Trump Considers Sidelining Theatrical Giuliani from TV Interviews

Trump attorney and former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

Is President Trump having second thoughts about adding Rudy Giuliani to his legal team?

According to the Associated Press, the president “is growing increasingly irritated” with Giuliani’s “frequently off-message media blitz.” 

Giuliani, for example, recently revealed on national televise that Trump reimbursed his longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, for the $130,000 hush payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump is now considering removing Giuliani from the spotlight and forbidding him from doing television interviews, according to two people familiar with the president’s thinking. Among the president’s concerns is that Giuliani’s comments are elevating the media’s coverage of Daniels.

The AP wrote:

Giuliani, the newest addition to the president’s legal team, first rattled the White House last week when he sat for interviews on Fox News and seemed to contradict Trump by saying the president was aware of the $130,000 payout to Daniels from his personal attorney, Michael Cohen. He also suggested the October 2016 settlement had been made because Trump was in the stretch run of his presidential campaign.

After Trump chided Giuliani on Friday, saying the lawyer needed to “get his facts straight,” Giuliani put out a statement trying to clarify his remarks. But in weekend interviews, Giuliani appeared to dig himself a deeper hole by acknowledging that “Cohen takes care of situations like this, then gets paid for them sometimes.” He did not rule out the possibility that Cohen had paid off other women.

Trump, who has denied the affair with Daniels, was angry that Giuliani had given the impression that other women may have made similar charges of infidelity, according to the people familiar with his views.
