Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday he accepts President Donald Trump "at his word" that he didn't know beforehand about a meeting between his oldest son and Russians promising dirt on campaign rival Hillary Clinton, and he doesn't understand why the president's former attorney, Michael Cohen, would have leaked something like that.
On Friday, Trump accused Cohen of "trying to make up stories" to wiggle out of his own legal problems. "He even retained Bill and Crooked Hillary's lawyer".
CNN, citing unidentified sources with knowledge of the matter, said Cohen was willing to make that assertion to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether Trump's presidential campaign had worked with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 US presidential election.
And that's information that Cohen is willing to share with Robert Mueller, the special counsel looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election, NBC News reported, also citing an unnamed source.

CNN reported that Cohen claims he was present, along with several others, when Trump was informed of the Russians' offer by Trump Jr.in 2016. On one level, it's hardly a smoking gun since the payment that Trump and Cohen are discussing never actually happened. "Mueller has always been said to be interested in the circumstances of that statement, which denied that the meeting had dealt with campaign issues at all".
"It was such a nothing, there was nothing to tell", Trump Jr told Sean Hannity on Fox News in July 2017, denying any mention of the meeting to candidate Donald Trump. "The FBI raided his office not to get information on Donald Trump but because there was evidence of a possible crime and crimes by Michael Cohen".
Trump, who has said in the past he did not know about the meeting in advance, suggested Cohen was implicating Trump in exchange for possible immunity on unrelated charges related to his business dealings.
Three days after Mr. Cohen's new lawyer, Lanny Davis, released a tape of Mr. Cohen and Mr. Trump talking about paying for Playboy model Karen McDougal's silence, the relationship splintered further on Friday.
Cohen has not yet made a decision to work with the federal prosecutors from the Southern District of NY, according to two people familiar with his thinking but not authorized to discuss private conversations.
"I think you're going to find it very informative and very, very interesting", Trump said.
On "This Week" Sunday, ABC Chief Legal Analyst Dan Abrams told Co-Anchor Martha Raddatz that Giuliani has "waived attorney-client privilege" in regard to the tape. Earlier this month, however, he said that his loyalty is first to his family and country, not the President.
Guiliani explained the change of heart by telling host Chris Wallace on Sunday he didn't realize Cohen was a "pathological liar" until he released secretly recorded conversations with this then-client, President Trump.
