President Trump’s personal attorney is renewing his criticism of the integrity of the special counsel’s investigation.
In an interview Friday Rudy Giuliani said the Mueller team has indicated it believes Paul Manafort lied to prosecutors about the President’s knowledge of a 2016 Trump Tower meeting.
Giuliani says he became aware of the development after speaking with Manafort’s lawyers.
The President’s attorney said Manafort did not lie, and slammed federal prosecutors for their handling of the investigation.
Giuliani says he believes the special counsel is attempting to persuade Manafort to change his story to release him from solitary confinement.
