Giuliani: Trump May Pardon After Probe 06/17 10:41

   Rudy Giuliani says President Donald Trump has no plans to issue pardons now 
in the Russia investigation but could choose to do so once the special 
counsel's work is finished.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rudy Giuliani says President Donald Trump has no plans to 
issue pardons now in the Russia investigation but could choose to do so once 
the special counsel's work is finished.

   The president's attorney tells CNN's "State of the Union" that issuing a 
pardon now is not necessary and could cloud what Giuliani believes is a "very 
clear picture of an extremely unfair investigation with no criminality involved 
in it of any kind."

   Giuliani says Trump retains his right to pardon and could do so after 
special counsel Robert Mueller's report is complete, if people were treated 
"unfairly."

   His comments come after onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was 
sent to jail last week after a federal judge revoked his house arrest over 
allegations of witness tampering in the Russia investigation.
