Stormy Daniels files suit claiming Trump defamed her in a tweet

Rudy Giuliani - the former New York City Mayor who recently joined President Donald Trump's legal team - absolutely unloaded on former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

A member of Donald Trump's legal team has contradicted him over a $130,000 so-called "hush agreement" paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

"If this is true then it looks like Cohen may have made an unreported loan to the campaign rather than a contribution", said Richard L. Hasen, an expert in election law at the University of California, Irvine.

On April 5, Trump denied knowing about the $130,000 payment to Daniels and told reporters aboard Air Force One that he didn't know where the hush money came from.

Cohen, who worked as a counsel to the Trump Organization for more than a decade, said in a statement to The New York Times that he paid the money to Daniels out of his own pocket.

That sketch depicted a man Daniels said assailed her in a Las Vegas parking lot soon after she had agreed in May 2011 to work with In Touch magazine on a story about her relationship with Trump.

"I love Rudy, but they better have an explanation for that", Ingraham said.

According to the Media Research Center, CNN gave air-time to attorney Michael Avenatti almost 60 times in just 60 days; cutting back on coverage normally devoted to anti-Trump crusader Adam Schiff who appeared just ten times during March and April.

Marathon Oil Corp. (MRO) Lowered to Hold at Vetr Inc
Moreover, Amundi Pioneer Asset Management has 0.06% invested in Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: MPC ) for 564,299 shares. Deroy & Devereaux Private Investment Counsel Inc bought 138,600 shares as the company's stock declined 6.39% with the market.

And while it may not seem normal for an attorney to reveal a key piece of evidence on a late night talk show, that's because it isn't.

It is not clear why Giuliani made the revelation, but it may be related to the FBI's raid on Cohen's files, which could have contained information about the $130,000 payment.

"His conduct of the Hillary Clinton investigation was a total disgrace", Giuliani said.

"I know James Comey".

After he announced his plan to drop his reelection bid, Rep. Ryan Costello said that "no matter how well you think you're doing at the job, that if the President says or does something that is off-color, your constituents want to hold you accountable for that".

Trump, in turn, has also repeatedly sounded off on Comey via social media. If this suit is allowed to go forward, which I have every faith and hope that it will, that means that Donald Trump is going to have to be called to testify or at the very least, deposed, as part of the discovery process here, as they ramp up for a trial.

Giuliani echoed that suggestion on Fox News, telling Hannity that Comey should be prosecuted.

In any other political environment, headlines about the President of the United States' alleged affair with a porn star and her bulldog attorney who is hellbent on publicizing the details would be radioactive for the President's party.
