Giuliani's former law firm rejects his defense of Stormy Daniels payment

Giuliani, who took a leave of absence from Greenberg Traurig last month, suggested on Fox News last week that payments like the one for $130,000 that Cohen made to keep Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, quiet about an affair she allegedly had with Trump, are not unusual at the firm.

The former New York City mayor, who recently joined Trump's legal team, appeared for a morning hearing for a criminal defendant. "It wasn't about that; it was about giving my full attention to the president". Now we are getting a little more color on what went on behind the scenes. "That's why the timing is right". "I have had a wonderful experience at the firm and I wish the firm and its executive chairman, Richard Rosenbaum, all the very best, now and in the future", he said. Some of the firm's attorneys dislikedTtrump, he said, and that has caused a schism. He added that he maintains respect for the former NY mayor's "incredible career" and considers him a friend.

"We can not speak for Mr. Giuliani with respect to what was intended by his remarks", a spokeswoman for the law firm said in a statement.

"Well, you know, Rudy Giuliani is a drama machine", Kirtzman told MSNBC.

In a statement, he lauded Giuliani's career, including his leadership as New York's mayor in the 1990s and early 2000s.

He added, "Michael would take care of things like this like I take care of this with my clients".

In other interviews, Giuliani also claimed that Mueller was seeking to "trap" the president into committing perjury with a request for an extended interview about Russian interference in the election and Trump's actions regarding the investigation.

In an effort to explain the payment, Giuliani said in an interview on "Fox and Friends" last week, "Don't you think a lot of these people would pay that when they can?"

Giuliani is licensed to practice law in NY but not in Florida, according to court documents.
