Stormy Daniels Plays Herself in Star-Studded 'SNL' Cold Open

Co-host Michael Che also went after Giuliani for claiming that Trump only recently learned that he was reimbursing Cohen for the payment in installments.

But Giuliani's revelations clearly nullified Trump's charge of "false and extortionist accusations" brought against him.

The president has repeatedly expressed his desire to sit down with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and clear his name once and for all.

Giuliani, hired recently as Trump's lead attorney for the investigation into Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 presidential election, said in an explosive Wednesday interview with Fox's Sean Hannity that the president had reimbursed his longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, for the $130,000 hush payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels shortly before the election.

Giuliani leaned heavily on his creditability as a former prosecutor in the Southern District of New York-especially when it came to bashing Comey.

Hours later, Giuliani issued a statement in which he tried to back away from his previous suggestion that the $130,000 payment was made because Trump was in the stretch run of the 2016 campaign.

The sketch was essentially a guessing game of "who's gonna come on next?" which started with Cohen trying to call Rudy Giuliani who Trump says has the "greatest legal mind since My Cousin Vinny". Trump also tweeted that he authorized such a payment.

Shore had publicly identified Mooney as a person of interest in the slayings during a noon news conference on May 2. He had been taken to Episcopal Hospital in Philadelphia after suffering an apparent drug overdose around 9:30 p.m.

Mr Trump on Friday said his new lawyer had made a mistake because he was new to the job and would "get his facts straight" before adding that he was "not changing any stories" with regard to Ms Daniels.

Trump then acknowledged the payments on Thursday on Twitter while denying Daniels' underlying allegation about sexual contact. Learn before you speak.

Giuliani in an appearance on Fox News on Wednesday had said Trump fired James Comey as FBI director past year because Comey declined to state publicly that Trump was not at the time a target of the agency's investigation into Russia's role in the election. The two men continued to confer privately about how to handle the Daniels matter, without consulting with the White House communications shop or the White House counsel's office.

Last month, the president told reporters he was unaware of the payment and did not know where Cohen had gotten the money-let alone have knowledge of the $774,000 lines of credit. At one point he claims that Trump "didn't know the specifics" of the Daniels payment, perhaps giving Trump a bit of cover. "They don't know what to say because they've lost track of the truth", he added. Times reporters are probably investigating that at this very moment, although only Cohen may know the full truth. Giuliani has warned Trump that he fears Cohen, the president's longtime personal attorney, will "flip", bending in the face of a potential prison sentence, and he has urged Trump to cut off communications with him, according to a person close to Giuliani.

A Times report this week documented the "cold truce" between the two men as Trump has soured on Kelly's efforts to impose order on the White House.

The first call - a wrong number - went to Trump's former physician Dr. Harold Bornstein, played by Martin Short.
