The President then turned to Mueller directly, tweeting, "Is Robert Mueller ever going to release his conflicts of interest with respect to President Trump, including the fact that we had a very nasty & contentious business relationship, I turned him down to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation (one day before appointment as S.C.) & Comey is his close friend".
Trump and Giuliani's stance has moved from there was "no collusion" to "collusion is not a crime" after the U.S. President's former lawyer Michael Cohen alleged that then candidate Trump knew about a meeting between his son and a Russian lawyer at the Trump Tower in NY.
'You start analyzing the crime, the hacking is the crime.
Giuliani told The Daily Beast that this included reporters from The New York Times, such as the paper's star Trump reporter Maggie Haberman, who had reached out about the alleged pre-meeting meeting.
In his wide-ranging interview on "New Day", Giuliani also said he didn't know if Trump's ex-lawyer under criminal investigation, Michael Cohen, would be pardoned by Trump and claimed that Mueller's team has been unresponsive to the Trump legal team's recommendations regarding a potential interview between Mueller and the President for more than a week.

Some sunshine is expected early, followed by a cloudier sky and scattered rain and storms in the early afternoon. Ahead of the front highs will top-out in the mid 90s with a gusty southerly wind across parts of western Kansas.
Moscow has denied such interference and Trump has denied any collusion by his campaign or any obstruction of justice.
Although Trump has strongly opposed views there was any collusion between Russian Federation and his campaign, he has made similar remarks as Giuliani in the past, a New York Times report highlighted.
Mueller might decide, for example, that a crime was committed if he finds evidence that an American was involved in the hack of Democrats, either by soliciting it or paying someone to do it. The (FBI agent Peter) Strzok report shows a guy off the wall who ran the original investigation hates Trump and claims he's not biased but he hates him.
The man heading Trump's re-election campaign, Brad Parscale, has in recent months called on Trump to fire Sessions and end the Mueller probe. My favorite is when he was comparing the Cohen and Mueller beef with President Trump to the Kennedy assassination and when Julius Caesar was killed - no hyperbole at all. After Mueller's appointment in May 2017, the Department of Justice released a statement confirming that ethics experts reviewed his appointment and "determined that Mr. Mueller's participation in the matters assigned to him is appropriate". Giuliani said. "We have every reason to believe they don't have anything of the President doing anything wrong. Therefore, the witch hunt is an illegal scam", Mr Trump said.
In the CNN interview, Giuliani referenced a conflict so severe that if it were him, 'it's one that would have kept me out of the investigation.' But he wouldn't divulge more. I have a good idea.
"I can't keep up with Rudy Giuliani's theories of defense".
