Rudy Giuliani Warns Mueller: Don't You DARE Investigate Ivanka Trump

After a rocky introduction as President Trump's newest lawyer - highlighted by the major unforced error he committed on Sean Hannity's show Wednesday night - Rudy Giuliani appeared on This Week with George Stephanopoulos and gave another eye-opening (though less damaging) interview.

President Trump did not know about a $130,000 payoff to an adult film actress who claimed she'd had a sexual affair with him even as he paid tens of thousands of dollars to the NY attorney who made the payments, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday.

On SNL, Daniels took a call from the president's personal lawyer Michael Cohen - played by comedian Ben Stiller - at the request of Trump, represented by Alec Baldwin. We know that Ivanka Trump was on that private plane when they dictated Trump Junior's response to the reports that he had met with that Russian lawyer at Trump Tower.

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. "It's a nuisance payment".

Giuliani also put the repayment at '$460,000 or $470,000', which is far more than the $130,000 the attorney said he wired Daniels.

She said as campaign manager for the tail end of the race the issue of the payments "never crossed my desk". He told the New York Times later that Trump reimbursed Cohen a total of $460,000 or $470,000 after the campaign was over, which he said included "incidental expenses".

Daniels also mocked the allegation that her lawsuits against Trump are all an act.

These dynamics also point to the advantage that US oil exports offer for not only China but the entire Asia-Pacific region. The higher prices rise and the longer they are expected to stay high the bigger the eventual response from oil consumers.

Giuliani said on This Week that he had no knowledge of other similar payments by Cohen, but that the attorney could have made them "if it was necessary". "People don't go away for $130,000 with a meritorious claim". "Would you like to know any of patient's medical history?"

Speaking with the Post, Giuliani said he and the president's legal team "feel pretty good that we've got everything kind of straightened out and we're setting the agenda".

When asked Sunday whether Trump knew about the payment to Daniels after the campaign, Giuliani demurred. "I can just say it's rumor", Giuliani said. What matters, he said, is that the payment was not in violation of any campaign finance rules because it was made for personal reasons.

"A resignation", Ms Daniels said.

Norman Eisen, ethics chief under Trump predecessor Democrat Barack Obama, said any such payments would have constituted campaign contributions if they were meant to influence the election, even if they were also made with the "partial motive of protecting the Trump family from embarrassment".

He said that it's clear to the American people, "what's going on and it's a cover up". "But a storm's a-comin', baby", she said. Following Giuliani's earlier comments, the president sent out a series of uncharacteristically legal-sounding tweets explaining the details of the transaction.
