Rudy Giuliani put out a three-point clarification Friday regarding comments he made in bombshell interviews this week about the hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels and more, just hours after President Trump said the latest addition to his legal team would “get his facts straight.”
‘America’s mayor’ Rudy Giuliani issued a three-point “clarification” Friday regarding his comments on James Comey’s firing and the President’s alleged payments to adult actress Stormy Daniels; saying the President was trying to “resolve a personal and false allegation.”
“First: There is no campaign violation. The payment was made to resolve a personal and false allegation in order to protect the President’s family. It would have been done in any event, whether he was a candidate or not,” said Giuliani.
“Second: My references to timing were not describing my understanding of the President’s knowledge, but instead, my understanding of these matters,” he added.
“It is undisputed that the President’s dismissal of former Director Comey—an inferior executive officer—was clearly in his Article II power,” Giuliani said. “Recent revelations about former Director Comey further confirm the wisdom of the President’s decision, which was plainly in the best interests of our nation.”
