How Trump's former lawyer evolved on dealing with Mueller

The investigation, headed by former FBI director Robert Mueller, has widely been expected to wind up in the next few months - possibly after a Mueller interview with Trump - but Giuliani said such a meeting now seemed increasingly unlikely. And every indication we have is the president is not involved in that.

In an interview last week with Stephanopoulos, Cohen acknowledged that he soon could face criminal charges in an ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of his finances and business dealings.

Rudy Giuliani told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday that he has "zero" concerns about Cohen, who once described himself as "the guy who would take a bullet" for Trump.

"It's our, it's our firm belief, and we think nothing contradicts this, that the president did nothing wrong", Giuliani said.

Lawyers for President Donald Trump unleashed a blistering attack on former FBI Director James Comey in a confidential memo past year to the special counsel, casting him as "Machiavellian", dishonest and "unbounded by law and regulation" as they sought to undermine the credibility of a law enforcement leader they see as a critical witness against the president.

Davis, who worked as President Clinton's special counsel in the late 1990s, was hired by Cohen last week.

Instead, it casts in a negative light actions that Comey has said he carefully reasoned and that he has vigorously defended in his book and interviews. The president did nothing wrong with him, so we've gone through every document we can. "So, we're very comfortable", Giuliani said on CNN's State of the Union.

But the examples of corruption resulting from the Mueller investigation Scarborough cited are not directly related to actions that occurred during the campaign; they are actions taken before or after the campaign.

A tweet from Davis on Monday implies that Guiliani wasn't talking about the actual truth, but a version of the story that would benefit the president, and that neither Trump nor Guiliani have what could be called a close relationship with "truth" by any definition. They're not going to find any of that.

"But in a public proceeding where what they're really interested in is shifting public opinion, I think that's where it's at". "The fact is Michael has been a victim here like a lot of other people". Cohen gave an interview to ABC last week in which he signaled he might be willing to cooperate. "Or is there a factual basis for this?"
