UPDATE 2-Trump lawyer Giuliani says Mueller report 'better than I expected'

UPDATE 2-Trump lawyer Giuliani says Mueller report 'better than I expected'President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian interference in the 2016 election, whether the Trump campaign colluded, and whether Trump obstructed justice was more positive than he had anticipated, based on the summary of the report released on Sunday. “It’s better than I expected,” said Giuliani, who, echoing Trump, relentlessly attacked Mueller and his work when he began to represent the president last year. Mueller’s report, according to the summary by U.S. Attorney General William Barr, found no evidence President Donald Trump’s campaign conspired with Russia in the 2016 election.

Trump's ex-lawyer Cohen says testimony 'could have been clearer': lawyer

Trump's ex-lawyer Cohen says testimony 'could have been clearer': lawyerU.S. President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen’s testimony to Congress regarding any potential pardon for his crimes “could have been clearer,” but he never personally asked the president for such a reprieve, Cohen’s lawyer said. In a statement to lawmakers on Tuesday, Cohen’s legal team sought to clarify his recent testimony amid questions over whether Cohen sought, or Trump offered, a pardon to the man who once declared he would take a bullet for the Republican president but later flipped to cooperate with federal prosecutors. Cohen, who is to report to prison in May for campaign finance crimes and previously lying to Congress, said at a public hearing before a U.S. House of Representatives panel last month, “I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from President Trump.” Trump himself challenged that claim.
