Giuliani: Trump Should Not Testify Before A Mueller Grand Jury

HeraldScotland

"How could I ever be confident of that?" the former New York City mayor and US attorney said Sunday on ABC's "This Week".

Giuliani stated in an interview Wednesday evening on Fox Information that Trump reimbursed Cohen for the "so-called hush" cost that was made to Daniels previous to the 2016 presidential election.

Michael Avenatti, an attorney for Daniels, appeared on "This Week" after Giuliani and called the former mayor's comments "a train wreck". You are damn right he could be lying, George.

Giuliani, who was hired by Trump last month, said he's still learning the facts of the Mueller case and the details of Trump's knowledge of the payment to Daniels, who has alleged a sexual tryst with Trump in 2006.

During Watergate, the court ruled that a president could be compelled to comply with a subpoena for tapes and documents.

"Why wouldn't you say, "Go in, talk to Robert Mueller, tell the truth"?"

Giuliani said he would want such testimony to be "only for two and a half hours".

"I firmly believe there is going to be too much evidence of wrongdoing by him and those around him for him to be able to survive the balance of his term", Avenatti said. "He's the president of the United States", he said.

During a 2016 campaign rally, Trump disparaged staffers of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, for asserting their constitutional right against self-incrimination during a congressional investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server.

Indian unicorn Flipkart's board approves $15 billion deal with Walmart
Last year, there were rumours and speculations that Flipkart would buy Snapdeal, but the deal officially ended around mid-2017. According to a Bloomberg report, SoftBank is going to sell over 20 per cent stake in Flipkart at a valuation of $20 billion.

"Now this was for another goal, to protect him, to protect his family", Giuliani said on ABC News.

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's newest lawyer, once again made waves on a political talk show over the weekend, this time talking about whether Trump would cooperate in the Russian Federation investigation. Baldwin's Trump said to Stiller's Cohen over the phone.

Kate McKinnon has made a meal of skewering Attorney General Jeff Sessions and this week she steps in with a new impersonation as conniving buffoon Rudy Giuliani and nails it.

Disclosure of additional payments could complicate matters for Trump, who initially denied knowledge that money was paid to Daniels.

Giuliani stated he was undecided when Trump discovered, saying, "It might have been lately, it might have been some time again". "Not after the way they've acted", he said, referring to a list of questions that the special counsel would like to ask Trump.

"Michael's lawyers all know that that obviously is not on the table", Giuliani said.

He said that he and Jay Sekulow, another lawyer for Trump, were in agreement that the president should avoid speaking with Mueller. The payment has prompted complaints to the Justice Department and Federal Election Commission over potential violations of campaign finance law.

The payoff is the surprise appearance of Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, herself.

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