Trump Dismisses IG Report’s Bias Conclusion as ‘Ridiculous’

Giuliani demands Mueller suspend Russia probe

Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that President Donald Trump will not issue pardons on behalf of his associates in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, noting that Trump could always hand out pardons after the investigation ends instead.

"When the whole thing is over, things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons", Giuliani told the New York Daily News. Shortly after his appointment, the investigation into Russian 2016 election collusion expanded, reaching the Trump Campaign, and President Trump himself.

Giuliani responded equally directly, and covered more ground than just Manafort.

"When you read the report, it's nearly like Comey, he goes point after point about how guilty Hillary is, and then he said, 'But we're not going to do anything about it.' The IG report was a horror show, I thought that one line of conclusion was ridiculous", Trump said.

"I believe that the Mueller investigation should be investigated not because necessarily of Mueller but because of its genesis in this very, very now completely nearly illegal and unethical probe, this Russian probe", he said.

"He retains his pardon power", Giuliani told CNN's Jake Tapper on State of the Union.

"When the whole thing is over, things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons", the former NY mayor told the Daily News.

The tension surrounding the investigation escalated on Friday, when a U.S. District Court judge revoked Manafort's bail after Mueller's team brought new charges of witness tampering, alleging that Manafort tried to influence two government witnesses who might testify against him at trial.

Watch the clip above, courtesy of CNN. The investigation, which he said should be led by the Justice Department, should look into the special counsel "not necessarily because of Mueller but because of its genesis in this nearly completely illegal and unethical probe".

But Trump has seized on the report as fodder for his decision to fire Comey last May.

"We now have an investigation that in the words of President Donald Trump, has been a fix, a frame up and a witch hand".

"I certainly didn't know about it", Giuliani said.

He said he would advise Trump against such actions during the probe "Because you just cloud what is becoming now a very clear picture of an extremely unfair investigation with no criminality involved of any kind". What about Comey and Crooked Hillary and all of the others? The report notes that Strzok told investigators the missive was meant to reassure Page generally and that it was not indicative of any planned behavior to influence the probe. "Double Standard!" he added, referring to his 2016 Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton.

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