Trump Admits Reimbursing Lawyer For Porn Star Payoff

In interviews with Fox News on Wednesday and Thursday, however, Giuliani himself confirmed the payment and Cohen's reimbursement.

The secret $130,000 payment was made on the eve the hotly contested 2016 United States presidential election to silence Daniel's claims of a decade-old affair with Trump.

Giuliani has argued that the fact Trump reimbursed the sum should remove any suspicion of campaign finance violation.

"It would have been done in any event, whether he was a candidate or not".

Trump has denied the allegation of a sexual encounter with Daniels and told reporters last month on Air Force One he wasn't aware of Cohen's payment to her.

The drama instigated by the freewheeling former US attorney - who signed on as Trump's lawyer just last month - is the latest crisis to hit the president's legal team, which is contending with the special counsel investigation into Russian election interference and a newly revealed separate criminal probe into Cohen.

Donald Trump's new lawyer gave investigators fresh leads, say analysts
He indicated his lawyers don't want him to talk to Mueller but said , "If I thought it was fair, I would override my lawyers". The sexual encounter allegedly took place in 2006, four months after Trump's wife Melania gave birth to their son Barron.

Trump has denied the liaison.

In a statement released Friday, Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's new lawyer, walked back some of his recent comments. But Trump sought to bolster his standing on Friday.

It was Trump's own team's missteps that yielded another day of headlines about Daniels. He didn't elaborate on that either.

Giuliani also didn't rule out the possibility that the president would assert his 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination amid the investigation.

"Every election campaign law expert will tell you", he said, that Trump and Cohen did not violate election law by paying off a porn star just before the election to avoid the disclosure of embarrassing information. Either could be legally problematic.

Trump took Giuliani to the woodshed for his gaffe Friday morning.

No debt to Cohen was listed on Trump's personal financial disclosure form, which was certified on June 16, 2017.

When Stephanopoulos pointed out that Clinton did testify before a grand jury, and asked if Trump would be willing to take that step, Giuliani dodged the question by raising the Hillary Clinton investigation.

In an interview with CBS News' 60 Minutes earlier this year, Stormy Daniels detailed an alleged affair she had with Trump in 2006. She has also filed defamation suits against Cohen and Trump. "He's working hard learning the subject matter.he'll get his facts straight, he's a great guy". How stupid do they think all of us are?

The president Friday also addressed the ongoing Russian Federation investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, and said he would be happy to sit down and answer Mueller's questions.

Viewers even got treated to a brand new impression from the always unbelievable Kate McKinnon, doing her best take on Rudy Giuliani, thanks to some freakish prosthetics and impeccable delivery.
