President Donald Trump on Tuesday responded to the guilty verdict against his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort by saying he felt “very badly” for Manafort.
Trump emphasized that the charges against Manafort “had nothing to do with Russian collusion.”
“We continue the witch hunt!” he said before turning away from news cameras, having made no mention of Michael Cohen’s guilty plea in New York.
