Rudolph W. Giuliani claimed Wednesday night that he “never said there was no collusion” between President Trump’s campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election.
In a remarkable, at times contentious interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, the president’s lawyer was accused of contradicting his own past statements about collusion as well as what Trump and his supporters have repeatedly asserted. On Twitter, Trump has used the phrase “no collusion” dozens of times, and a number of those instances were direct denials that his campaign was involved with the Russian government.
Giuliani’s shocking declarations — several of which Cuomo called out as being false — quickly sent the Internet into a tailspin as many wondered what could have prompted the former New York mayor to suddenly change course.
On CNN, Giuliani and Cuomo then proceeded to tangle over the president’s past statements that “nobody” associated with his campaign colluded.
“He didn’t say nobody, he said he didn’t,” Giuliani said of Trump, which Cuomo immediately noted was not true.
Giuliani said Thursday that his comments on CNN “have been misinterpreted”and that he wanted to clarify them.
“I represent only President Trump not the Trump campaign,” he said in a statement, and gave similar remarks in a telephone interview with The Washington Post. “There was no collusion by President Trump in any way, shape or form. Likewise, I have no knowledge of any collusion by any of the thousands of people who worked on the campaign.”

Well this important news definitely needed yet another thread on the new topics list. The content is also quite different than all the other threads too.
Can you explain why this commentary matters so much that it's 'disgracing us as a nation'? How is this single statement worse than bombing the crap out of other countries?

Collusion is not a crime, conspiracy is. Hillary Brennan and other top Obama people broke the law by committing a conspiracy 2 stop candidate Trump and to unseat duly elected president Trump. They will pay dearly for that.
