Rudy Giuliani Says Trump May Take the 5th

Rudy Giuliani Says Trump May Take the 5th

But Giuliani revealed last week that Trump had reimbursed Cohen for that payment and other unspecified items.

Trump had initially said that he had no knowledge of his personal lawyer Michael Cohen paying $130,000 to Daniels to make her silent over the alleged affair ahead of the 2016 USA presidential election.

Cohen uses unconvincing code language to tell Baldwin's Trump that he's anxious that the Federal Bureau of Investigation knows about "our allusion K and obstructive of justice J".

Giuliani, the former mayor of NY, implied the payment was made just weeks before the election to prevent Daniels from hurting Trump's chances to win - which if true could potentially have been a criminal violation of election laws. He said that he and another one of Trump's attorneys, Jay Sekulow, had both discussed the possibility, and "hope we get a chance to tell him the risk he's taking" by talking to Mueller.

Trump said Mueller's team of veteran investigators were Democrats, suggesting he could not get a fair shake in the probe into whether his election campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 election, and whether he had illegally tried to obstruct the Mueller investigation. "He's a great guy".

The payment was made by the president's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Trump then acknowledged the payments on Thursday on Twitter while denying Daniels' underlying allegation about sexual contact.

Sanders also tried repeatedly to direct reporters back to the statements made by Giuliani and Trump.

He admitted that he was returning to national TV even though he is still not fully versed with the facts of the Stormy Daniels case or any other of Trump's legal issues.




"This was information that the president didn't know at the time, but eventually learned", Huckabee responded.

He said Mr Cohen received 460,000 dollars (£339,000) or 470,000 dollars (£346,000) in all for expenses related to Mr Trump.

That unpleasant odor wafting from the direction of the White House is the sour smell of panic, as the president's lies threaten to unravel - and the law closes in. But Giuliani said the repayment took place over months in the form of a payment for services not rendered. "President Trump's payment to Mr. Cohen was not for legal services", Cummings wrote. According to the Journal, investigators are probing whether Cohen might have committed fraud either by inflating the stated value of the assets that backed the loans, or by misrepresenting how the funds would be used.

Daniels filed a lawsuit over the nondisclosure agreement, claiming it was void because Trump never signed it himself.

Trump's irritation was plain Friday when reporters reminded him of his previous denial.

"All I'm telling is you that this country is right now running so smooth".

In the annals of disgraced Trump lackeys who enjoyed embarrassingly brief tenures in jobs they were exceptionally bad at doing, Anthony Scaramucci may soon be in good company.

Advisers, at times, refer to Hannity as the "shadow" chief of staff, rivaling White House chief of staff John F. Kelly in terms of influence.

After a chaotic series of calls, Stiller got Daniels on the phone with Baldwin.
