Rudy Giuliani on Friday walked back statements about a $130,000 hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels as well as President Donald Trump’s reason for firing former FBI Director James Comey.
The former mayor of New York City, who is now counsel to the president, maintained that the payment to Daniels does not constitute a violation of campaign finance laws.

But Giuliani said his references to the timing do not represent the president’s knowledge, but instead his own understanding of the matter.
