Despite Rudy Giuliani's strong indication otherwise, Melania Trump did not tell her husband's attorney that she believed the president's denials that he had an affair with Stormy Daniels, according to the first lady's own spokeswoman.
Scarborough said the first lady's terse statement crushed Giuliani and signaled just how wrong he was to speak for her. I do not even suppose there is a slight suspicion that it is true. In April, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's home, office, and hotel room, and sought records related to the hush-money agreement involving Daniels as well as other women, such as Playboy model Karen McDougal, who also alleged an affair with the president and subsequently alleged that her story was buried by a Trump-friendly media outlet as a result of her arrangement.
Asked about the comments on CNN, Giuliani doubled down on Thursday, saying, "If you're involved in a sort of slimy business, (that) says something about you, says something about how far you'll go to make money".
"I respect women - handsome women and women with value - but a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation I don't respect", Giuliani said.
Giuliani's comments at the "Globes" Capital Market conference Wednesday drew a heated response Thursday from Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, who called for the president to immediately fire Giuliani.
President Trump talks about Melania Trump's 'operation'
She was treated at Walter Reed hospital on May 14 for what aides called a "benign" kidney condition and was released on May 19. On Monday, the first lady returned to the spotlight, attending a Gold Star family event that was closed to the press.
Giuliani joined the legal team representing Trump in the probe by Special Counsel Bob Mueller almost two months ago and in recent weeks has made headlines with a series of television interviews that at times contradict his client's statements, including his confirmation of a $130,000 payment to Clifford the president denied making.
Davidson says in his lawsuit that he was never arrested for extortion and the tweet was "false" and meant to hurt his reputation.
It says the pair started working together in January after becoming aware of an article by In Touch magazine concerning Trump and Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford.
"So the objective I made about her trade is, it is an trade wherein you promote seems at your physique for cash". She is also suing Cohen and Trump in California, seeking to void that nondisclosure agreement.
"I respect women- handsome women and women with value- but a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation I don't respect".
The first lady has not publicly commented about any of the sexual misconduct allegations against her husband.
