SNL mocks Giuliani for Stormy Daniels revelation

SNL mocks Giuliani for Stormy Daniels revelation

Cohen then receives a call from first lady Melania Trump, who says she has a "completely hypothetical question for a friend", and asks whether the president's wife could testify against him if she wanted to.

The president has repeatedly expressed his desire to sit down with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and clear his name once and for all.

But Giuliani, who recently joined Mr. Trump's legal team, did not clarify if Mr. Trump repaid his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, or when Mr. Trump knew about Cohen's payment to an adult film actress after Mr. Trump said Friday "virtually everything said has been said incorrectly".

But Thursday on Fox News Channel, Giuliani asked viewers to imagine if Daniels had aired her allegations "in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton".

Lack of knowledge and expertise hasn't stopped Giuliani from talking to the media, of course, following a disastrous interview last week in which Giuliani appeared to implicate the president in two potential federal crimes.

"He'll get his facts straight", Trump added, though he did not specify the statements by Giuliani to which he was referring. "He's a great guy".

"The payment was made to resolve a personal and false allegation in order to protect the president's family", he said.




That suggestion that Trump broke the law, which Cummings now wants the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to investigate, was triggered by Trump's belated admission Thursday that he had reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Daniels.

Sanders also tried repeatedly to direct reporters back to the statements made by Giuliani and Trump.

Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and longtime adviser to Trump, will go one-on-one with Stephanopoulos about the Trump team's legal strategy in the Mueller investigation, and this week's revelations in the Stormy Daniels case. Certainly not, you know, the president's lawyer.

Trump has previously expressed a desire to talk to Mueller, a fellow Republican and a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director under Republican former President George W. Bush and Democratic former President Barack Obama, but said on Friday he has been advised by legal counsel not to. But, on Friday, Trump added more confusion by saying that everything said "has been said incorrectly". According to the Journal, investigators are probing whether Cohen might have committed fraud either by inflating the stated value of the assets that backed the loans, or by misrepresenting how the funds would be used.

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. But Trump sought to bolster his standing on Friday.

An earlier report from NBC News suggested that Kelly had called the president "an idiot" in private and viewed himself as the only bulwark against what he sees as chaotic decision-making by Trump.

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.
