Giuliani: Manafort plea deal not concerning

Rudy Giuliani said on Friday that Paul Manafort's plea deal to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller is of no concern.

Giuliani explained that if Manafort had incriminating evidence on United States President Donald Trump, Mueller "would have had him plead to a conspiracy that would encompass the president."

Earlier, Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges. Manafort admitted to crimes relating to his consulting work before he joined Trump's campaign in 2016 but the extent of his cooperation with Mueller remains unclear.
