Stormy Daniels' former lawyer Keith Davidson filed two lawsuits Thursday: one against Daniels and her lawyer Michael Avenatti for defamation, and one against Michael Cohen for allegedly illegally recording their phone calls, according to a CNN report.
"If you look at Mr. Trump's comments, you know, that's not what he said", the attorney told Ruhle.
The "Morning Joe" co-hosts parsed the first lady's brief - and fairly rare - public response to Giuliani's remarks, which also included personal insults against the former adult film star.
Daniels has said she had sex with a married Trump in 2006.
The Donald's attorney and mouthpiece, Giuliani, recently did an interview with CNN while at the Capital Market conference in Tel Aviv where he bashed Stormi because she "sells her body for exploitation".
"Rudy is great, but Rudy is Rudy", Trump told reporters outside the White House as he prepared to head to Quebec for the Group of Seven Summit.More news: Justice Department Seizes New York Times Reporter’s Records in Leak Probe

President Donald Trump said something Friday about Rudy Giuliani that seemed like it was supposed to be praiseworthy; instead, it reads as an excruciating assessment of Giuliani's job performance as Trump's attorney up to now.
"I don't believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani", she said.
"I have her tentatively scheduled for Hannity tonight", a text message allegedly from Cohen says. "If you're a feminist and you support the porn industry you should turn in your credentials", he said.
"I respect women - lovely women and women with value - but a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation I don't respect", Giuliani said. I even have to respect, you know, criminals. He claims Stormy was concerned Trump would sue her for breaking the hush agreement when she started making deals - presumably to cash in on her alleged sexual encounter with the President-elect.
Davidson says in his lawsuit that he was never arrested for extortion and the tweet was "false" and meant to hurt his reputation.
Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney, hit back at Giuliani over the comments, calling him a "misogynist".
"Women always think that their husbands will win".
