Welp, Trump hasn't pardoned Manafort or Flynn. I think his closest advisors mistakenly thought he had any loyalty towards them.
Trump should be careful because history says, when he tries to pin things on his lawyers, they tend to fight back.
He will, Christmas 2020, win or lose. At that point he will not care about the consequences. I'd bet money on it. I think that's the only reason Guiliani isn't going to flip on Trump. He knows Trump will pardon him to keep him from talking but Guiliani isn't willing to spend any time in jail or go through any court case. He'll have to pardon Guiliani even before there is a trial.Welp, Trump hasn't pardoned Manafort or Flynn. I think his closest advisors mistakenly thought he had any loyalty towards them.

He can't deny it either way. He is on the phone telling the Ukrainian President he should contact Guiliani. That is putting Trump's personal interest in the hands of his personal lawyer.

There's a paper trail, and this should include Giuliani's invoices to Trump (almost certainly not privileged.) There's an answer and it is 99% likely to be Trump is now lying about Giuliani pursuing matters for himself or for other clients, which is itself a crime (obstruction of justice.)
Giuliani is being investigated by Congress, New York state and his wife's divorce attorney. He's not going to get by with blanket denials.
