Giuliani details new revelations about Michael Cohen's tapes

Cohen claimed Trump knew in advance and approved of the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower where his son Donald Trump Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign manager met with a Kremlin-linked lawyer, CNN reported on Thursday night.

"If you're asking me who do I believe, the president or Michael Cohen, with what Michael Cohen may say - for instance when Michael Cohen says, now, that the president knew about the Russian Federation meeting in advance - I would believe Don Jr. and the president, in light of learning that Michael was taping conversations, the way Michael was conducting himself behind the scenes and in front of all of us", Nunberg said.

Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani has angrily compared Michael Cohen, the president's former long-time lawyer, to famous traitors Benedict Arnold, Brutus and Iago.

"He can not be believed", Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for Trump, said on Thursday, referring to Cohen. "Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice", Trump said.

Mr. Giuliani denounced the Mueller investigation on CNN's "New Day," saying the special counsel created "a completely biased staff", but the attorney didn't rule out the possibility of Mr. Trump interviewing for the investigation.

Three days after Cohen's new lawyer, Lanny Davis, released a tape of Cohen and Trump talking about paying for Playboy model Karen McDougal's silence, the relationship splintered further Friday.

The criticism of a man who was once Trump's fierce defender reflects the tensions wrought by the federal investigations in NY and Washington.

President Donald Trump's ex-lawyer has largely stayed out of the spotlight in the months since federal agents raided his office and hotel room and seized scores of records about his work for Trump.

Giuliani also warned Cohen not to speak out about Trump, claiming Cohen is violating attorney-client privilege and is in "grave jeopardy" of being disbarred. He seems to allow that Cohen was in the meeting, just that he's lying about Trump's presence. "It makes sense ... it's enough before the November elections so you can't say he interfered with it one way or the other".

Nunberg defended the president and said recent revelations of a taped conversation between Trump and Cohen was going "too far". Giuliani continued, "One is with the President of the United States".

Nunberg said during his time with Trump's campaign, he had known Cohen as Trump's loyal "fixer" and was surprised the president's longtime ally would release such information.

'There's a lot there for them to investigate. This contradicts his earlier statement that called Cohen an "honest, honorable lawyer".

The conversation between Cohen and Trump, which Cohen recorded secretly, took place during the presidential campaign.

In addition to publicly coming out against Trump's actions, like the "zero tolerance" immigration policy, Cohen recently told ABC News George Stephanopoulos that his family "and this country" have his "first loyalty".
