Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now a member of President Donald Trump’s legal team, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday that Trump reimbursed his personal attorney Michael Cohen $130,000 for his payment to Stormy Daniels.
“That was money that was paid by his lawyer,” Giuliani told Hannity. “The president reimbursed it over several months.”
“That money was not campaign money,” Giuliani continued. “Sorry — I’m giving you a fact that you don’t know. It’s not campaign money — no campaign finance violation.”
“They funneled through a law firm and the president repaid it,” Giuliani explained.
Giuliani also touched on the possibility of Trump sitting down with special counsel Robert Mueller for a potential interview, saying: “Right now, a lot of things point in the direction of they’ve made up their mind that Comey’s telling the truth, and not the president.”
“I’d like to get one not under oath — I’d want it videotaped, not videotaped but audiotapes,” Giuliani continued. “I want to make sure they don’t misrepresent his answers. But this is an outrageous miscarriage of justice.”
Giuliani slammed former FBI Director James Comey, calling him a “disgraceful liar” and saying that he should be prosecuted “for leaking confidential FBI information.”
“I know James Comey and I know the president. Sorry Jim, you’re a liar,” Giuliani said. “A disgraceful liar, every FBI agent in America has his head down because of you.”
“Comey should be prosecuted for leaking confidential FBI information when he leaked his report intended to develop a special prosecutor for the president of the United States . I have never, ever, you know me, Sean, you knew me when I was U.S. attorney, a lot of allegations, never leaked a damn thing,” Giuliani continued.
“I have an open mind about Bob. I’ve known about Comey, I’ve closed my mind about Comey, I know Comey much better, and I have the indignity of unfortunately of having hired him for his first big job. And I’m embarrassed that I hired him,” Giuliani concluded.
