Former Trump Lawyer: Giuliani Is Wrecking The Case

  • Giuliani says Trump could soon decide on Mueller interview

It was then reported that Cohen says Trump knew of a meeting in NY in June 2016 between key aides and several Russians promising compromising information on Hillary Clinton.

After repeated denials from Donald Trump Sr. and Jr., CNN reported a bombshell that completely undermines the Trump administration's narrative about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian operatives who offered dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani unloaded on former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen on "Fox News Sunday", saying Cohen is a "scoundrel" and "total liar". "Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice", Trump said.

Rudy Giuliani has challenged Donald Trump's former lawyer to make public every recording of the president in his possession.

Issa, though, is no fan of Cohen, calling him "a turncoat lawyer" who should be "disbarred" for recording his client without his knowledge when the two were discussing payments to a former Playboy model.

A combination photo shows U.S. President Donald Trump's onetime personal attorney, Michael Cohen and U.S. President Donald Trump from outside federal court in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., April 16, 2018 and in the White House in Washington, U.S., July 18, 2018.

If Trump Sr. did indeed know about the meeting and approved of it in hopes of getting compromising information on opponent Hillary Clinton, "that could be collusion", Rivera said. "We are very confident of the accuracy and reliability of the information that has been provided by Mr. Trump, Jr., and on his behalf". The tape, which was released last week by Cohen's attorney, was one of a dozen audio recordings seized by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents during an April raid on Cohen's home, office and hotel room, CNN reported.

Legal experts told Business Insider last week that they found it freaky that Cohen felt the need to record a conversation with Trump, and some said they had never heard of an attorney secretly recording a client. "As his aides work to keep him insulated from the outside world, Mr. Trump is doubling down in his efforts to tell supporters to trust him over the words of critics and news reports". If CNN participated in the hacking conspiracy to get those documents, as in Giuliani's hypothetical, then they certainly could be prosecuted for it. Giuliani's proposing - theoretically, anyway - that simply using the materials after the hacking doesn't constitute collusion or any other crime, even if the user knows the material came from an illegal hack.

Cohen initially demonstrated an intense loyalty to Trump, once saying that he would "take a bullet" for the president. Donald Trump used a blocked number, other witnesses have told Congress. Trump Jr.

"They had thought that September, early September, would be a good guideline".

Davis did not immediately return a message seeking comment about Trump's claims.

Cohen frequently recorded his conversations, and prosecutors are believed to have dozens of them, including discussions with journalists, according to Davis. As recently as May, Giuliani called Cohen "an honest, honorable lawyer".

Trump has repeatedly insisted that he's willing to be interviewed by Mueller's team. "How stupid and unfair to our Country", he tweeted.
