Giuliani: Trump Should Not Testify Before A Mueller Grand Jury

  • George Conway, Husband or Wife of Top Trump Counselor, Will Take White House into Job on Twitter.

Giuliani said, regarding Trump pleading the Fifth, when Stephanopoulos asked how Trump would handle being called to testify.

"When all the facts and evidence come out, there's going to be evidence of payments to other women", Michael Avenatti said Sunday in an interview "State of the Union".

Giuliani said despite Trump's openness to sit down with special counsel Robert Mueller, he would strongly advise Trump against it.

Besides Daniels, former Playboy model Karen McDougal claims she was intimate with Trump "many dozens" of times from 2006 to 2007. Conway said Trump meant to say he did not know about the payment at the time it was made.

"How could I ever be confident of that", Giuliani said in regards to whether or not the president would invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

Giuliani pointed out that Trump has previously said he wants to testify, and that while he ultimately may end up doing so, as his lawyer, Giuliani said he has a responsibility to tell the president he would be taking a great chance. "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".

Giuliani said that Cohen is no longer Trump's personal attorney, adding that that would be a conflict.




When Trump was asked last month aboard Air Force One if he knew about the payment to Daniels, he said no. Trump also said he didn't know why Cohen had made the payment or where he got the money. "And I would also tell you that I'm happy to answer these questions, but I have limited visibility into what Mayor Giuliani is talking about".

During a 2016 campaign rally, Mr Trump disparaged staffers of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, for taking the Fifth during a congressional investigation into Mrs Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. Ben Stiller returned as the latter-unfortunately without Robert De Niro's Robert Mueller-by-way-of-Jack Byrnes-but he was just one cameo of many: there were familiar faces aplenty as Cohen and the rest of the Trump team made the phone call rounds to discuss the latest news.

He also didn't rule out that Cohen had paid for the silence of other women on behalf of Trump.

Giuliani's aggressive defense of the president in recent weeks has pleased Trump but exasperated White House aides and attorneys and left even supporters questioning his tactics.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, had told her story to multiple journalists over the years, including reporters from Slate and In Touch magazine, before signing the confidentiality agreement and a statement denying the affair. If they take that case to court, they are going to lose, ' he said.

Conway also said she did not know of any other payments made to women during the campaign that were similar to the Daniels transaction, saying "they didn't cross my desk as campaign manager". "I can prove it's rumour, but I can't prove it's fact. Yet". "It may have involved the campaign, doesn't matter, and it would've been done under any other circumstances, if there was no campaign".
