The former New York City mayor had backpedaled a day earlier on whether the President should sit down for an interview with Mueller, saying he was suddenly open to the prospect after dismissing it only 24 hours earlier.

Stormy Daniels is asking a federal judge in California to revive her high-profile lawsuit so she can put President Trump under oath. Last month, Judge S. James Otero put a temporary stop on Daniels' case against Trump and his embattled attorney, Michael Cohen. Cohen, who vowed to plead the Fifth in the suit, had requested a stay because of the FBI raid on his residence and office, and the federal probe into his business dealings in New York. But in court papers filed Thursday, Daniels is asking Otero to reconsider and modify the 90-day stay. The porn actress says her case against Trump can go on without Cohen, as “new facts” have come to light following the court's order. Those revelations arise
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani reversed himself and said he would prefer that President Trump conduct an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller – then mused that 'truth is relative.' Giuliani, who is part of Trump's legal team, comes after he previously mused that the interview was a 'perjury trap' that might ensnare his client. Other supporters and lawyers have offered similar counsel. Trump made numerous false statements in a recorded court deposition before he was president. 'I guess I'd rather do the interview. It gets it over with it. It makes my client happy,' Giuliani told the Washington Post. He acknowledged: 'The safe course you hear every lawyer say is don't do the interview,
The Hamptons may conjure images of high hedges and traditional New England architecture, but mod mansions are on the move, flipping faster than their more conservative neighbors. “Modern homes are happier and much brighter,” says Marc Cléjan, an owner of Modern Net Zero, a firm that builds Hamptons homes that consume zero energy and feature a modern aesthetic. He recently built 5 Quadrant Hill Road in East Hampton, a 4,200-square-foot, six-bedroom, five-bathroom “passive house” that recently sold (it had been asking $2.9 million). “The large windows connect you to nature. A lot of people don't want to feel cooped up in a cluttered old house while they're on vacation.” Not only are sales of modern
There's been a very clear and consistent message from Wall Street when it comes to automakers: Out with the old, in with the new. That message was confirmed as Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) rushed onto the scene and was one of the hottest stocks over the past few years. Meanwhile, legacy automakers such as Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) were practically left for dead. After years of Tesla love and Detroit auto hate, two analysts are changing their tune -- here's what investors need to know. Turning bearish? Wall Street's love affair with Tesla hit a minor speed bump with CEO Elon Musk's abrasive treatment of analysts on its recent quarterly conference call. Surely analysts will shake off the bizarre conference
In a special report, Ari Melber examines the arc of Rudy Giuliani’s career –from combative prosecutor and mayor to defending Donald Trump. An expert panel joins the show, including former Executive Editor of the New York Times.
During the winter of 2006, Ted Olson helped me land a job with Rudy Giuliani's fledgling presidential campaign. Friends for decades, a good word from the legal titan Olson all but assured me a spot in the Lower Manhattan headquarters for Giuliani. More than ten years later, both found their names linked to the defense team for current President Donald Trump. The two took divergent paths and, given a little background, that speaks volumes about the direction of Trump's legal strategy. Giuliani needs little introduction. The hard-charging, pugnacious character seemingly born directly from the incarnate soul of New York City, campaign staff referred to him simply at “The Mayor.” While controversial
Notably, the staffs of Independent Counsels Leon Jaworski in 1974 and Kenneth Starr in 1998 opined that indictments could be brought against a President while still in office. Indeed, the Clinton administration's Justice Department, while concluding that "considerations of constitutional structure" suggest not indicting a sitting president, acknowledged that the Constitution does not squarely answer the question. What, then, are these structural barriers to indictment? The first is the idea that our separation of powers would be offended if one branch were able to take actions that might imperil the ability of another branch to carry out its constitutionally prescribed duties. That would arguably
But pies don't make up for lies, and the press secretary often gets into hot water as she goes to bat for the president, primarily for her sins of omission. Recently, she was criticized after Trump's new personal attorney Rudy Giuliani went on Sean Hannity's Fox News show and told him that Trump had reimbursed his attorney Michael Cohen $130,000 for Stormy Daniels' "hush money." One reporter asked her: "Were you lying to us at the time? Or were you in the dark?" Sanders said that she first learned about the reimbursement by watching Giuliani's interview, and gave the best information she had at the time.
Connecticut-based Purdue Pharma is facing a wave of civil lawsuits as New York, Texas and five other states have joined a growing number actions against the company. The US government missed the opportunity to curb sales of the drug that kickstarted the opioid epidemic when it secured the only criminal conviction against the maker of OxyContin a decade ago. Purdue Pharma hired Rudolph Giuliani, the former New York mayor and now Donald Trump’s lawyer, to head off a federal investigation in the mid-2000s into the company’s marketing of the powerful prescription painkiller at the centre of an epidemic estimated to have claimed at least 300,000 lives.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- If you're a science fiction fan, you probably saw the 2016 movie called "Arrival." IMDB says: "A linguist is recruited by the military to communicate with alien lifeforms after twelve mysterious spacecraft land around the world." That linguist, played by Amy Adams, learns the alien language, and a weird thing happens. She starts thinking like the aliens, which are called Heptapods. That's when the film introduces the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis that suggests the language we use -- and the way we use it -- actually rewires the brain. In other words, how we talk influences the way we think and act. Even our worldview. It's called Linguistic Relativity. The strong version of the theory
