It’s been an interesting couple of days for President Trump and his new lawyer, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani contradicted the president about payments to Stormy Daniels in a Wednesday interview and spent the rest of the week adding details and clarifications to the original contradiction.
In this episode, the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast team talks to New York University constitutional law professor Rick Pildes about whether the new comments create legal complications for Trump. The team also discusses where the investigation of Michael Cohen could be headed.
