Trump lawyer blasts Russian Federation probe as 'most corrupt' ever

Rudy Giuliani says on ABC's "This Week" Sunday that they have no worries about Michael Cohen "as long as he tells the truth".

"These sources say that what Cohen has made a decision to do is effectively hit the reset button here and that he is continuing his commitment to tell the truth", she continued.

"Michael's not going to lie, he's going to tell the truth".

"We certainly know that Robert Mueller is not corrupt." said Scarborough "We certainly know he is a marine, a war hero, a guy who [unlike] Donald Trump didn't skip out on serving this country, claiming deferments and bone spurs".

Bolduan asked if there's any signal that Cohen is now cooperating with prosecutors.

Like Trump, the lawyer also complains about Comey's refusal to state publicly to Congress that the president was not under investigation even though he said so privately.

"I think this is a shot across the bow that says, 'wait a minute here, you're daring me to tell the truth, well, that's great, I'm gonna continue to do that.,'" she concluded. I do know there's no evidence of wrongdoing with President Trump.

Cohen, who is Trump's former attorney and who once famously said that he was prepared to "take a bullet" and "do anything" to protect him, is under intensifying scrutiny from federal prosecutors in Manhattan.

Trump has long contended that the investigation is an excuse by Democrats to explain his upset win over Democrat Hillary Clinton, a former US secretary of state.

Cohen repeated previous denials that he had any involvement with Russian attempts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, but he refused to criticize the investigation led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Cohen's home, office and a hotel room in NY were raided by the FBI in April as part of an investigation into his business dealings.

Sources close to Cohen have slowly begun telling the media that the president's former attorney is ready to flip on his ex-boss.

Mueller could subpoena Trump to testify before a grand jury if he does not agree to an interview, but Giuliani said, "If he does, we could have it quashed".

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani returned Sunday from a brief absence from the spotlight to push his client's case in three separate TV appearances.

Cohen has scrubbed a reference of his long-time representation of Trump from professional credentials, saying recently, "My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will", not the president. It was the first in a series of conversations that Comey documented in writing, something Trump lawyers say he did with the ultimate goal of harming the president.
