This morning, the President repeated his lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s assertion that colluding with foreign agents — like those of, say, the Russian Federation — isn’t a crime.
Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn’t matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!

Desperately attempting to post his way to innocence, the President is trying to have his cake and eat it too, seeing as just two days ago he argued that collusion was, in fact, a crime, as long it was being committed by Hillary Clinton or Democrats.
….Also, why is Mueller only appointing Angry Dems, some of whom have worked for Crooked Hillary, others, including himself, have worked for Obama….And why isn’t Mueller looking at all of the criminal activity & real Russian Collusion on the Democrats side-Podesta, Dossier?

Seeing as the president is in need of some instruction on the matter, former FBI chief of staff Chuck Rosenberg went on MSNBC to deliver a message to the president and his legal team that they all need to hear.
“Collusion is a crime. We just happen to call it something else, we call it conspiracy, but it is absolutely a crime…You probably won’t find the crime bank heist in the criminal code but bank robbery is a crime too, and so I am sort of perplexed that it has come down to synonyms” said a frustrated Rosenberg.
“If these folks don’t know that collusion and conspiracy are synonyms for one another and this is a legal strategy, then they might want to consider changing horses in this race.”
The president can cry collusion all he wants, but that’s not going to sway a judge or jury one bit, nor will it change the crimes listed in the United States legal code. No matter how much he rewrite the narrative and convince his followers that he’s innocent, the truth is going to come out — and judging from the vigor that the president is protesting, we can all tell who’s really guilty here.
