By The Daily Wire. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now a member of President Donald Trump’s legal team, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday that Trump reimbursed his personal attorney Michael Cohen $130,000 for his payment to Stormy Daniels.
“That was money that was paid by his lawyer,” Giuliani told Hannity. “The president reimbursed it over several months.”

“That money was not campaign money,” Giuliani continued. “Sorry — I’m giving you a fact that you don’t know. It’s not campaign money — no campaign finance violation.” (Read more from “Watch: Rudy Giuliani Reveals Trump Paid Cohen $130k for Stormy Daniels in Bombshell Interview” HERE)
Giuliani Says Trump Paid $130g to Cohen for ‘Expenses’ over Several Months
By Fox News. . .On “Hannity,” Giuliani said Trump repaid Cohen “over several months” by putting him on a “retainer of $35,000 when he was doing no work for the president.”
“I said, ‘That’s how he’s repaying it, with a little profit and a little margin for paying taxes,'” said Giuliani, who added that Trump “didn’t know about the specifics of [the payment], as far as I know, but he did know about the general arrangement that Michael would take care of things like this. Like I take care of things like this for my clients. I don’t burden them with every single thing that comes along.”
Last month, Trump told reporters on Air Force One that he had no knowledge about the payment Cohen made to Daniels. When asked why Cohen sent Daniels the money, the president answered: “You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen – Michael’s my attorney.”
Days later, federal agents raided Cohen’s home, office and hotel room in New York City.
After Giuliani’s appearance on “Hannity,” sources familiar with the matter told Fox News that Trump did in fact repay Cohen the $130,000 Cohen paid to Daniels, over several months. (Read more from “Giuliani Says Trump Paid $130g to Cohen for ‘Expenses’ over Several Months” HERE)
