  • Stormy Daniels Files Lawsuit Against Her Former Attorney AP

The former NY mayor faced a stern rebuke on Thursday from a spokeswoman of First Lady Melania Trump on the topic of the president's alleged affair with Stephanie Clifford, who is better known as porn star Stormy Daniels.

According to CBS News' White House reporter Jacqueline Alemany, Trump made the comments in response to a question about Giuliani's Israel trip. "She believes in her husband".

On Wednesday, the adult-film star and director announced on social media that she is launching a perfume/cologne called "Truth" with sex-centric retailer It's the Bomb. "I even have to respect criminals", Giuliani said.

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".

"These text messages show that the prior denials by Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen relating to what Mr. Trump knew and about the honesty of my client were absolute lies", said Michael Avenatti, Clifford's embattled attorney.

"Melania Trump is classy and gorgeous, and I really admire her", Kelly said.

Even before that, Israel had been blamed for a series of recent strikes inside Syria that killed Iranians , though it has not acknowledged them.

First lady Melania Trump released a statement denying that Rudy Giuliani knew whether she believed the allegations from adult film star Stormy Daniels. Trump denied the affair ever happened and referred to the payment on Twitter as an attempt to "stop the false and extortionist accusations".

Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, hit back against Giuliani for doubting his client's credibility, calling him a "misogynist".

"We need her as by doing tomorrow you just create another news cycle instead of putting an end to this one". However, given some of the president's previous discussions about Ivanka and the fact that she works for his administration, it seems likely Giuliani meant Ivanka.

"Contrary to the assertions in her complaint, [Daniels] was eager to appear on "Hannity, '" Davidson's court filing states, "as she stated her desire to 'increase her public exposure" and thus her earning capacity".

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.

But one person familiar with Cohen's thinking told CNN the text messages cited in the lawsuit represented discussions between two lawyers who wanted to ensure that the nondisclosure agreement Daniels signed was being adhered to.
