Trump Lawyer Giuliani: "President's 'Not Going To Pardon Anybody' â " Yet

18 June 2018
Trump Lawyer Giuliani:

Unlike former President Bill Clinton's videotaped testimony in the Whitewater investigation, Giuliani indicated his preference for that only the audio of the interview be recorded.

"I don't understand the justification for putting him in jail", Giuliani told the Daily News.

A federal judge revoked Manafort's $10 million bond Friday after he was charged with obstruction for allegedly tampering with witnesses in the pending criminal cases against him.

"I don't think that's the interpretation", Giuliani responded.

"The president has issued no pardons in this investigation".

Giuliani has argued that Trump cannot be indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russian Federation investigation, but could face impeachment if he has done something wrong. "I want that to come out loud and clear and not get clouded by anybody fired or anybody getting pardoned". And while Comey mishandled the investigation into whether Clinton misused the email server as secretary of state, Schumer said, "it was Trump who benefited from all these mistakes".

The next day, Giuliani reiterated that the investigation should be suspended but said there should also be an investigation into Mueller's probe.

Giuliani, an outspoken attorney for the President, repeatedly suggested the probe had questionable origins and echoed some of the President's rhetoric about the investigation being unfair.

"I don't want to do it", Giuliani. Manafort is accused of witness tampering in a criminal case that stems from his lobbying efforts for Ukraine years before he was a top Trump aide for almost five months during the 2016 campaign. "We have no reason to believe that could possibly change unless somebody made a decision to lie or somebody chose to frame us", he said. "We would like to see it limited to some specific questions about the heart of the probe - the Russian alleged collusion".

The president weighed in Sunday on Twitter with his opinion of the Mueller probe, again calling it a "WITCH HUNT!" and declaring that law enforcement officials had a "Double Standard!" in their investigations of him and Hillary Clinton.

"Too bad they didn't look at Crooked Hillary like this".

Later Sunday, Giuliani said on CBS' Face the Nation that he would continue to push for such an internal review as a condition in the ongoing negotiations with Mueller who is seeking an interview with Trump in the Russian Federation inquiry. "The president wants to do it".

There is no indication when Mueller's investigation might end.

But he added that he "couldn't possibly" agree to an interview with Mueller "until we know how badly this investigation" was affected by bias among FBI agents castigated in the recently released inspector general's report.
