Trump lawyer holds off on Mueller interview OK

11 July 2018

Lanny Davis, who previously worked for President Bill Clinton's administration and has staunchly defended Hillary Clinton following her 2016 loss to Trump, went after Giuliani's call Sunday for Cohen to cooperate with federal prosecutors and to tell "the truth".

Giuliani also spoke confidently of Mueller's investigation of his predecessor, Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in connection to the president's relationship with and Cohen's payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Cohen recently told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that he is putting "family and country first" and protecting the president is not his priority.

He also professed to be untroubled by either the prospect of Trump being served with a subpoena to appear before the inquiry, or by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, flipping and handing over all his information to Mueller. "We have no reason to believe he did anything wrong". The White House initially pointed as justification for the firing to a Justice Department memo that faulted Comey for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, though Trump later said that "this Russian Federation thing" was on his mind when he made the move.

"We're not asking to show us that he committed a crime", Giuliani said on "Meet the Press".

"The fact that the polls are moving away from Mueller is telling", McCarthy said. Trump's team has been reluctant to give a straight answer to that question over the past few months.

"We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction", he said. Speculation has mounted that he might turn on Trump. And back in January, the president himself said he'd like to talk to Mueller under oath.

Stephanopoulos said he asked Cohen repeatedly if he was considering cooperating with prosecutors in their investigation. He clarified on ABC that he wants to confirm that there is a "factual basis for the investigation".

Giuliani revealed to CNN's State of the Union that the White House legal team has debriefed all the witnesses to the Mueller investigation, and reviewed 1.4m pages of documents handed over to the special counsel.

Giuliani claimed on ABC that Comey's testimony was "hardly worth anything" because Trump had a right to fire him.

In a Fox News interview past year, Mr. Cohen declared: "I will do anything to protect Mr. Trump".

Rudy Giuliani confirmed on Sunday that the White House contested a request from the special counsel to interview White House chief of staff John Kelly. "I respect our nation's intelligence agencies' ... unanimous conclusions".
