Giuliani Says Michael Cohen 'Should Cooperate' With Prosecutors

Rudy Giuliani Donald Trump and Robert Mueller

The sources made it clear that, in his interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC two weeks ago, Cohen carefully chose the areas to distinguish himself from the President: First, one source said, "why did (Cohen) say I respect the Federal Bureau of Investigation?".

Rudy Giuliani has been staying out of the news lately, which seems like a good thing for his client, President Donald Trump.

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.

"Michael Cohen should - should cooperate with the government", he said. "We have to hold him back", he said. Asked Sunday on ABC's "This Week" whether he has now determined there would be no interview, he said, "We have not (but) we're close to determining that".

"My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will", Cohen said. "What I do know is there is no evidence of wrongdoing with President Trump". CNN's Don Lemon noted Monday night that sources say he sees himself as analogous to John Dean, President Richard Nixon's White House counsel who eventually pleaded guilty and became a key witness for prosecutors. "The president did nothing wrong with him".

Giuliani said in a separate interview on NBC's "Meet the Press" that they had "pretty much decided" where they were with regard to an interview.

Scarborough makes no mention of the strong evidence showing that the FBI spied for Lyndon Baines Johnson's presidential campaign, as the Wall Street Journal reported, "On the president's orders, the bureau wiretapped Barry Goldwater's plane and headquarters." "Of course he didn't commit a crime. The fact is Michael has been a victim here like a lot of other people". He also signaled a willingness to cooperate with federal prosecutors, even if what he tells them or special counsel Robert Mueller could imperil the president. Giuliani called Mueller's inquiry "a witch hunt and an attempt to trap him in perjury".

"But in a public proceeding where what they're really interested in is shifting public opinion, I think that's where it's at".

Cohen, in the interview, also specifically raised the point that he believes the intelligence communities over Trump.
