Conservative Ken Cuccinelli on Thursday seemed utterly exhausted as he tried to defend the latest revelations regarding President Donald Trump's attorney paying off adult film star Stormy Daniels.

In discussing Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani's decision to admit on Fox News Wednesday night that the president reimbursed attorney Michael Cohen for the Daniels payout, Cuccinelli said he simply didn't understand what, if any, strategy was being pursued.

"The way the president's legal team has operated through this whole thing has, just as a lawyer, been very curious to me," he said.

He went on to note that Giuliani's admission about the Daniels payment must be part of some legal strategy, though he couldn't fathom what the end game must be.

"Frankly, it would be a hard thing to be the president's lawyer," he said. "Because ultimately he's going to have to answer questions and you know how undisciplined he is, and today becomes just one more installment of questions."

"Well maybe that's why they keep leaving," host Chris Cuomo said of Trump's lawyers. "You keep seeing a shedding of talent around him because it gets hard to justify things you know you aren't true."

Cuomo then asked Cuccinelli what he made of Giuliani attacking FBI agents who raided former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's house as "stormtroopers."

"I really do not like to see anybody on any side of an argument wander into language of the Nazi Germany era," Cuccinelli said. "It does nothing to help the discussion... this may be how they're presenting it now, but the contrast involving two lawyers -- Cohen on one side and Rudy Giuliani on the other -- does not help the legal team, their own credibility."
