  • President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani speaks to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington

"Apparently, if you say something's not a crime, then it's not a crime".

Two of the highest-ranking officials in Donald Trump's White House detest his lawyer Rudy Giuliani - but their relationship with the boss isn't excellent either.

The former NY mayor said if Trump is interviewed by Mueller's legal team, "Our real concern is they're going to set up a perjury trap", attempting to catch Trump, who often misstates facts, in a lie, which is a criminal offense.

In a tweet, Trump earlier referred to a "very nasty & contentious business relationship" he once had with Mueller, and although Giuliani didn't elaborate, he said Mueller needs to "stand up and be a man".

He later told CNN: "The hacking is the crime. Well, the president didn't hack!" "He didn't pay them for hacking".

Giuliani told Sean Hannity that his team had moved away from allowing the president to answer even "a few limited questions on collusion". CNN's sources said Cohen did not have hard evidence to back up his claims. The first could be a criminal conspiracy to solicit or receive "something of value" from a foreign government, namely the "dirt" on Hillary Clinton that Trump Jr. was promised (responding "I love it") would be delivered at the meeting.

Critics saw Giuliani's statements as indicative that the president's defense against accusations of working with Russian contacts to help him win the election is rapidly unraveling.

Giuliani also addressed audio recordings made by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen explaining only one has Trump on it, and that was revealed last week. "And the other people at the meeting that he claims he had without the President about it say he was never there".
