Michael Cohen’s New Attorney Has Already Started Bashing Trump

Michael Cohen’s New Attorney Has Already Started Bashing Trump

Trump has insisted that he wants to do an interview with Mueller.

Mr. Trump would be like "like a lamb going to the slaughter" if he were to testify, Mr. Giuliani added.

Giuliani also said he did not believe Trump knew, beforehand or afterward, about a controversial meeting involving his son Donald Jr., some advisers and a Russian lawyer offering "dirt" on his election opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The Inquisitr recently reported that Giuliani is not anxious about Cohen cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. "Michael's not going to lie, he's going to tell the truth, and as long as he does that we have nothing to fear", Giuliani said.

Trump is "close" to deciding a determination, but he's been waiting as more details emerge about "bias" on the part of investigators, Rudy Giuliani said.

Last week, Cohen, who once said he would "take a bullet" for Trump, broke his silence and told ABC's George Stephanopoulos he is putting "family and country first".

As a former NY mayor, Giuliani has known Trump for years and was reportedly considered as a possible attorney general.

Giuliani went on to say that if Cohen has no sensitive information for prosecutors and that if he tells the truth, "We're home free". According to a filing submitted to the court Tuesday night by special master Barbara Jones, federal prosecutors investigating Michael Cohen, a longtime personal lawyer and confidante for President Donald Trump, are set to receive 1 million files from three of his cellphones that were seized last month.

In an interview last week with Stephanopoulos, Cohen acknowledged that he soon could face criminal charges in an ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of his finances and business dealings.

Former federal prosecutor and Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy said Giuliani is implementing a smart strategy because the Mueller probe has always been about public opinion, and a new Washington Post-Schar School poll shows Americans are increasingly disapproving of the way Mueller has handled the Russian Federation probe. They also want him to show that that the special counsel has exhausted every other investigative measure before requesting an interview with the president. Giuliani told ABC that investigators must first show a "factual basis for the investigation".

"I have a pretty good idea because I've seen all the documents they have, we've debriefed all their witnesses".

Still, Michael Cohen and Lanny Davis' public statements about the president and the truth all appear to promise a big reveal in the near future.

"Yeah, but I think this is new, saying no, after the Horowitz report", Giuliani said. "But the fact is there's no reason for a pardon right now. and, quite honestly, it would just confuse everything".
