"It's a joke", Giuliani said, pointing to his own months as an adviser to Trump's campaign.
Manafort and WikiLeaks both said there were no such meetings.
He then launched into an attack on Mueller's investigation and team of prosecutors, who he claimed are unduly coercing Manafort. You're not God. Mueller is not reining them in.
