President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, took aim at special counsel Robert Mueller in an interview airing Sunday, criticizing what he called “unethical” tactics by prosecutors in Mueller’s office after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress.

“They obviously exerted a lot of pressure on him.
