Giuliani Clashes With Trump On IG Report: 'Don't Think It Exonerates Him'

Giuliani Clashes With Trump On IG Report: 'Don't Think It Exonerates Him'

White House lawyer Rudy Giuliani suggested Sunday that President Donald Trump might pardon his former campaign manager Paul Manafort if he is convicted - but only after special counsel Robert Mueller III has completed his investigation.

Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who earlier served as the high-profile US attorney for the Southern District of New York, has been playing "offense" on Trump's behalf, as he describes his role, attacking not only the tactics but also the very justification of the Mueller-led investigation.

Manafort will remain in jail pending his trial beginning September 17.

In comments to another reporter, Giuliani reportedly said pardons are completely off the table.

President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort woke up Saturday in a Warsaw, Virginia jail, where he will spend many days to come.

"I don't know, but I want to find out before I go forward", Giuliani said when pressed about Strzok. "You put a guy in jail if he's trying to kill witnesses, not just talking to witnesses". "Because you just cloud what is becoming now a very clear picture of an extremely unfair investigation with no criminality involved in it of any kind".

Giuliani said Trump would look into those who were treated "unfairly" in the investigation. "Nobody is taking that away from him".

Trump told Doocy that he is "actually proud because I beat the Clinton dynasty, I beat the Bush dynasty and now, I guess, hopefully, I'm in the process of beating very dishonest intelligence".

Giuliani also addressed a possible interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, saying, "Mueller only gets an interview after he gets thoroughly investigated and we determine his conflicts, the biases and prejudices of his staff".

The report by the Justice Department's watchdog on accusations of misconduct at the FBI didn't touch directly on Mueller's Russian Federation probe, but Trump and his allies seized on it to undercut the investigation that has cast a shadow over the White House.

In a new broadside against the investigation, Trump tweeted, "WITCH HUNT!"

But the president has issued several pardons in recent weeks, which some have interpreted as a signal to affiliates being targeted by Mueller's probe not to cooperate with the investigation. "Oh, I see, there was no Russian Collusion, so now they look for obstruction on the no Russian Collusion", Trump wrote. What about Comey and Crooked Hillary and all of the others?

Signaling some openness to a Trump interview with Mueller's team, Giuliani outlined the possibility under narrow conditions and said he expected Trump to make a decision by July 4.

In a subsequent interview on Sunday with CBS's "Face The Nation" show, Giuliani said the Mueller probe should face both an internal government investigation by the Justice Department's inspector general and a grand jury probe.
