MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said Rudy Giuliani told Americans that President Donald Trump's campaign had engaged in a conspiracy with Russia to rig the 2016 election.
The "Morning Joe" host was gobsmacked by Giuliani's appearance Wednesday night on CNN, where the former New York City mayor shifted the goalposts again in the investigation of Trump campaign ties to Russia.
"We attack Rudy way too much, but one thing, you got to admit the guy is consistent, right?" Scarborough said. "'No collusion, no collusion, no collusion.' The guy -- like, what's this? What's this? 'No collusion' -- that's his middle name, they're going to put on his tombstone."
But the president's attorney changed his tune, telling CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that he had never said there was no collusion between the campaign and Russia, and instead insisted there had been no evidence that Trump himself had engaged in collusion.
"His eyes bulged after he said that," Scarborough said. "My eyes just bulged, as well."
Scarborough said the admission was stunning.
“Rudy Giuliani just told America and the world that Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia, full stop,” he said.
