Giuliani: 'So what' if Trump and Cohen discussed testimony

Giuliani: 'So what' if Trump and Cohen discussed testimony

He said he had briefed Trump and members of Trump's family extensively.

The comments come as the White House is denying a BuzzFeed story published on January 17 that said Trump had instructed Cohen to lie about the timing of the proposed Russian Federation deal.

Yes, Jeff. That's exactly it.

The special counsel's office took the rare step Friday of publicly repudiating the BuzzFeed story, with spokesman Peter Carr saying the article's "description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony are not accurate". "Said he had conversations with him - but the President didn't hide this".

Also on Monday, Giuliani told the New York Daily News he had confirmed with previous members of Trump's legal team - including ex-lead counsel John Dowd - that Trump did not talk to Cohen before his September 2017 Capitol Hill testimony.

Smith said BuzzFeed is "eager" to understand which parts of the report Mueller's office is challenging as inaccurate.

Trump attorney Rudy Guiliani moved the story forward Sunday, saying that it'd be "perfectly normal" if Trump spoke with Cohen ahead of Cohen's testimony before Congress.

Cohen pleaded guilty in November to charges he lied to Congress when he testified that the discussions ended in January 2016.

Trump has repeatedly condemned the Mueller probe as a "witch hunt" while denying any collusion with Moscow.

Cohen, who has been sentenced to three years in prison for lying to lawmakers, is expected to testify before the Democratic-led House Oversight Committee on February 7.

Giuliani told CNN and NBC News that Trump never asked Cohen to lie. It is also not known when BuzzFeed believes Cohen told the special counsel about Trump's instructions to lie.

Giuliani's statement that discussions for the Moscow project continued through November 2016 is Version 4. "So any time during that period, they could have talked about it", he said.

Warner added, "I would think most voters - Democrat, Republican, independent, you name it - that knowing the Republican nominee was actively trying to do business in Moscow, that the Republican nominee at least at one point had offered, if he built this building, Vladimir Putin, a free-penthouse apartment, and if those negotiations were ongoing up until the election, I think that's a relevant fact for voters to know".

Guests on the show, hosted by Joy Reid, were responding to Giuliani's recent TV appearances, in which he suggested the president may have been discussing building a proposed tower in Russian Federation until November 2016.
