President Trump's Latest Statement Has Paul Manafort's Interest Piqued

Linkedin Share

Robert Mueller and his intrepid band of investigators seem to know that they are standing very squarely in the vicinity of the proverbial chopping block.

Having received written answers to their questions from the President himself, one can only imagine that a final report on the allegation of Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin is forthcoming, post haste.  Robert Mueller certainly wouldn’t risk gaining these long sought after bits of information and then simply waiting for acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker to starve his investigation of funds.

No, Mueller is likely circling his final prey, waiting for a chance to make his snatching maneuver.

The President certainly understands this as well, and has not been shy about prodding the Special Counsel.  The Commander in Chief’s latest sentiment regarding Paul Manafort has undoubtedly been on Robert Mueller’s mind this afternoon.

A pardon for ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort is not “off the table,” President Trump said on Wednesday following a report that Manafort’s lawyer has briefed Trump’s lawyers about his testimony in the Russia investigation.

Trump told the New York Post that he hasn’t talked about clemency for Manafort but that the door remains open.

“It was never discussed, but I wouldn’t take it off the table. Why would I take it off the table?” Trump told the newspaper.

Trump’s interview followed a report late Tuesday in The New York Times that Manafort’s attorney has been briefing Trump’s lawyers about what Manafort has been telling investigators with Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.

President Trump, possibly sensing that Mueller himself is becoming cornered, a blunt and threatening messagetweeted to his opponents.
