He's following the Trump playbook: Confuse, distract, provoke and flood the zone with factoids and truthiness until nobody can be sure what's real and what's not.
Trump, last Friday, noted that Giuliani was still new to the legal team and needed "to get his facts straight".
"Can I just say this about Rudy?" After his disastrous media blitzkrieg last week, Giuliani appeared on ABC's This Week and spouted a bunch of barely decipherable nonsense about Trump's payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, Kimmel said, and he knew it was gibberish because he went through it on a chalkboard.
That made Trump's prior claim of total ignorance about the payment a bald-faced lie.
Giuliani released a statement Friday saying there was "no campaign violation" because the payment was not made for a campaign objective but to protect Trump's family. "Giuliani told everyone Trump had reimbursed Cohen for that payment and Trump knew what it was for". But he later told NBC News that the payment had nothing to do with the campaign and was instead meant to "prevent personal embarrassment and heartache to his wife", first lady Melania Trump.
Australia High Court rules against senator as citizenship crisis widens
The decision could have serious ramifications on another four dual-citizen MPs who were relying on the same defence as Gallagher. Josh Wilson, who won the safe Labor seat of Fremantle in 2016, has also resigned because of the High Court's Gallagher decision.
Why would Trump pay so much in hush money to squelch disclosure of an alleged affair?
Trump, who has denied the affair with Daniels, was angry that Giuliani had given the impression that other women may have made similar charges of infidelity, according to the people familiar with his views. "Speaking of natural disasters, Rudy Giuliani", he said. "Once they decide what they want those facts to be, they'll let you know", Colbert said.
Of course his attorneys prefer that, because they know that when Trump starts talking, he starts lying.
But Giuliani, making the rounds of the Sunday news shows, suggested that Cohen paid off more women during the campaign, saying "I have no knowledge of that but I would think, if it was necessary, yes".
It's never ideal to admit to a possible violation of the law, even a technical one.
Not so sweet: Tanker truck crash spills liquid chocolate onto highway
A local fire fighter told reporters it will take several hours to clear, as "once it hardens, chocolate is worse than snow". The auto lurched, the tank's contents spilled out onto the road, and the driver was hospitalized with a broken arm.
However, these were not the only statements made by the new appointee.
He also said that Trump is still hopeful that he and special counsel Robert Mueller can agree to a face-to-face meeting. Giuliani knows full well that the Constitution neither states nor implies that "a president can not be distracted by a criminal investigation". Maybe they can make sense of it all.
Giuliani is obfuscating, not clarifying.
Congress poses the only serious threat to Trump, in the form of impeachment.
