GIULIANI FURIOUS! After WaPo Reporter Reads NBC Cohen Wiretap Report to Him

Media ignited after it was revealed the Feds reportedly wiretapped Michael Cohen’s phone lines and even intercepted at least one phone call with the White House.

Rudy Giuliani responded Thursday, outraged feds are once again imposing on attorney-client privilege.

This article was updated to reflect NBC’s correction to their original report feds wiretapped Michael Cohen’s phone lines.

The Feds reportedly wiretapped Cohen’s phone lines leading up to the early April raid of his residence and office.

According to NBC, sources close to Giuliani say President Trump made a call to Cohen a few days after the FBI raided the lawyer’s residence and office.

It was during this phone call that Cohen reportedly told Trump not to call him anymore because he feared he was being recorded by prosecutors.

Giuliani immediately responded to this outrageous abuse of power, once again pointing out attorney-client privilege has been eviscerated.

WaPo reporter Robert Costa spoke to Giuliani over the phone Thursday for reaction.

Costa tweeted: NEW: Giuliani tells me he can’t confirm there were wiretaps, hasn’t been informed. But when read NBC report, he was furious. “If they picked up the president, they would have had to notify him.” Said if true, wld be a “mockery” of attorney-client privilege and “gov’t misconduct”

Giuliani hasn’t spoken with POTUS about the report as of 1:15 PM EST.

Costa tweeted: Giuliani says he hasn’t spoken to POTUS yet about the NBC News story but is about to call him to discuss…

Robert Costa then tweeted: Giuliani to Wash Post: If true, “It’s not appropriate. I mean, he’s a lawyer. You mean, I call up my lawyer and the government is wiretapping him? That’s pretty damn — I mean, they’ve already eviscerated the attorney-client privilege. This would make a mockery of it.”

Update: At 5:15 PM EST, NBC reporter, Ken Dilanian issued a correction to the original Michael Cohen wiretap story.

Ken Dilanian tweeted: NBC News has corrected its story: Michael Cohen’s phones were being monitored by a pen register, not a wiretap, senior U.S. officials say. Pen registers capture “to and from” calling and texting information, but not content.
