Ever since Rudy Giuliani was hired as President Donald Trump's attorney, he has frequently made headlines.

On Sunday, Giuliani did not rule out the possibility that Michael Cohen, Trump's embattled personal attorney in charge of making the payment to Daniels, may have paid other women during the 2016 United States presidential campaign to stay silent about alleged encounters with Trump.

Citing Giuliani's interview on Sunday with ABC's George Stephanopoulos - when Giuliani suggested it's possible Cohen paid off additional women before the election - as an example, the same source said Giuliani "is stealing the spotlight and he's embarrassing (Trump)". Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she first learned that Trump reimbursed Cohen during Giuliani's interview. To which he replied, "Funneled it through the law firm, and the president repaid him".

"We got Kim Jong Un impressed enough to be releasing three prisoners today", Giuliani said.

Trump has reportedly soured on Giuliani due to the unexpected fallout. Daniels says she had an affair with the president in 2006, something the White House has denied.

According to reports, Trump has told a confidant that instead of being out right banned Giuliani should be "benched" if he can not improve his performance in interviews. "This is not the way to handle a complicated case", said Alan Dershowitz, the emeritus Harvard law professor who has been informally advising Trump on the Russian Federation probe.


Some White House staffers have even begun comparing Giuliani's performance with Anthony Scaramucci.

He also managed to voice a confident-sounding, if wholly fictitious, rationale for Trump to stonewall special counsel Robert Mueller.

Pelosi stated last month that talk of impeaching Trump would be a "gift" to Republicans and that Democrats should focus on the economy and how to help working families.

Giuliani's remarks have also been watched with concern at the State Department and Pentagon after he weighed in recently on global affairs.

But Giuliani also delved into issues of foreign policy, an area where he has no assigned role in the Trump administration.
