Giuliani: Trump could plead the 5th in the Russian Federation investigation

Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to the president, said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump on Air Force One meant that he didn't know about the payment at the time it was made, not at the time the question was asked. Yes", Giuliani said. "I'm comfortable with that.

Giuliani told Fox News host and Trump supporter Sean Hannity that the money was funneled through a law firm "and the president repaid it". "Gets paid for them sometimes, gets reimbursed in another way".

"Now this was for another objective, to protect [Trump], to protect his family". "It may have involved the campaign".

While discussing whether Trump would testify in the Russian Federation probe, Giuliani claimed the special counsel's team was behind a New York Times report that featured 49 questions Mueller wants to ask the president. "We are going to walk ourselves into a trap like that", Giuliani told ABC.

Rudy Giuliani, an attorney for President Donald Trump, applauds at the Iran Freedom Convention for Human Rights and democracy at the Grand Hyatt on Saturday in Washington.

Mueller reportedly warned Trump's lawyers in March that he had the power to issue a subpoena if the White House refused his request to have a sit-down interview with the president. "I can't believe that that actually just happened".

Attorney Alan Dershowitz echoed Schiff's observation, telling NBC's "Meet the Press" that Trump's lawyers are playing into Mueller's hands.

Trump said he was interested in testifying on multiple occasions, including in January when he said, "I'm looking forward to it". One focus of the raid was to seek records on the deal with Daniels and, according to a source familiar with the matter, on another agreement set up between McDougal and a company that reportedly paid her amid the 2016 presidential campaign cycle to keep her account from publication.

Giuliani said he would want such testimony to be "only for two and a half hours".

"He was saying he didn't know about it when it was made", she said, adding that it was a "fast-moving exchange" with the reporters on Air Force One. "I would not characterize it that way, the president himself characterized it as not a campaign expenditure", Conway said.

Giuliani, a former New York City mayor and USA attorney, joined Trump's legal team last month.

Amid all the chaos, Cohen receives a phone call from "Ivanka and Jared" (Johansson and Fallon), who are demanding to know why Giuliani called Kushner "disposable" on national television (something that Giuliani did in fact do, in a freaky, freewheeling interview last week).

Attorney Michael Avenatti represents Daniels, a porn star who claims she had an affair with Trump years ago.

"He made payments for the President, he conducted business for the President", Giuliani said.

"Women have come forward and contacted our office.as I've stated in the past. They have knives and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital", he said.

The "SNL" sketch also featured Ben Stiller as Cohen, Kate McKinnon as Giuliani, Leslie Jones as Omarosa Manigault Newman, Cecily Strong as Melania Trump, Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump, Jimmy Kimmel as Jared Kushner and Martin Short as Mr. Trump's former personal physician, Harold Bornstein.
