Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano shut down attempts by “Fox & Friends” hosts on Thursday to spin Rudy Giuliani’s bombshell admission that President Donald Trump personally reimbursed attorney Michael Cohen for paying off adult film star Stormy Daniels.
“If Rudy wants the public to believe that Donald Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen $130,000 and didn’t know what it was for, didn’t know that it was going to silence Stormy Daniels, that is unworthy of belief,” he said. “It is hard to believe that Donald Trump, a man who knows where every one of his nickels has gone!”
“It’s possible, but that would be an ethical problem,” Napolitano replied. “The good part is, if the money came from the president’s personal funds, then there’s no election issue… But it does create a problem in that the president has said he knows nothing about this.”
