National News

(NBC News) — A new NBC-Wall Street Journal poll finds 62 percent of Americans believe President Trump is lying about the Russia investigation. 

Mr. Trump’s former fixer and personal attorney Michael Cohen is going to prison, in part for lying about his efforts to build a Trump skyscraper during the campaign with help from the Russian government.

On Twitter Sunday, President Trump called Cohen a “Rat” and slammed special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as a “Democrat Scam.”

Later, Mr. Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani rejected the possibility of the president sitting down with Mueller, telling “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace “over my dead body.” 

Giuliani also implied that Cohen will not receive a presidential pardon. 

“That liar can say what he wants,” said Giuliani. “I told his lawyers there would be no discussion of a pardon.”

Meanwhile, the president and his supporters continue to point out that there’s been no evidence of collusion between his campaign and Russia.
