President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that the president's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, "should cooperate" with prosecutors, but if he does and tells the truth, then Trump has nothing to worry about.
Davis' hiring came just days after Cohen told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America" that his allegiance is to his family.
Mr. Giuliani also said he had "zero" concerns about Mr. Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen speaking with federal prosecutors as part of a separate probe into Mr. Cohen's business dealings. "I have advised the president, which he understands: no discussion of pardons, " Giuliani said Sunday on ABC's "This Week". That's something you can decide down the road, one way or the other, " Giuliani said. "Michael's not going to lie, he's going to tell the truth, and as long as he does that we have nothing to fear", Giuliani said.
Wehle pointed out that Mueller could subpoena Trump, forcing him to testify. Trump's team has been reluctant to give a straight answer to that question over the past few months.
Mr. Trump has denied any collusion and obstructing justice, deriding the probe as a "witch hunt".
The June 27, 2017, letter was written by Marc Kasowitz, then the president's lead lawyer, as Mueller and his team were in the early stages of their investigation into Trump associates and as they had begun examining whether the president, by firing Comey, had sought to stymie an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.More news: Samsung’s new unit gives a nice ring to ‘Make in India’
Davis was referring to Giuliani's appearance on ABC.
The president's lawyers specifically want Mueller to explain how the Justice Department gave him the authority to investigation possible obstruction of justice in what was initially a probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to the Times. He added: "This is the most corrupt investigation I have ever seen".
This comes after the New York Times reported on Friday that Trump's team set new parameters for a voluntary meeting with Mueller.
"I was probably there that day", he said a bit cryptically, adding, "I don't remember it". My quote is not evidence of a crime, it's a factual basis for the investigation. Seriously? Is that Trump and Giuliani definition of "truth"?
When asked if he's concerned about Cohen potentially cooperating, Giuliani claimed he was not.
All this comes as Cohen, a man who once said he would take a bullet for the president, has signaled an increasing willingness to cooperate with the special counsel.
