READ: Rudy Giuliani Revises Statement on Paul Manafort’s Plea Deal to Remove ‘Paul Manafort Will Tell the Truth’

Okayyy.

As the news broke Friday that Paul Manafort, former chairman of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, had entered into a cooperation agreement with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Trump’s TV lawyer Rudy Giuliani insisted that it had nothing to do with Trump.

“Once again, an investigation has concluded with a plea having nothing to do with President Trump or the Trump campaign,” Giuliani said in a statement. “The reason: the President did nothing wrong and Paul Manafort will tell the truth.”

Not long after his initial statement, however, the former New York City mayor had changed his tune.

“The president did nothing wrong,” Giuliani reiterated, omitting his previous assertion that Manafort would tell the truth.

Giuliani said earlier this week that Trump and Manafort had a joint defense agreement in place, but that a potential cooperation agreement between Manafort and Mueller wasn’t of concern because Trump, allegedly, did nothing wrong.

Twitter’s reaction to Giuliani: ‘really, like, really?’

Perhaps Giuliani, like a biblical prophecy peddler, needs to make up a new date for when Mueller will wrap up his investigation.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that Manafort’s arrangement with Mueller “had absolutely nothing to do with the president or his victorious 2016 presidential campaign. It is totally unrelated.”

NBC News reported on Friday that Manafort “agreed to forfeit multiple properties and bank accounts and to cooperate with investigators, including participating in interviews, providing documents and testifying.”
