Rudy Giuliani on Friday sent a signal to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort by hinting that he will get pardoned by President Donald Trump after the conclusion of the Russia probe.
Specifically, Giuliani told New York Daily News reporter Chris Sommerfeldt that, with regards to Manafort, "things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons" once "this whole thing is over."

Giuliani also decried Manafort having his house arrest privileges revoked by a judge after it was revealed that he tried to tamper with witnesses who may have been called to testify against him.
"You put a guy in jail if he’s trying to kill witnesses, not just talking to witnesses!" Giuliani said.
