Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Fox News talking head Sean Hannity that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe should be suspended "tomorrow" and named a list of people he thinks should be in jail. "I don't know, but I want to find out before I go forward", Giuliani said when pressed about Strzok.

Speaking on The Washington Post report Sunday of Roger Stone's newest revelation he had met with someone offering dirt on Hillary Clinton for a sum of $2 million, Giuliani rejected any notion President Trump had knowledge of that May 2016 meeting Stone characterized as a "waste of time". "The way Ronald Reagan did". "And my advice to him, you know, as long as I'm his lawyer, is not to do it because you just cloud what is becoming now a very clear picture of an extremely unfair investigation with no criminality involved in it of any kind". He retains his pardon power. Nobody's taking that away from him. He can pardon, in his judgment'.

"This not middle school", U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said at the ruling on Friday as a way of explaining the decision to jail Manafort.

Trump has worked outside the traditional pardon process and used his clemency powers in cases where he believed prosecutors may have been motivated by politics.

Mr. Giuliani also addressed whether the president might pardon people caught up in Mr. Mueller's investigation.

The former mayor of NY, who is part of the President's legal team in the Russian Federation investigation, was on Staten Island campaigning for Republican Rep. Dan Donovan.

Giuliani called for Mueller to suspend his investigation after Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his highly anticipated report on Thursday. The investigation, which he said should be led by the Justice Department, should look into the special counsel "not necessarily because of Mueller but because of its genesis in this nearly completely illegal and unethical probe".

"Going back to Nixon, Ford. even Bush and Clinton. these pardons happened in these political investigations", Giuliani said.

"We want the Mueller probe to be investigated the way the Trump investigation's been investigated, and we'd like to see a report with the conclusions", Giuliani said.

Bannon suggested that Trump should order Rosenstein to comply in the next two days with every subpoena he has received from congressional committees. If you're going to do it, probably this is the time to do it, to cut it off. With the exposure of all this, as we go into it, we're going to get into the substrate and the foundation of the entire Mueller investigation'.

Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said he was "deeply troubled" by these missives, including one text exchange in which a senior Federal Bureau of Investigation official asks: Trump's "not ever going to become president, right?"

"We want the Mueller probe to be investigated", Giuliani said Sunday. "What we'd really like is something responded to in writing".
