Trump Repaid Cohen for Stormy Daniels Hush Money, Giuliani Says

  • Giuliani Says Trump Repaid His Lawyer For Stormy Daniels Payment

There may be campaign finance issues, money laundering, bank fraud.

"That money was not campaign money", Giuliani also said on "Hannity".

The White House did not respond to the comments made by Giuliani on Wednesday.

"Sorry, I'm giving you a fact now that you don't know", Giuliani told Hannity. "He didn't know the specifics of it, he knew the general arrangement". "I don't burden them with every single thing that comes along".

But Giuliani said Trump had been aware of the payment and later reimbursed Cohen. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents also raided his home and office several weeks ago seeking records about the nondisclosure agreement.

"The president repaid it", Giuliani told Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity.

The records provide evidence that Daniels was discussing an agreement with Cohen on October 10, 2016, shortly before the payment was made and just weeks before the November presidential election, CNN reported.

But others argue that if Trump or his associates paid Clifford for a reason unrelated to the election or used Trump's own money, there may have been no laws broken. "Money from the campaign, or campaign contributions, played no roll in this transaction".

The source did not know the exact timing of when the payments to Cohen began and ended.

In a phone interview with 'Fox and Friends' last week, however, Trump appeared to muddy the waters, saying that Cohen represented him in the "crazy Stormy Daniels deal".

Trump previously denied knowledge of the payment, which has since spurred a lawsuit against the President.

The new lawyer, Emmet T Flood, will replace Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer who persuaded Trump to cooperate with the special counsel for the first year of its investigation, the report said. "Now, Giuliani is trying to get the stories in sync, but this still leaves several potential violations", Noble said.

Money in Budget for Barrier Reef
The reef is a critical national asset, contributing AU$6.4 billion a year to the Australian economy. The reef is the world's largest living structure and it can even be seen from space.

However, Giuliani did not paint the full picture, and his attempt to explain the payment arrangement may have made things even less clear.

Asked if Giuliani's admission is evidence of a campaign finance violation, Avenatti simply said, "Yes".

As recently as April 6, Trump told reporters that he did not know about the payment.

"...by what we have now learned".

"Trump stood on AF1 and blatantly lied", Avenatti wrote. This should never be acceptable in our America. "Now it is time for justice to be served, and we intend to serve it".

"Basta", in Spanish and Italian, means "Enough!" He said was not reimbursed for making that payment.

Daniels claims she had sex with Trump in 2006, months after his third wife gave birth to his youngest child.

"There's been too much government misconduct", Giuliani said.

"When you see the questions and the Mueller leak, the questions are clearly not about any crime that the president may have committed".

Cohen, a former Trump Organization Inc. executive, has been Trump's personal lawyer and has claimed to be a loyal "fixer" for his longtime boss.

After Giuliani was hired, I said on All In With Chris Hayes that the #Resistance shouldn't at all be anxious about Giuliani coming on the team... because Giuliani is an old, bad lawyer who was more likely than not to make things worse. "I would have considered resigning if I ever did that". Whether he actually consulted with anybody on the Trump legal team is a matter of debate. He's entitled to that. Hillary Clinton got that and he couldn't get that.

"I don't know if he distinguished it from other things Cohen might have done for him during the campaign", Giuliani said, adding, "He trusted Michael, and Michael trusted him". "It would be good ... if God had kept you out of being the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".
