Rudy Giuliani Tells Cohen To Testify To Mueller

  • In memo to special counsel Trump lawyers cast former FBI Director Comey as dishonest and 'Machiavellian'

"He wasn't keeping his side of the bargain", John Dowd told CNN on Saturday.

Did @rudygiuliani really say on Sunday shows that @michaelcohen212 should cooperate with prosecutors and tell the truth? "It was total, wide open cooperation".

It's not clear to what extent, if any, the attacks on Comey have resonated with Mueller's team, which continues to seek an interview with the president on whether he had a corrupt intent when he fired the Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

In less than three months on the job, Giuliani has shifted the timeframe and the parameters for any Trump-Mueller interview no fewer than seven times.

The Inquisitr recently reported that Giuliani is not anxious about Cohen cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Dowd's resignation from the legal team last March came after disagreements with Trump intensified about whether he should sit for an interview and the President stepped up his attacks on the special counsel.

Among other conditions, President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told The New York Times there needed to be concrete evidence the president committed a crime before he'd agree to speak with Mueller and his team. "If they want information on Trump, he's willing to give it".

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.

Comey says he took it as direction.

All in all, Dowd criticized the process.

The former assistant USA attorney added: "And once the rule of law starts to fall apart, then we're on the fast track to tyranny, regardless of political party. This is the President".

Davis, who served as special counsel to President Bill Clinton, joined the legal team of Cohen last week alongside former federal prosecutor Guy Petrillo. "He should have just moved on".

If there is no voluntary interview, and Mueller decides to seek a subpoena against Trump, Dowd predicted it might be blocked. Now, he's responding to a recent Rudy Guiliani interview, to call out Guiliani's suggestion that Cohen should tell the truth. "He already has everything". But Giuliani pivoted to criticizing the special counsel team itself, noting the recently released report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

"The government's reasons for initiating a prosecution have nothing to do with whether the evidence at trial proves the elements of the charged offenses, which is the sole question that the jury must answer", prosecutors Andrew Weissmann and Greg Andres argued in the seven-page filing. "In all the leaking that's gone on, there's been no leak of any fact that's said the president conspired with anybody in Russian Federation".
