Strzok is at the center of the controversy over the FBI's handling of both the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump investigations, as he exchanged thousands of text messages with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, including many anti-Trump messages.
Rudy Giuliani speaks at the Iran Freedom Convention for Human Rights and democracy in Washington, May 5, 2018.
As former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort spent his first weekend in jail pending trial on charges brought by the special counsel investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election, Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani floated the possibility of presidential pardons for Manafort and others charged in the probe.

Giuliani said he is opposed to having an interview but "the president wants to do it so we have to sort through it". "It's news to me, I just read it here in The Washington Post".
