Not even on TeeVee

That's not "walking it back." That's the same argument he uses on obstruction of justice: that without an underlying crime, there can't be any obstruction.

Obstruction, of course, is the crime, separate and apart from any other action. Just as accepting information from a foreign agent is a crime in the context of a political campaign. The quality of the information is irrelevant.  Mere acceptance is the crime. Discussing it with the agent could well be conspiracy, too.
