Trump could invoke Fifth Amendment in Russian Federation probe, Giuliani says

06 May 2018

Instead, Daniels herself did the honours in a skit in which she was depicted in a phone call with U.S. President Donald Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, which left him reeling between arousal and fear. As several defense attorneys told my colleague Abigail Tracy earlier this week, Trump's best option would be to plead the Fifth Amendment.

Asked if Cohen had made any other payments to women on Trump's behalf, Giuliani said: "I have no knowledge of that".

Giuliani says despite Trump's openness to sit down with special counsel Robert Mueller he would strongly advise Trump against it.

"I firmly believe there is going to be too much evidence of wrongdoing by him and those around him for him to be able to survive the balance of his term", Avenatti said. "It's not something I'm aware of, nor is it relevant to what I'm doing, the legal part", Giuliani said.

Stormy Daniels' attorney @MichaelAvenatti calls Giuliani's interview with @GStephanopoulos, "an absolute, unmitigated disaster for Rudy Giuliani and the president..."

Labour council leaders also have to take their share of responsibility where results don't go as we would wish. But it came in the defeat of Mr Hughes' brother Des, who was a Labour councillor on the authority since 2010.

"I'm facing a situation with the president, and all the other lawyers are, in which every lawyer in America thinks he would be a fool to testify", Giuliani told Stephanopoulos. "The President of the United States did not in any way violate the campaign finance law".

During Watergate, the court ruled that a president could be compelled to comply with a subpoena for tapes and documents.

The President also denied that his comments amounted a change in tune from the White House.

Saturday Night Live's cold open was possibly the most all-star - and delightful - political skewering they have had yet.

In spite of all of this, Giuliani is right about one important thing: It would be extraordinarily risky for Trump to speak to Mueller under oath.

For many in the region, giving up that protection is an unsettling prospect, even if peace comes to the peninsula. Trump also said then that the Southeast Asian city state of Singapore was also in the running to play host. "...

Even though he had claimed otherwise just days before, the former NY mayor insisted that Trump did not know of the $130,000 payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels "at the time" and that the hush money had nothing to do with Trump's campaign.

Giuliani said in an interview Wednesday night on Fox News that Trump reimbursed Cohen for the "so-called hush" payment that was made to Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election.

"Giuliani added later that "$130,000 between a lawyer and a client and - and a client who's worth, you know, billions, is not - George, you know, I don't like saying this, but it's not a great deal of money; $1.3 million is a great deal of money.

The revelation comes after Trump recently admitted to reimbursing Cohen for a $130,000 hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

"Back in 2011, he was - he was a celebrity", Giuliani said of Trump. "If he didn't anticipate using these funds to assist with these types of third-party payments", Schuman asked rhetorically, "then why did he still have the funds to pay Stormy Daniels if they were intended for some earlier, innocuous objective?"

Woods made his only birdie on his final hole Friday in the Wells Fargo Championship , an 18-foot putt on the par-4 ninth hole. That's no way to finish after that back-nine. "It depends on what the other guys do obviously". "I made the last putt".

Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organisation, has known since a year ago the details of how Cohen was being reimbursed, which was mainly through payments of $35,000 per month from the trust that contains the President's personal fortune, according to two persons with knowledge of the arrangement.
