White House: Giuliani adds value to Trump team

Posted May 11, 2018

Giuliani was the source of much confusion last week, beginning with a Wednesday night appearance on Fox News' Hannity.

Trump has told a confidant that instead of being completely banned, Giuliani should be "benched" if he can not improve his performance in interviews.

"My takeaway is that he's in good spirits, that he's beyond human in the way he can handle these things", Giuliani said. However, that was contradicted on Friday by Trump, who told reporters at Andrews Air Force Base that Giuliani was still new to the legal team and was still getting up to speed with the facts.

Giuliani said there was no truth to the idea that unless he is more careful on TV, the president will oust him.

He also said "No, I don't know" when asked if he knew where the money came from.

"The president brought Rudy Giuliani, his longtime friend, on because he thought he was going to be able to help bring this Russian Federation investigation to an end much more quickly with more aggressive approach, something that matched the way that the president wanted to go after this", she said.

Earlier Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the President "certainly feels that he is an added member - added value member - to his outside special counsel".

In the last few days, Trump has acknowledged that he reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000 he paid to Daniels. Giuliani's aggressive defense of the president in recent weeks has pleased Trump, but exasperated White House aides and attorneys.

Special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly rejected an offer from President Trump's legal team to answer written questions.

Giuliani also suggested that he wants to wait until after Trump returns from a summit with North Korea on denuclearization to prepare the President for an interview with Mueller. Daniels says she had an affair with the president in 2006, something the White House has denied. So Giuliani pirouetted once more and said the payment was made "to resolve a personal and false allegation" and "would have been done in any event, whether (Trump) was a candidate or not".
