Rudy Giuliani said Friday on Hannity that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's guilty plea meant nothing when it comes to the president and allegations of collusion.

Manafort will be able to avoid a second trial with his plea, which also involves cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Giuliani said the real collusion is "that whole group of people -- Strzok, Page, Ohr, Ohr's wife, Comey, Brennan and Clapper" tried to keep President Trump out of the White House.

"The guilty pleas are all irrelevant," Giuliani said.

He added that some of the aforementioned officials "transitioned into [attempting to] drive [Trump] out of the White House."

"This is not an investigation based on any facts," he said of the probe of the president.

Manafort faced seven counts of foreign lobbying violations and witness tampering in federal court in Washington.

He was found guilty last month in a trial in Virginia on eight counts of federal tax and banking crimes.

He faces up to 10 years on the charges in Washington and is awaiting sentencing in Virginia.
