Trump's Legal Team Changes Demands For Mueller Interview

Then-FBI Director James Comey testifies on Capitol Hill in January 2017. A letter written by lawyers for President Trump a year ago attacks Comey as

"Rudy Giuliani made the president look foolish", runs atop a "Morning Joe" segment about Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal attorney, who has given recent press interviews critical of the Robert Mueller special counsel investigation, calling it the most corrupt investigation the former New York Mayor has ever seen.

In particular, the same sources say Giuliani is wading into unsafe territory when he asks Cohen to "tell the truth" about the Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and Russian meddling in the election.

Stephanopoulos asked Giuliani. "Same as mine, which is fine".

"Michael Cohen should cooperate with the government". "As long as he tells the truth, we're - we're - we're home free", 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. Asked Sunday on ABC's "This Week" whether he has now determined there would be no interview, he said, "We have not (but) we're close to determining that".

While Giuliani said he had advised Trump against pardoning Cohen, he also argued that to rule out a pardon "wouldn't be fair to - to the president, wouldn't be fair to Cohen, wouldn't be fair to future presidents".

Giuliani emphasized Cohen "telling the truth" on three separate occasions during the interview.

In recent weeks, Cohen has made a number of moves indicating that he's willing to turn against the president if federal investigators from the Southern District of NY or the FBI want him to. "The president did nothing wrong with him". They can investigate forever. "What I do know is, there's no evidence of wrongdoing with President Trump". "The fact is Michael has been a victim here like a lot of other people". Giuliani called Mueller's inquiry "a witch hunt and an attempt to trap him in perjury".

"One source said to me this is his version of July 4th, which is Independence Day", she continued. In it, Kasowitz argues that Comey can not be trusted as a witness because he repeatedly embellished his testimony before Congress, put his "own personal interests and emotions" above Federal Bureau of Investigation protocol and left a cloud of undue suspicion above the president's head.

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 United States presidential election was "unsustainable".
