Michael Cohen’s lawyer Lanny Davis slammed Rudy Giuliani in a fiery interview Thursday, calling him “unhinged” and saying he should be “indicted for witness tampering.”
His impassioned comments came days after President Trump’s personal attorney made comments suggesting Cohen’s father-in-law was involved in organized crime.
“Giuliani, who is half unhinged or 100% unhinged to begin with, goes on national television and suggests a connection to organized crime because he’s a Ukrainian,” Davis said in an interview with George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America.”
He also said that “calling out a man’s father-in-law and wife in order to intimidate the witness is not fair game and it needs to be investigated.”
Davis didn’t spare Trump either.
The lawyer said the president “indisputably intimidates and obstructs justice to prevent a witness from testifying.”
The commander in chief wrote on Twitter last week to “watch” Cohen’s father-in-law. He has also suggested that Cohen’s father-in-law and wife have ties to organized crime.
Cohen on Wednesday postponed his much-awaited testimony before Congress due to threats made against his family, Davis said. The testimony was scheduled to take place early next month.
“Does the American people, even Trump voters, have any sympathy for attacking a man’s family?” Davis said. “Does any American Trump or non-Trump supporter support that kind of demagogic, reckless interference with Congress as well as obstruction of justice?”

Davis said no matter what, though, Cohen will speak about the “personal abusive behavior” he witnessed while working for Trump.
“They will not thwart this truth coming out,” Cohen’s lawyer said.
Trump took to Twitter following Davis’ interview to call out both the lawyer and his client.
“So interesting that bad lawyer Michael Cohen, who sadly will not be testifying before Congress, is using the lawyer of Crooked Hillary Clinton to represent him – Gee, how did that happen?” he wrote. “Remember July 4th weekend when Crooked went before FBI & wasn’t sworn in, no tape, nothing?”
Davis worked with former President Bill Clinton in the ‘90s.
