Trump knew about Trump Tower meeting with Russians, Cohen source to CNN

Giuliani says Trump could soon decide on Mueller interview

The hiring of a Washington insider to be a public attack dog. Talk of more to come. "So we don't just acknowledge though the basis for that", Giuliani said.

Graham noted Sunday that Cohen already has testified before Congress about conversations he had with Trump. But his behavior doesn't quite line up with a clear strategy, legal experts say. "They definitely don't want Trump!"

Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney says the US president knew in advance of a June 2016 meeting in which Russians were expected to share dirt on then-election rival Hillary Clinton, US media reported on Wednesday.

"I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr.", the President countered in a tweet early on Friday.

Giuliani also said in the interview that Trump could soon decide whether to speak with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who for over a year has been investigating any possible links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

CNN quoted sources as saying Cohen lacks evidence such as an audio recording to corroborate his account. "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".

Giuliani's key aim is to insist that Trump was not in that meeting.

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

Donald Trump and his son Donald Trump, Jr.at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Wednesday, July 20, 2016. "He's looking at going to jail, so people like him are subject to making things up".

Others have been making this same argument for nearly as long as Donald Trump has been president, and for good reason. But a person close to Cohen downplayed the possibility.

According to CNN, President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani wants the American people to hear the various tapes that were confiscated during the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of Michael Cohen's home and office back in April, adding that they will exonerate the President of all perceived and potential wrongdoing. It's a "high stakes gambit" that could backfire if he's angling to become a cooperator, Mintz said. "We have complained to them that he's violated the attorney-client privilege, publicly and privately".

House conservatives - including Ryan - still say the Justice Department isn't producing the documents they want about the early stages of the Russian Federation investigation, which means Rosenstein isn't out of the woods completely. "The Trump Organization is a big business, and nobody in that place made a decision without his knowledge". If he mentioned the crucial detail to House investigators it was not included in their massive report on the matter. Giuliani says that he is now of the opinion that Michael Cohen has lied his whole life. As recently as May, Giuliani called Cohen "an honest, honorable lawyer".

Michael Cohen (above) secretly recorded Trump in a 2016 conversation about a payment to quash affair allegations. "Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client - totally unheard of & perhaps illegal". "If they rely on him ... it would destroy whatever case they have".
