The White House on Thursday refused to comment on whether Rudy Giuliani has become too much of a “distraction” to serve as President Donald Trump’s lawyer.
“Not today or tomorrow or at any point ever going to comment on Rudy Giuliani’s love life,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during Thursday’s press briefing. “I will be glad to leave that to you and the reporter that spoke with him.”
Giuliani, in an interview with the Daily Mail on Thursday, raved about his new relationship with Jennifer LeBlanc, a Louisiana fundraiser with whom he has been seen several times, including once at the White House. LeBlanc at the time denied the relationship to the Mail.

was no adultery and hasn’t been,” he said in the Mail interview. “I don’t even know if it matters, because adultery is no longer grounds for divorce in New York. So I feel pretty great and I would never compromise a married woman.”
