President Trump on Monday said in an interview with Geraldo Rivera that he’s not worried about his former personal attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, talking with special counsel Robert Mueller after pleading guilty to breaking campaign finance laws because he’s “an honest guy” and does “everything straight.”
“I’m not, because I’m an honest guy,” Trump said in an interview on “Geraldo in Cleveland” on WTAM radio that is set to air on Monday, according to The New York Times.
“And that stuff is unrelated to me. And that was Michael did that stuff. And Michael I mean you know, you know I have many, many lawyers. I have very big law firms I have that do my work.”
Trump said he was unsure if Cohen could tell federal authorities anything that could be potentially problematic for him.
“I don’t know anything because I’ll be honest, I do everything straight,” Trump claimed. “I do everything straight.”
Trump’s comments come weeks after Cohen pleaded guilty to bank and tax fraud, as well as violating campaign finance law.
ABC News reported last week that Cohen has sat for interviews with Mueller in his probe into Russian election interference and possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Kremlin.
