The reaction to Giuliani’s admission that Trump campaign colluded with Russia is bad news for Trump


President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani made a stunning admission on Wednesday night in yet another desperate effort to protect his client, and former federal prosecutors were among many others who had a lot to say about it on Twitter.

During a contentious interview on CNN, Giuliani found himself backed into a corner by Chris Cuomo, who spent the entire time relentlessly fact-checking Trump’s attorney, who finally slipped up and admitted that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.

In short, he threw the Trump campaign team under the bus.

“I never said there was no collusion by the campaign or between people in the campaign,” he said.

The statement came as quite a shock because Giuliani and Trump have both consistently insisted that there was “no collusion” at all.

It’s also bad news for Trump as former federal prosecutors, ethics lawyers, journalists, and law enforcement officials pointed out in their reactions on Twitter.

Clearly, Giuliani made an error that no competent lawyer would ever make, and Trump must be fuming about it. Because now Special Counsel Robert Mueller has more reasons to continue the Russia investigation.
