Giuliani: Trump 'Encouraging Me to Do More' Interviews

President Donald Trump's supporters are "much more excited" about voting in the midterm elections because of the ongoing investigation into Russian election interference, former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani said Monday.

"I can mention this: Everybody around Donald Trump said he was drinking too much - Donald Trump suggested as much - that was two years ago", Scarborough said.

Giuliani said there was no truth to the idea that unless he is more careful on TV, the president will oust him.

The investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election could actually help Republicans in this year's key midterm elections, according to Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's new personal attorney. "He's very comfortable with the strategy we're pursuing". Citing four sources familiar with the president's thinking, CNN said Trump "has been flustered by the onslaught of negative coverage generated" by Giuliani.

Since joining the Trump legal team, Giuliani has attracted attention for his series of weird interviews.

Their comments came as Giuliani appeared on multiple media outlets where he discussed the controversy surrounding former porn star Stormy Daniels. Daniels says she had an affair with the president in 2006, something the White House has denied.

After Trump chided Giuliani on Friday, saying the lawyer needed to "get his facts straight", Giuliani put out a statement trying to clarify his remarks. "He's only been on the legal team for about three weeks now, not even three weeks".

Giuliani gave a streak of media interviews beginning Wednesday and continuing through Sunday on a weekend morning show.

It was the clearest sign to date that Trump's administration is seeking to draw a line between itself and Giuliani on matters of government policy, even as he continues to act as his spokesman on matters related to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

Many in the White House have begun evoking comparisons between Giuliani and Anthony Scaramucci, another hard-charging New Yorker with a knack for getting TV airtime.
