Trump’s lawyers want ‘factual basis’ from Mueller before agreeing to interview
Rudy Giuliani says Michael Cohen should cooperate with federal investigators
11 July, 2018, 03:00
Michael Cohen's new attorney came out firing Monday against President Donald Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, challenging Giuliani over a recent interview and claiming the president and his lawyer together calling for the truth was an "oxymoron".
Michael Cohen's new lawyer blasted Rudy Giuliani for suggesting President Trump's former longtime fixer tell the truth to the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation.
Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor, was asked on ABC whether Trump's repeated attacks on Mueller and his team did not make it "seem as though he has something to hide". But Giuliani insisted that Mueller must show a factual basis for the probe before the president considers meeting with him - especially if "they're trying to get him into a perjury trap".
Giuliani says he has advised Trump that there should be "no discussion of pardons", adding that is "something you can decide down the road".
"The fact that the polls are moving away from Mueller is telling", McCarthy said.
These sources would not comment on whether Cohen's attorney, Guy Petrillo, has been meeting with prosecutors in NY and referred inquiries about any potential case to Petrillo. "What I do know is there is no evidence of wrongdoing with President Trump".
Politico's Josh Gerstein was the first to point out the discrepancy between Giuliani's comments and Trump's denial.
"We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction", he said.

Mr. Giuliani cited an inspector general report that found a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent on Mr. Mueller's team, Peter Strzok, had sent text messages critical of Mr. Trump.
Former federal prosecutor and Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy said Giuliani is implementing a smart strategy because the Mueller probe has always been about public opinion, and a new Washington Post-Schar School poll shows Americans are increasingly disapproving of the way Mueller has handled the Russian Federation probe.
In a Fox News interview previous year, Mr. Cohen declared: "I will do anything to protect Mr. Trump". "What I said was they have to give us a factual basis, meaning some suspicion of a crime".
Mr. Strzok didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
"I will not be a punching bag as part of anyone's defense strategy", Cohen said.
"Simply accepting the denial of Mr. Putin is unsustainable", Cohen said. "And, if he does that, we're home-free".
Cohen also defended the Mueller investigation as a whole, saying, "I respect our nation's intelligence agencies'".
