Giuliani advises Trump not to pardon Cohen

11 July 2018

Last week Cohen removed every reference to President Trump from his Twitter page, an indication that he is going to cooperate with the special counsel.

"I have advised the president, which he understands: no discussion of pardons, " Giuliani said Sunday on ABC's "This Week". Cohen recently told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that he is putting "family and country first" and protecting the president is not his priority.

"I think that you could have very, very different recollections on that because it was right in the heat of the campaign", he said.

"There is no evidence of wrongdoing with President Trump".

Davis had some strong words in response to this, in a message he posted on Twitter Monday morning. "Now, a source familiar with Cohen's thinking tells me that he feels that he's getting a strong signal from the president and from Rudy Giuliani that if his version of the truth doesn't coincide with their version of the truth, then they will continue their attacks on him".

"We're not asking to show us that he committed a crime", Giuliani said on "Meet the Press".

There has been significant speculation in recent weeks over whether Cohen would cut a deal with prosecutors, and what that could mean for the president. Seriously? Is that Trump and Giuliani definition of "truth"?

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's home, office and hotel room in NY in April as part of a probe into his business dealings.

"My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will", Cohen said. "The president did nothing wrong with him".

"I don't know what he has to flip over", Giuliani said.

"Mr. Comey continued his Machiavellian behavior after President Trump was elected", Kasowitz wrote.

Prosecutors also want to bar Manafort from introducing evidence that he was previously investigated but not charged before Mueller was appointed in May 2017. Giuliani called Mueller's inquiry "a witch hunt and an attempt to trap him in perjury".

"I don't think he has a choice". In it, Kasowitz argues that Comey can not be trusted as a witness because he repeatedly embellished his testimony before Congress, put his "own personal interests and emotions" above Federal Bureau of Investigation protocol and left a cloud of undue suspicion above the president's head.

Cohen, in the interview, also specifically raised the point that he believes the intelligence communities over Trump.
