According to reports, Giuliani has had to lay off members of his personal staff as his legal woes mount.

"He's going to get stiffed. All right?" Cohen said, adding that Trump "does not pay legal bills."

"Nor does he learn from his previous mistakes, which is the same exact thing that he did to me," Trump's former lawyer added. "He doesn't care about anyone or anything other than himself."

Both Cohen and Giuliani worked as Trump's personal attorney and became embroiled in legal troubles as a consequence of the role.

Trump dispatched Giuliani to search for damaging information about Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in Ukraine in 2019. Federal investigators have raided Giuliani's offices and apartment as part of their probe into whether he was working on behalf of Ukrainians in the push for dirt on the Bidens.

FBI 'warned Rudy Giuliani he was target of Russia plot to smear Biden'

  FBI 'warned Rudy Giuliani he was target of Russia plot to smear Biden' Multiple sources said Giuliani was warned about Russia's attempts to potentially use him to push false claims to smear Joe Biden during the White House race. At the time, Giuliani was a key figure in Trump's reelection campaign and was seeking to unearth damaging information about Biden and his son Hunter over their dealings in Ukraine. But, despite the warning, Giuliani plowed ahead with a trip to Ukraine that December where he met with a Ukrainian lawmaker who the US government later said was 'an active Russian agent' who had ran an 'influence campaign' to sway the outcome of the election.

Michael Cohen has hired New York lawyer Guy Petrillo to represent him in a federal investigation into his business dealings, and has told associates he wants President Donald Trump , his former boss, to pay his legal fees, according to people familiar with the matter. But those payments helped cover Cohen ’s legal representation in the separate Russia investigation, not in the probe of his business dealings. Trump told reporters on Friday that Cohen was no longer his lawyer. “I always liked Michael Cohen ,” he said .

Trump will lose legal protection once he leaves office and faces threats both potential and already in train. He has reportedly discussed issuing pre-emptive pardons to himself, Kushner, Giuliani and other family members and close aides. It is not clear whether a self-pardon would work. Kiriakou told the Times his pursuit of a pardon came up during a meeting with Giuliani on another subject, at the Trump International hotel in Washington last year. During the meeting, which reportedly “involved substantial alcohol”, Giuliani went to the bathroom.

Giuliani also led Trump's bid to overturn the result of last year's presidential election and faces two multi-billion dollar lawsuits from voting machine companies Dominion and Smartmatic for groundlessly claiming that they flipped millions of votes.

Giuliani has denied any allegations of wrongdoing in Ukraine and has said he welcomes the lawsuits as they'll provide an opportunity to further investigate the election machine companies.

Cohen was formerly one of the most trusted members of Trump's inner circle and was jailed in 2019 for lying to Congress and financial crimes relating to hush money payoffs to two women who claimed they had affairs with Trump.

He has turned on his former boss, and in a memoir, last year alleged that Trump is a racist and conman who has committed tax and financial crimes.

Trump has denied Cohen's claims and claims he is a serial liar.

In the interview, Friday Cohen claimed that Trump had abandoned him when he got into legal trouble and would do the same to Giuliani. He welcomed the former New York City mayor to the "under the bus club."

"He thought Donald Trump was going to pay him $140,000 a day. He has a better chance of sling-shooting himself to the moon," Cohen said.

"It's impossible. Donald Trump wouldn't pay him two cents," he continued. "His feeling is, it is an honor and a privilege to go to prison for him, to do his dirty work."
