Former Trump aide hits Cohen over recording private conversations

Former Trump aide hits Cohen over recording private conversations

"We don't violate these rules", Giuliani said.

Following the report on the Trump Tower meeting, Giuliani told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Thursday that Cohen has "been lying for years ... he's lied all his life", and said he doesn't "see how he has any credibility".

Newsweek could not reach any of the 11 Republican members of the Judiciary Committee about whether they would support having Donald Trump Jr.re-testify.

First, CNN obtained a recording of a conversation between Cohen and Trump from 2016 discussing how they would buy the rights to a Playboy model's story about an alleged affair.

Trump tweeted, "NO", he "did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr".

"The idea Michael Cohen was taping him, when I heard that, I felt like we were back in the 26th floor of Trump Tower", Nunberg said, referring to the Manhattan headquarters of Trump's campaign. The testimonies were conducted in private sessions with senators in September 2017. "But vis-a-vis his professional relationship with the president, this is, I mean it's highly unethical, if not, if not, you know, being - getting disbarred for what he did". "And even the meeting itself - while it certainly doesn't seem praise-worthy that American political candidates or their team would be meeting with a Russian lawyer to try to get dirt on Hillary Clinton that was being offered to them - that falls a long way from any hint of collusion between Trump and the Kremlin".

Legal experts told Business Insider last week that they found it freakish that Cohen felt the need to record a conversation with Trump, and some said they had never heard of an attorney secretly recording a client. Davis did not immediately return a message seeking comment about Trump's claims.

As recently as a few weeks ago, however, Giuliani said, "I do not expect that Michael Cohen is going to lie", during an interview with CNN's Dana Bash in response to a question about whether he thought Cohen will flip.

At least eight people were present at the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower.

Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr. and their lawyer have repeatedly denied that Trump knew about the May 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Nunberg said during his time with Trump's campaign, he had known Cohen as Trump's loyal "fixer" and was surprised the president's longtime ally would release such information. Despite the intelligence community's assessment that it was likely Russian President Vladimir Putin directly ordered the attacks, he has continued to downplay Russian interference in the election.
