Giuliani told the Times that Trump had repaid Cohen $35,000 a month "out of his personal family account" after the campaign was over.
Trump is facing mounting legal threats from the Cohen-Daniels situation and the special counsel's investigation of possible Russian coordination with the Trump presidential campaign.
President Donald Trump's new lead attorney, Rudy Giuliani, sought on Friday to "clarify the views" he expressed in a series of jaw-dropping interviews this week about a $130,000 hush-money payment to an adult-film actress in October 2016.
Adam Schuman, a former federal prosecutor in Brooklyn, told the Journal that the timeline suggests Cohen expanded his credit access in anticipation of high-dollar payoffs to defend Trump.

"No, I don't", Conway said on CNN's "State of the Union" when asked by anchor Jake Tapper if regular falsehoods and lies from Trump had eroded the White House's credibility.
For all the controversy Giuliani stirred up, some Trump supporters said it was wise to get the payment acknowledgement out in the open. "He's a great guy".
Giuliani said this week that the reimbursement to Cohen totalled $460,000 or $470,000, leaving it unclear what else the payments were for beyond the $130,000 that went to Clifford. They said that Mr. Trump was displeased with how Mr. Giuliani, a former NY mayor, conducted himself, and that he was also unhappy with Mr. Hannity, a commentator whose advice the president often seeks, in terms of the language he used to describe the payments to Ms. Clifford. Giuliani's revelation seemed to contradict Trump's past statements. That money was part of a nondisclosure agreement between Daniels, Cohen, and Trump. Certainly not, you know, the president's lawyer.
Giuliani in an appearance on Fox News on Wednesday had said Trump fired James Comey as FBI director previous year because Comey declined to state publicly that Trump was not at the time a target of the agency's investigation into Russia's role in the election. Asked if Trump had filed a fraudulent form, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "I don't know".
Last month, the president told reporters he was unaware of the payment and did not know where Cohen had gotten the money-let alone have knowledge of the $774,000 lines of credit. It was in that interview that he disclosed that Trump had reimbursed Cohen for Cohen's payment to Daniels.
"I hired that clown", Giuliani said of Comey. Trump added that Giuliani was still getting up to speed.
