Stormy Daniels trolls Trump in star turn on Saturday Night Live

"That money was not campaign money", Giuliani said. "He's the President of the United States". "We can assert the same privileges other presidents have". Giuliani added that he would advise against a sit down with Meuller, despite Trump's openness to the idea. Daniels alleges that she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.

"How could I ever be confident of that?"

Giuliani, appearing on ABC's "This Week," said despite Trump publicly stating his willingness to meet with Mueller, he continues to urge Trump against such an interview, saying investigators in the Russian Federation probe were "trying to trap" the president.

Mr Giuliani revealed this week that Mr Trump knew about the payment to Ms Daniels made by his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and the president had paid Mr Cohen back.

"When he made certain statements, he just started yesterday", Trump said.

Appearing on a Sunday talk show, Giuliani exuded confidence that Trump would come out clean on the issue and this is unlikely to affect his presidency.

Giuliani's aggressive defence of the president in recent weeks has pleased Trump but exasperated White House aides and lawyers and supporters are questioning his tactics. After repeatedly denying knowledge of the payment, Trump tweeted on Thursday following the revelations by Giuliani that Cohen had undertaken the payout separately from the campaign "to stop the false and extortionist accusations made by her about an affair". Cummings cited comments earlier this week by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

On Sunday, Giuliani said Cohen would have paid other women as well "if it was necessary", though the former New York City mayor said he has no knowledge of such arrangements.

When Baldwin's Mr. Trump asked her "what do you need for this to all go away", Daniels answered "a resignation". While the new disclosure that Mr. Trump reimbursed Mr. Cohen from his personal funds may quell this argument, it may open more questions for the President and his legal team.

Cummings, of Maryland, asked the committee's chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to join him in asking Trump and his presidential campaign for documents related to the payment.

Cohen is no longer Trump's attorney, Giuliani said.

"He now expects the American people to believe that he doesn't really know the facts, that as to every key question you asked, he hasn't communicated with the president about it".

Any payments to help Trump's campaign could be considered illegal campaign donations and even if they weren't Cohen likely did not tell banks what the true objective of the loans were.

"I know you don't believe in climate change, but a storm's a-comin baby", Clifford says, before she and Baldwin break off to give the show's trademark introduction "live from NY it's Saturday Night Live!".
