Giuliani: No Reason for Trump to Consider Pardoning Cohen

Cliff Owen  Associated Press		James Comey

It's not clear to what extent, if any, the attacks on Comey have resonated with Mueller's team, which is broadly investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and continues to seek an interview with the president to assess whether he had a corrupt intent when he fired the Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

He said an interview with Mueller could be an "attempt to trap him in perjury".

And referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's lengthy Russian Federation probe, he added: 'There was no Collusion and the Witch Hunt, headed by 13 Angry Democrats and others who are totally conflicted, is Rigged!'

Giuliani said he could envision Trump answering "narrow questions" about alleged collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Lanny Davis, the attorney representing longtime Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen, sharply rebuked Rudy Giuliani on Monday for insisting that Cohen has no damaging information about President Donald Trump.

"The New York Times reported that President Trump won't agree to an interview with Robert Mueller unless Mueller first proves he has evidence that President Trump committed a crime". That timeline has now passed, and the president is set to leave on Tuesday on a seven-day trip.

"Why did (Cohen) say I respect the Federal Bureau of Investigation?" one source said. Giuliani said Mr. Trump's tweets are the result of the president finally having the time to turn his attention to this issue and because Mr. Trump wants the investigation to wrap up. In one such encounter, Comey said the president asked him at a private dinner for his loyalty and that Comey offered him "honest loyalty" instead.

Trump is "close" to making a determination, but he's been putting off deciding as more details emerge about "bias" on the part of investigators, Rudy Giuliani said on one of three scheduled television appearances on Sunday.

Kasowitz says Comey stonewalled the president's request to clear his name in order to "sustain an investigative cloud" over his head that would make it hard for Trump to fire him.

"I have a pretty good idea because I've seen all the documents they have, we've debriefed all their witnesses".

Mr. Strzok didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

Mr. Mueller declined to comment through a spokesman.

When questioned about a possible pardon for Cohen should he be charged and convicted, Giuliani said he has advised Trump that there should be "no discussion of pardons", adding that is "something you can decide down the road".

Next, Cohen spoke about the Trump Tower meeting, which both the President and Giuliani have claimed is a non-event, hinting that Cohen knows more about the meeting than he has previously said, the source said. Mr. Cohen has denied any wrongdoing.
