The admission comes after Giuliani repeatedly discussed the Mueller investigation and the legal issues surrounding the Stormy Daniels case in detail on national television, revealing new information and providing comments that legal experts viewed as damaging.
Since joining the Trump legal team, Giuliani has attracted attention for his series of freaky interviews.
Giuliani had said he doesn't want Mr. Trump to be interviewed orally and/or under oath by Mr. Mueller, saying that the experienced prosecutor could be setting up a perjury trap, making an explicit analogy to the Martha Stewart insider-trading case.
Daniels says it is too late for that, adding: "I know you don't believe in climate change, but a storm's a-comin' baby". But in weekend interviews, Giuliani appeared to dig himself a deeper hole by acknowledging that "Cohen takes care of situations like this, then gets paid for them sometimes". "I think he's very comfortable now that someone is doing that for him".

On Friday, Netanyahu uploaded a short video clip to his Facebook account complaining about a lack of media coverage of the visit. He leads the world's third-largest economy.
Giuliani added: "He certainly agrees with it. and people around the White House who are talking and leaking certainly don't have the president's best interest at heart".
Earlier Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the President "certainly feels that he is an added member - added value member - to his outside special counsel". He also suggested the October 2016 settlement had been made because Trump was in the stretch run of his presidential campaign. He did not rule out the possibility that Cohen had paid off other women.
But according to Scarborough, the White House could only distract the public for so long.
He also said that Trump is still hopeful that he and special counsel Robert Mueller can agree to a face-to-face meeting. By Friday afternoon, Giuliani released a statement to clarify his remarks. So Giuliani pirouetted once more and said the payment was made "to resolve a personal and false allegation" and "would have been done in any event, whether (Trump) was a candidate or not".
