From the January 16 edition of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time:
CHRIS CUOMO (HOST): Mr. Mayor, false reporting is saying that nobody in the campaign had any contacts with Russia. False reporting is saying that there has been no suggestion of any kind of collusion between the campaign and any Russians. Because now you have Paul Manafort giving poll data that winds up leading to this coincidence —
RUDY GIULIANI: I — I never said — well, you just misstated my position. I never said there was no collusion between the campaign, or between people in the campaign —
CUOMO: Yes, you have.
GIULIANI: I have no idea if — I have not. I said the president of the United States. There is not a single bit of evidence that the president of the United States committed the only crime you could commit here, conspired with the Russians to hack the DNC.
