Last night’s bombshell revelation that Michael Cohen was willing to tell investigators working for Robert Mueller that Donald Trump knew about the June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting and approved it, came at exactly the right time. The news broke literally right before Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani was to appear live on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time.
Giuliani, who less than three months ago claimed that Michael Cohen “is an honest, honorable man,” had this to say about the President’s former attorney last night:
“He has lied all his life… 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.”

Giuliani clearly appeared surprised and caught off guard during the interview, contradicting himself, and seemed to be quite a bit flustered. Apparently Michael Avenatti agreed that Giuliani’s performance was quite a disaster, at least for the President and Mr. Cohen, tweeting the following message to him just moments ago.
“@RudyGiuliani I saw your interview last night with @ChrisCuomo. 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.”
Avenatti, clearly implies that Giuliani isn’t actually helping the President, but instead helping his team, which now appears to include at least three more women alleging to have been paid to keep quiet about affairs with Mr. Trump.
