Giuliani: No Cohen Concerns 'As Long As He Tells The Truth'

Cliff Owen  Associated Press		James Comey

In an earlier interview with ABC News, Cohen said his primary loyalty was to his family and the United States, a notable change from earlier statements that indicated he'd protect Trump above all others.

On NBC's "Meet the Press", Giuliani said Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen should feel free to cooperate with the special counsel and federal prosecutors investigating him.

As Trump continues to assert his willingness to speak with Mueller, his words are increasingly being undermined by his own legal team and one of its newer additions, Rudolph W. Giuliani.

"I'm glad to see that Emmet is using a high standard because after all, we've given them everything they ask", Giuliani said. "We have no reason to believe he did anything wrong", Giuliani said on ABC's "This Week". The reality is, as a prosecutor, I was told that many times, 'can you give the man a break, ' either by his lawyers, by his relatives, by his friends. Tell me we have something to hide.

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". Seriously? Is that Trump and Giuliani definition of "truth"?

Giuliani emphasized Cohen "telling the truth" on three separate occasions during the interview. Cohen switched up his legal team recently after his previous counsel completed an extensive review of documents seized from Cohen's home, office and Manhattan hotel room during an April raid.

Scarborough makes no mention of the strong evidence showing that the FBI spied for Lyndon Baines Johnson's presidential campaign, as the Wall Street Journal reported, "On the president's orders, the bureau wiretapped Barry Goldwater's plane and headquarters." What we're asking them for is: Is this the witch hunt that a lot of people think it is?

Giuliani called the investigation into Russian interference and the Trump campaign's possible collusion "kind of really shaky".

Bolduan asked if there's any signal that Cohen is now cooperating with prosecutors.

The former NY mayor said on NBC that it's "great" if Cohen wants to cooperate with investigators because "we've been through all the records" and "he has no evidence of, nor was he involved in, anything untoward with the president".

Cohen also defended the Mueller investigation as a whole, saying, "I respect our nation's intelligence agencies'".
