Amid Manafort Prosecution, Giuliani Says Trump ‘Retains His Pardon Power’

Donald Trump's personal lawyer on Sunday called for an investigation into special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, claiming it was tainted from the outset under former FBI director James Comey.

The former NY mayor suggested that an end to the investigation could be in sight one way or the other.

He will be confined to jail until his trial in September.

"There's a lot of unfairness out there, but we don't know the scope of it", Giuliani said.

Giuliani today that Trump was trying to send a message to Paul Manafort, who was the 2016 chairman for almost five months, or others to refrain from cooperating with prosecutors.

"I don't want to do it", Giuliani said, referring to a Mueller interview with Trump. "You put a guy in jail if he's trying to kill witnesses, not just talking to witnesses".


"You are not going to get a pardon just because you are involved in this investigation", Giuliani said on CNN's "State of the Union," adding, "but you are certainly not excluded from it if, in fact, the president and his advisers, not me, come to the conclusion that you have been treated unfairly". "Nobody is taking that away from him".

But he didn't rule out Trump pardoning people after the investigation was done.

In a new broadside against the investigation, Trump tweeted, "WITCH HUNT!" He made clear on Sunday his view of Mueller's investigation, saying it was "on pretty weak grounds right now". Oh, I see, there was no Russian Collusion, so now they look for obstruction on the no Russian Collusion.

U.S. President Donald Trump stepped up his offensive on Friday against Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling, declaring it "totally discredited" following the release of a watchdog report documenting failings by the FBI. What about Comey and Crooked Hillary and all of the others?

The report also criticized FBI agent Strzok and former FBI lawyer Page, who were having an affair, for exchanging anti-Trump text messages that "cast a cloud" over the credibility of the investigation, but found no evidence "that these political views directly affected the specific investigative decisions that we reviewed". "The president wants to do it".
