Rudy Giuliani blasts Mueller's team and bets on anti-Trump texts

Rudy Giuliani blasts Mueller's team and bets on anti-Trump texts

'When one senior FBI official, Strzok, who was helping to lead the Russian Federation investigation at the time, conveys in a text message to another senior FBI official, Page, that "we'll stop" candidate Trump from being elected - after other extensive text messages between the two disparaging candidate Trump - it is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate's electoral prospects, ' Horowitz concluded.

" Zero. None", Giuliani said.

"I have no concerns that Michael Cohen is going to do anything but tell the truth", he said.

Giuliani also said he had "zero" concern that Michael Cohen, a former Trump attorney who represented him for a decade while he was a NY real estate mogul and into the first year of his presidency, might provide prosecutors damaging information about Trump.

When questioned about a possible pardon for Cohen should he be charged and convicted, Giuliani said he has advised Trump that there should be "no discussion of pardons", adding that is "something you can decide down the road". "And, if he does that, we're home-free".

In an interview last week with Stephanopoulos, Cohen acknowledged that he soon could face criminal charges in an ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of his finances and business dealings. Cohen gave an interview to ABC last week in which he signaled he may be willing to cooperate.

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. "I put family and country first".

It wrote that Trump will only agree to it if Mueller "has evidence that Mr. Trump committed a crime and that his testimony is essential to completing the investigation". The President did nothing wrong with Michael Cohen.

Giuliani said he could envision Trump answering "narrow questions" about alleged collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation. "If he believes it's in his best interests to cooperate, God bless him".

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani implied to ABC's George Stephanopoulos Sunday that President Donald Trump pressured former FBI Director James Comey to "give the man a break" and drop the investigation into ex-White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"We want Michael to handle this in a way that's most helpful to him". What we're asking them for is: Is this the witch hunt that a lot of people think it is? "We're close to determining that". "Or is there a factual basis for this?" Giuliani told NBC's Meet The Press.

Giuliani downplayed Cohen's statements and said he has no reason to believe Cohen has done anything wrong.

That source added that the interview was Cohen's "July 4th moment" and showed he was "no longer taking a bullet for you (Trump), no longer a flunky".
