On ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, Giuliani stressed that he wasn't anxious about testimony that Cohen might give. "This is the most corrupt investigation I have ever seen that the Justice Department is allowing to go forward". The president did nothing wrong with him, so we've gone through every document we can.
But once Mueller found out, he dismissed them from the investigation.
"We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction", he said.
While he wouldn't tell Stephanopoulos if he would cooperate with prosecutors, he also didn't dampen such speculation, taking issue with some of Trump's criticisms of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation and even going out of his way to praise the FBI.

"I have no concerns that Michael Cohen is going to do anything but tell the truth", Giuliani added.

Unfortunately, the incessant attempts to invalidate the investigation and paint it as a "witch hunt" seem to be working.
"Michael Cohen should cooperate with the government. You can't abridge your power to do it, that's something you can decide down the road one way or the other".
Rudy Giuliani told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday that he has "zero" concerns about Cohen, who once described himself as "the guy who would take a bullet" for Trump.
