Cohen's hiring of Davis, as well as his comments to ABC last week, increased speculation that Trump's former fixer was inching closer to cooperating with federal prosecutors rather than face serious charges stemming from his businesses and payments made to women, including Daniels, in order to secure their silence over alleged affairs.

Giuliani said he was not concerned by the interview.

However, Giuliani suggested there could have been an "understanding" between Trump and Cohen that he would get repaid $140,000 for things like this "nuisance settlement".

"This is the most corrupt investigation I have ever seen, that the Justice Department is allowing to go forward", Giuliani said.

Trump has insisted that he wants to do an interview with Mueller.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's home, office and hotel room in NY in April as part of a probe into his business dealings.

"We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction", Giuliani said.

'When one senior FBI official, Strzok, who was helping to lead the Russian Federation investigation at the time, conveys in a text message to another senior FBI official, Page, that "we'll stop" candidate Trump from being elected - after other extensive text messages between the two disparaging candidate Trump - it is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate's electoral prospects, ' Horowitz concluded.

In television interviews Sunday, Giuliani expressed confidence that Cohen does not have any potentially incriminating information to share with prosecutors, saying he had "zero" worries. That's something you can decide down the road, one way or the other, " Giuliani said. The reality is, as a prosecutor, I was told that many times, 'can you give the man a break, ' either by his lawyers, by his relatives, by his friends.

He said that the president would not agree to be interviewed as part of the Mueller probe unless the special counsel "can satisfy us that there's some basis for this investigation". "One day I will answer", he said.

He was asked how he might respond if the president or his legal team came after him and tried to discredit the work he did for Trump over the last decade.

Former top Federal Bureau of Investigation counterintelligence official Peter Strzok, who initially worked on the Russian Federation probe, has come under scrutiny for the series of anti-Trump texts he sent to former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair.

Cohen gave an interview two weeks ago to ABC's George Stephanopoulos, which CNN's sources said was meant to highlight two areas he wanted to distinguish himself from the president.

"I do not expect that Michael Cohen is going to lie", Giuliani said on CNN's "State of the Union". Mr. Cohen has denied any wrongdoing.
