FBI Probing Possible Banking Fraud by Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen

  • George Conway, Husband or Wife of Top Trump Counselor, Will Take White House into Job on Twitter.

"Even if it was a campaign donation, the president reimbursed it fully with a payment of $35,000 a month to pay for that and other expenses", he said.

Giuliani appeared on one of Trump's favorite programs, Justice With Judge Jeanine, which airs at 9 p.m. Mueller has also put forth interest into investigating Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.

In what appeared to be a rather tense press briefing, reporters confronted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday about Rudy Giuliani's bombshell admission that President Donald Trump repaid his lawyer for hush money given to adult film star Stormy Daniels. After a Twitter troll told her that she's a "liar" and "we know your f***ed Cohen not Trump", she epically clapped back, "Hahaha!"

Giuliani leaned heavily on his creditability as a former prosecutor in the Southern District of New York-especially when it came to bashing Comey. "He's the president of the United States".

Trump, he said, can make contributions of any size to his own campaign.

"He is a great guy", Trump said. "These agreements are very common among celebrities and people of wealth", Trump tweeted.

Both the president and Giuliani have said the payment to Daniels by Cohen had nothing to do with the presidential election.

Trump then denied that any campaign money had been used to reimburse Cohen and said he was paid through a retainer.

Giuliani nearly seemed to be begging with Trump, through the TV screen, to listen to the advice of his lawyers.

Indeed, practically every legal expert who has weighed in on Trump's various legal scandals (both Russian Federation and Stormy Daniels) has said that Trump giving sworn testimony would be a disaster, given his propensity to lie and exaggerate, and Mueller's low tolerance for perjury.

"You know what? Learn before you speak".

"I had never heard about that during the campaign", Conway told reporters Friday at the White House. But, on Friday, Trump added more confusion by saying that everything said "has been said incorrectly". In his statement, Giuliani said his previous "references to timing were not describing my understanding of the president's knowledge, but instead, my understanding of these matters".

Trump is facing mounting legal threats from the special counsel's investigation and the Cohen-Daniels situation. But Trump sought to bolster his standing on Friday.

"SNL" cast member Kate McKinnon, previously known for playing Kellyanne Conway and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, this time plays newly hired Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Cohen is facing a criminal investigation in NY, and FBI agents raided his home and office several weeks ago seeking records about the Daniels nondisclosure agreement.

In the annals of disgraced Trump lackeys who enjoyed embarrassingly brief tenures in jobs they were exceptionally bad at doing, Anthony Scaramucci may soon be in good company.

"How could I ever be confident of that?" the former New York City mayor and USA attorney said Sunday on ABC's "This Week".

Kelly's stature inside the White House has always been the subject of speculation.

The first call - a wrong number - went to Trump's former physician Dr. Harold Bornstein, played by Martin Short.
