President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on Friday suggested that the president might try to “clean up” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation — in the form of pardons.
“When the whole thing is over, things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons,” Giuliani, also a former federal prosecutor and former New York City mayor, told The New York Daily News. He didn’t appear to elaborate.
He later suggested that any pardons would come after the investigation was over. “He is not going to pardon anybody in this investigation, but he is not obviously going to give up his right to pardon if a miscarriage of justice is presented to him after the investigation,” Giuliani told CNN.
Mueller accused Manafort and his associate, Konstantin Kilimnik of Moscow, of obstructing justice in the investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates in 2016.
