Giuliani Insists: Trump and I Are 'On the Same Page'

The president's lawyers have set a deadline of May 17 - one year since Mueller's appointment - to decide whether the president will submit to an interview in the Russian Federation investigation, the Journal said.

"The president is encouraging me to do more of them", he said.

It shouldn't be this complicated. The judge, T.S. Ellis III, said Friday that Mueller was more interested in Manafort providing incriminating details about Trump than he is in Manafort's fraud charges.

Giuliani made the remarks after multiple news reports said Trump was growing exhausted of Giuliani's media blitz and upset about the unflattering coverage surrounding it. Rudy declared that this made it a private transaction, and therefore it couldn't be a campaign-finance violation.

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.

Trump later commented that the former NY mayor "needs to get his facts straight".

"He had a chat with George Stephanopoulos yesterday". This makes no sense since he was asked about what Trump knew and when he knew it.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and was paid the sum as part of a "hush agreement". So, the president knew about the payment after the campaign? Giuliani has given the rest of the legal team pause, two people familiar with the matter say.

The president had previously denied knowing anything about the payment, stating that he also didn't know where the money came from.

"Well, maybe I did". "You take a look at what I said". I can prove it's rumor, but I can't prove it's fact. Yet.

Meyers continued through the series of events by discussing when the president was confronted by a reporter about his denial of knowledge about the payment on Air Force One. "Well, I don't know".

"Are you confident that his testimony and the Stormy Daniels payment won't contradict the president?" he was asked.

A spokeswoman for the first lady hit back Wednesday, saying in a statement: "Some media have chosen to take a day meant to promote kindness and positive efforts on behalf of children, to instead lob baseless accusations towards the first lady".

Rudy is not limited by his ability to gather facts, but by the president's willingness to be forthright. But the issue is not what should be expected from an average client, or even a famous one.

Rudy Giuliani's TV interviews are raising more questions than answers, sparking a storm of additional political controversies at a time when the White House has had all hands on deck trying to put them out.

Lastly, now Giuliani insists Trump had the absolute power under Article II to fire James Comey, an effort to limit the damage from his revelation that Trump fired his Federal Bureau of Investigation director for refusing to exonerate him (which would amount to obstruction of justice). And, eventually, he had to tell the truth anyway.

Meanwhile, Rudy Giuliani is denouncing claims by MSNBC's Joe Scarborough that he may have a drinking problem.
