Cohen's attorney fires back at Giuliani

Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer who is under investigation by federal prosecutors in NY, said in his Twitter post Sunday, July 1, that he sat down for an interview with ABC News and his "silence is broken".

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. Cohen switched up his legal team recently after his previous counsel completed an extensive review of documents seized from Cohen's home, office and Manhattan hotel room during an April raid.

"I should correct it, I didn't say they have to prove a crime", Giuliani clarified Sunday on CNN's State of the Union. "We have no reason to believe he did anything wrong".

Giuliani says he has advised Trump that there should be "no discussion of pardons", adding that is "something you can decide down the road". "He has no evidence of, nor was he involved in anything untoward, with the president".

Giuliani also addressed preconditions that Mueller would have to meet before being allowed to interview the president himself. "To subpoena the president has never been done successfully in the history of this country, and there is very strong law saying the president can't be subpoenaed", he said.

Giuliani echoed this sentiment on ABC's "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

The special counsel is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, whether Mr. Trump's campaign colluded with the Kremlin and whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice in his subsequent actions. That's something you can decide down the road, one way or the other, " Giuliani said. He clarified on ABC that he wants to confirm that there is a "factual basis for the investigation". "Or is there a factual basis for this?" Cohen told the New York Times he paid adult actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 out of his personal account to keep her from revealing details of her alleged affair with the president.
