Giuliani's foray into foreign policy was deepened on Saturday, when he said that the president was "committed" to regime change in Iran, an announcement that comes at a very sensitive time, with President Trump now mulling over whether the U.S. will stay in the Iran nuclear deal. History is against Trump's new lawyers, Giuliani and Emmet Flood, since the Watergate case established the precedent that Nixon had to give up the infamous tapes pursuant to a Federal subpoena.
"The president and I have been friends for 30 years", he said.
"They've backed off that because they realize that could really, really backfire on them", Giuliani said.
After his interview with Hannity, Giuliani said his revelation about the reimbursement was made with Trump's approval. He did not rule out the possibility that Cohen had paid off other women.
He also managed to voice a confident-sounding, if wholly fictitious, rationale for Trump to stonewall special counsel Robert Mueller. He said: "I have no knowledge of that but I.I would think if it was necessary, yes".
POLITICOreports that some White House aides expect Trump to fire Giuliani if his behavior doesn't change.
Trump also expressed annoyance that Giuliani's theatrics have breathed new life into the Daniels story. Daniels says she had an affair with the president in 2006, something the White House has denied. It comes as Trump prepares for a series of high-stakes moments in the coming weeks on Iran, North Korea and the Mideast conflict - the type of delicate and potentially explosive regions where events can easily be upended by an errant remark by an emissary of the USA president. By Friday afternoon, Giuliani released a statement to clarify his remarks. But he later told NBC News that the payment had nothing to do with the campaign and was instead meant to "prevent personal embarrassment and heartache to his wife", first lady Melania Trump.
