President Trump’s legal team said Friday that former campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s cooperation agreement with federal prosecutors had “nothing to do with President Trump or the Trump campaign.”

“The reason: the President did nothing wrong,” Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani said in a statement.

According to CNBC reporter Eamon Javers, Trump’s attorneys predicted in an initial statement that Manafort “will tell the truth,” before sending out a “corrected” version of the statement stripped of that line.
