In April, Trump said in a tweet that Cohen is "a fine person ... who I have always liked & respected".
Jay Goldberg, another former Trump lawyer, argued Friday on CNN's "Erin Burnett Out Front" that Giuliani "immeasurably" damaged his case against Cohen with the sudden shift in tone. Davis did not immediately return a message seeking comment about Trump's claims.
In an Sunday morning appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" Nunberg said Cohen's latest moves were understandable, but a turn away from his longtime loyalty to Trump.
This follows Thursday night's bombshell report that Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, claims the president knew in advance about a 2016 meeting between his aides and a Russian delegation offering dirt on Hillary Clinton. Mr. Trump's failure to publicly denounce Putin's role in the 2016 election caused concern across the political world, leading many to question if the president had more faith in a known US adversary than his own intelligence chiefs.

"Ultimately, I felt that he wasn't", Nunberg said.
"Usually you don't discuss joint defense agreements, but i think it's obvious there's been so much public discussion that there isn't one right now", Giuliani said.

"I didn't know him very well". "Once again, I feel bad for what his family is going through".

Lanny Davis, Cohen's attorney, told Newsweek that "the CNN leak did not come from us".
"And, frankly, by the time anyone was aware of it, which was summer of this year, as I stated earlier, I wouldn't have wanted to get him involved in it because it had nothing to do with him", Trump Jr. added.
The New York State Bar Association calls such secret recording unethical. CNN first reported the news Thursday night. So Cohen's actions were not illegal.
On Friday, Trump denied knowing of the controversial 2016 Trump Tower meeting in advance, and suggested that Cohen was not being truthful. But the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign remains a divisive political issue, with Republicans more likely to doubt the FBI and USA intelligence agencies and more likely to back the president. "Remember, they never consummated this transaction, so there's no idea there's FEC violation, but with that said, these sound like the conversations you'd hear in private".

The armed homeowner - whose name hasn't been released - was taken to a hospital where he died, the paper said. According to police, the man had a gun and ignored multiple orders to drop it before an officer shot him.
