Trump Speaks On Manafort Conviction

President Trump recently said he feels “very sad” about Paul Manafort’s conviction and it “has nothing to do with Russian collusion.”

Trump stated, “Paul Manafort’s a good man. … I feel very sad about that. It doesn’t involve me, but I still feel, you know, it’s a very sad thing that happened. This has nothing to do with Russian collusion. This started as Russian collusion. This has absolutely nothing to do –. This is a witch hunt and it’s a disgrace. This has nothing to do [with] what they started out, looking for Russians involved in our campaign. There were none.”
