Rudy Giuliani Dangles Pardon For Paul Manafort

The New York Daily News reports:

In one of his most forceful attacks on the special counsel yet, Rudy Giuliani on Friday claimed the Russia investigation could get “cleaned up” with pardons from President Trump in light of Paul Manafort being sent to jail. “When the whole thing is over, things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons,” the former New York mayor told the Daily News.

“I don’t understand the justification for putting him in jail,” Giuliani, 74, said. “You put a guy in jail if he’s trying to kill witnesses, not just talking to witnesses.” “That kind of investigation should not go forward,” Giuliani said. “It’s time for Justice to investigate the investigators.”
