President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Friday that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's sentence is fair and Michael Cohen should face prosecution for perjury.

On Hill.TV, Giuliani described Manafort's 47-month sentence as "justice," and said, "The fact is that if we take out their desire to try to crack him, to try to get him to cooperate, this is a tax evasion case. Big money, no question about that."

"The reality is, a first-time tax offender, most often you don't put them in jail. The number here is big enough so that it warrants a jail sentence," he continued. "The judge was right on target."

"What we have on the other side are completely overzealous prosecutors. They'd put this man in solitary confinement for six, seven months," Giuliani added. "They raided his home in the morning like this was John Gotti. He's not dangerous to anybody. He committed a white collar crime."

The former New York City mayor added if Cohen is not prosecuted for allegedly committing perjury, "it would be a complete outrage after what they did to [former National Security Adviser Michael] Flynn and a bunch of other people."
