"Special Report" anchor Bret Baier said Thursday that President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani needed to issue a "cleanup" statement after claiming he never said there was "no collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russians. 

In an interview on CNN, he raised eyebrows by claiming, "I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign... I have not. I said the President of the United States."

Giuliani emphasized that Trump himself never colluded with Russia on their interference in the 2016 election and did not "conspire" in the hacking of the DNC emails. 

Baier said it was obvious Thursday morning that the former New York City mayor needed to clarify the "rhetorical evolution," which Giuliani has since done. 

In a statement, Giuliani said "I have no knowledge of any collusion by any of the thousands of people who worked on the campaign."

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

"I think we're getting to the peak here," he predicted.
