Did Trump ever want to sit down with Mueller?

Trump lawyers call Comey 'Machiavellian' in note to Mueller

Michael Cohen's new lawyer blasted Rudy Giuliani for suggesting President Trump's former longtime fixer tell the truth to the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation.

"Michael Cohen should cooperate with the government".

In an earlier interview with ABC News's George Stephanopolous, Cohen said his primary loyalty was to his family and to the United States, a notable change from earlier statements that indicated he would protect Trump above all others. Comey has said he told Trump about the dossier allegations because they were widely known in Washington, including by the media, and that he kept his memos because he was concerned that Trump might lie about their conversations. "We have no reason to believe he did anything wrong", Giuliani said on ABC's "This Week".

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". "I put family and country first".

Giuliani also discussed whether Mr. Trump's Supreme Court nominee should be involved with the Mueller investigation and Mr. Trump's upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. By demanding an unreasonable amount of information from Mueller and his team, Giuliani is trying to make the public believe that it is Mueller's fault that Trump is not voluntarily agreeing to meet with him. TrumpWorld has already fired a few shots across Cohen's bow, first with that weird Enquirer hit piece on him in April and then later with Trump speaking in the past tense in telling reporters that he "always liked" Cohen, which allegedly bothered Cohen.

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

"If he wants to cooperate, I think it's great", Giuliani said.

Davis, who served as special counsel to President Bill Clinton, joined the legal team of Cohen last week alongside former federal prosecutor Guy Petrillo. "We can't find an incriminating anything, and we need a basis for this investigation". "They have to give us factual basis leading to some suspicion of a crime". And - here's a fun thought for POTUS - Michael Cohen might have access to the detonator.

When questioned about a possible pardon for Cohen should he be charged and convicted, Giuliani said he has advised Trump that there should be "no discussion of pardons", adding that is "something you can decide down the road".

These sources would not comment on whether Cohen's attorney, Guy Petrillo, has been meeting with prosecutors in NY and referred inquiries about any potential case to Petrillo. The New York Times noted Friday that Trump has tweeted about a "witch hunt" 59 times since March alone, compared to 20 times in all of 2017.
