Trump denies knowing of 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians

Giuliani says Trump could soon decide on Mueller interview Trump Org CFO subpoenaed in Cohen probe

"Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client - totally unheard of & perhaps illegal". "If they [Mueller's investigation] rely on him.it would destroy whatever case they have".

President Donald Trump is denying that he knew about a controversial summer 2016 meeting in Trump Tower between his son and Russians promising dirt on Hillary Clinton, a claim that Trump's ex-lawyer, Michael Cohen, is reportedly making.

In his Fox appearance on Sunday, Giuliani said Trump felt "disappointed" that his former ally had turned against him, acknowledging the split that now existed between Trump and Cohen while saying they did not feel "at war" with Cohen at this point.

Sam Nunberg, a former aide on President Donald Trump's campaign, said Sunday that he does "sympathize" with Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen, but he also hit back at Cohen's recent moves against Trump.

Three days after Cohen's new lawyer, Lanny Davis, released a tape of Cohen and Trump talking about paying for Playboy model Karen McDougal's silence, the relationship splintered further Friday.

"My father knew nothing of the meeting or of these events", he said in a statement issued July 9, 2017. He said again that only one of those tapes contains Trump's voice.

Others have been making this same argument for nearly as long as Donald Trump has been president, and for good reason.

Alas, Trump denies that he knew about the meeting in advance.




The criticism of a man who was once Trump's fierce defender reflects the tensions wrought by the federal investigations in NY and Washington.

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.

'There are 12 others, maybe 11 or 12 others out of the 183, in which the president is discussed at any length by Cohen, mostly with reporters, ' Giuliani continued.

Now Guiliani says that that recording is the only one of the seized tapes in which Trump himself is heard, with the rest being conversations between Cohen and third parties, including journalists whom he secretly recorded.

Cohen did not return a request for comment on Trump's tweet or the CNN report.

Giuliani told Fox he has hired technicians to determine if someone tampered with the tape, which cuts off abruptly.

Giuliani also repeatedly criticised Mueller's team of investigators for perceived bias and said the special counsel was in "bad faith" over negotiations for an interview with the president. "And the other people at the meeting that he claims he had without the president about it say he was never there". How stupid and unfair to our Country....
