"I suspect they are forgiving a pardon in front of Manafort," Rep. Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, told Erin Burnett in CNN's "The Front of Erin Burnett," but the president should understand that even a pardon in front". "A witness like Manafort is dangerously close to obstruction of justice and would simply strengthen a claim or a charge of obstruction of justice against the President."
"Manafort is a proven criminal, a condemned criminal, a convicted liar and someone who is lying again now, according to the special lawyer," Nadler said, adding that Manafort "could implicate the President in collusion with the Russians to try. To manipulate the election. "
"Any attempt to force him to change his testimony or not to testify with a pardon would be very, it would be an obstruction of justice," Nadler said.
