For now, White House aides said, Giuliani still has a direct line in to Trump - the two speak nearly daily - and nobody in the West Wing is eager to insert themselves between the two irascible New Yorkers by yanking Giuliani off TV.
President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani says his boss isn't frustrated with him and has actually encouraged him to do more TV hits. "I try to keep them under control, I just did one on Sunday given though we had about four requests". "No, the president feels that the TV interviews have organized his supporters and those who are - who understand the way in which he's been very badly treated in this situation from the very beginning". "But now after this string of interviews that Rudy Giuliani has done... the president is now thinking that Rudy Giuliani is causing more headaches than he is solving problems".
Scarborough went on to cite sources saying that the controversy posed an "existential threat to the presidency". By Friday, the president tried to smooth things over, saying Giuliani was "still getting his facts straight". The former White House communications director himself drew parallels between his own burn-bright-burn-fast tenure and Giuliani's performance.
Giuliani's latest comments come at a time when Trump and his attorneys are weighing the president's options for an interview with Mueller, who was tasked with investigating Russian interference a year ago.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani once claimed that he could get special counsel Robert Mueller's probe to end within "a week or two" - but now that the investigation seems to be steamrolling ahead, President Donald Trump is reportedly losing patience.
In a lengthy interview on Fox News Wednesday night, Giuliani revealed that Trump had repaid his lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels as part of a nondisclosure pact barring her from discussing an alleged affair with Trump.
But Giuliani says he's been told to do even more.
That was only last Wedensday on Giuliani's Fox News interview.
