But collusion is not a specific offense or theory of liability found in the U.S. Code; nor is it a term of art in federal criminal law. To the contrary, even as defined in legal dictionaries, collusion is largely synonymous with conspiracy as that crime is set forth in the general federal conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. §371. See Black's Law Dictionary 321 (10th ed. 2014) (collusion is “[a]n agreement to defraud another or to do or obtain something forbidden by law"); 1 Alexander Burrill, A Law Dictionary and Glossary 311 (1871) (“An agreement between two or more persons to defraud another by the forms of law, or to employ such forms as means of accomplishing some unlawful object."); 1 Bouvier's Law Dictionary 352 (1897) (“An agreement between two or more persons to defraud a person of his rights by the forms of law, or to obtain an object forbidden by law.").

For that reason, this Office's focus in resolving the question of joint criminal liability was on conspiracy as defined in federal law, not the commonly discussed term "collusion.”

So why did Barr keep using the word "collusion"?

Mueller report shows Russians, Trump camp were friends with benefits. Collusion by another name?
Analysis: Mueller didn't find a conspiracy he could prove, but did show that the Russians and the Trump team pursued a relationship during the election and after.

Indeed, benefits among friends, well how convenient! Some may even call it COLLUSION. The Mueller report is most interesting! Those who have not yet read it may not be aware of this information amid all of the redacting that has been done which is most unfortunate. But it doesn't exonerate Trump either. We would obviously learn a lot more as we should without all the obfuscation.
Yes, if they want to avoid the word 'colluding', then we can just say that all the Trump people were cavorting with the Russians, nyet?

And canoodling with the Russians, nyet?

And cooperating with the Russians, nyet?

And consulting with the Russians, nyet?

And convivifying with the Russians, nyet?

But I like cavorting & canoodling the best! Those sound like the most fun, nyet?
