Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team believes Paul Manafort lied when he said President Trump didn’t know about an infamous June 2016 sitdown in Trump Tower that Manafort and Trump’s son and son-in-law had with Kremlin-connected Russians, according to the president’s lawyer. Rudy Giuliani told CNN that Manafort told the truth when he said Trump didn’t know about the infamous sitdown. Donald Trump Jr. accepted the meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who has ties to the Kremlin, Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin and publicist Rob Goldstone after they promised to deliver dirt on Hillary Clinton. Manafort and Jared Kushner were also in the meeting, which Trump Jr. called a bust. “In the questioning of Manafort, they did tell them at the time that they believed he was lying about certain things related to us that he’s not lying about,” Giuliani told CNN. According to Giuliani, investigators told Manafort they didn’t believe that Trump did not know about the meeting. Giuliani, who got the information from Manafort’s attorneys, accused Mueller’s team of trying to force Manafort to say Trump knew about it. “They repeated that conduct over and over and over again, which gives us a clear indication of what they want him to say in order to get him out of solitary confinement. I find that abominable,” said Giuliani.
