Giuliani says Cohen would have paid off other women 'if it was necessary'

President Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, could have made additional payments to other women beyond the $130,000 he paid adult film star Stormy Daniels to buy her silence about an alleged affair with the president, Trump's new personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said Sunday on ABC News.

"I have no knowledge of that. But I would think if it was necessary, yes," Giuliani said. He sought to cast Cohen's behavior as normal lawyerly stuff from which Trump was to some extent removed. Cohen "made payments for the president — or he conducted business for the president," Giuliani continued, "which means he had legal fees, moneys laid out, and expenditures — which I have on my bills to my clients."
