President Trump Rudy Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani, who was recently hired as one of President Donald Trump's lawyers, may have jeopardized his new boss by revealing the existence of large debts to Trump's longtime attorney Michael Cohen.

The former mayor of New York City was retained to join Trump's defense team in the ongoing Robert Mueller investigation into possible collusion with the Russians.

In an interview with NBC News, Giuliani claimed Trump wasn't aware of Stormy Daniels when he repaid $130,000 to Cohen after the consigliere made a hush money payment to the porn star in the days before the 2016 election.

Giuliani acknowledged that Trump owed Cohen $250,000 - including the $130,000 payment - but that Trump wasn't aware where the $130,000 was going.

"I don't think the president realized he paid [Cohen] back for that specific thing until we made him aware of the paperwork,” Giuliani told NBC.

Giuliani's comments led The Washington Post to file an ethics complaint with the Department of Justice and the Office of Government Ethics on Thursday.

The paper claims Giuliani's comments "left the president exposed to possible liability for campaign finance, ethics and false statements violations."

The Ethics in Government Act requires the president to disclose any financial liabilities worth more than $10,000.

Trump's financial disclosure report last summer did not include any debts to Cohen.

Knowingly failing to disclose debts over $10,000 could constitute a federal crime and result in penalties up to $50,000.

This is likely the reason why Mueller urged the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York to sign warrants to raid Cohen's office last month.

Trump routinely tweets that Mueller and the Democrats are engaged in a political witch hunt. Trump's supporters say the Democrats will stop at nothing until they find cause to impeach the duly elected president.

    LOL....These white goons tell more lies than they can count. They tell a lie to cover a lie. Then they got the nerve to get angry at Michelle Wolf the comedienne who roasted they azzes like peanuts for telling the WHOLE truth about the 2 most prolific liars in this administration, Dump and Sarah Huckabee Sanders with her big body azz.

  • Tbay _

    What lies have been proven?

  • Yardgirl

    Word!

    Are you dumb?

  • Phillybruh

    This was his biggest con, but he really should have known the law. Instead of running to spite Obama.

    Exactly. You don't know.

    The IG report is all that matters now.

    ALL of them.

    Sandra, stop.

  • Tbay _

    Such as?

  • Rayne

    I was hollering and rewinded the part when Michelle says “shirts and skins” in a grunting voice. I’ll never look at Sarah the same ?

  • Phillybruh

    Well for starters that his campaign had no contact with Russia during the campaign.

  • osmenna

    Trump and everybody that deals with him are liars.

  • hi-liter

    Best roast of all time.

  • hi-liter

    I'm tryna tell you! When Seth Meyers did the WH Correspondence dinner that time and him and Obama roasted Dump. Remember when Obama said Dump would Never be President? At that very moment, I believe almost every white person that heard that said to themselves, "Who this negga think he is to say that" ........That's how Dump became President.

  • hi-liter

    Go read.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!

  • Marlika

    Never like Guliani ?????

    When I see his mug I think of Biggie’s verse “ Mayor Giuliani ain’t trying to see a Black man turn to John Gotti” ??

  • TMW

    Guliani didn’t make trouble for Trump. Trump made trouble for Trump when he lied.

  • Phillybruh

    I think Guliani is secretly paying him back for not giving him a job in the administration.

  • Tbay _

    He said "to the best of my knowledge," which doesn't confirm anything. And before you call BS, think about all the times Obama claimed he didn't know about something (IRS scandal, Fast & Furious, Benghazi), and the public believed him. You can't prove what somebody knows or doesn't know.

  • Nikkiknows

    Good! LOL

  • Tbay _

    I have, but clearly you haven't. Because you can't answer my question. Perhaps you should start doing actual research instead of getting your talking points from Don Lemon.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Giuliani May Have Caused More Legal Problems for President Trump
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    There is a God. Good. And I hope it hurries up the process to get his ass outta the White House. I dont like Pence either but he is easily controlled and hopefully someone with common sense can puppet his dumb, no personality having ass... so we can just complete this reign of terror and elect someone new next time. They all are flawed but this takes the damn CAKE. And I said WE. WE ELECT. This is all the folks who hated Hillary so damn bad fault. Didnt vote period. I hope yall are happy.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    I bet Sarah Huckabee Sanders drinks Bacardi 151 straight from the bottle every night watching the news cycles knowing she got to go to work and try and turn this shit into sugar the next day.

    I also wonder how much she got for her soul?

  • JV

    Trump's existence is a cry for help from people who are afraid of change. In two years, the majority of youth in this country will be non-white. Diversity and inclusiveness are strengths, not weaknesses. There's nothing Trump can do about it.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Not one red cent bc it wasnt about shit to begin with.

    Her soul.

  • Phillybruh

    Obama is not President, And hasn't been for 2 years. Hillary is not President and will never be. Stop using them as excuses. And you know what they are skilled politicians which is why she is out living her best life and not in court they know the line. He thought he could move the line and our laws don't allow it and he is getting a crash course in what you do in the private sector can come back to bite when your in govt office. And if were being truly honest I don't have one ounce of sympathy for him. The way he dogged the press, the way he talked about Obama and the intel community is just giving him what he deserves.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Gag is these folks never had souls... That has was disquised... Now people can see it... These folks are demonic ... Never had a soul to begin with only a vessel

  • countrygal

    Lmao. She apparently didn’t get enough to fix that gizzard neck of hers

  • Tbay _

    I use Obama to point out the clear double standard. He told lies all day but y'all still bow down to him.
    He claimed he didn't know things that he should have known about. So either he was lying or incompetent. Skilled Politicians? Where? If by skilled you mean skilled in lying, deceiving, war mongering, deflecting, family value eliminating, non-transparency having, gun and other constitutional rights taking, then yes they are extremely skilled.

  • TMW

    Trump said he didn’t know anything about the payoff made to Stormi, but Guliani confirmed that Trump not only knew about the payoff, but paid Cohen back. It was Guliani’s attempt to try to prove there is no campaign finance violation, but he put his foot in the White House’s mouth ?

  • TMW

    Me too. I don’t think Guliani is that stupid. He knew what he was doing.

  • Phillybruh

    I don't bow down to him, but Trump lies just too be lying about dumb sh&t.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007
  • FukkFolks2018

    And now needs Rudy's help. I can rock with this. I thought it too.

  • Tbay _

    Like what? It is very difficult to prove someone is lying. Especially when the liberal Trump-hating media is providing the narrative. Like everyone else, you are caught up in your feelings and can't produce facts. Thanks for trying. Have a nice day.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Crying LOL

  • Kemi

    The most incompetent/maladroit team of legal advisors in the history of a sitting president...but he selects the best people. Lol. It’s has been a circus...everyone on his team having different versions of the blackmail.

    Trump Denies Knowing of Any Hush Money Paid to Porn Actress

  • Phillybruh

    One day you will accept you have been conned, but I guess today is not that day.

  • hi-liter

    I don't even watch Don Lemon. Stay out my face.

  • Mark mcharm

    The former New York mayor said in an interview that a payment made on the president’s behalf to Stormy Daniels prevented damaging information from emerging during the 2016 election.

  • stevetheque

    You're going to have to dig up Matlock and Perry Mason! Hahaha who in their right mind would hire Rudy?

  • stevetheque

    Got damn these are the most prolific liars in the world. I wonder if Vegas has an over/under for the next lie?

  • Mark mcharm

    The biggest lie he told and said is his dumpy tangerine azz is healthy stevie wonder can see Trump does not have many years left.

  • Tbay _

    You are twisting this story. He said he didn't THINK Trump knew about it until after the paperwork was shown to him. Think implies uncertainty which means nothing has been proven. Also, he paid Cohen back before he knew what he was paying for. Lawyers and media have a way of wording things so they don't confirm or deny anything, but steer public opinion in the direction they want to go.

  • hi-liter

    He didn't have a choice, everyone else was running from him.

  • TMW

    I read an article that says his hiring methods are like “central casting” - he picks people based on their looks for “camera facing” roles, and leaves the unattractive people to do his dirty work, like the NY doctor who told everyone he uses propecia for his hair LOL!

  • hi-liter

    Exactly. That's why they can tell effortless lies.

  • Tbay _

    If you believe that, then it makes sense why you can't provide facts for anything. You are an idiot. Why would someone run to spite someone else? Trump toyed with idea of running long before Obama was on the scene. He has interviews going back to the 80's. He couldn't stand to see the corruption and incompetency going on in the WH and decided to give it a try. And the people, also tired of corruption and incompetency, quickly voted him in because they were tired of do nothing skinnin and grinnin politicians.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker....

  • TMW

    You asked a question, I answered. I can read AND hear. Maybe you want to go replay that clip off Fox News and get off the Drudge Report site. You can then hear what he said for yourself.

    That’s why the party line from Huckabee is “we give the best information we have AT THE MOMENT”. And Trump had someone type out a response on Twitter saying that it was a “retainer” for Cohen’s legal services. Still violates campaign finance rules, no matter how they try to spin it. Money was paid to Stormi Daniels for the benefit of Trump’s campaign, period. Whether he knew or didnt know, paid or didn’t pay, he is still responsible.

  • Tbay _

    So you want a President that is easily controlled? Controlled by whom? The people or the Deep State?

  • Phillybruh

    Oh please, He hates President Obama and that is the sole reason he ran and the sole reason you idiots voted for him.

  • Rayne

    Imma watch it later on today. Sarah was HEATED!! ?

  • Phillybruh

    Only Annalese Keating and her group of students can get him out this mess....lol

  • Tbay _

    Money was paid, but not out of campaign funds...which is no crime. He's a billionaire why would he need to use campaign money. And I get my news from a wide variety of sources and then draw my own conclusions. I hope you do the same.

  • Honeybun3757

    Don't forget the Forrest Whittaker eye :-)

  • TMW

    “If any person, including a relative or friend of the candidate, gives or loans the candidate money 'for the purpose of influencing any election for federal office,' the funds are not considered personal funds of the candidate even if they are given to the candidate directly.”
    ————————-

    This is the FEC rule, provided by Kelly Ann Conway’s husband ?.

    I’m more of a fact person actually.

  • Tbay _

    Sooo the Trump supporters voted for him because they hate Obama? Do you review your comments before typing them? That's as bad as when Hillary said women vote for who their husbands vote for, as if they don't have a brain. What about not wanting another 4 years of no progress, lying, illegals flooding the country, war mongering. Hillary would have surely steered us into war. She could barely stand up. She lost despite the media protecting her and being overwhelming in her favor. And this was her 2nd loss. So the people clearly not feeling her. I know many black people people that voted for Obama twice and were discouraged by his lack of action so they voted for Trump.

  • GAPeach

    That can't be right, he has Sarah Huckabee-Sanders facing a camera on a daily basis. Sometimes she looks like she just woke up from a nap when she heads to that podium.

  • Phillybruh

    Review what, its what he did for 8 years, then ran on that hate.

  • TMW

    Nobody else will take that job. And she didn’t look that bad when she first started. She is WEARING the stress and strain of that job.

  • Tbay _

    No one gave Trump money directly. This is another witch hunt just like the Russia collusion story that did nothing but prove the FBI is corrupt. Let's see if this results in impeachment. I'm going to guess it won't.

  • Phillybruh

    I think her father saw the Pee Pee Tape.

  • TMW

    Ok. Cohen is singing like a bird. So is Guliani. Trump’s own people are making Mueller’s case for him. And it’s not about impeachment - he won’t get impeached as long as Republicans control the Senate and House. But he will get charged with obstruction of justice and now FEC violations. Just like Nixon, Trump will resign. He can’t pardon himself.

    What a conceited narcissistic person!!

    Speaking of telling lies,the news reported this morning that Trump has told over 3,000 since his presidency.

  • Kemi

    Thanks for the link

  • Alextra Ballard

    Giuliani ain cause nut'n....this is all trumps doing. One thing about lies, you have to continue to cover them up with other lies. Giuliani just unearthed the truth. If former president Obama had been accused of just half of what they are accusing Trump of, impeachment proceedings would've already been in session. Trump is getting what he deserves...remember he was the rang leader when it came to Mr. Obama's birth certificate. He couldn't rest until Obama produced his bc.
    Ol trump sewd his seeds now it times to reap the benefits.
