Giuliani: It is possible Michael Cohen paid off other women for Trump

Giuliani: It is possible Michael Cohen paid off other women for Trump

When Giuliani was asked if he was confident that Trump, should he appear before Mueller, would not invoke his constitutional right under the Fifth Amendment to remain silent, Giuliani responded, "How could I ever be confident of that?".

The former New York City mayor's tendency to put his foot in his mouth prompted some Twitter users to question his "lawyering" skills. Giuliani added that he would advise against a sit down with Meuller, despite Trump's openness to the idea.

Giuliani said he had "no knowledge of that", but "I would think if it was necessary, yes". He's the president of the United States.

During a 2016 campaign rally, Trump disparaged staffers of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, for taking the Fifth during a congressional investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state. Baldwin's Trump said to Stiller's Cohen over the phone. "The mob takes the Fifth Amendment".

A subpoena fight would likely find its way to the Supreme Court, which has never firmly decided whether presidents can be compelled to speak under oath.

Rep. Adam Schiff, a former US attorney and the ranking Democrat on the House panel that investigated the 2016 campaign, immediately slapped down Giuliani's claim that Trump could skirt skirt a subpoena.

Kate McKinnon has made a meal of skewering Attorney General Jeff Sessions and this week she steps in with a new impersonation as conniving buffoon Rudy Giuliani and nails it.

Giuliani was also asked about Trump's reimbursement of his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a $130,000 hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election for her discretion about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump about a decade earlier. Giuliani, who was recently hired Trump's attorney, said in a separate interview Sunday that he did not know if Cohen paid other women to keep quiet. "Everyone knows it's just an act", Baldwin said as Trump.

Conway said repeatedly that Trump was not lying when he said he did not know about Cohen's $130,000 payment to Daniels.

'I would love to speak because we've done nothing wrong, ' he said.

Avenatti stated later in response to Giuliani, "I feel it's apparent, George, to the American those who it is a cover-up, that [Trump's team members] are making it up as they go alongside".

"The "no" refers to when the payment occurred", she told CNN.

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

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