  • Questions raised by Giuliani comments on Stormy payment

One of President Donald Trump's attorneys in the Russian Federation probe, Rudy Giuliani, left open the possibility that Michael Cohen might have doled out payments like the one he made to adult film star Stormy Daniels to other women.

She also defended Trump's statement on Air Force One in April that he was unaware of a payment by his attorney Michael Cohen to Daniels for her discretion about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump by saying the President was unaware of the arrangement at the time it occurred.

Meanwhile, when asked if Cohen made any payments to other women on behalf of the president besides adult film star Stormy Daniels, Giuliani said, "I have no knowledge of that, but I would think if it was necessary, yes".

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says, "How could I ever be confident of that". Did the President know about the $130,000 payment?

Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, appearing right after Giuliani, told Stephanopoulos, "there is no question this had everything to do with the campaign".

He called it "a nuisance payment" rather than "a settlement".

"We all feel pretty good that we've got everything kind of straightened out and we're setting the agenda", Giuliani told WaPo after spending time with Trump at his golf club post-interview on Sunday.

He also said, "I never thought $130,000 was a real payment". The most pointed line of the sketch was uttered by Daniels, who, when asked what she wanted, didn't say money but rather "a resignation". Cohen faces a criminal investigation in NY, where FBI agents raided his home and office several weeks ago seeking records about the Daniels nondisclosure agreement and other matters.

Cohen, Trump's longtime personal lawyer, faces a criminal investigation in part over the payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. "This guy is all over the map over the last 72 hours on some very simple facts that should be very straightforward".

"I'm not in prison", said Stiller's Cohen, who called Baldwin's Trump from a pay phone. 'What are you wearing?' Trump blurts out before cutting Cohen out of the call and asking what it would take for Daniels to drop her case against him.

During the interview, Giuliani said that people do not go away with Dollars 130,000 for a meritorious claim. What matters, he said, is that the payment was not in violation of any campaign finance rules because it was made for personal reasons.

"If we came to conclusion they have already made up their mind and Comey is telling the truth - that is a joke, Comey hasn't told the truth in years - then we would just be leading him into the lion's den", Giuliani said in an interview on Wednesday.

On Friday, Mr Giuliani then backed away from his previous suggestion that the October 27 settlement had been made because Mr Trump was in a critical phase of his campaign. "But a storm's a-comin', baby", she said.

"I never thought $130,000 - I know this sounds amusing to people there at home", he said.

He added: "I think it is obvious to the American people that this is a cover-up; that they are making it up as they go along".
