Giuliani says Trump could issue pardons after Russia probe

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani stepped up calls for an investigation into the legitimacy of Robert Mueller's appointment as a special counsel to investigate alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Manafort was jailed last week over charges that he attempted to tamper with witnesses related to his pending trial on federal conspiracy and money-laundering charges.

Despite dinging the FBI for a series of leaks, bad decisions and personal opinions suggesting political bias, the inspector general said that bias didn't skew the initial investigation into Hillary Clinton's email practices.

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. "My advice to him, you know, as long as I'm his lawyer, is not to do it because you just cloud what is becoming now a very clear picture of a very unfair investigation", Giuliani told Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union".

"We want the Mueller probe to be investigated the way the Trump investigation's been investigated, and we'd like to see a report with the conclusions", Giuliani said. "Nobody is taking that away from him".

The Russia probe, Guiliani says, is illegal because of its genesis, and not because of Special Counsel Robert Mueller who, Trump's lawyer claims, should not be investigated.

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

"WITCH HUNT! There was no Russian Collusion".

Strzok was a lead investigator during the inquiry into Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's past use of a private email server, and he worked with Mueller's team investigating any potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

If Giuliani's suggestion is implemented, it would start the biggest clash of Trump's presidency. "Double Standard!" His reference to "Crooked Hillary" is his oft-repeated pejorative for his 2016 challenger, Democrat Hillary Clinton.

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. Giuliani said he is opposed to having an interview but "the president wants to do it so we have to sort through it".

President Donald Trump applauded a review of how the FBI investigated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Friday while calling its conclusion flawed.
