Unaware of Tower meeting

Unaware of Tower meeting”

Giuliani was even more explicit in his praise of Cohen in May, saying that Cohen is "an honest, honorable lawyer" when ABC's George Stephanopoulos asked if he was concerned that Cohen, who is under criminal investigation by the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan, would cooperate with prosecutors.

Cohen frequently recorded his conversations, and prosecutors are believed to have dozens of them, including discussions with journalists, according to Davis.

When news of the meeting broke in July last year, the president repeatedly claimed he was never aware of it until a year later, but several critics cast doubt on these claims.

"These tapes completely demonstrate the president did nothing wrong", Giuliani said on "Fox News Sunday".

Donald Trump has denied explosive claims by his former lawyer that he knew about a meeting between his son and a Russian promising to share damaging information about his rival candidate Hillary Clinton before the 2016 USA election.

Both his son, Donald Trump Jr., and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, among others, attended the gathering, in which the Russian guests were expected to offer some dirt on Hillary Clinton.

She compared the White House transcript and video to those produced by others which included Mason's question. Trump threatened tariffs on $500 billion in Chinese imports in the same week that longtime ally Sen.

Giuliani, who called Cohen "an honest, honorable lawyer" as recently as May, has made a sport out of bashing Cohen in recent days. Cohen says Trump then chose to go ahead with the meeting.

On Friday, Trump denied knowing of the controversial 2016 Trump Tower meeting in advance, and suggested that Cohen was not being truthful. There have been earlier suggestions, from elsewhere, that Trump knew about the meeting.

The quiet feud between the pair was catapulted into the national spotlight this week with the airing of a taped conversation the two men had in 2016 about payments revolved around Karen McDougal, a former Playmate who alleges to have had an affair with Trump.

Giuliani told Fox he has hired technicians to determine if someone tampered with the tape, which cuts off abruptly.

That tape is also the only one Cohen has with Trump himself on it. Giuliani said there are about 11 or 12 other Cohen tapes in which others discuss the president and members of his family.

Giuliani's and Trump's opinions of Cohen have evolved in recent months, as the former fixer has been dragged into the public eye over his work for Trump.

She captioned the video; "got you on my mind..." Ellen DeGeneres tweeted that "it breaks my heart that she is going through this". The singer remains in a Los Angeles hospital, where her ex-boyfriend, actor Wilmer Valderrama visited her on Wednesday.

Whether or not President Trump knew about his son's meeting with Russians is one of the central unanswered questions in a wide-ranging investigation into possible Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.

Previously Trump has denied knowing in advance that the Trump Tower meeting was going to take place, and he has denied that there was any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Davis has said he has represented many different clients and that Cohen is telling the truth about Trump.

It's unclear if Cohen has any legally damning information to provide special counsel Robert Mueller about Trump. "We have complained to them that he's violated the attorney-client privilege, publicly and privately", Giuliani said.

He also confirmed that the joint defense agreement between Trump and Cohen has ended. Trump Jr. responded that if the information was good, "I love it", and the two began to arrange the rendezvous.

The employee said Weisselberg "knows where all the financial bodies are buried within the Trump Organization".

There were many broken windows, an overturned auto and drawings on walls that included the phrase "Liberte, Egalite, Mbappe". Mbappé replied to the tweet in English saying "The king will always remain the king", quickly gaining 15,000 retweets.

Asked about former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's upcoming trial, Giuliani told CNN "New Day" co-anchor Alisyn Camerota that Manafort "was not involved with intimate business relationships with Donald Trump".
