Trump could issue Russia pardons: Giuliani

Trump could issue Russia pardons: Giuliani

Giuliani has called for the suspension of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, until the inspector general completes a report on his investigation.

"The president is not going to issue pardons in this investigation", he said on CNN. "I want that to come out loud and clear".

In the exchange, Strzok told Page he "might be willing" to take action to stop then-GOP presidential candidate Trump from winning the election.

Yesterday, however, as The Hill noted, Giuliani contradicted President Trump, saying the IG report does not exonerate him, although it dramatically supports some of his client's positions. He retains his pardon power. "I couldn't and I don't want to take any prerogatives away from him". His trial for the Washington case is set for September, but he has another trial scheduled in Virginia for related charges in July. In February, Trump's former deputy campaign manager, Rick Gates, pleaded guilty to lying to investigators and to numerous same financial-crime charges brought against Manafort, Gates' former boss. The text messages, which prompted his removal from special counsel Robert Mueller's team a year ago, have been Exhibit A in the case Trump and his conservative allies have made that Mueller's probe is biased against Trump. There should be a full and complete [inspector general] report and grand jury investigation of what happened here, after it became the Russian Federation probe.

The President has previously said that the Justice Department inspector general's report is a "total disaster" for the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, whom he fired in May of previous year.

It also said, according to the new IG report, that Comey was deliberately drawing out the Clinton email investigation to help Republicans.

Giuliani called for investigation of the origins of the Mueller investigation, contending it was "premised on Comey's illegally leaked memo" about the FBI's director's private conversations with Trump.

"Not because necessarily of Mueller, but because of its genesis in this very, very, now completely nearly illegal and unethical probe, this Russian probe".

"I know Jeff [Sessions] really, really well and I think he's, you know, in certain respects did a great job". "Mueller only gets an interview after he gets thoroughly investigated and we determine his conflicts, the biases and prejudices of his staff", Giuliani said.

"WITCH HUNT! There was no Russian Collusion", said Trump. "The phony Russian Collusion was a made up Hoax".

Pakistani Taliban chief allegedly killed in United States drone strike
A USA official said the US believes that it is likely the strike killed Fazlullah, but efforts are ongoing to confirm his death. The Pakistani Taliban is a separate group to the Afghan Taliban, which the USA has been battling since 2001 in Afghanistan.

Trump has not yet spoken to Mueller as part of the probe, and Giuliani suggested Sunday that he should not do so under oath - pointing to Trump's recent backpedaling on how he characterized his son Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer as evidence of why it's hard to sort out "a lot of different recollections". What about Comey and Crooked Hillary and all of the others?

"This not middle school", U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said at the ruling on Friday as a way of explaining the decision to jail Manafort. Giuliani said they're not concerned that prosecutors obtained more than 700 pages of Cohen's encrypted texts and have pieced together 16 pages of shredded papers.

"I just said a bunch of illegal things", Giuliani said.

"I doubt it", he said.

Meaning what? Not only did the Russians influence the conduct of American officials with a questionable document - the use of forgeries is a long-standing aspect of active measures - but also the American officials involved here knew the material nearly certainly wasn't real. "It's news to me, I just read it here in The Washington Post".
