On June 15, a federal judge ordered Paul Manafort to jail, saying that President Trump’s former campaign chairman had attempted to tamper with witnesses while he awaits trial on money-laundering and federal conspiracy charges springing from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election. Later that day, Rudolph W. Giuliani, a Trump attorney, spoke with the New York Daily News about Mueller’s investigation. “When the whole thing is over,” Giuliani said, “things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons.”
