"The only knowledge I have in this regard is the collusion of the Clinton campaign with Russian Federation which has so far been ignored", the presidential attorney continued.

The comments came after Mr Giuliani was asked about court papers which revealed Paul Manafort, a former campaign chairman, had shared polling data with an associate the USA has tied to Russian intelligence.

On Thursday, Giuliani sought to clarify his remarks, saying, "I represent only President Trump not the Trump campaign".

In the first report, The New York Times said the FBI opened an investigation into whether Mr Trump was acting on Russia's behalf soon after he became president.

Donald Trump's personal lawyer gave a combative interview to CNN on Wednesday night, in which he appeared to backtrack on the White House's official stance on allegations of collusion with Russian Federation.

"Donald Trump wasn't giving polling data to anyone", Giuliani said, adding, "he did not know about it until it was revealed a few weeks ago in an article". The president's attorney immediately cut in.

Baier noted on "America's Newsroom" that the "sense" around Washington, D.C., is that the report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looming.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is part of Donald Trump's legal team.

Cuomo to the contrary notwithstanding, I believe that Trump himself has acknowledged the possibility while denying that he himself committed any such wrongdoing.
