Following news on Friday that Paul Manafort had struck a plea deal with prosecutors and agreed to cooperate with the Russia investigation, President Donald Trump’s personal defense attorney said he wasn’t worried about the president’s potential legal exposure.

“Paul Manafort is not going to talk to [the special counsel] Robert Mueller about Trump or the Trump campaign,” Rudy Giuliani told Business Insider in a phone interview Friday evening. “His cooperation deal does not include an agreement to do that. He’s only cooperating on matters related to the two indictments against him and others named in those indictments.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Giuliani doubled down on his statement Saturday morning, tweeting, “According to sources close to Manafort defense: ‘The coooeration [sic] agree does not involve the Trump campaign….There was no collusion with Russia.’ Another road travelled by Mueller. Same conclusion: no evidence of collusion President did nothing wrong.”

Late Saturday, Giuliani further denied any concern with a tweet that read, “#REALNEWS: Woodward says no evidence of Collusion. So does Manafort’s team. Mueller can investigate endlessly and he will find no evidence. The only conspiracy, using criminal means, is the campaign to stop and then remove President Trump.”

Business Insider further reported:

Jeffrey Cramer, a longtime former federal prosecutor who spent 12 years at the Justice Department, said that while Giuliani’s statement could theoretically be true, it’s unlikely that Mueller would agree to a cooperation deal with the former chairman of the Trump campaign if it didn’t help him snag a bigger fish.
