President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani says President Trump did nothing wrong in his dealings with Michael Cohen and isn't anxious about testimony he might give to special counsel Robert Mueller.
Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer who is under investigation by federal prosecutors in NY, said in his Twitter post Sunday, July 1, that he sat down for an interview with ABC News and his "silence is broken".
A day after he tweeted "I will always protect my POTUS" in April, the FBI raided his home, office and hotel room as part of a probe by federal prosecutors in NY into his business dealings.
When Stephanopoulos asked Giuliani if he has concerns about Cohen turning on Trump, the former New York City mayor answered, "None". "I have advised the president, which he understands: no discussion of pardons, " Giuliani said Sunday on ABC's "This Week". During a May 2017 news conference, Trump said when asked if he had urged Comey to ease up on the Flynn investigation, "no, no", and then said, "next question".
Wehle pointed out that Mueller could subpoena Trump, forcing him to testify.
The Inquisitr recently reported that Giuliani is not anxious about Cohen cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
The attorney and former mayor of NY, who is a long-standing friend of Trump's, walked back that suggestion a little on Sunday.
"I have a pretty good idea because I have seen all the documents that they have", Mr. Giuliani said on CNN, adding the investigation had produced 1.4 million documents.
Giuliani said as much Sunday.
This comes after the New York Times reported on Friday that Trump's team set new parameters for a voluntary meeting with Mueller. Giuliani told ABC that investigators must first show a "factual basis for the investigation".
"We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction".
"I have debriefed all their witnesses", he said.
Cohen's hiring of Davis, as well as his comments to ABC last week, increased speculation that Trump's former fixer was inching closer to cooperating with federal prosecutors rather than face serious charges stemming from his businesses and payments made to women, including Daniels, in order to secure their silence over alleged affairs.
Giuliani also highlighted the role former FBI counter-intelligence agent Peter Strzok played in both Mueller's probe and the DOJ's investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server to conduct officials business when she was Secretary of State. Kasowitz and Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow did not immediately return messages, and former Trump attorney John Dowd declined to comment. Mr. Cohen has denied any wrongdoing.
"If they can come to us and show us the basis and that it's legitimate and that they have uncovered something, we can go from there and assess their objectivity", Giuliani told the Times.
