"If you're asking me who do I believe, the president or Michael Cohen, with what Michael Cohen may say - for instance when Michael Cohen says, now, that the president knew about the Russian Federation meeting in advance - I would believe Don Jr. and the president, in light of learning that Michael was taping conversations, the way Michael was conducting himself behind the scenes and in front of all of us", Nunberg said.
Giuliani says Trump's team wanted an interview basically limited to questions involving alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election.
Following a week of bombshell revelations, Rudy Giuliani, Trump's current legal counsel and the former New York City mayor, told the network that his team has told Cohen and his lawyers they "should respect the client and attorney privilege in different ways", Giuliani said. "If they rely on him ... it would destroy whatever case they have".
Giuliani says Trump could make a decision this week or next about whether to sit for an interview with Mueller.
Giuliani's comments echo a Wednesday tweet from Trump in which he asked: "Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (cut) while I was presumably saying positive things?" The raid on Cohen was part of an investigation into whether Cohen helped Trump pay off another affair with porn actress Stormy Daniels.
President Donald Trump is denying that he knew about a controversial summer 2016 meeting in Trump Tower between his son and Russians promising dirt on Hillary Clinton, a claimthat Trump's ex-lawyer, Michael Cohen, is reportedly making.
Trump has personally taken aim at Cohen for secretly recording their conversations, suggesting that doing so may have been illegal.
"He did not participate in any meeting about the Russian Federation transaction", Giuliani said.
The statement, made by Trump in morning tweets, escalates the public feud between the president and his longtime fixer.
CNN reportedthat Cohen claims he was present, along with several others, when Trump was informed of the Russians' offer by Trump Jr.in 2016.
The unreleased tapes, just like the one CNN obtained, do not show any wrongdoing by the president, Giuliani claimed, adding that the Trump legal team is OK if they are publicly released. Defendants looking for lenient deals through their cooperation usually have better luck if they come through the government's door earlier in an investigation.
Giuliani said the president is "disappointed" over Cohen's secret recordings, but said that they clear him from any suspicion of wrongdoing. As recently as May, Giuliani called Cohen "an honest, honorable lawyer". The meeting was also attended by Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, the President's son-in-law.
