President Donald Trump's attorney said Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 US election should itself be the subject of a Justice Department examination.

"You are not going to get a pardon just because you are involved in this investigation", Giuliani said on CNN's "State of the Union," adding, "but you are certainly not excluded from it if, in fact, the president and his advisers, not me, come to the conclusion that you have been treated unfairly".

Conway, meanwhile, claimed Democratic lawmakers are holding up funding that would allow the expansion of family detention centers. During an appearance on Meet the Press earlier in the day, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway applied the same tactic.

Giuliani has argued that Trump cannot be indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russian Federation investigation, but could face impeachment if he has done something wrong.

Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sent to jail last week to await trial on more than 20 charges as part of the special counsel's probe.

Mr. Giuliani's call for investigations of the investigations was echoed Sunday by Stephen Bannon, a former top White House aide.

US President Donald Trump is once again calling the investigation a witch hunt. "I don't think Mueller and his people need to be investigated unless something comes out of that", Giuliani said. "In some respects, it dramatically supports his position. that the people who conducted the Hillary probe who were extreme partisan for Hillary and against Trump".

"Going back to Nixon, Ford. even Bush and Clinton. these pardons happened in these political investigations", Giuliani said.

"There's a lot of unfairness out there, but we don't know the scope of it", Giuliani said.

"The president has issued no pardons in this investigation". Picture: APLast week Mr Trump declared he thinks the Russian Federation probe is "very biased" and has reservations about being interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller. The report notes that Strzok told investigators the missive was meant to reassure Page generally and that it was not indicative of any planned behavior to influence the probe.

Taliban, Afghan forces hug, take selfies as ceasefire holds
Ghani also urged the Taliban to extend its three-day cease-fire, which was set to end on June 17. Western diplomats based in Kabul said they were issuing fresh travel warnings for the country.

Citing findings in last week's Justice Department inspector general's report related to the conduct of two senior FBI agents, the former mayor called for a review of the origins of the Russian Federation investigation. And I'm not really saying the special counsel. Trump reacted by playing down Manafort's role in his campaign. He did not specify how soon any pardons could be expected, but indicated that such action would come after the Mueller investigation. I just read it here in The Washington Post.
