Trump Lawyers Nearing Decision He Won't Sit for Russia Probe Interview

Trump lawyers call Comey 'Machiavellian' in note to Mueller

Cohen, who has described himself as "the guy who would take a bullet" for Trump, is under investigation for making a $130,000 hush money payment shortly before the 2016 election to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who alleges that she had a one-night affair in 2006 with Trump shortly after Trump's wife Melania gave birth to their son. He adds, "We have no reason to believe he did anything wrong".

'Thirty-two witnesses, no invocation of privilege. He's going to tell the truth. We have nothing to hide'.

"We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction".

On Sunday, Giuliani repeatedly downplayed the possibility that Cohen, who was known for years as Trump's fixer, and who is on tape making threats on behalf of Trump, could provide information to prosecutors that would put the president in any legal jeopardy. "It makes complete sense in the world where Michael Cohen flips".

The plant spans 35 acres (141 thousand sq.m.) and aims to increase overall production of devices in India by 50%. Numerous software products designed for Samsung's smartphones in India are developed by these R&D teams.

"I have no concern that Michael Cohen is going to do anything but tell the truth", Giuliani said. 'After, hey, I would like to see texts from all the people working for Mueller'.

Mueller has already filed at least 23 indictments as part of the special counsel probe and five defendants have pleaded guilty, although none of the indictments directly involve wrongdoing by President Trump.

"I have advised the president, which he understands, no discussion of pardons".

On ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, Giuliani stressed that he wasn't anxious about testimony that Cohen might give.

Ryan Fox falls agonisingly short at Irish Open
Jorge Campillo (65) was in third place, a shot further back, and defending champion Jon Rahm was in a share of fourth after a 66. The highest of those was host Rory McIlroy, who shot a 71 to finish in the top 30 on -2.

Like Trump, the lawyer also complains about Comey's refusal to state publicly to Congress that the president was not under investigation even though he said so privately. What I said was they have to give us a factual basis, meaning some suspicion of a crime, ' he said.

This comes after the New York Times reported on Friday that Trump's team set new parameters for a voluntary meeting with Mueller. Giuliani told NBC's Meet The Press.

Rudy Giuliani seemed to confirm on ABC's "This Week" Sunday that President Donald Trump actually did ask former FBI Director James Comey to drop the probe into ex-White House national security adviser Michael Flynn despite Trump's previous denials that he said anything of the sort.

Trump has often said he is ready for an interview in Mueller's 14-month probe, but Giuliani told CNN, "We'd like to know if there's any factual basis for the investigation originally or the developed one, because we can't find one". "This is the most corrupt investigation I have ever seen that the Justice Department is allowing to go forward".
