Trump Tweets Cohen Taping 'Perhaps Illegal' but Denies Own Wrongdoing

Giuliani's comments came days after CNN aired audio of a recording Cohen made of him and then-candidate Trump discussing a potential payment to Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model who has alleged she had an affair with Trump about a decade ago.

(FILES) In this file photo taken on September 26, 2016, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump (R) stands with his son Donald Trump Jr. after the first presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York.

During his televised appearances Sunday, Giuliani continued to rail against Trump's former personal attorney, telling CBS, "I don't see how you can believe Michael Cohen", and accusing Cohen of violating Trump's attorney-client privilege. He even retained Bill and Crooked Hillary's lawyer.

Cohen wasn't at the Trump Tower meeting and Cohen has not offered evidence to support the claim that Trump knew about the meeting.

Nunberg defended the president and said recent revelations of a taped conversation between Trump and Cohen was going "too far".

Half of Republicans say that hearing criticisms of President Trump on the Russian Federation issue makes them want to defend him more.

Trump and his attorneys have said that the recordings had been cut down to make it seem as if the president acted improperly.

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 USA attorney's office in Manhattan, would cooperate with prosecutors.

Wallace acknowledged that Cohen's claim suggests that Trump lied about what he knew about the meeting, but he seemed to write off the possibility that the White House will face problematic new questions about the president's connection to Russian Federation.

Cohen's tone has also shifted.

Cohen, whose business dealings are being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has longtime dealings in the taxi industry and owns several medallions for New York City yellow cabs that allow them to pick up passengers on the street.

Trump complained that he had returned from a trip Midwest Thursday "only to be greeted with the ridiculous news" that Mueller and his team "cannot find Collusion... so now they are looking at my Tweets (along with 53 million other people)".

"...The only Collusion with Russian Federation was with the Democrats, so now they are looking at my Tweets (along with 53 million other people) - the rigged Witch Hunt continues!"

The Fox host spoke with Sandra Smith on America's Newsroom Friday and shared his thoughts on Cohen's claim that the president approved Donald Trump Jr. How stupid and unfair to our Country....
