‘America’s mayor’ Rudy Giuliani issued a three-point “clarification” Friday regarding his comments on James Comey’s firing and the President’s alleged payments to adult actress Stormy Daniels; saying the President was trying to “resolve a personal and false allegation.”
“First: There is no campaign violation. The payment was made to resolve a personal and false allegation in order to protect the President’s family. It would have been done in any event, whether he was a candidate or not,” said Giuliani.
“Second: My references to timing were not describing my understanding of the President’s knowledge, but instead, my understanding of these matters,” he added.
“It is undisputed that the President’s dismissal of former Director Comey—an inferior executive officer—was clearly in his Article II power,” Giuliani said. “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.”

RUDY ON HANNITY: The President Violated ‘ZERO’ Campaign Finance Laws
‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani stopped by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on Robert Mueller’s months-long witch hunt, saying the President violated “zero” campaign finance laws during the 2016 race for the White House.
Giuliani confirmed that the President “reimbursed” Attorney Michael Cohen for the $130,000 paid to adult actress Stormy Daniels ahead of the presidential election; saying “Michael would take care of things like this. Like I take care of things like this for my clients. I don’t burden them with every single thing that comes along.”
“That money was not campaign money,” said Giuliani. “It’s not campaign money. No campaign finance violation.”
The former Mayor of New York City went on to say that the President learned of the payment after the case went public; adding Trump was unaware of the “specifics” of the arrangement.

RUDY RETURNS: Giuliani VOWS to End Mueller Probe Within 'Weeks'

“I’m going to join the legal team to try to bring this to a resolution,” Giuliani told the New York Post Friday. “The country deserves it. I’ve got great admiration for President Trump.”
“I’ve had a long relationship with Bob Mueller. I have great respect for him. He’s done a good job,” he added. “I don’t know yet what’s outstanding. But I don’t think it’s going to take more than a week or two to get a resolution. They’re almost there.”
Giuliani is a longtime friend and staunch supporter of President Trump; delivering a fiery speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
“What I did for New York City, Donald Trump will do for America,” he said. “Every time New York City suffered a tragedy, Donald Trump was there to help.”
