It’s hard to believe that former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani works for Donald Trump instead of against him. On Thursday, after news broke that Trump’s longtime former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, claims that the former reality show star authorized his son’s 2016 meeting with a Kremlin lawyer at Trump Tower, Rudy Giuliani tried to do damage control.
Mind you, this is the same meeting that Russians were expected to offer Trump’s campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton, and to top that off, Cohen is willing to talk to special counsel Robert Mueller about that infamous gathering, according to CNN.
So, Giuliani was interviewed by CNN’s Chris Cuomo and it went off the rails. They also spoke of what was said on the newly released audio from team Cohen in which it outs Trump as knowing about the hush money payoff. Giuliani launched some personal attacks on Cohen, calling Trump’s former attorney a “pathological liar” and “an incredible liar who’s got a tremendous motive to lie now because he’s got nothing to give.”
“He has lied all his life,” he continued, adding that “a person who is found to be an incredible liar, he’s got a tremendous motive to lie now… I don’t think anyone believes that.”
That’s ADORABLE considering that it was just a few weeks ago that Giuliani was singing Cohen’s praises. In May, Giuliani said that Cohen “doesn’t have any incriminating evidence about the president or himself,” and added that “the man is an honest, honorable lawyer.”
Giuliani last night: Cohen “has lied all his life.”

Wellll… Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, would like Giuliani to keep talking.
“I saw your interview last night with @ChrisCuomo,” Avenatti tweeted. “Thank you! You are the best lawyer we have working for us on our team (and for free). Keep up the great work. Please don’t stop making public statements.”

Cuomo told Giuliani that the audio “is inconsistent with what the president and with what Hope Hicks said from the campaign.”
“He knew about this until after the fact,” Cuomo continued. “Not true, Rudy. We know it from the tape.”
Giuliani then tried to argue that it could go either way (it can’t go either way).
“No, that’s not right. The tape is really — can be argued either way on whether he knew or he didn’t know,” Giuliani replied.
Cuomo asked how Trump could have known what the dollar amount was, and Giuliani said, “Cohen could have told him two hours before and not taped it. How do I — there’s one conversation between Cohen and the president that’s taped. You think they had one conversation in two years?”
Yeaaahh, sure, that’s the ticket.
“There’s no way you’re going to bring down the president of the United States on the testimony uncorroborated of a proven liar,” Giuliani added. “I guarantee you this guy is a proven liar.”
Giuliani of May 2018 disagrees with Giuliani of July 2018.
Keep talking, Rudy.
