"He's bitter Trump didn't give him a job", said an insider.
"On the question of the attorney-client privilege that Giuliani is talking about, I don't know exactly what he's talking about, meaning, when it comes to the tape that we've heard about, apparently Giuliani has waived attorney-client privilege", Abrams said. Giuliani continued, "One is with the President of the United States".
CNN aired audio from that tape last week, which features Cohen and the president discussing a payment to purchase the account of a former Playboy model who alleges she had an affair with Trump in 2006.
"[Trump] didn't know about the payments to them when it happened, that he only found out later", Giuliani said. Cohen is under investigation by the USA attorney for the Southern District of NY over his business dealings. That tape was released Wednesday through Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis.
"It seems to me his default position is to lie", Giuliani said on "Fox News Sunday."
Giuliani briefly described his view of some of those conversations, claiming that Cohen's statements on them "take it right out of the campaign contribution arsenal" and could protect the president from being scrutinized for campaign finance law violations.
"I don't think the president has obstructed this investigation", Nunberg said. "And somehow, he and his lawyer have this insane idea of just throw it all out there", said Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor. I would never prosecute a case on this guy's testimony.

CNN reported that Cohen is prepared to tell federal investigators that the president knew in ahead of time about a June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower where a Russian lawyer with links to the Kremlin was expected to deliver the damaging information about Clinton.
Trump has denied that he knew in advance of the meeting, tweeting on Friday morning that it appears Cohen is trying to make up stories to get himself out of jam.
Giuliani maintains that there's no evidence the president did anything wrong and that there is no "legal basis" for investigating the president for obstructing justice.
As the two sides head toward a confrontation over a presidential interview, White House lawyer Emmet Flood and other Trump attorneys are strategizing about how to handle a subpoena from Mueller that would seek to compel Trump to testify.
"I think the problem here is the disregard they've shown and the way in which they made promises which he has not kept", Mr Ward said.
As for the president potentially sitting down with Mueller's team, Giuliani says that the special counsel's office has been "kind of tied up" with the Paul Manafort trial, but that negotiations with the team about a possible interview with the president are ongoing.
