Rudy Giuliani’s admission that Trump was trying to make a deal with Russia for a Trump Tower Moscow is another step closer to Trump being charged with treason.
Giuliani said according to the transcript of NBC’s Meet The Press:
Well, it’s our understanding that it — that they went on throughout 2016. Weren’t a lot of them, but there were conversations. Can’t be sure of the exact date. But the president can remember having conversations with him about it.
Throughout 2016 —
The president also remembers — yeah, probably up — could be up to as far as October, November. Our answers cover until the election. So anytime during that period they could’ve talked about it. But the president’s recollection of it is that the the thing had petered out quite a bit. They sent a letter of intent in. They didn’t even know where to send it they knew so little about it. They’d finally got it straightened out. And then they abandoned the project. And that’s about as much as he can remember of it. Because, remember, 2015, 2016, he’s running against 16 people for president of the United States. And I know that. I was with him, like, for —
— five months. His concentration was 100% on running for president.
What Giuliani is admitting that Trump did was possibly treasonous, which means that what is Mueller report is likely to be even worse. pic.twitter.com/hV8vvZWfAS

Rudy Giuliani gave the financial motive for Trump treason
Rudy Giuliani for reasons that aren’t obvious admitted that Trump lied during the campaign when he said that he wasn’t trying to do business in Russia. Trump was trying to do business in Russia through Election Day. The motive for Trump selling out his country to the Russians was money. MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace that the motive for Trump’s collusion was that he is bought, owned and paid for by Bussis. Trump is Putin’s property, and the knowledge of Trump’s efforts to do business in Russia puts a new treasonous light on Trump behavior as president.
Rudy Giuliani admitted the motive for potential Trump treason which means that what Mueller has is likely even worse than what Giuliani publicly disclosed.
