While dodging definitively answering whether he’d consider pardoning Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump again expressed sympathy for his former campaign manager, who could spend the rest of his life behind bars after special counsel Robert Mueller dropped the plea deal with Manafort, alleging Manafort lied to the federal investigators.
