Rudy Giuliani claimed on Monday that "collusion is not a crime" while declaring President Trump is "absolutely innocent" in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

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.

"That's like your doctor going, 'I don't even know if that's a disease, bleeding from your eyeballs'".

The meeting was attended by the president's son, Donald Trump Jr, as well as Paul Manafort, the former chairman of Mr Trump's campaign, and the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Trump himself also said in a New York Times interview in December, "There is no collusion, and even if there was, it's not a crime". You start analyzing the crime - hacking is the crime...

U.S. President Donald Trump's attorney said Monday it remains unlikely Trump will agree to answer questions from special counsel Robert Mueller about Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and whether the president obstructed justice by trying to thwart the investigation. "He didn't pay for the hacking".

Giuliani told USAToday that he expects a final report to be issued by Mueller and his team prior to September 1, and added, that in his opinion, Mueller is "writing the report as we speak".

CNN reported last Thursday that Mr Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen is prepared to tell federal investigators that Mr Trump knew and approved of the Trump Tower meeting where a Russian lawyer with links to the Kremlin was expected to deliver damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

Giuliani also vaguely questioned Mueller's fitness to lead the investigation, which he took over after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey previous year.

Mueller's team has indicted or secured guilty pleas from 32 people and three companies, including the indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officials.
