Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said the president did not know beforehand about a 2016 meeting between his campaign and Russians, as the president's former attorney is reportedly ready to tell prosecutors.
President Donald Trump's former campaign aide Sam Nunberg said he does "sympathize" with Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen, but said his decision to release a secretly recorded tape of a conversation with Trump as going "too far".
Giuliani, one of Trump's attorneys, railed against special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian Federation interference in the election and whether Trump obstructed justice during two TV interviews Monday. "Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice!"
"I can't tell you whether he would pardon him or not", Giuliani told CNN "New Day" co-anchor Alisyn Camerota, adding, "I can't take away from the President, nor would I, the discretion to pardon anyone".

Cohen recorded conversations he had with Trump and others, and the recordings are now in the hands of federal investigators.

President Donald Trump responded to his former personal attorney Michael Cohen's claim that Trump knew in advance about the infamous meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower during the 2016 election.
He also called raids of Cohen's home, office and hotel room earlier this year "inconceivable" and "almost unheard of". Talk of more to come.
Giuliani's comments echo similar statements made by other members of the Trump camp, including the president himself. The government has been totally ethical about this, ' Giuliani said.
Legal experts told Business Insider last week that they found it freakish that Cohen felt the need to record a conversation with Trump, and some said they had never heard of an attorney secretly recording a client.
Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he did not remember with whom he spoke at that time, but others testified that his father, Donald Trump, uses a blocked line.
Cohen, whose business dealings are being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has longtime dealings in the taxi industry and owns several medallions for New York City yellow cabs that allow them to pick up passengers on the street.
No evidence has publicly emerged that the Trump campaign has engaged in these activities, though special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is ongoing. "You better buckle up buttercup because Mr. Trump's stupidity and disloyalty is about to catch up to him (and you)".
