Trump has nothing to fear from Cohen's cooperation with prosecutors, Giuliani says

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

"We don't know why Cohen is doing what he's doing right now other than the fact that I can tell you he is frustrated, he is infuriated by Rudy Giuliani and feels kind of shunted aside by the person that he was the ultimate loyalist for, who's, of course, the President of the United States", Borger said.

Just one day after Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer said he had no concerns about Michael Cohen testifying before the special counsel as long as Cohen tells the truth, Michael Cohen's new attack dog is firing back.

Giuliani told ABC's "This Week" that Trump "did not originally know" about the $130,000 payment to Daniels, but it was "probably a little foggy as to exactly when the president found out" and reimbursed his former lawyer.

Giuliani appeared on television Sunday and discussed the possibility of Cohen cooperating with federal prosecutors who are now investigating Cohen.

"It's our, it's our firm belief, and we think nothing contradicts this, that the president did nothing wrong", Giuliani said.

Giuliani encouraged Trump's former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen to cooperate with federal prosecutors.

"The reason he said is, 'I will not be a punching bag as part of somebody else's defense strategy, '" Davis added. Tell me we have something to hide.

In an interview that aired last week, Cohen said he did not share Trump's animosity toward Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.

In an interview last week with Stephanopoulos, Cohen acknowledged that he soon could face criminal charges in an ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of his finances and business dealings.

Giuliani reiterated in a text to CNN Monday morning, "the truth will set you free".

Giuliani emphasized Cohen "telling the truth" on three separate occasions during the interview. "The president did nothing wrong with him".

But the examples of corruption resulting from the Mueller investigation Scarborough cited are not directly related to actions that occurred during the campaign; they are actions taken before or after the campaign. Giuliani called Mueller's inquiry "a witch hunt and an attempt to trap him in perjury". "In all the leaking that's gone on, there's been no leak of any fact that's said the president conspired with anybody in Russian Federation". Cohen gave an interview to ABC last week in which he signaled he might be willing to cooperate.
