The New York Times reports that law enforcement officials became so concerned by President Donald Trump's behaviour in the days after he fired FBI Director James Comey that they began investigating whether he had been working for Russian Federation against United States interests.
"Campaigns leak polling data all the time", Giuliani said, before decrying the focus on the investigation as a "joke" and "total mockery" that "only happens because 75 percent of the press hates Trump". The smart bet would be that the phrase "witch hunt" and the caps-lock button would be involved.
"As far as we're concerned, everything is over", Giuliani told Reuters. And we already knew that Manafort - along with Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner - met with Russians including Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in June 2016, a meeting that had been set up under the auspices that the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton!
Giuliani said the ball was now in the special counsel's court. An FBI spokeswoman and a spokesman for the special counsel's office both declined to comment. Trump has also repeatedly and vociferously denied collusion with the Russians. It is unclear what happened to the probe after that.
Mueller is believed to be investigating whether Comey's firing and other actions amount to obstruction of justice by the president.

"We have a memo from a number of campaign finance experts that paying what they call hush money, since it has a personal goal, is not considered a campaign contribution", Giuliani said.
