“We want Michael to handle this in a way that’s most helpful to him,” Giuliani told ABC News on Sunday.
“Michael’s not going to lie.
He’s going to tell the truth.
As long as he does that, we have nothing to fear.”
Cohen is currently under investigation by federal prosecutors in New York, though he has not yet been charged with any wrongdoing.
His office, hotel room, and apartment were raided by the FBI in April.
The president’s longtime personal attorney raised eyebrows earlier this week when he told ABC News his “first loyalty” is to his family and the country.
Cohen’s comments led some to believe he may be willing to cooperate with prosecutors and provide them with information about Trump.
Cohen took additional steps to distance himself from Trump, removing a reference to the president from his Twitter profile this week.
Giuliani reiterated he is not worried about what Cohen may tell federal prosecutors.
“I have no concerns that Michael Cohen is going to do anything but tell the truth and if he does, as I said, there’s no suggestion that anything happened,” he said.
Among the issues Cohen faces is a $130,000 payment he facilitated just before the 2016 election to Stormy Daniels, a former adult film actress who claims to have had an affair with Trump.
The president reimbursed Cohen for the payment last year, his most recent campaign finance report revealed, though Cohen said Trump didn’t know about the payment at the time.
Giuliani said Trump “did not originally know” about the payment, but said he reimbursed Cohen when he eventually found out.
