Trump: Even if there was collusion with Russia, 'its not a crime'

President Trump in a new interview denied any collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, adding “even if there was, it’s not a crime.”

Speaking to The New York Times Thursday, Trump praised lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who has argued that Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey was not obstruction of justice because Trump has the right to fire the head of the bureau.

“I watched Alan Dershowitz the other day, he said, No. 1, there is no collusion, No. 2, collusion is not a crime, but even if it was a crime, there was no collusion,” Trump told The Times. “And he said that very strongly. He said there was no collusion. And he has studied this thing very closely. I’ve seen him a number of times.”

4. Collusion might not be a crime but conspiracy sure is. orange thing is right no collusion.

But the conspiracy thing... not good if you are a fat orange person in a position that you CONSPIRED with RUSSIANS to get. Not good. Just because Dershowitz was on MSNBC doing a mock trial and you saw it doesn't mean what he said is the gospel law truth.

I hate him!

8. The cover up is almost always worse than the crime.

That's what will get him... obstruction of justice. And money laundering, bigly.

10. They are the same same.

Collusion = agreeing about something.
Conspiracy = agreeing about something.

Not an eyelash between them.

11. There was no collusion in steal cookies, colluding to steal cookies isn't a crime, ergo these....

15. If I , was going on trial

for a crime I'd absolutely committed, and defense money was no object.

then I would consider using Dershowirz.

Other than that I wouldn't take his word on anything.

17. "Even if I did rape that under-age girl, which I didn't, It's not a crime because nobody

can prove it and because she was asking for it".

18. Collusion is already proven...

We know that Trump's people met with Russians, at least 19 of them, maybe (probably?) more.

I'd say the evidence of conspiracy is close to being proven.
