Giuliani: Russia Investigation Will Spur Trump Voters

Trump's lawyer Giuliani suggests other women may have been paid hush money

New Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani hasn't even been on the job publicly for a full week, but he's making the jobs of late-night comedians easy with his much-maligned media blitz, during which Seth Meyers says, "It's like he's challenged himself to confess to at least one crime per interview!"

Collins then went on to explain that Trump had originally brought Giuliani on board because he believed the former NY mayor's more aggressive approach would somehow intimidate Mueller into closing down the Russian Federation probe.

Trump also expressed annoyance that Giuliani's theatrics have breathed new life into the Daniels story.

Giuliani's comments - that Trump paid lawyer Michael Cohen back for the big Daniels payday - set off a firestorm that hasn't cooled. He also suggested the October 2016 settlement had been made because Trump was in the stretch run of his presidential campaign.

Giuliani then revealed that Trump reimbursed Cohen, contradicting Trump's past statement that he was unaware of the payment.

But, instead, you've just gone out there, Mr. Giuliani, and said, "Yeah, maybe he paid off other people". "Don't know and doesn't matter to me". To which he replied, "Funneled it through the law firm, and the president repaid him".

Colbert also marveled that "Rudy was so all over the place that Stephanopoulos couldn't even confirm that Trump and Stormy Daniels knew each other". "And already the president is disappointed in his performance".

"They're admitting to enough that warrants scrutiny". "This is not the way to handle a complicated case". The last client that Giuliani represented in a court was well over a decade ago and that was the opiod industry who ended up paying more than $600 million because Giuliani couldn't get him off the hook. He fights and will win for @realDonaldTrump @POTUS.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani pushed back on reports that his boss is growing exhausted of his media tear, telling NBC News on Tuesday that the president was actually encouraging him to do more TV hits in the coming days. But some aides have been reluctant to broach the subject with Trump because it only increases their liability, according to officials.

Oops. That means the payment to Daniels, which Cohen says he made with funds from his home equity line of credit, could be construed as an unreported and probably illegal campaign contribution, since its objective was to help Trump win the election.

The episode revived worries in Trump's inner circle about Giuliani, who enjoys the media limelight and has a tendency to go off-script. He's done this so many times throughout his very short presidency. He did not get the post.
