White House Aide Shuts Acosta Down, Tells Him To Keep Moving

Acosta was shouting, “Mr. President, if there was no collusion, why does Rudy Giuliani consider there to be no crime in collusion?” over many other voices in the room.
“Make your way out. Let’s go. Move, Jim, let’s go. Keep going, Jim. Let’s go. Jim, we’re leaving. Come on, Jim. Go. We’re done,” the aide screamed.
Acosta’s questions were made in regard to the statements Giuliani made earlier in the day while he was appearing on Fox News.
“I’ve been sitting here, looking in the federal code, trying to find collusion as a crime. Collusion is not a crime. Everything that’s been released so far shows the president absolutely innocent. He didn’t do anything wrong,” Giuliani stated. (RELATED: Watch: Rudy Giuliani Claims That ‘Collusion Is Not A Crime’)
