Giuliani talks about Trump taking the 5th, not complying with subpoena, and Trump's "other women"

Trump could take the 5th Amendment or not comply with subpoena to testify: Rudy Giuliani

President Donald Trump's top personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said he can't rule out the possibility of the president taking the Fifth Amendment if he testifies in the Russia investigation.

Giuliani said to ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview on "This Week" Sunday, "How could I be confident" that president won't take the Fifth Amendment The former New York City mayor also commented on the possibility of Trump getting subpoenaed by the special counsel to testify. "We don't have to" comply with a subpoena, he said.

"They don't have a case on collusion, they don't have obstruction... I'm going to walk him into a prosecution for perjury like Martha Stewart did?" Giuliani said. "He's the president of the United States. Wee can assert privilege other presidents [have]."

Giuliani said "I have a client who wants to testify ... So he may testify and we may actually work things out with Bob Mueller."

But the president's lawyer also suggested he is cautious about having Trump sit down with Mueller. "Not after the way they've acted," Giuliani said of the special counsel's team. "I came into this case with a desire to [have the president talk to Mueller] and they just keep convincing me not to do it."

I asked Rudy Giuliani if Michael Cohen made payments to other women on behalf of the President. He said "I have no knowledge of that but I would think if it was necessary, yes." Catch my full interview this morning on @ThisWeekABC

2. You would think trump would want to talk to clear his reputation

Others may talk can't keep every mouth closed . Trump thinks he has loyalty like most criminal heads do

It was Mouw who, accompanied by a single other agent, came to escort Gravano from his cell in 10 South and lead him to his shiny new life as a witness for the prosecution, and he deliberately chose a time when he hoped none of the other inmates would notice. But the shuffle of feet, the opening of doors, and even the whispered voices carried through the tunnel-like corridor of the high-security wing. And all at once John Gotti was on his feet, and he let out a piercing wail as he recognized the act of betrayal that was unfolding just outside his cell door. The plaintive scream, Mouw would say, seemed to echo throughout the entire prison, bouncing off the walls and filling every bit of space. It was a sustained and powerful noise. And he imagined he could still hear the Donís lamentations as he hustled Gravano into the back of the Chevrolet parked on the street 10 floors below.
