Giuliani Links Michael Cohen’s Stormy Daniels Payoff to 2016 Election

Rudy Giuliani on Thursday morning contradicted his own assertion that Michael Cohen’s payment to Stormy Daniels in October 2016 was not a campaign contribution. During an interview on Fox & Friends, Giuliani reiterated that Donald Trump reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000 paid to Daniels in exchange for her silence about an alleged affair. Then Giuliani, who joined Trump’s legal team this week, said: “Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016 in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton. Cohen didn’t even ask. Cohen made it go away. He didn’t even ask.”
