Rudy Giuliani Just Went on CNN and Admitted Donald Trump's Campaign May Have Colluded With Russia, and Chris Cuomo's Reaction Is All of Us

The President's attorney and New York City's former Mayor Rudy Giuliani has become infamous for his televised tirades, in which he claims there's been "no collusion" between President Donald Trump and Russia. He decries the Mueller investigation into Russian influence on the United States election as a "witch hunt," because—according to Giuliani—"truth is not truth."

Last night while speaking with CNN Host Chris Cuomo, he let some "not truth" slip. As Cuomo pressed Giuliani on his insistence that there was no suggestion of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

That's when Giuliani responded with an important—and telling—correction:

"I never said there was no collusion between the campaign. Or between people in the campaign. I have no idea."

Cuomo did a double take and corrected Giuliani: "Yes, you have."

Giuliani responded:

"I have not. I've said 'the President of the United States.' There is not a single bit of evidence the President of the United States committed the only crime you could commit here: conspired with the Russians to hack the DNC."

Watch the shocking video below:

With the revelation, many Americans were feeling as stunned as Cuomo when hearing it live on the air.

To some, even Giuliani seemed surprised at his own words.

It's with good reason, however, that the two should be so surprised.

The admission from Giuliani sends a crack through what has otherwise been a ceaseless refrain from the White House: That the idea of Trump's campaign colluding with Russian operatives was ridiculous and likely generated by vengeful Democrats.

Some are noting how the story is constantly changing.

The scary part: This may be just the beginning.

Attorney General William Barr criticized President Donald Trump's tweets about Justice Department prosecutors' sentencing recommendation for Trump ally Roger Stone.

Barr—who overrode the recommendation after Trump railed against it on Twitter—said Trump's tweets made it impossible to do his job, though some people believe his words weren't to rein in Trump, but to mitigate public outrage.

Fox Host Lou Dobbs is not one of those people.

Americans across the country were furious when President Donald Trump fired Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman after Trump was acquitted in his impeachment trial by the Republican Senate.

Vindman complied with a congressional subpoena to testify before the House committee overseeing Trump's impeachment inquiry last year.

The career military official and Purple Heart recipient was escorted out by security along with his twin brother, an NSC official who played no part in the impeachment proceedings.

People cried foul earlier this week when the Justice Department overrode four career prosecutors to recommend a reduced sentence for former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone.

The Department's decision came only a day after Trump railed against the prosecutors' recommendation on Twitter, leading many to believe the Department reduced the sentence recommendation because the President interceded on his ally's behalf.

All four prosecutors on the case resigned in response to the change.
