Giuliani: 'I want you to hear' Cohen tapes

Giuliani: 'I want you to hear' Cohen tapes

Cohen claimed Trump knew in advance and approved of the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower where his son Donald Trump Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign manager met with a Kremlin-linked lawyer, CNN reported on Thursday night.

Mr Trump's denial about his knowledge of the meeting comes as Russian President Vladimir Putin said he had invited Mr Trump to Moscow, and that both he and Mr Trump were ready for further summits, but that conditions needed to be right for a meeting to take place. "Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice!" he added.

The President also attacked Cohen, claiming he is "trying to make up stories" because of his legal trouble.

CNN cited anonymous sources saying Cohen was willing to share that information with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

"What it's going to change here is now the playing field is shaped just a little bit differently", Costello said Friday on CNN's "New Day."

"I thought he was taping all phone conversations.but to tape people when you're sitting in the office with them, that would be highly suspect", Nunberg said.

The Justice Department has been investigating Cohen for months, raiding his home, office and hotel room in April in search of documents related to a $130,000 payment the attorney facilitated before the 2016 election to Stormy Daniels, an adult-film actress who says she had sex with Trump in 2006. "Obviously, if I knew that I never would have said he was a reputable lawyer, I'd have said he was a scoundrel".

Appearing on the CBS show Face the Nation this Sunday, Giuliani said, "These are tapes I want you to read".

Trump, who stands accused of pliancy towards Russian President Vladimir Putin, insists no president has been as "tough" on Russia and denies any collusion between his campaign and Moscow.

"We have an outstanding offer to them", Giuliani said, referencing a letter of suggested question areas that Trump's lawyers have sent to Mueller.

Cohen's own lawyer, Davis, has compared the Cohen tape to the Watergate tapes that ultimately forced Republican president Richard Nixon to resign in 1974 as impeachment loomed.

Giuliani then claims that all of these conversations are corroborated by Trump's tweets about Cohen, and that Cohen made the payments not on behalf of the campaign, but out of his personal love for Donald and Melania Trump.

Jay Goldberg, another former Trump lawyer, argued Friday on CNN's "Erin Burnett Out Front" that Giuliani "immeasurably" damaged his case against Cohen with the sudden shift in tone.

Cohen has recently made a concerted effort to distance himself from Trump.
