President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani attempted to wave away allegations that the president engaged in a conspiracy to break campaign finance laws before his election.
Former Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen was sentenced Wednesday to 36 months in prison on a variety of charges, and he implicated the president in the crime and coverup — which Giuliani insisted was not a serious violation, reported The Daily Beast.
“Nobody got killed, nobody got robbed,” Giuliani told the website. “This was not a big crime.”
Prosecutors have heard recordings of the president discussing hush money payments with the attorney and National Enquirer publisher David Pecker, who is also cooperating with investigators, but Giuliani compared the apparent felony crimes to parking citations.
“I think in two weeks they’ll start with parking tickets that haven’t been paid,” he said.
