Trump lawyer blasts Russian Federation probe as 'most corrupt' ever

Trump lawyers call Comey 'Machiavellian' in note to Mueller Rudy Giuliani says Michael Cohen should cooperate with federal investigators

Mueller is investigating so-far unproven claims that President Trump's campaign organization colluded with agents of the Kremlin in order to tilt the 2016 election in his favor.

"Michael Cohen should cooperate with the government", Giuliani said.

On CNN's "State of the Union", host Dana Bash asked if Giuliani was going back on his past comments that he didn't think Cohen would "flip" on Trump.

Mueller was appointed to take over the previous FBI probe into Trump-Russia "collusion" after former FBI Director James Comey claimed he was sacked by Trump because of how he handled the FBI's Russia probe.

A day after he tweeted "I will always protect my POTUS" in April, the FBI raided his home, office and hotel room as part of a probe by federal prosecutors in NY into his business dealings.

"My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will", Cohen told ABC's George Stephanopoulos in an off-camera interview that was reported on Monday's "Good Morning America".

Giuliani used the interviews to question the integrity of the Mueller probe, which is tasked with investigating Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, and whether or not the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation.

Giuliani insisted that Mueller's team needs to show Trump's lawyers that there was a legitimate "basis for this investigation", especially since "we now know it was started from biased" roots.

In his interview last week, Cohen said Trump "simply accepting the denial of" Russian President Vladimir Putin that he didn't meddle in the 2016 USA presidential election was "unsustainable".

"We want Michael to handle this in a way that's most helpful to him".

Trump has said he does not see Cohen turning against him.

Among other things, investigators are looking into a $130,000 payment he handled as part of a confidentiality agreement with porn star Stormy Daniels, who says she had an affair with Trump in 2006. "One day I will answer", he said.

Now 74, he joined the president's legal team in April and has taken a lead in the push to bring the investigation to a quick close.

Overall, this seems to be another attempt by Trump's team to discredit and stall Mueller's investigation.

Giuliani said Trump won't give an interview unless Mueller's probe into Russian tampering in the 2016 presidential election uncovers something that directly implicates him.

Petrillo did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Giuliani, Trump's current attorney, said on ABC's "This Week" that neither he nor the president have any worries about what Michael Cohen will say "as long as he tells the truth".

In reply, Giuliani asked the interviewer "how you can expect us to just walk up our client like a lamb to the slaughter". Mr. Cohen has denied any wrongdoing.
