Trump's ex-lawyer could have paid other women, says Rudy Giuliani

His remarks have also put Daniels and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, back in the spotlight.

Mr Giuliani, who was hired by Mr Trump last month, said he's still learning the facts of the Mueller case and the details of Mr Trump's knowledge of the payment to Daniels. Giuliani's statement contradicted a prior claim from the president, who said last month that he was not aware of the payment. "Cohen didn't even ask". Then he asked: "What do you need for this to all go away?" "He did his job".

Legal experts have said the revelation that Trump reimbursed Cohen raises new questions, including whether the money represented repayment of an undisclosed loan or could be seen as reimbursement for a campaign expenditure.

"Can't say that", Giuliani said. I can just say it's rumor.

If Trump meant to reimburse Cohen for such payments, they should have been reported by the president on a 2017 financial disclosure form that required him to state his financial liabilities, Eisen said.

The president has repeatedly expressed his desire to sit down with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and clear his name once and for all.

Golden Knights beat Sharks 5-3 in Game 5
Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 84.8 percent of their opponents power plays. But from what we have seen so far, this series is far from over and can very likely return to Sin City for an epic Game 7.

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

"I'm giving the best information I have".

Giuliani, meanwhile, said Sunday that while he is not aware of any payments Cohen made to other women, he believes Trump's personal lawyer would have done so if he deemed it "necessary". That has stirred accusations that Cohen's payment to the porn actress amounted to an illegal campaign contribution.

The sketch also featured Kate McKinnon as Rudy Giuliani, Cecily Strong as Melania Trump, Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump and Jimmy Fallon as Jared Kushner. It is unclear when or how the reimbursement took place.

In the sketch, Stiller's Cohen is attempting to do damage control and finally get the White House's story straight about Stormy Daniels-though it seems the cast members are stuck in a never-ending game of telephone-all while a pair of stunned F.B.I. agents listen in.

"I don't know when the president learned about it", he said.

He said the Congress government in the state had launched several schemes that has helped farmers. Deve Gowda, another such arrangement between the two parties can not be ruled out.

Asked why Cohen had made the payment on Air Force One in April, he replied: 'You'll have to ask Michael Cohen.

Mr Trump persisted, saying: "I solved North and South Korea, why can't I solve us?" And either these payments-whoever and wherever they came from- were structured to avoid campaign finance law violations, or they were "funneled", in Giuliani's word, through a law firm, which made them, in his opinion, legal. "So Mueller likely would prevail on the issue of forcing him into a subpoena". But it did little to spell out when precisely Trump knew of the payment or how involved he was in reimbursing Cohen.

Turley suggested on CBS' "Face the Nation" that if Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of prosecutors are pursuing an obstruction of justice case in the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, the payments to Daniels could make it for them. "So I don't - I don't know".

We know no such thing, of course.

"That money was not campaign money, sorry", Giuliani added.

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