Asked on Fox whether anyone had suggested to Cohen that he might receive a presidential pardon if he refused to testify against Trump, Giuliani said, "The liar can say whatever he wants".

"Chris, you're going all over the place", Giuliani complained.

The President's legal team has resumed some discussion with the special counsel in the weeks since Trump responded to written questions, mostly regarding possible collusion and the period before the inauguration, the two sources said. He wasn't fiercely loyal to him, he taped him.

Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to nine federal charges, which included five for tax evasion and one count each of excessive campaign contribution, unlawful corporate contribution and false statements to a bank.

Cohen gave an interview with Stephanopoulos on Friday's Good Morning America, where he asserted that Trump knew about the hush money payments.

Cohen pleaded guilty on November 29 to lying to Congress about a Trump Organization skyscraper project in Moscow.

"The man is pathetic", Giuliani told ABC's "This Week".

"President Trump?" The faux gangster said.

Mulvaney isn't a strong personality who feels the need to challenge the president or prevent access to other top advisors. It controls all spending, all regulation, all testimony to the Congress, and really runs things for the president.

"It's not a crime, it's not a crime, George, paying $130,000 to Stormy whatever, and paying $100,000 to the other one, it's not a crime", he said.

On a referral from Mueller, prosecutors in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) secured search warrants to raid the office and residence of Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, in April.

The CBS Late Show host roasted Trump, on Monday night for a tweet in which he referred to his former attorney, Michael Cohen, as a "rat". Prosecutors with the Southern District of NY say Cohen implicated Trump in campaign financial violations, though they pointed out the defendant never signed a cooperation agreement.

James could get help from Cohen, who met voluntarily with the Attorney General's office concerning the lawsuit and also provided the office "documents concerning a separate open inquiry", according to a sentencing memo in his case. "I know that collusion is not a crime".

Flynn pleaded guilty previous year to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his Russian Federation contacts.

"Yeah, good luck, good luck", he said. They likened him to a mob boss for this turn of phrase. Fourteen days for Papadopoulos.

"I have no idea what they're talking about", Giuliani responded.

An American business partner of a Russian national accused by Mueller's office of ties to Russian intelligence, Patten pleaded guilty in August 2018 to unregistered lobbying for a pro-Kremlin political party in Ukraine.
