WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump s lawyer Rudy Giuliani is leaving open the possibility that Trump and former personal attorney Michael Cohen might have discussed Cohen s congressional testimony.
But, he says, "so what" if he did?
Giuliani appeared Sunday on CNN, where he said he didn t know if Trump had discussed with Cohen a 2017 congressional interview at which Cohen admitted lying about a Trump Tower project in Moscow.
Buzzfeed News reported last week that Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress. Special counsel Robert Mueller s office took the unusual step of publicly disputing the story.
Giuliani told CNN and NBC News that Trump never asked Cohen to lie. But he also didn t rule out that they might have discussed the testimony, asking "so what if he talked to him about it?"
