Todd acknowledged judging by the report’s accounting of fairly a couple of contacts between Trump advertising and marketing marketing campaign aides and Russian operatives that it appears they wished to.
“Oh my goodness. If somebody on the campaign wanted to do something wrong – a lot of people on Hillary Clinton’s campaign wanted to do something wrong,” Giuliani acknowledged.
“We go right to the fact that did Trump or anyone from the Trump campaign participate in the dissemination of hacked materials? The answer is no. It had already been disseminated. So he is free, clear of allegations,” Giuliani acknowledged.
Todd questioned why as a result of the president rails at Mueller he doesn’t seem like offended at Moscow for interfering throughout the election and creating the impression that Trump’s victory was illegitimate.”
