The existence/non existence on Mutawatir Hadiths

Question 

A friend of mine alerted me to an argument that a prominent Salafi inclined Shaykh was making about the existence of Mutawatir Hadiths.

He said that not only are there no such thing as Mutawatir Hadiths, but it is impossible to have Mutawatir Hadiths according to the conditions of Mutawatir Hadith and he lists four reasons:

1) All of the Hadith Compilers through which we know Hadiths exist had the possibility of collusion upon a lie. Imam Ahmad met Imam Bukhari and Imam Abu Dawud. Imam Abu Dawud met Imam Nasai and Imam Bukhari met Imam Tirmidhi and Imam Muslim and so on and so forth and in this way, all of the ‘Ulama who compiled Hadiths into books have some link to each other which establishes the possibility of colluding upon a lie and thus, because this is the only way we know of Hadiths existing and because in this way, collusion was possible, no Hadith can be considered Mutawatir.

Ruling of weak narrations that support each other

Question

If a weak Hadith is supported by another weak Hadith then generally that Hadith becomes hasan lighayrihi.

1. What will be the ruling of two weak Hadiths which have the weakness at the same level?

In a case were both the weak narrations, are at the level of Atba’ Al-Tabi’in, there is a weak narrator or there’s jahalah in the rawi. Will both the narrations still be classed as weak or will they elevate to the level of hasan?
