President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani bashed Michael Cohen’s explosive planned opening testimony for the House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday, calling it “pathetic.” Giuliani also alleged that Cohen might be involved in Russian organized crime in a statement to the Washington Post.

Giuliani seized on one of Trump’s favorite insults when attempting to discredit Cohen by raising questions about his father-in-law.
