Rudy Giuliani called Michael Cohen an 'honest, honorable lawyer' in May. Now, he's an 'incredible liar.'
Michael Cohen is officially out of President Trump’s lawyer squad, and current club leader Rudy Giuliani wants to make that very clear.
On last night’s episode of Cuomo Prime Time, Giuliani turned on Cohen, the president’s former longtime personal lawyer. “He’s lied all his life,” Giuliani told CNN’s Chris Cuomo of Cohen. “There is no doubt in my mind that he’s just not credible.” “He has lied all his life… a person who is found to be an incredible liar, he’s got a tremendous motive to lie now… I don’t think anyone believes that.” Rudy Giuliani dismisses report Michael Cohen claims Trump knew in advance of 2016 Trump Tower meeting
— Cuomo Prime Time (@CuomoPrimeTime) July 27, 2018 Giuliani’s accusation came after the Tuesday release of a tape in which Cohen and the president discussed buying the rights to a former Playboy model’s story of an alleged affair between her and Trump.
