Rudy Giuliani says Michael Cohen should cooperate with federal investigators

He also professed to be untroubled by either the prospect of Trump being served with a subpoena to appear before the inquiry, or by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, flipping and handing over all his information to Mueller.

Giuliani stressed that "I have no concerns that Michael Cohen is going to do anything but tell the truth", adding that "As long as he tells the truth, we're home free". The President did nothing wrong with Michael Cohen.

Giuliani told The New York Times on Friday that Mr. Trump's legal team is demanding Mueller prove he has evidence Mr. Trump committed a crime before the president agrees to an interview.

Although Trump still "wants to testify", as Giuliani insisted, the likelihood of him speaking with Mueller looks increasingly slim.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's home, office and hotel room in NY in April as part of a probe into his business dealings.

Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani has warned Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election, that the White House is close to refusing to grant an interview with the president.

"We're pretty much decided we are waiting for a decision of the counsel", Giuliani said, adding that there needs to be "some basis for investigation". "We are close to determining that, but the reason for the extensions are the extraordinary things that happened that we didn't expect".

Giuliani echoed this sentiment on ABC's "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. "What I do know is, there's no evidence of wrongdoing with President Trump".

The fourth did not appeal, but his lawyer said they would soon file one, according to the Press Trust of India news agency. A review of these courts by The Washington Post in 2016 found that they varied in effectiveness, however.

Giuliani told ABC, "We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction". "I have debriefed all their witnesses", he said. "Sorry, I don't see Michael doing that despite the disgusting Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!"

"It cast a taint over the entire investigation", Mr. Giuliani said on ABC.

Following reports last week that Giuliani said he wants the special counsel Robert Mueller to show a "factual basis" before Trump agrees to testify under oath, Giuliani upheld his suspicion of the investigation's roots.

He was asked how he might respond if the president or his legal team came after him and tried to discredit the work he did for Trump over the last decade.

The report showed the lead investigator on the probe, Peter Strzok, who also led the Russian Federation probe, was strongly biased against Trump and even vowed to "stop" Trump from being elected, according to text messages he sent.

Cohen recently raised speculation that he might turn on Trump after he said his first loyalty belongs to his family and country, not the president, but Giuliani downplayed those concerns.

"Simply accepting the denial of Mr. Putin is unsustainable", Cohen said.
