Wallace and Giuliani struggled over the talking points of the former mayor of New York City after a week in which Trump's ex-lawyer and & # 39; fixer & # 39; Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison.

Cohen, as well as federal prosecutors, has claimed that he violated the campaign finance laws toward Trump. The violations of Cohen stem in part from payments to two women, film star Stormy Daniels and the former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who went to Trump in the run up to the 2016 elections with Trump.

"According to both Cohen and [National Enquirer publisher David] Pecker … they say they had a meeting with Donald Trump in the summer of 2016 where they discussed the payment to Karen McDougal, & Wallace said to Giuliani.

"It does not matter," Giuliani replied. "We are talking about something that does not matter, whether it happened or did not happen, it is not illegal."

After some cross talk, a visibly frustrated Wallace said, "You move shells around me, whether it happened or it did not happen."

"But that's what lawyers always do," Giuliani said. "You argue as an alternative."

"I ask you for the truth, sir," Wallace replied.

After some more back and forth, Wallace jumped to verify Giuliani's assertion that the prosecutors who claimed that Trump was involved in the payments were originally appointed to look into "collusion" and "obstruction".

"No, no no, sir, this was the southern district of New York, they have nothing to do with collusion or obstruction of justice," said Wallace.

& # 39; They are part of the Justi department – & # 39; Giuliani began to say. But Wallace intervened and said: "I'm sure that when you were the American lawyer for the South District, you did not get orders from someone in Washington who had nothing to do with the Attorney General." ;

Giuliani was the American prosecutor for the southern district of New York from 1983 to 1989. The prosecutors who are investigating Trump are at that office today.
