Trump Lawyers Nearing Decision He Won't Sit for Russia Probe Interview

Rudy Giuliani Donald Trump and Robert Mueller

Rudy Giuliani says he has "no concerns" about the possibility that President Trump's longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen will cooperate with federal investigators.

Cohen, who hasn't been charged, wouldn't say if he would cooperate with prosecutors in the probe.

"As long as he tells the truth", said Mr. Giuliani, "We're home free". He adds, "We have no reason to believe he did anything wrong". Giuliani said Mr. Trump's tweets are the result of the president finally having the time to turn his attention to this issue and because Mr. Trump wants the investigation to wrap up.

Lawyers for President Donald Trump unleashed a blistering attack on former FBI Director James Comey in a confidential memo previous year to the special counsel, casting him as "Machiavellian", dishonest and "unbounded by law and regulation" as they sought to undermine the credibility of a law enforcement leader they see as a critical witness against the president.

The president, as well as Giuliani, have often used media interviews and or social media to deride the special counsel's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, usually referring to the probe as a "witch hunt" orchestrated by "13 Angry Democrats" hell-bent on rectifying the 2016 election. "To subpoena the president has never been done successfully in the history of this country, and there is very strong law saying the president can't be subpoenaed", he said. TrumpWorld has already fired a few shots across Cohen's bow, first with that weird Enquirer hit piece on him in April and then later with Trump speaking in the past tense in telling reporters that he "always liked" Cohen, which allegedly bothered Cohen.

'We would not recommend an interview for the President unless they can satisfy us that there is some basis for this investigation, ' Giuliani said.

Joe Scarborough laced into Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on Monday's "Morning Joe" in a rant that included a lengthy list of some of his clients' biggest scandals.

Giuliani told The New York Times on Friday that Mr. Trump's legal team is demanding Mueller prove he has evidence Mr. Trump committed a crime before the president agrees to an interview. My quote is not evidence of a crime, it's a factual basis for the investigation.

Still, Michael Cohen and Lanny Davis' public statements about the president and the truth all appear to promise a big reveal in the near future. As a result, he claimed, he could confidently say that Trump had nothing to answer.

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". Cohen's going to face the full firepower of the armed and operational Trump-crony battle station if he rolls over.
