President Trump’s crack lawyer kept working the cable news outlets to stick up for his boss. Rudy Giuliani pointed out that, after Trump and crew have been saying “no collusion” nonstop for months, if there was collusion it’s no big deal and is not even a crime. Rudy is out there downplaying collusion in anticipation of … hmmmm.

Seems like there is another shoe that will soon fall. But don’t worry about Democracy and stuff, President Trump definitely did not actually pay for any election hacking and is therefore not in criminal jeopardy, according to his legal-eagle spokesman.

On Wednesday, Trump called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the “Rigged Witch Hunt,” which is a little more Twitter obstruction fodder for Robert Mueller. So, whatever the Trump campaign did, it wasn’t collusion and if it was collusion, collusion is no big deal after all, right? Never mind that it’s not about the word itself, it’s about the illegal activities that happened.
