Give Rudy a break - "he'll get his facts straight" eventually
Cohen's Phones Wiretapped; White House Call Intercepted
05 May, 2018, 01:41
President Donald Trump held two brief press scrums with reporters on Friday - and he seemed to put some distance between himself and Rudy Giuliani'scomments regarding the Stormy Daniels-Michael Cohen reimbursement story.
May 4, 2018 - Despite sending tweets the previous day acknowledging that he had repaid Cohen, Trump further muddied the story line by insisting that "virtually everything" reported about the payment to Daniels was wrong.
Giuliani arrives at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.
Giuliani insisted Trump didn't know the specifics of Cohen's arrangement with Daniels until recently, telling "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that the president didn't know all the details until "maybe 10 days ago".
Cohen paid porn actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 shortly before the 2016 election for her silence about her alleged affair with Trump in 2006.
The organization Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics has filed a complaint with the Department of Justice and the Office of Government Ethics asking them to investigate whether Giuliani's disclosures show that Trump violated federal ethics laws or laws against making false statements in not reporting the payment.
"We give the very best information that we have at the time", Sanders said.

Texas Rangers vs. Boston Red Sox
The 11 are the most allowed by the Red Sox, whose 22-9 record is still the best in the majors. The over has cashed in one of those games, compared to four that've gone under in such games.
Giuliani released a statement Friday trying to clarify the confusion, saying that his "references to timing were not describing my understanding of the presidents knowledge, but instead, my understanding of these matters". Giuliani says he has not spoken to Cohen about the payment, so it's unclear how he would know the actual motivation for the initial payment.
The president explained that he paid Cohen a monthly retainer "from which he entered into, through reimbursement, a private contract between two parties, known as a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA".
On Thursday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced many questions over Rudy Giuliani's comments this week over the payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels.
The president said his treatment by the special counsel contrasted sharply with the treatment of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, who was cleared of using a secret email server and mishandling classified material as secretary of state.
Expect a pullback rather than a full mea culpa, because Trump clearly still remains enamored of Giuliani's pugilistic instincts. But, on Friday, Trump added more confusion by saying that everything said "has been said incorrectly". This sets up Colbert to say what a lot of us are probably thinking, if getting such big money is that easy... "It's a lot easier". Chief of staff John Kelly was among the aides who watched the Giuliani interview with shock on Wednesday. "I could not be more happy", Trump said. "In that case, I had sex with Donald Trump!".
An earlier report from NBC News suggested that Kelly had called the president "an idiot" in private and viewed himself as the only bulwark against chaotic decision-making and unsafe decisions by Trump.
On Thursday, Mr Trump had abruptly changed his story via Twitter, reversing his denial of the payment. In a public appearance seemingly created to underscore their relationship, Kelly and Trump walked together from the helicopter to a group of reporters waiting nearby. "Because everybody sees it now and it's a pure witch hunt". I would love to. "It's awful to be laughing and now I feel bad for Sarah Sanders", co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, while adding, "This whole thing may have finally left her at a loss for words". But the investigation "is a very unfair thing". Mueller is investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election and any potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.
