Giuliani took to the airwaves Monday to keep up the president's attacks on Mueller, who is heading the Russian Federation probe, and faulted him for failing to publicly buttress Trump's position regarding a leaked recording of a tape between Trump and his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen discussing a payment involving a former Playboy playmate.
CNN cited anonymous sources saying Cohen was willing to share his information with Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.
The Michael Cohen tape, aired by CNN's Chris Cuomo, has very much put in play who said what to whom about a possible payoff to a former Playboy model and Rudy Giuliani's previous claim that the tape would vindicate the president.
"Businessmen listen to nearly everyone who might be helpful, and by the way, they make pragmatic decisions about how to make bad stories go away", Issa added.
Giuliani says that meeting included Don Jr., Jared Kushner, Manafort, Rick Gates and others.
A combination photo shows U.S. President Donald Trump's onetime personal attorney, Michael Cohen and U.S. President Donald Trump from outside federal court in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., April 16, 2018 and in the White House in Washington, U.S., July 18, 2018.
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.
Cohen has already admitted to paying former adult movie star Stormy Daniels (whose real name is Stephanie Clifford) $130,000, after she claimed to have had an affair with Trump.
The investigation into Cohen is looking into allegations of bank fraud, wire fraud and violations of campaign finance law - suspicions which may be largely tied to Cohen's taxi business, which has no relation to Trump.
There has been some speculation that Cohen may be angling for a pardon from Trump, who has begun wielding - and discussing - the presidential power frequently of late.
According to Giuliani, Cohen said he was in a room with Trump, his son, and others in which the meeting with the lawyer - who Trump Jr. believed had dirt on Hillary Clinton - was discussed.
Cohen's camp has denied being the source of the CNN report, the basic substance of which The Associated Press independently confirmed.
'There are then an untold number of other tapes.
"We've had it analyzed by several experts, not just for audio", Giuliani said. Giuliani says prosecutors have more than 100 recordings, and about a dozen have to do with the president.
Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, declined comment.
House conservatives - including Ryan - still say the Justice Department isn't producing the documents they want about the early stages of the Russian Federation investigation, which means Rosenstein isn't out of the woods completely. Giuliani, who called Cohen "an honest, honorable lawyer" as recently as May, has made a sport out of bashing Cohen in recent days. How stupid and unfair to our Country.... One of the several topics he discussed with host Alisyn Camerota was Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, and how long he thinks it will continue.
