Trump has nothing to fear from Cohen's cooperation with prosecutors, Giuliani says

Trump has nothing to fear from Cohen's cooperation with prosecutors, Giuliani says

Lawyers for President Donald Trump unleashed a blistering attack on former FBI Director James Comey in a confidential memo previous year to the special counsel, casting him as "Machiavellian", dishonest and "unbounded by law and regulation" as they sought to undermine the credibility of a law enforcement leader they see as a critical witness against the president.

Giuliani told ABC's "This Week" that Trump "did not originally know" about the $130,000 payment to Daniels, but it was "probably a little foggy as to exactly when the president found out" and reimbursed his former lawyer.

"He didn't direct him to do that", Giuliani said.

In television interviews Sunday, Giuliani expressed confidence that Cohen does not have any potentially incriminating information to share with prosecutors, saying he had "zero" worries.

"I don't know what he has to flip over", Giuliani said on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday.

Those close to Cohen claim that Giuliani is playing with fire by asking that the former Trump loyalist "tell the truth" about the meeting at Trump Tower where Russian meddling in the election was reportedly discussed.

I'm not going to reinvent the wheel nine years into my career. "For that reason and that reason alone I'm leaning towards Stipe". Conor McGregor was the UFC's featherweight champ in 2016 when he took the lightweight title from Eddie Alvarez.

"My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will", Cohen said. Seriously? Is that Trump and Giuliani definition of "truth"? "The president did nothing wrong with him".

Giuliani emphasized Cohen "telling the truth" on three separate occasions during the interview. The AP obtained a copy of the other document, in addition to a two-page memo from September in which Trump lawyers lament to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that Mueller was "inexplicably" not investigating Comey's "misconduct" they had earlier raised. They're not going to find any of that. "Or is there a factual basis for this?" He said an interview with Mueller could be an "attempt to trap him in perjury".

"He wants to testify", said the former New York City mayor. "When it's all said and done, the President is a witness and not a target".

In his interview last week, Cohen said Trump "simply accepting the denial of" Russian President Vladimir Putin that he didn't meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election was "unsustainable".

Cohen, in the interview, also specifically raised the point that he believes the intelligence communities over Trump.
