Giuliani: Michael Cohen Is An ‘Unethical Scumbag’

Saagar Enjeti White House Correspondent

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Presidential attorney attacked Michael Cohen for recording past conversations with Donald Trump while acting as his lawyer, in a Monday morning interview on “Fox & Friends.”

“The guy is unethical, he’s a scumbag, he’s a horrible person. I’ve never heard of a lawyer taping his client without the client’s consent,” Giuliani said after being confronted with past comments praising Cohen.

Cohen recently released a tape of a conversation he had with Trump to CNN in which they discussed alleged payments to a Playboy model who claims an affair with the President from 2006.

Giuliani continued that the tape Cohen released was likely doctored, according to an expert employed by his team. Trump has alleged the same and ripped Cohen:

“What kind of a lawyer would tape a client? So sad! Is this a first, never heard of it before?” he tweeted. “Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (cut) while I was presumably saying positive things? I hear there are other clients and many reporters that are taped – can this be so? Too bad!”
