A day after Stormy Daniels accused her former lawyer of being a "puppet" for President Trump, the attorney countersued the porn star and her new attorney for defamation and accused Trump's personal attorney of illegally recording their telephone calls.
During a visit in Israel on Wednesday, Giuliani said he does not believe Stormy Daniels when she says she had a sexual encounter with Trump because she "sells her body for sexual exploitation", The Hill reported.
Giuliani went on to reveal that he spoke to Melania about the affair and "she believes her husband, and she knows it's untrue". Tell me what damage she suffered.
When asked about Giuliani's comment by Maggie Haberman, a reporter for The New York Times, Grisham said she did not think the first lady had spoken with the attorney on the subject.
When CNN asked the former mayor of NY for a comment on the response from the East Wing, Giuliani admitted he had never spoken to her about the affair, but that he stands by his initial comments. "You're going to tell me being involved in pornography isn't demeaning to women?"

Devin Nunes, the House Intelligence chairman who has demanded more documents as part of his investigation. Trump has claimed that a spy was planted in his campaign to help his Democratic opponent.
Grisham's statement certainly contradicted what Giuliani, who is also a former mayor of NY, said in Israel.
At the same conference, Giuliani said that the legal team of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is trying to "frame" the president and that after Trump called off a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Kim "got back on his hands and knees and begged for it, which is exactly the position you want to put him in".
"Look, Rudy's great, but Rudy is Rudy", Trump said.
Giuliani had initially said at an event in Tel Aviv, "I respect all human beings". And therefore sell their bodies. Don't you respect porn stars?
The lawsuit also alleges that Davidson "secretly tipped off" Cohen about Daniels' plans to hire another counsel and publicly disclose her relationship with the president, which resulted in Cohen initiating an arbitration proceeding to get a temporary restraining order against the porn actress, to "silence" her. So yes, I respect all human beings. "I respect women- handsome women and women with value- but a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation I don't respect". Sex work is a credible, professional industry, and women working in this field are deserving of more respect than Giuliani's comments afford them. Let me cross-examine you, because the business you are in entitles you to no degree of giving your credibility any weight.
