Trump Tells Reporters 'We're Not Changing Any Stories' on Stormy Daniels Payment

The president's admission followed the revelation by Rudy Giuliani - the former NY mayor and new recruit to Trump's legal team - that the president repaid the sum, meant to stop what Trump called "false and extortionist accusations" against him. You take a look at what I said.

After months of claiming he knew nothing of the $130 000 his personal lawyer paid the porn actress Stormy Daniels, who alleges an affair with Trump, the president changed tack this week, admitting he reimbursed his attorney Michael Cohen for the payment. He dug that hole even deeper in a subsequent interview, asking, "Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton?. He did his job".

"When Rudy made the statement - Rudy is great - but Rudy had just started, and he wasn't totally familiar with every - you know, with everything", Trump said. But he really has his heart into it.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, is seeking to be released from a non-disclosure deal she signed in the days before the 2016 election to keep her from talking about a 2006 sexual encounter she said she had with Trump.

Giuliani's remarks to Hannity also raised headlines because it had previously not been disclosed that Trump had repaid Cohen.

President Trump and the White House have denied that he ever had an affair with Daniels.

Asked about the matter on Friday, Trump said, without explicitly mentioning Giuliani, that "virtually everything said has been said incorrectly, and it's been said wrong, or it's been covered wrong by the press".

"Second: My references to timing were not describing my understanding of the President's knowledge, but instead, my understanding of these matters", he said in the statement. Critics have pointed to Comey's firing as evidence of obstruction of justice by Trump. "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". Mueller is probing potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation and whether the president has unlawfully sought to obstruct the investigation.

"We're not changing any stories", Trump said prior to boarding Air Force One.

Scoffing at the theory that his controversial publicity spree had caused irreversible damage to Trump's legal position, Giuliani framed his admissions as part of an elite strategy concocted between himself and the president: "I wanted to get out in front of the Special Counsel and the Southern District [of New York] because at some point they would realize this information and leak it", he said. "In that case, I had sex with Donald Trump".
