Trump Dubs Robert Mueller's Russia Probe 'illegal'

Starr also contrasted Clinton's and Trump's styles, saying, "Bill Clinton had a very different style - charismatic, attractive and so forth - whereas Donald Trump comes directly at you as a NY street fighter".

US President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has pleaded guilty to two federal crimes after cutting a deal with prosecutors and agreeing to cooperate with the special counsel's Russian Federation probe.

The agreement also calls for Manafort to "cooperate fully, truthfully, completely, and forthrightly" in "any and all matters" the government "deems the cooperation relevant".

U.S. President Donald Trump claimed Sunday, without evidence, that the ongoing criminal investigation into his 2016 campaign's links to Russian Federation is "not allowed under the law".

Under the terms of Friday's plea deal, prosecutors dropped the bulk of the charges against Manafort, filing new paperwork that includes just two charges: conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice. So Manafort seems to have calculated that since he couldn't count on Trump coming through for him, his only chance to avoid spending the rest of his days behind bars was to talk.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani slammed the talking heads in a tweet for ignoring a "clear statement" from Manafort's lawyers that he is not cooperating against Trump and a statement that "there was no collusion".

The agreement makes Manafort the latest associate of Trump, a president known to place a premium on loyalty among subordinates, to admit guilt and work with investigators in hopes of leniency. "It's bad because he doesn't know what Manafort is saying", Dershowitz told "Meet the Press".

Earlier this summer, Trump had sought his lawyer's advice on pardoning his former aides, including Manafort.

Trump's former personal lawyer and fixer pleaded guilty in federal court last month to campaign-finance violations and other charges, saying Trump directed him to arrange the payment of hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels and a former Playboy model in the run-up to the 2016 campaign.

I spoke to Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, who said we can not be sure of the outlines of the deal they made.

Starr acknowledged that Trump has the right to pardon Manafort, which the President has reportedly discussed with his legal team, but said such a move would be "unwise".

- He has information about crimes, but they have nothing to do with the Trump campaign.

Prosecutors will want to quiz him about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians when Mr Trump's eldest son expected to get derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, who had won the Democratic nomination.

Among the three condos to be forfeited is Manafort's Trump Tower apartment on Fifth Avenue, which is estimated to be worth $3 million in market value, according to Zillow.

Once again, Robert Mueller's "witch hunt" has caught itself a witch. It was one of the trademarks of a man who made millions by representing a motley crew of African big men and eastern European autocrats throughout his lobbying career. But Giuliani said he counseled Trump that he shouldn't consider such a pardon until after Mueller's investigation was completed, and the president understood.

He's not necessarily being convicted for election interference, but he has agreed to provide full cooperation to the special counsel leading the investigation.
