'Saturday Night Live' Ratings Tick Up With Host Donald Glover & Stormy Daniels

'Saturday Night Live' Ratings Tick Up With Host Donald Glover & Stormy Daniels

President Donald Trump's top personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said "we don't have to" comply with a subpoena from Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation and left open the possibility that Michael Cohen may have made payments to other women on behalf of Trump.

Guiliani was hired by Trump last month and says he's still learning the facts of the Mueller case and the details of Trump's knowledge of the payment to Daniels, who has alleged a sexual tryst with Trump in 2006.

Rudy Giuliani, the former NY mayor who recently joined the president's legal team, was first to disclose on Wednesday that Trump had reimbursed Cohen for the payment over a period of several months.

Kate McKinnon also appears during the sketch as Trump's new lawyer Rudy Giuliani and is revealed to be speaking during a Fox News interview.

Giuliani said his advice is to say "no" to being interviewed by Mueller's team. "We can assert the same privilege as other presidents have", Giuliani said.

"I know you don't believe in climate change, but a storm's a-comin', baby", she added.

Short, a former "SNL" cast member, donned a wig and round-framed glasses to become the show's version of Bornstein, who repeatedly shouts over the phone, "I guess you could say I was raped", at the top of his lungs and offers Cohen drugs (to which the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents roll their eyes in further disbelief).

"Not after the way they've acted", he said.

As the real Daniels answers the phone, the audience cheers and Trump asks Daniels what she's wearing, much to the apparent dismay of his attorney.

Asked by reporters on Air Force One earlier this month about the transaction, Trump said: "You'll have to ask Michael Cohen".

Trump also said non-disclosure agreements were "very common among celebrities and people of wealth".

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well let's - let's - the other day you also told BuzzFeed, though, that at some point after the 2016 election, Michael Cohen had complained to some people that he hadn't been paid by Donald Trump.

"They didn't cross my desk as campaign manager", she said. Mr. Trump's last disclosure, which he signed last June, does not mention any debt to Mr. Cohen.

"We don't have to", Giuliani said of Trump sitting down with Mueller, who is seeking to interview the president as he investigates purported ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

In response Trump said the former New York Mayor was new to the job and that he'll soon "get his facts straight". The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Giuliani said Trump, as president, doesn't need to comply with a subpoena to appear before a grand jury.


"The first awareness I had was during the interview last night", Sanders admitted.

Trump himself was happy with Giuliani's performance, according to a person familiar with his views but not authorized to speak about them publicly. "I mean we now know that that was an absolute lie". "And Jay [Sekulow] and I said to ourselves, 'My goodness, I hope we get the chance to tell him the risks that he's taking.' So he may testify".

She pointed to the president's tweets as proof that the payment was not made with campaign dollars and was instead a means to "save the embarrassment for his family".
