Here’s what Trump said about Paul Manafort — hours before he was sent to jail

Two weeks after special counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors dropped new accusations of witness tampering on him, a federal judge revoked Manafort’s current bail, which had him on house arrest. 

Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s order Friday marks an end to months of attempts by Manafort to lighten his house arrest restrictions after he was charged and pleaded not guilty to foreign lobbying violations.

What Trump said about Manafort today: This morning, the President Trump said he feels bad for his former colleagues who are facing charges in Mueller's investigation, including Manafort.

"Manafort has nothing to do with our campaign," Trump said. "But I tell you, I feel a little badly about it. They went back 12 years to get things that he did 12 years ago. Paul Manafort worked for me for a very short period of time."

Here's that moment:

Trump could stop family separation policy with a phone call, senior Republican says

Sen. Lindsay Graham told CNN's Kate Bolduan that President Trump could stop the Department of Homeland Security from separating young, undocumented children from their parents when families are detained for illegally crossing the southern border.

"President Trump could stop this policy with a phone call," Graham said. "I'll go tell him: If you don't like families being separated, you can tell DHS, 'Stop doing it.'"

Earlier today, President Trump falsely blamed Democrats for the thousands of migrant children who have been separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border. His administration's zero-tolerance policy to refer anyone caught crossing the border illegally for federal prosecution has led to a notable uptick in the number of children taken from their parents since the change was announced in May.

However, Graham added that the separation policy discourages illegal immigration.

"I'm sure that people are going to be less likely to bring their kids to America if they get separated than if they lived together and get released into the country. I'm real sure about that," Graham said.

Sen. Lindsey Graham wants to challenge the inspector general on his report findings

GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham told CNN that he plans to challenge Inspector General Michael Horowitz at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Monday about his report findings on the handling of Hillary Clinton's emails.

Graham wants to ask Horowitz why he found no evidence of bias on the part of the FBI and Department of Justice in the Clinton email investigation.

"I think he'll be challenged about his conclusion," the South Carolina lawmaker said. "I think he's a good guy. And we'll see what happens. I'll tell you better after I hear him explain why he got to where he did."

Trump: "I feel badly" for Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn

President Trump wants people to know that he feels bad for his former colleagues who are facing charges in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"I feel badly about a lot of them because I think a lot of it is very unfair," the President said.

Trump mentioned former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who's in court today on new witness tampering and conspiracy charges.

"Manafort has nothing to do with our campaign," Trump said. "But I tell you, I feel a little badly about it. They went back 12 years to get things that he did 12 years ago. Paul Manafort worked for me for a very short period of time."

He also expressed distress for former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, who has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations with Russia's ambassador. 

"I feel badly for General Flynn. He's lost his house, he's lost his life. And some people say, 'he lied' and some people say, 'he didn't lie.' Really it turned out maybe he didn't lie," he told reporters.

Trump declined to say whether he would offer up a pardon for his former colleagues.

"I do want to see people treated fairly," he said. "That's what it's all about."

Trump says Michael Cohen isn't his personal lawyer anymore

President Trump told reporters that Michael Cohen is no longer his personal lawyer.

"I haven't spoken to Michael in a long time," Trump said. "But I always liked Michael. And he's a good person."

Cohen has not been charged with a crime, but the FBI raid of his home, hotel room and office in early April revealed that prosecutors had zeroed in on his personal financial dealings, including the payment he made to porn star Stormy Daniels on Trump's behalf before the election.

This week, Rudy Giuliani, one of President Trump's lawyers in the Russia investigation, said Cohen is not cutting a deal with federal prosecutors.

Trump falsely blames Democrats for separation of immigrant children from parents at the border

President Trump, speaking moments ago to reporters on the White House lawn, falsely blamed Democrats for the thousands of migrant children who have been separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border.

"The children, the children can be taken care of quickly, beautifully and immediately," Trump said.

"The Democrats forced that law upon our nation. I hate it. I hate to see separation of parents and children."

Trump said the "Democrats' law" forced that action at the border.

"The Democrats can come to us as they actually are in all fairness. We are talking to them, and they can change the whole border security," the President said.
