Giuliani does not rule out possibility there were payments to other women

Trump claims legal aide needs to 'get his facts straight' about hush money paid to porn actress Stormy Daniels Stormy Daniels Plays Herself in Star-Studded 'SNL' Cold Open

Later on the same program, Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti laid into Giuliani for failing to clarify what Trump knew, and when, about the payments to Daniels, saying with astonishment that what just happened was "an absolute, unmitigated disaster for Rudy Giuliani and the president". "If he didn't anticipate using these funds to assist with these types of third-party payments", Schuman asked rhetorically, "then why did he still have the funds to pay Stormy Daniels if they were intended for some earlier, innocuous goal?"

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

Giuliani said, "I don't know, maybe she didn't demand it earlier". Since Trump took office, SNL hasn't been able to come up with comic situations that are any more overblown than what the president and his administration has done in real life.

"I have no knowledge of that, but I would think if it was necessary, yes", Giuliani replied.

Baldwin's Trump then said to call another one of his lawyers, Rudy Giuliani, played by Kate McKinnon, saying that he has "the sharpest mind since 'My Cousin Vinny'".

"We're not changing any story", he told reporters as he board Air Force One.

Speaking with the Post, Giuliani said he and the president's legal team "feel pretty good that we've got everything kind of straightened out and we're setting the agenda".

"Not after the way they've acted", he said, referring to a list of questions that the special counsel would like to ask Trump. He also shot down talk that Trump would issue a presidential pardon should Cohen, now the subject of a federal probe into his dealings on behalf of Trump, be convicted of any crimes.




Giuliani, who has contradicted the president on when he learned of the payment, has said he's still learning the facts of the case. "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".

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.

Stormy Daniels has made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live in a sketch alongside Ben Stiller and Alec Baldwin. The $130,000 doesn't mean anything.

"This isn't what I want to be known for", Daniels said on "The View" last month.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006. Giuliani is appearing on ABC's "This Week". "If they go after her, the whole country will turn on them".

"This guy's all over the map over the last 72 hours on some very simple facts that should be very straightforward", Avenatti said. "I'm going to walk him into a prosecution for perjury like Martha Stewart?"

Legal experts have said Giuliani's remarks in recent days may have exposed Trump to potential legal risks and could have compromised his attorney-client privilege with the president.
