Giuliani dismisses his own statements as 'rumour' he defends Trump

The former NY mayor and onetime prosecutor was asked on ABC's "This Week" whether Trump would comply with a subpoena if Mueller were to issue one.

Speaking to ABC's This Week host George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, Giuliani said that the president has no obligation to cooperate with special counsel Robert Meuller's probe.

Avenatti knocked Giuliani's explanation that, as a recent addition to Trump's legal team, he is still "getting up to speed" on the details of the Cohen case and the arrangement with Daniels.

"I have no knowledge of that, but I would think if it was necessary, yes", Mr Giuliani said. "I think it is obvious.to the American people that this is a coverup, that they are making it up as they go along, they don't know what to say because they've lost track of the truth".

If Trump meant to reimburse Cohen for such payments, they should have been reported by the president on a 2017 financial disclosure form that required him to state his financial liabilities, Eisen said.

During a 2016 campaign rally, Trump disparaged staffers of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, for taking the Fifth during a congressional investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state. "That is no under oath, only a Q&A; we get the questions in advance, and they write the report two weeks before", Giuliani told ABC.

In an ABC News appearance during which he was acting in his capacity as the president's personal attorney, Giuliani said he can not be "confident" that Trump will not seize up on his right not to answer questions on the constitutionally-protected grounds that he has a right not to incriminate himself.

'I would love to speak, but I have to find that we're going to be treated fairly, ' Trump said at the White House.

When asked on Sunday whether Trump knew about the payment to Daniels after the campaign, Giuliani demurred.

Stormy was joined by Ben Stiller, Alec Baldwin, Scarlett Johansson and Jimmy Fallon in the parody of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's infamous phone calls. Asked about Trump's statement on Air Force One that he did not know where Cohen got the money to pay Daniels, Conway referred to Trump's tweets Thursday. Trump said he would just listen in as they spoke, and Cohen asked Daniels if she was alone. "I can prove it's rumour, but I can't prove it's fact. Yet".

She added that when she was Trump's campaign manager, she "was not made aware" of the Daniels matter either.

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. "It may have involved the campaign". Afterwards, there were reports that Giuliani was with the president this morning on his golf course.
