Michael Cohen’s New Attorney Has Already Started Bashing Trump

"I'm not going to weigh in to this issue and I refer you to outside counsel", she said. We've been through all his records.

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. "Because it's going to lead to nothing".

According to a filing submitted to the court Tuesday night by special master Barbara Jones, federal prosecutors investigating Michael Cohen, a longtime personal lawyer and confidante for President Donald Trump, are set to receive 1 million files from three of his cellphones that were seized last month.

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

On ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, Giuliani told Stephanopoulos he and Trump were fine with Cohen's interview, and that he has "zero" concerns about what Cohen could tell authorities "as long as he tells the truth".

He was soon up to 16th and by lap nine he was eighth, but some distance from Vettel, who led Bottas by six seconds on lap 12. Hamilton stayed close in third, hoping for a chance.

Giuliani says Cohen "should cooperate with the government". "We have - we have no reason to believe he did anything wrong".

Whether Mr. Trump will testify is still an open question, Giuliani told Reid.

Giuliani said Sunday, "I don't know what he has to flip". When pressed, Guiliani maintained there was no wrongdoing by the president, and that the truth could therefore not harm him. He said that the White House required not evidence of a criminal deed but at least some factual basis supporting suspicion of a crime.

Since returning to Trumps' orbit as his new lead attorney, Giuliani has become a fixture on television, occasionally making news and routinely promising anyone who will listen that he will bring the Russian Federation collusion investigation to a close. They can investigate forever. What we're asking them for is: Is this the witch hunt that a lot of people think it is? My quote is not evidence of a crime, it's a factual basis for the investigation.

Giuliani called the investigation into Russian interference and the Trump campaign's possible collusion "kind of really shaky". There is no indication when the Mueller probe might end and his team has not publicly responded to Trump's frequent attacks on it, claiming it is biased against him.
