1. On Hannity, Giuliani says that Trump fired Comey because he wouldn't say publicly that he wasn't a target of the investigation. Giuliani added that he thought the Lester Holt interview went well.
2. Giuliani says he wants Trump's answers to Mueller's questions be submitted via audio tape.
3. Giuliani just now: "I know James Comey and I know President Trump....sorry Jim, I know you're a liar..you're a disgraceful liar."
4. Giuliani: "Comey should be prosecuted for leaking confidential FBI information."

Giuliani is referring to Comey giving the unclassified portion of his Trump memos to a friend and former FBI colleague to leak to the NYT
5. Hannity to Giuliani: “Is Robert Mueller setting a perjury trap for the President?”
6. Hannity says he wants the “Hillary standard” for Trump’s potential Mueller interview...”she didn’t have to go under oath.”

One doesn’t need to go under oath to be charged with lying to federal investigators.
7. "I believe that Sessions and Rosenstein should end this investigation, in the interest of justice." - Giuliani just now.
8. Re parameters of Mueller interview, Giuliani says "I'm not going to let Trump be treated worse than Clinton.." and then he adds "or Hillary Clinton"

Giuliani referring to Clinton's interview with the Special Counsel Ken Starr and HRC's interview with FBI agents.
9, Giuliani just now... "I'm sorry Hillary, I know you didn't win...but you're a criminal...you have to go to jail."
10. Hannity quotes Comey saying "Hillary Clinton deeply respects the rule of law..."

Giuliani pauses and says re Comey "this is a very perverted man."
11. Giuliani just now "Sessions shouldn't have appointed Rosenstein"

Not sure of the genesis and how Rosenstein ended up on the list of candidates, but it was Trump as POTUS, not Sessions, that nominated Rosenstein.
12. WOW. Giuliani just said that Trump reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000.

"he didn't know the specifics of it, he knew the general arrangement."
13. Giuliani said this in reference to any potential campaign finance violations - saying that because Trump reimbursed Cohen there wouldn't be an issue. This is all new with respect to a Trump lawyer confirming it on record.
14. White House and Justice Department reporters right now....
15. Hannity is trying to play cleanup here after Giuliani said this. Trying to get Giuliani to explain it differently and Giuliani says that Cohen paid the $130k and that Trump "reimbursed him over several (sounded like months but can't be sure)."
16. Laura Ingraham is playing the clip right now from Air Force One where Trump says he had no idea about the payment contradicting what Giuliani just said on Hannity.
17. Laura Ingraham just now: They have to clarify this..this is a problem (the contradiction).
18. Giuliani will be on Fox Business with @MariaBartiromo tomorrow morning.

Also White House Deputy Press Secretary @hogangidley45 will be on @ShannonBream's show at 11:00 PM tonight...she will definitely ask him about this Giuliani contradiction.
19. @mj_lee working day and night...
20. Not that you needed this....but just in case....a source close to Trump just confirmed to me that he (unclear when) did indeed reimburse Cohen.
21. Problem with this is if the feds deem @StormyDaniels payment to be an election related expense, Trump would have still been required to file an in-kind contribution report as part of his FEC campaign filings. He would be required by law to report it.
22. WH Deputy Press Secretary @hogangidley45 says the White House team had no idea what Giuliani was going to discuss on Hannity. When @ShannonBream tried to follow up, Hogan said he had to refer this to outside counsel. "I'm not an attorney, I just work at the White House"
23. @ShannonBream just asked Hogan about this tweet "Is the President going to fire Mueller or Rosenstein," she asked. Hogan said "you'll just have to wait and see," channeling POTUS.

24. @ShannonBream asks Hogan about CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel...Hogan says "Even people who oppose this President, support Gina Haspel...people on both sides of the aisle have come out in support of her. She has an unblemished record..."
25. Look this payment stuff was going to come out eventually, it's not unreasonable to assume that Giuliani was trying to get ahead of future stories and get this information out already.
36. @costareports spoke to Giuliani who told him the payments revelation was planned.
