A timeline of key moments in Trump-Stormy Daniels saga

A timeline of key moments in Trump-Stormy Daniels saga”

In an interview with NBC News, the newest addition to Trump's legal team explained that when the president denied knowing anything about Michael Cohen's $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels-"no", he answered last month when a reporter asked whether he was aware the cash had changed hands-it was because he'd only recently learned that the funds he sent to Cohen were meant to reimburse him for the hush money.

Damage control No. 2 happened Friday when Trump walked over to reporters on the way out the door of the White House and said Giuliani didn't know what the heck he was talking about.

Giuliani insisted Trump didn't know the specifics of Cohen's arrangement with Daniels until recently, telling "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that the president didn't know all the details until "maybe 10 days ago".

In an effort to apparently "get his facts straight", Giuliani released a statement addressing various legal issues that Trump is facing. Daniels said she and her daughter were approached in a Las Vegas parking lot by a man who said something along the lines of: "Oh it's a attractive little girl, would be a shame if something happened to her mom".

He added: "My references to timing were not describing my understanding of the president's knowledge, but instead, my understanding of these matters". Edwards was accused of campaign finance violations related to payments made to his mistress to remain silent about their affair during his 2008 campaign.

In the statement, he emphasized again that "there is no campaign violation" from the payment to buy Daniels' silence, made in secret during the final days of the 2016 campaign.

Calling Giuliani a "great guy", Trump nonetheless insisted his attorney wasn't fully up to speed when he told an interviewer that Trump had reimbursed another lawyer for hush money paid to Daniels, an adult film actress who claims she had sex with Trump in 2006. "I think you're going to be seeing very good things".

Senior White House staffer were caught off guard Wednesday by Giuliani's first appearance on Fox News when he disclosed that Trump had repaid Daniels.

PM sells Trans Mountain pipeline as Amazon announces expansion in Vancouver
Amazon shares ended the US Monday trading session in the red as Jeff Bezos' firm announced plans to expand its Vancouver tech hub. Seattle-based Amazon opened its first software development site in Vancouver in 2011 and now has more than 1,000 employees.

On Friday, Trump said he was willing to be interviewed by Mueller, but only if he gets fair treatment. Cohen has said neither Trump's business nor the Trump campaign reimbursed after paying her. "But there has been a lot of misinformation really, people wanting to say- and I say, you know what, learn before you speak, it's a lot easier". "It's a lot easier". "Nothing I want to do more, because we did nothing wrong". "In that case, I had sex with Donald Trump!".

NBC News on Thursday reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has for months been monitoring the list of Cohen's calls, although not necessarily listening in, as the network first reported. In a public appearance seemingly created to underscore their relationship, Kelly and Trump walked together from the helicopter to a group of reporters waiting nearby.

FBI agents raided Cohen's New York City office, home and hotel room, acting on a warrant from federal prosecutors in New York's Southern District.

The most consistent thing in the White House's message is that the Daniels story is "that kind of crap", as Trump put it Friday morning, and there are multiple "witch hunts" out to get him.

The president also addressed the ongoing special counsel investigation, led by Robert Mueller, and said he would be happy to sit down and answer Muellers questions.

He said the probe by Mueller is a "pure witch hunt" and that a group of "angry Democrats" are on Mueller's team. I would love to.

"Donald Trump may wear impeachment as a badge of honour", he said.
