ABC News reports:
In the weeks following the federal raids on former Michael Cohen’s law office and residences last April, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and confidant was contacted by two New York attorneys who claimed to be in close contact with Rudy Giuliani, the current personal attorney to Trump, according to sources with direct knowledge of the discussions.
The outreach came just as Cohen, who spent more than a decade advocating for Trump, was wrangling with the most consequential decision of his life; whether to remain in a joint defense agreement with the president and others, or to flip on the man to whom he had pledged immutable loyalty.
According to the report, the lawyers were trying to convince Cohen not to flip. This may be the item that Cohen clammed up about during his public testimony, saying the Southern District was investigating his last contacts with Trump. Giuliani is refusing to comment on this report, citing client confidentiality. Hit the link.
