Giuliani: Trump 'Encouraging Me to Do More' Interviews

Would President Trump Really Plead the Fifth?

Would President Trump Really Plead the Fifth?

"Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the, you know, last debate with Hillary Clinton", Giuliani said on "Fox & Friends". "But everybody knows that, and he gives us great encouragement that we've finally gotten on the offensive". "No one knows what's going on, which means reasonable doubt".

With a knack for screen time, Giuliani has enjoyed the limelight but reports suggest if he keeps on with his antics, the president might just bar screen time for him altogether.

Giuliani added: "He certainly agrees with it. and people around the White House who are talking and leaking certainly don't have the president's best interest at heart".

They described a man whose once-powerful legal career long ago morphed into a role of attracting clients for law firms and using his contacts to help emerging businesses.

The idea of Trump answering Mueller's questions in writing was previously floated as a possibility, but Giuliani explained Monday that Mueller's team had rejected the proposal. Citing four sources familiar with the president's thinking, CNN said Trump "has been flustered by the onslaught of negative coverage generated" by Giuliani.

Novartis paid Trump lawyer's firm $1.2 million for advice
According to the health care trade publication Stat News , Cohen had promised Novartis access to Trump and his inner circle. Shortly after the payments a senior Novartis executive dined with Mr Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Trump, who has denied the affair with Daniels, was angry that Giuliani had given the impression that other women may have made similar charges of infidelity, according to the people familiar with his views. A Washington Post-ABC News poll showed last month 69 percent supported special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign.

If that weren't bad enough, we also still have Michael Cohen kicking around out there who is also pretty pissed off at Rudy Giuliani and he said recently that "this whole mess with Giuliani has made things so much worse".

But the legal reasoning wasn't airtight - if Cohen made the payment to influence the campaign, it didn't matter if Trump paid it back or not - and Trump wasn't ready to endorse Rudy's version of events.

While many said it was a blunder, Giuliani insisted in a follow-up spot on "Fox & Friends" the next day that it was part of a plan to show that the payments were not campaign finance violations.

Giuliani released a statement Friday saying there was "no campaign violation" because the payment was not made for a campaign goal but to protect Trump's family. Giuliani told the Times that the payments began after the election, but he told the Post that Cohen might have used some of Trump's money before the election, too. Is Donald Trump two weeks, three weeks after hiring Giuliani already ready to fire him?
