While Giuliani said that Napolitano was a "wonderful guy", he "shouldn't be speculating on facts that he doesn't know".

"I have no knowledge of that but I would think if it was necessary, yes", Giuliani told ABC News in an interview. "[He] can assert the same privileges other presidents have".

President Bill Clinton had resisted a subpoena during the investigation of his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, then a White House intern.

Kate McKinnon also appears during the sketch as Trump's new lawyer Rudy Giuliani and is revealed to be speaking during a Fox News interview.

A subpoena confrontation could substantially up the constitutional ante related to Trump's dealings with - and his possible attempts at obstruction of - the Russian Federation investigation, which the president has repeatedly termed a "witch hunt".

"This was for another objective, to protect him, to protect his family", he said.

"Even if he takes the case away from Mueller, that doesn't mean the case goes away", he said.

He said he met the president over the weekend at Trump's golf course in Sterling, Va., to discuss legal strategy and that the president seemed upbeat about his legal situation.

A court did force President Richard M. Nixon to hand over tapes in the Watergate investigation, but that was different, Sharman said.

Giuliani's addition to the president's legal team was part of an overhaul that not only involved the departures and arrivals of several important players, but also pointed to a far more aggressive pushback against Mueller's investigative authority. The Washington Post reported that he recently threatened to subpoena President Trump to make him do just that.

A secret $130,000 payment was made on the eve of the hotly contested 2016 United States presidential election to silence Daniels on claims of a decade-old affair. Cohen faces a criminal investigation in NY, where FBI agents raided his home and office several weeks ago seeking records about the Daniels nondisclosure agreement and other matters.

In California, a Trump Organization lawyer seeks an arbitration order requiring Daniels to pay the president as much as $20 million in damages for breaching the nondisclosure agreement.

Then Daniels got brought into the party line of calls as well.

"I have no knowledge of that", Giuliani said. "If I saw $130,000, I would never think it was to settle a substantial claim against my client".

"Mr. Trump, I don't know what to do, you keep changing your story on the Stormy Daniels payment", Stiller said, portending the cameo to come.

Michael Avenatti says the president's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, "expects the American people to believe that he doesn't really know the facts" of when Trump learned about the $130,000 hush payment to Daniels, who has alleged a sexual tryst with Trump in 2006.
