Giuliani Says Michael Cohen 'Should Cooperate' With Prosecutors

Howard TerryJul 10, 2018

President Donald Trump's attorney says they are unconcerned about anything the president's longtime personal lawyer could tell authorities.

According to NPR, Guiliani said in an interview that Cohen should cooperate with prosecutors, and that "as long as he tells the truth" there would be no negative effect for Trump.

Federal agents searched Cohen's home and office in April, and speculation has since mounted that he might turn on Trump and provide evidence to federal officials that could implicate the president or his campaign. Comey has said he told Trump about the dossier allegations because they were widely known in Washington, including by the media, and that he kept his memos because he was concerned that Trump might lie about their conversations.

Rudy Giuliani, the former NY mayor and Trump's lead attorney, told ABC News and CNN that Trump's lawyers want evidence from Mueller's investigators that Trump engaged in wrongdoing before agreeing to let him be questioned. "The reality is there is no evidence of wrongdoing by the president, no evidence of collusion".

Giuliani used the interviews to question the integrity of the Mueller probe, which is tasked with investigating Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, and whether or not the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation.

"It cast a taint over the entire investigation", Mr. Giuliani said on ABC.

That charge by lawyer Rudy Giuliani came a day after Trump himself launched a fresh attack on the investigation, assailing it in successive Twitter messages as a "Rigged Witch Hunt" and a "Democrat Con Job!"

In a Fox News interview a year ago, Mr. Cohen declared: "I will do anything to protect Mr. Trump". Giuliani told ABC that investigators must first show a "factual basis for the investigation".

Davis, who served as special counsel to President Bill Clinton, joined the legal team of Cohen last week alongside former federal prosecutor Guy Petrillo. "They have to give us factual basis leading to some suspicion of a crime".

Since returning to Trumps' orbit as his new lead attorney, Giuliani has become a fixture on television, occasionally making news and routinely promising anyone who will listen that he will bring the Russian Federation collusion investigation to a close. The President did nothing wrong with Michael Cohen. It was the first in a series of conversations that Comey documented in writing, something Trump lawyers say he did with the ultimate goal of harming the president. Cohen's going to face the full firepower of the armed and operational Trump-crony battle station if he rolls over.

"The fact that the polls are moving away from Mueller is telling", McCarthy said.
