Trump attorney not ruling out his taking the 5th Amendment

Trump attorney not ruling out his taking the 5th Amendment

The former New York City mayor's tendency to put his foot in his mouth prompted some Twitter users to question his "lawyering" skills.

Speaking to ABC's This Week host George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, Giuliani said that the president has no obligation to cooperate with special counsel Robert Meuller's probe.

Mr Giuliani also suggested that the president wouldn't necessarily comply with a subpoena from Mueller, whose investigation has been repeatedly labeled a "witch hunt" by the president.

"I have no knowledge of that, but I would think if it was necessary, yes", Giuliani said. "I'm going to walk him into a prosecution for perjury like Martha Stewart?"

"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".

During a 2016 campaign rally, Trump disparaged staffers of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, for taking the Fifth during a congressional investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state. "I imply, what we witnessed by Rudy Giuliani could also be one of many worst TV appearances by any legal professional on behalf of a shopper in trendy instances".

President Donald Trump's new attorney, Rudy Giuliani, won't rule out the possibility that the president would assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the swirling Russian Federation investigation. The president had said he did not know about Cohen's payment or where Cohen got the money.

Besides Daniels, former Playboy model Karen McDougal claims she was intimate with Trump "many dozens" of times from 2006 to 2007.

Stormy was joined by Ben Stiller, Alec Baldwin, Scarlett Johansson and Jimmy Fallon in the parody of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's infamous phone calls. After Giuliani revealed for the first time on Wednesday that Trump had reimbursed Cohen the $130,000, Trump said on Twitter that Cohen was paid via retainer. "The reality is those are not facts that worry me as a lawyer".

Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney, said Sunday on "This Week" that he thinks it's "obvious.to the American people that this is a cover-up, that they are making it up as they go along".

The attorney representing Daniels in the lawsuit against Cohen over the legality of the hush agreement and a separate defamation lawsuit against Trump argued otherwise.

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".

Norman Eisen, ethics chief under Trump's predecessor, Democrat Barack Obama, said any such payments would have constituted campaign contributions if they were meant to influence the election, even if they were also made with the "partial motive of protecting the Trump family from embarrassment". "It may have involved the campaign".
