President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani admitted Sunday that President Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen held discussions about Trump tower in Moscow through November of 2016.
In the past, Giuliani has tried to shield the president from fall-out from Michael Cohen’s testimony about Russia and financial misdeeds by claiming Cohen is not a reliable witness.
Now, Giuliani appears to be confirming part of what Michael Cohen has claimed.
The shift was enough to confuse CNN’s Kate Bolduan as she and legal analyst Shan Wu tried to make sense of the latest twist in the Mueller probe.
“So now we’re supposed to believe Michael Cohen?” Bolduan says incredulously.
“We’ll tell you when Cohen is telling the truth and when he’s lying,” Wu added. They then shared a laugh about Giuliani as arbiter of truth.
