Rudy Giuliani claims that Mueller investigation “might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons.”

Wanna bet?

In one of his most forceful attacks on the special counsel yet, Giuliani on Friday said 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.

Giuliani’s stunning remark came hours after a Washington, D.C., judge revoked Manafort’s bail and ordered him to remain behind bars while awaiting his September trial on charges relating to his shady pro-Russian business dealings in Ukraine. The ruling came after Mueller’s investigators alleged the ex-Trump campaign chairman had attempted to secure false testimony from potential witnesses in the Russia probe.

Giuliani, who worked as a federal prosecutor for nearly a decade, claimed he had seen no evidence to warrant locking up Manafort.

“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.”

Well, the judge who just tossed Manafort into the clink certainly did not agree with Giuliani on that.

This so-called “America’s Mayor” also suggested upping the attacks against Mueller.

“That kind of investigation should not go forward,” Giuliani said. “It’s time for Justice to investigate the investigators.”

Of course, we saw Trump do just that this morning, and if I had the stomach to turn on Fox News right now they would invariably be trumpeting those same talking points. 

However as Rachel Maddow pointed out just last month, Trump really does not have the power to pardon everybody.

She also mentioned on another segment that since there are a number of Russians who have been charged, that Trump would also have to pardon THEM in order to shut this whole investigation down. 

And THAT would open up a whole new can of obstructionism for the FBI to investigate.

    ” is considering a plea deal to avoid prosecution in the case.”
    “Cohen has secretly done the dirty work for Donald Trump and his associates under the protective umbrella of ‘attorney-client privilege.’ This isn’t really legal work but pretending it was helped ensure it stayed secret. The gig may be up.”
