Stormy Daniels Crashes SNL, Calls For Trump's Resignation

Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organisation, has known since past year the details of how Cohen was being reimbursed, which was mainly through payments of $35,000 per month from the trust that contains the President's personal fortune, according to two persons with knowledge of the arrangement.

President Donald Trump publicly undermined his attorney Rudy Giuliani on Friday, saying the former New York City mayor had only a loose grasp of the Stormy Daniels business when he spoke about it earlier this week.

After months of claiming he knew nothing of the $1,30,000 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 told reporters aboard Air Force One a month ago "no" when questioned about his knowledge of the arrangement.

Giuliani also repeated his claim that Cohen's payment to Daniels did not violate any campaign-finance rules.

"He is a great guy", Trump said.

Giuliani said this week that the reimbursement to Cohen totalled $460,000 or $470,000, leaving it unclear what else the payments were for beyond the $130,000 that went to Clifford.

Australia optimistic about India's participation in the Day-Night Test
Manuka Oval's maiden test match will be the final worldwide match of the summer with Australia playing sixth-ranked Sri Lanka. Apart from the Test series, India will also play three ODIs and as many T20Is.

Giuliani's comments, if true, opened both Trump and Cohen to possible legal liabilities pertaining to federal laws on reporting campaign-related finances and, in Trump's case, personal finances, including outstanding obligations to Cohen.

Mr. Trump tweeted Thursday he paid Cohen through a monthly retainer, it had nothing to do with the campaign and it was no with campaign money.

Giuliani nearly seemed to be begging with Trump, through the TV screen, to listen to the advice of his lawyers.

Giuliani late on Wednesday revealed that Trump had repaid Cohen for the $130,000 the lawyer had provided to Daniels.

"This was information that the president didn't know at the time, but eventually learned", Huckabee responded. 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.

Reaching out to a slew of former guest stars who have appeared over the last two seasons, the show brought back Alec Baldwin to reprise his impression of President Donald Trump and Ben Stiller to play Trump's Lawyer Michael Cohen.

United States delays steel, aluminum tariffs until June
These countries as well as Brazil, Australia and Argentina had enjoyed temporary exemptions , which were to expire by May 1. The tariffs have already gone into effect on steel and aluminum imports from China, Russia, Japan, and some other places.

"You take a look at what I said", he added.

Trump is facing mounting legal threats from the special counsel's investigation and the Cohen-Daniels situation.

Cohen is facing a criminal investigation in NY, and FBI agents raided his home and office several weeks ago seeking records about the Daniels nondisclosure agreement.

Trump's irritation was plain Friday when reporters reminded him of his previous denial.

Kate McKinnon played Rudy Giuliani, "Trump's lawyer and worst nightmare". "I'm trying to make it like an advent calendar", says Giuliani.

Advisers, at times, refer to Hannity as the "shadow" chief of staff, rivaling White House chief of staff John F. Kelly in terms of influence. Daniels shares a call with Baldwin's Trump, who asks what it would take for her to drop everything.
