Trump Gives Impromptu Interview on White House Lawn

Because he maintains "no criminality" has been found for those involved, President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani reiterated Sunday there are no plans for presidential pardons stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"Mueller should suspend his investigation, and he should go see Rod Rosenstein, who created him, and the deputy attorney general and Attorney General Sessions, who should now step up big time to save his department", Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Thursday.

He is awaiting a September trial on money laundering and fraud charges. The ruling came after Robert Mueller's investigators alleged Manafort had attempted to tamper with witnesses in the Russian Federation investigation.

The prospect of presidential pardons has been heavily discussed in the two days since former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sent to jail for allegedly tampering with witnesses in the case against him.

"I just said a bunch of illegal things", Giuliani said. Giuliani offered his opinion, citing Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report, that the people handling the Clinton investigation had done "almost everything" incorrectly and are now focused on the Russian Federation probe. Nobody's taking that away from him.

On Friday evening, Trump also tweeted that the judge's decision to put Manafort in jail was a "tough sentence" and added "didn't know Manafort was the head of the Mob".

The IG report found that while former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey may have not followed Federal Bureau of Investigation norms in the way he handled the Clinton probe, he was not politically motivated. He did not specify how soon any pardons could be expected, but indicated that such action would come after the Mueller investigation.

Trump has pardoned several conservative icons in recent weeks, but Giuliani said no one being investigated by Mueller "should rely on it".

Last week Mr Trump declared he thinks the Russian Federation probe is "very biased" and has reservations about being interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The president and his allies have repeatedly called the probe a political "witch hunt" meant to undermine his authority. "Too bad they didn't look at Crooked Hillary like this".

Trump's lawyers have been in negotiations with Mueller's team since the end of a year ago over terms of an interview. Ukrainian parliamentarian Andrii Artemenko, a witness in the Russian Federation investigation who testified before the grand jury, told ABC News that numerous questions from Mueller's team focused on Cohen and his relationship with Russian Federation. "The president wants to do it".
