On Wednesday, Rudy Giuliani, who recently joined Trump’s legal team, admitted that Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels.
“Funneled through a law firm, and the president repaid it,” Giuliani said.
“He didn’t know about the specifics of it as far as I know, but he did know about the general arrangement, that Michael would take care of things like this,” he said.
In an apparent effort to fix the mistake Giuliani just made, Hannity returned to the payment topic later in the interview.

“That was money that was paid by his lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds or whatever funds, it doesn’t matter. The president reimbursed that over a period of several months,” Giuliani said.
Hannity then responded by insisting that he remembered Cohen making the payment without Trump’s knowledge.
“The fact is, just trust me, they’re going to come up with no violation there,” he said. “The payment was perfectly legal, all documented.”
Despite what Giuliani says, if the President knew about the payment, it could spell big legal trouble.
Cohen has decided to assert his Fifth Amendment right and not respond to the legal inquiries.
