Giuliani Says Trump Would Not Have to Comply With Mueller Subpoena

Adjust Comment Print

President Donald Trump's recently installed top personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said "we don't have to" comply with a subpoena from Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation and left open the possibility that Michael Cohen may have made payments to other women on behalf of Trump.

President Trump knew about his attorney Michael Cohen's hush money payment to Stormy Daniels several months before he denied any knowledge of it in April, according to two people familiar with the arrangement.

In the sketch, Mr Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, asked his lawyer, Michael Cohen, played by Ben Stiller, to call Ms Daniels and try to fix their ongoing legal battle "once and for all".

Adam Schuman, a former federal prosecutor in Brooklyn, told the Journal that the timeline suggests Cohen expanded his credit access in anticipation of high-dollar payoffs to defend Trump. Giuliani is appearing on ABC's "This Week".

Appearing on a Sunday talk show, Giuliani exuded confidence that Trump would come out clean on the issue and this is unlikely to affect his presidency. He also noted that no one involved in this case seems to have their story straight, and that most of what Giuliani has said to the press over the last few days seems like a complete fabrication.

"When the president said no on Air Force One", she said, "he was talking about he didn't know when the payment occurred".

When questioned again on the payments on Saturday, Trump insisted he had remained consistent in his explanations and accused reporters of pursuing a "witch hunt".

Giuliani told ABC News a presidential pardon for Cohen is "not on the table" at the moment and has not been discussed amongst Trump's legal team.

In response, Daniels' lawyer said Giuliani and Trump had "lost track of the truth" and were undermining their own attempted "coverup".

On Saturday night, Rudy Giuliani acknowledged that he's "still learning" the facts in legal cases involving Donald Trump, who hired him last month to serve as his personal attorney in the Russian Federation investigation.

"What do you need for this to all go away?" he asked. The Washington Post's Fact Checker has been tracking Trump's false or misleading public claims in office, and so far, it has found more than 3,000 such comments - an average of 6.5 claims per day. What matters, he said, is that the payment was not in violation of any campaign finance rules because it was made for personal reasons.

"No, I would like him to stop lying, quite frankly", Tapper said.

"Not after the way they've acted", he said, referring to a list of questions that the special counsel would like to ask Trump.

"I work in adult films, we're not really known for our acting", she quips.

"A resignation", Ms Daniels said.

Any payments to women, Conway added in a characteristically combative and confusing interview, "did not cross my desk as campaign manager". "I think that's going to be laid bare for the American people".

"He made payments for the President, he conducted business for the President", Giuliani said.
