Hours later, Mr Giuliani backed away from his previous suggestion that the October 27 settlement had been made because Mr Trump was in a critical phase of his campaign.

"The facts, I'm still learning", the former federal prosecutor told Pirro.

"He started yesterday. He'll get his facts straight", Trump said, adding, "He's a great guy".

But no debt to Cohen was listed on Trump's personal financial disclosure form, which was certified on June 16, 2017.

Cohen then hangs up and calls Trump's new lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Trump has denied knowledge of the payment, although his lawyer Rudy Giuliani claimed Trump repaid Cohen the $130,000 on a television appearance on Wednesday.

Saturday Night Live packed its cold open on May 5, bringing in several characters from the White House as played by current cast members and a slew of celebrity guests, including Stormy Daniels.

Cummings is urging Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform committee, to investigate.

Giuliani, who was recently installed as President Donald Trump's new personal lawyer, appeared on ABC's This Week on Sunday discussing the Stormy Daniels allegations and the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.

Meanwhile, Daniels' Los Angeles-based attorney Michael Avenatti seeks a copy of a report from the U.S. Treasury Department relating to the $130,000 payment as part of Daniels' lawsuit against Trump, Cohen and a limited liability company created to broker the nondisclosure agreement. Longtime Trump defenders and critics alike questioned the president's honesty in the aftermath of Giuliani's casual admittance, which appears to contradict earlier statements made by both the president and his legal team.

Now, Giuliani says "his references to timing" were based on his own understanding and he was "not describing my understanding of the president's knowledge". He did not elaborate.

In a statement released Friday, Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's new lawyer, walked back some of his recent comments.

In a series of tweets Thursday, Trump acknowledged the reimbursement.

Trump told reporters before boarding Air Force One that "We're not changing any stories". "Politically, everything matters, but I don't see a problem here, at least not" legally, he said.

After the parade of star power continued to dazzle, Trump finally asked Cohen to settle things once and for all with Daniels, and his former lawyer made the call.

Before Giuliani released his statement, Trump called the former NY mayor "a great guy".

The president claimed "virtually everything" reported about the payments - which are the subject of legal action and media attention - has been wrong, but he declined to elaborate.

However he has said he reimbursed his lawyer Michael Cohen for the $130,000 payment, which he says was created to stop Ms Daniels from making "false and extortionist" statements.

Trump referred to the payments story as "that kind of crap" and said Giuliani was still getting up to speed on his legal position.
