"We all feel pretty good that we've got everything kind of straightened out and we're setting the agenda", Giuliani, now the mouthpiece for Trump's legal team, told The Washington Post.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now on President Trump's legal team, told CBS News correspondent Paula Reid Monday afternoon that special counsel Robert Mueller's office has rejected proposals to allow Mr. Trump to answer questions from investigators in writing.

Within days, Giuliani contradicted comments from Trump regarding porn star Stormy Daniels and a $130,000 payment. The ex-mayor said Sunday he wanted the sitting president to get at least as much deference as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did in the investigation of her email server.

"They've backed off that because they realize that could really, really backfire on them", Giuliani said.

CNN's Kaitlan Collins reported on Tuesday that Trump is already souring on his new attorney, despite the fact that he has only been on the job for two weeks. Sources close to Trump said he thinks Giuliani's interview gave new life Daniels' case.


Hannity asked Giuliani, who claimed the Daniels' payout did not violate campaign laws, if the payment was not a problem because "they funneled it through the law firm?" He also suggested the October 2016 settlement had been made because Trump was in the stretch run of his presidential campaign.

"Either he'll change his behavior, or he's not going to do it very long", the senior White House official said.

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 knows full well that the Constitution neither states nor implies that "a president can not be distracted by a criminal investigation".

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