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..."

Celtics exercising caution with Jaylen Brown
At some point, we have to give them credit, right? It set up a thrilling back-and-fourth final frame that saw four lead changes. The Celtics trailed by as much as 22 points, 48-26, with 6:20 left to play in the first half before rallying.

"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.

Simmons would make the highlight reel with a behind-the-back pass to a charging Embiid for a thunderous dunk over Aron Baynes . In the waning moments of Saturday's overtime, there was a pair of miscues in the final 46 seconds, too. "He's got guts.

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?"

A morning rally outside of the Capitol included more than 100 people who held signs in opposition to the legislation. Ectopic pregnancies are not necessarily an immediate threat to the mother, but they will be later in the pregnancy.

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.
