump.

Fox News is so obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez they said her name three times as much as CNN or MSNBC
It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.
"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."
CNN’s Santorum gets his butt handed to him by fellow conservative over defense of Trump’s ‘disgusting’ racism
CNN contributor Rick Santorum ran into some fierce resistance on Sunday morning when he attempted to defend the explicit racism in Donald Trump's tweets at Democratic lawmakers -- with the only other conservative on the panel blowing up on him.
Speaking with fill-in host Dana Bash, the former GOP Senator from Pennsylvania was right away on the defensive when asked about the president's tweets and the resulting "send her back" chant at a rally in North Carolina.
"He says things to bring attention to these issues and I know it's hair on fire time for everyone on the left," Santorum offered in Trump's defense, which brought a sharp comeback from fellow conservative CNN commentator S.E. Cupp.
Trump busted for doubling down on his racist rants before Mueller speaks: ‘He’s scared’
Appearing on CNN's "New Day," a former adviser to Bill Clinton said that he expects ex-special counsel Robert Mueller to make a some blunt statements about President Donald Trump in his upcoming appearance before a Congressional committee that will cause voters to turn on the president.
According to Guy Smith, who advised former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment ordeal, Mueller's own words will carry tremendous weight with voters who have no idea what is in his report on the president.
"Well, what we're going to see is people who have never read the report, which is most everybody, and they have only heard President Trump and the attorney general say he's been exonerated. It does not," he told host Christi Paul. "So, what's going to happen is that they're going to be hearing Robert Mueller in his own words say that the president obstructed justice. The American people have not read this thing."
