US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to say that collusion isn't a crime, and that he never colluded with anyone.
"I've been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a federal crime", Giuliani said on Fox & Friends Monday morning.
"I think they're getting closer to knowing that the truth's going to come out, that there was activities with the Trump campaign in Russian Federation in releasing those hacks and guiding them to the states and the localities where they came from".
"I can't keep with Rudy Giuliani's theories of defense", Durbin said. "Collusion is not a crime".
His comments regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election raised the eyebrows of many observers, who suggested Giuliani was seeking to change the standard for wrongdoing by the president and those around him as special counsel Robert S. Mueller III continues to investigate.

Barrasso Meets With Supreme Court Nominee Judge Kavanaugh
Earlier this month, Trump nominated Kavanaugh , a federal appeals court judge, to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. The Kentucky Republican previously expressed reservations about Kavanaugh's opinion on privacy and national security.
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. But, as his attorney Rudolph Giuliani did on Monday, Trump muddied those waters today.
THE FACTS: It is correct to say that election collusion isn't a precise legal term. But its outcome is being watched closely since it is the first case brought by Mueller's legal team that has gone to trial.
Manafort was charged with conspiracy and other offenses related to the millions of dollars he allegedly made working for the Ukrainian government many years before he worked for the Trump campaign.
So I know what you're thinking: why should we trust this guy who has ties to someone Trump has accused of bias and dishonesty?
If Trump or his aides knew in advance that Russian Federation had the trove of stolen emails and did nothing to alert federal authorities, they could be accused of covering up the crime of stolen emails or working as foreign agents.
