Rudy Giuliani Says Former Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen's Credibility Is 'Destroyed'

Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., along with Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and senior campaign aide Paul Manafort took part in the June 9, 2016, meeting with Nataliya Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer and acknowledged Kremlin informant.

"Sources with knowledge", told CNN on Thursday that Cohen claimed that President Trump knew about the Donald Trump Jr. meeting and said Cohen was present when Trump was told about it.

President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said Monday that he does not know whether Trump would ever pardon Michael Cohen, the President's embattled ex-lawyer now under criminal investigation. Cohen has no hard evidence, the sources say, but is willing to testify to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

"Businessmen listen to nearly everyone who might be helpful, and by the way, they make pragmatic decisions about how to make bad stories go away", Issa added.

"It seems to me his default position is to lie", Mr Giuliani said of Mr Cohen, who in May he said was an "honest, honourable lawyer".

First, CNN obtained a recording of a conversation between Cohen and Trump from 2016 discussing how they would buy the rights to a Playboy model's story about an alleged affair.

Cohen is under federal investigation in NY. Trump has denied having had an encounter with Daniels. On one level, it's hardly a smoking gun since the payment that Trump and Cohen are discussing never actually happened.

"It's time for Donald Trump Jr.to come back before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer them, but this time in public, under oath", Leahy said, Newsweek reports.

The president wrote of the special counsel: "Is Robert Mueller ever going to release his conflicts of interest with respect to President Trump, including the fact that we had a very nasty & contentious business relationship, I turned him down to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation (one day before appointment as S.C.) & Comey is his close friend".

"Arrived back in Washington last night from a very emotional reopening of a major U.S. Steel plant in Granite City, Illinois, only to be greeted with the ridiculous news that the highly conflicted Robert Mueller and his gang of 13 Angry Democrats obviously can not find Collusion...", Trump tweeted.

The leak fanned speculation about how much damage Cohen can inflict on the president and whether he is now mulling a cooperation deal with federal prosecutors.

"We have determined the fact that he tampered with the tape, in the sense that he abruptly, mid-conversation, turned it off", Giuliani said Saturday on Fox News.

"I don't see how he has any credibility", Giuliani said. He cited the president's tweets as being helpful to Mr. Trump's legal case, saying he has been able to lay out his defense for not granting an interview to Mueller's team. "You better buckle up buttercup because Mr. Trump's stupidity and disloyalty is about to catch up to him (and you)".
