Saturday Night Live Enlists Stormy Daniels for Cameo-Filled Cold Open

Trump Admits Reimbursing Lawyer For Porn Star Payoff Trump suggests Giuliani misspoke on adult film star

Meanwhile, when asked if Cohen made any payments to other women on behalf of the president besides adult film star Stormy Daniels, Giuliani said, "I have no knowledge of that, but I would think if it was necessary, yes".

Giuliani maintained Sunday that the payment could not be considered an in-kind campaign contribution because there was another explanation for it.

Giuliani also reiterated that he believes Trump would like to testify if summoned to speak with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, either in an interview or before a grand jury. He "negotiated a deal", Giuliani said, "in which he didn't admit the effectiveness of the subpoena".

He also said, "I never thought $130,000 was a real payment". Giuliani says he doesn't know when Trump knew of the payment.

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.

Trump told reporters Friday that Giuliani's rocky start is simply due to his inexperience in the position as his personal attorney.

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

Asked if Cohen made other payments like the one he made to Daniels, Conway replied: "No, none that I would be aware of". I asked the president what he meant and he said: "'I didn't know about it when the payment occurred'".

"That's not a decision to be made now, there's no reason to be made now".

Stormy Daniels has made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live in a sketch alongside Ben Stiller and Alec Baldwin.

A presidential pardon for Cohen was "not on the table", Giuliani added. The $130,000 doesn't mean anything. The Journal, meanwhile, said public records showed Cohen "gained access to as much as $774,000 ... during the 2016 presidential campaign as he sought to fix problems for his boss".

When asked if Trump would be willing to testify before a grand jury in the Russian Federation investigation, Giuliani said he was looking for "the Hillary Clinton treatment", a reference to the FBI's interview of the former secretary of state during the investigation into her personal email server. Daniels said she is being paid more nowadays for doing the same things she was already doing, but she pushed back against the notion that she was happy to be receiving so much notoriety because of Trump.

"I want him to stop lying", Tapper answered. Giuliani told ABC News he is not prepared to let Trump sit down with Mueller's team of prosecutors "after the way they've acted" and argued it would "walk (Trump) into a prosecution for perjury" or a "trap".

STEPHANOPOULOS: You stated it as fact. "They didn't cross my desk as campaign manager", she told CNN's "State of the Union".

"How could I ever be confident of that", Giuliani said in regards to whether or not the president would invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
