Giuliani says Cohen would’ve paid more women to stay silent

Rudy Giuliani suggested longtime Trump fixer Michael Cohen would’ve paid off more women to stay silent about alleged affairs with the President if he had to.

“I have no knowledge of that, but I would think if it was necessary, yes,” the former New York City mayor told ABC News’ “This Week,” when asked if Cohen paid other women not to discuss claimed trysts with the President.

Giuliani, who recently joined Trump’s legal team, said on Fox News last week that Trump reimbursed Cohen’s $130,000 hush payment to porn star Stormy Daniels to not discuss a 2006 fling.

Critics of the President and good government groups have called the payment into question, arguing it was an improper campaign expense made days before the 2016 election.

The President, his team and Giuliani later tried walking back the explosive statement, saying Cohen collected legal fees and expenses for his work on Trump’s behalf and wasn’t tied to his campaign.

The FBI raided Cohen’s office and Park Ave. residences last month, reportedly looking for files on the payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

Giuliani believes Cohen is “going to cooperate” with investigators.

“I don’t think they’ll be happy with it because he doesn’t have any incriminating evidence about the President or himself,” Giuliani said on “This Week.” “The man is an honest, honorable lawyer.”

When Trump found out about the payment has come into question, after he told reporters on Air Force One last month he didn’t wasn’t aware Cohen made it.

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the President and his former campaign manager, tried to argue Sunday that Trump meant he didn’t know about the deal when it was signed in October 2016.

“His attorney had discretion over funds and made the best call that he had,” she said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I know that the President has said he didn’t know it when it occurred.”
