Trump lawyer doesn't rule out possibility there were payments to other women

HeraldScotland Rudy Giuliani Says Trump May Take the 5th

The former New York City mayor is embracing his client's preferred approach to challenges as he mounts Trump's defense through the media.

Giuliani says he doesn't know when Trump knew of the payment. You are damn right he could be lying, George.

Giuliani said that Cohen is no longer Trump's personal attorney, adding that that would be a conflict.

Stephanopoulos also asked Giuliani whether Trump would comply with a subpoena.

"Why wouldn't you say, "Go in, talk to Robert Mueller, tell the truth"?"

Giuliani said on "This Week" that he had no knowledge of other similar payments by Cohen, but that the attorney could have made them "if it was necessary".

"It seems to me that the approach last week of the Trump team plays into the hands of Mueller's tactic to try, at any cost, to try to find technical violations against lower-ranking people so that they can be squeezed", Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor who has informally counseled the president, said on NBC's Meet the Press.

"The Hillary Clinton treatment is what I'm looking for". "I imply, what we witnessed by Rudy Giuliani could also be one of many worst TV appearances by any legal professional on behalf of a shopper in trendy instances".

President Donald Trump's new attorney won't rule out the possibility that the president would assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the swirling Russian Federation investigation.


"The mob takes the Fifth Amendment", Mr Trump said.

Giuliani's aggressive defense of the president in recent weeks has pleased Trump but exasperated White House aides and attorneys and left even supporters questioning his tactics.

When asked during an interview on ABC News's "This Week" whether Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, had made payments to other women, Giuliani said he did not know of any but acknowledged that this could have happened.

When asked on Sunday whether Trump knew about the payment to Daniels after the campaign, Giuliani demurred. "He made payments for the president or he's conducted business for the president, which means he had legal fees, monies laid out and expenditures".

After several calls, Cohen finally connects Trump (Baldwin) with Stormy, who tells The Donald, "Sorry, Donald, it's too late for that". The adult film actress, who is now suing Trump and Cohen over an NDA regarding an alleged affair with the then-real estate mogul as well as defamation, has been a central figure in numerous latest national headlines, as her allegations against the POTUS and Cohen have ripple effects in the justice system.

He said that he and Jay Sekulow, another lawyer for Trump, were in agreement that the president should avoid speaking with Mueller.

"I can't prove that".

Neither the payment nor the liability to Cohen was disclosed on the Trump campaign or the president's financial disclosures. "It may have involved the campaign, doesn't matter, and it would've been done under any other circumstances, if there was no campaign".
