Trump Considers Sidelining Theatrical Giuliani from TV Interviews

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.

Giuliani: Trump May Take Fifth Or Refuse to Testify Before Mueller

President Trump’s new attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said Sunday he couldn’t rule out that Trump will assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the Russia investigation.

Giuliani also could say whether Trump’s longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, made hush parents to other women on behalf of the president.

Giuliani’s bewildering statements came on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, choosing Trump’s preferred approach to taking the president’s arguments to the media. 

The former New York mayor and longtime supporter of the president said he would strong advice Trump against sitting down with special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I’m going to walk him into a prosecution for perjury like Martha Stewart?” Giuliani asked.

He said he couldn’t guarantee that Trump would assert his constitutional right to answer questions that could incriminate him.

“I’m going to walk him into a prosecution for perjury like Martha Stewart?”

If Trump is subpoenaed, Giuliani said the president may not comply, which could lead to a Supreme Court decision on whether presidents could be compelled to speak under oath.

President Trump has mulled replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions with longtime supporter Rudy Giuliani, Axios reported

But on Monday, the former New York City mayor told CNN the report was untrue and defended Sessions’ “right decision under the rules of the Justice Department” to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.

Numerous outlets reported this week that Trump is hoping Sessions will resign, in no small part because he recused himself from the Russia investigation.

Trump told the New York Times last week, “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else.”

If Donald Trump is elected president, he plans to name Rudy Giuliani the secretary of Homeland Security.

The New York Daily News reports that a secret deal has been struck by Trump to make Giuliani the head of Homeland Security. 

“It’s my understanding that the two have talked directly (and) I know there have been serious talks on both sides,” the Daily New was told. “I’m told it’s a done deal, but until it’s on paper, I don’t think anyone is counting on anything. Trump is already cutting deals as he moves to solidify his position in the party.”

Giuliani said he would support Trump as president.

“He’s my friend, and I think of the candidates, of the choices that I have, he’s the best choice for President,” Giuliani told The New York Times before last month’s New York primary.
