The Russia Investigations: What The Justice IG Report Revealed

Comey had commented on the report earlier when he said he disagrees with some of its conclusions. He

In February, Trump's former deputy campaign manager, Rick Gates, pleaded guilty to lying to investigators and to numerous same financial-crime charges brought against Manafort, Gates' former boss.

The report also criticized FBI agent Strzok and former FBI lawyer Page, who were having an affair, for exchanging anti-Trump text messages that "cast a cloud" over the credibility of the investigation, but found no evidence "that these political views directly affected the specific investigative decisions that we reviewed".

When asked to clarify his statement the interviewer was met with laughter from the Republican New Yorker.

President Donald Trump declared on Thursday that the inspector general's report into Hillary Clinton's email investigation "totally exonerates" him in the Russian Federation investigation, but his lawyer Rudy Giuliani doesn't agree.

Mr. Trump has sought to use the report to discredit Mr. Mueller's investigation, although it didn't address the topic.

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters at the White House, Friday, June 15, 2018, in Washington.

Both of the agents held top positions in both the FBI's Clinton and Trump investigations. The attorney had been assigned to the Clinton investigation and to the Mueller probe, but left that team in February, according to the report.

"I believe that the Mueller investigation should be investigated, not because necessarily of Mueller, but because of its genesis in this very, very now completely nearly illegal and unethical probe, this Russian probe, that began with Peter Strzok in charge".

"I'm saying what led up to the special counsel".

"I think it would be more helpful if the president never mentioned the word "pardon" again with respect to the investigation", Sen.

Trump fired Comey in May past year, later admitting that the Russian Federation probe was on his mind when he did so, which in turn ramped up suspicions of obstruction of justice.

Giuliani's remarks come two days after Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sent to jail to await trial on more than 20 charges as part of the special counsel's probe.

"There was no Russian Collusion". "I did nothing wrong, there was no obstruction. The phony Russian Collusion was a made up Hoax", Trump tweeted on Sunday. What about Comey and Crooked Hillary and all of the others?

Giuliani denied that Trump was trying to send a message to Paul Manafort, who was the 2016 chairman for almost five months, or others to refrain from cooperating with prosecutors. Mueller is also investigating questions of whether Trump improperly sought to obstruct the probe, such as by firing James Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, and if Trump refuses an interview, Mueller could resort to a subpoena to compel testimony.

"Strzok should be in jail by the end of next week", he ended. "I don't know, but I want to find out before I go forward", Giuliani said.
