President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort has not told special counsel Robert Mueller’s team anything damaging about Trump, the President’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told Reuters. 

Under a special agreement, Manafort’s lawyers have kept Trump’s legal team apprised of what Manafort shares with federal prosecutors. Manafort agreed to cooperate with Mueller’s team in order to avoid a second trial related to his financial dealings.

    And you know this how, Rudy?

    Manafort and his lawyers aren’t talking to Rudy or anyone from the Trump camp; doing so would put the plea deal at risk. Mueller’s team certainly isn’t talking. Rudy’s pulling crap out of his ass again, as usual.

  2. There’s like ten reasons not to believe this. Maybe include a couple in the blurb? Because otherwise this is stenography.

    Which is dumber, Rudy or Rudy’s mental image of the American public?

    Goodness gracious.

  4. Best part of the Reuters article:

    Giuliani said he did not know why Manafort’s lawyer is sharing information with him.

  5. Yeah,right. Like you’re in the know.
