Pres. Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on Michael Cohen: “As long as he tells the truth, we’re home free…Michael’s not going to lie. He’s going to tell the truth. As long as he does that, we have nothing to fear” https://t.co/1jEgXDqgFe #ThisWeek pic.twitter.com/sOJr8QVpID

“Giuliani reiterated in a text to CNN Monday morning, ‘the truth will set you free. The President did nothing wrong with Michael Cohen. Everything has been a dead-end because there is nothing there.’These sources would not comment on whether Cohen’s attorney, Guy Petrillo, has been meeting with prosecutors in New York and referred inquiries about any potential case to Petrillo.”
Did @rudygiuliani really say on Sunday shows that @michaelcohen212 should cooperate with prosecutors and tell the truth? Seriously? Is that Trump and Giuliani definition of “truth”? Trump/Giuliani next to the word “truth” = oxymoron. Stay tuned. #thetruthmatters

It is the clearest indication yet that Michael Cohen has completely changed his strategy. Hiring a close friend of Hillary Clinton was a shot at Donald Trump.
Vanity Fair wrote about Cohen’s new relationship with Davis . One striking part of it reads:
“…particularly since Davis came on board, Cohen’s mood has been somewhat buoyed. He is at least somewhat at ease knowing that there will be someone highly skilled at this high-wire act of defending someone under extreme pressure and legal jeopardy, and overall, those around him believe he ‘won the hell out of the week,’ as one person close to Cohen put it.
‘For the first time, people are willing to say he’s being used as collateral damage and that they are going to hold Trump accountable for his misdeeds instead of holding Cohen accountable,’ this person added.”
"I have talked to people around [Michael Cohen] who say that he has been angered by some of the statements that Rudy Giuliani has made about him, questioning his credibility," @jeffpeguescbs says on whether Cohen will cooperate in Robert Mueller probe. pic.twitter.com/80Dant69f2
