Trump debuts new, incoherent talking point about collusion with Russia

"Collusion is not a crime" -- unless you're Hillary Clinton.

After many months of unequivocally insisting there was “NO COLLUSION” between his campaign and Russia, President Trump hinted at a retreat on Tuesday — tweeting that “Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn’t matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!”

Beyond the obvious absurdity of accusing Hillary Clinton of colluding with Russia to defeat herself — after her campaign was the target of Kremlin-orchestrated cyberattacks that were publicly encouraged by Trump and used for pro-Trump propaganda operations — Trump’s “collusion is not a crime” talking point contradicts his previous stance on the matter.

Just over two months ago, Trump wondered why special counsel Robert Mueller wasn’t investigating his 2016 opponent for potential collusion. Apparently, collusion isn’t a crime unless you’re Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s new talking point attempting to downplay the severity of collusion isn’t limited to the president himself.
