Giuliani: Cohen Wiretap Makes 'Mockery' of Attorney-Client Privilege

Giuliani: Cohen Wiretap Makes 'Mockery' of Attorney-Client Privilege

By    |   Thursday, 03 May 2018 02:33 PM

A furious Rudy Giuliani on Thursday blasted the government's reported wiretap of attorney Michael Cohen, telling The Washington Post that it's "not appropriate" and it makes a "mockery" of attorney-client privilege. 

Further, the newest member of President Donald Trump's legal team said if true, it's "government misconduct."

Giuliani was reacting to NBC's report that federal investigators had wiretapped Cohen's phone prior to raiding his homes and offices, and they picked up at least one phone call between Cohen and the White House.

"If they picked up the president, they would have to notify him," Giuliani told the Post.

NBC reports that Giuliani advised Trump not to call Cohen after the raids, in case investigators were listening.
