Have Donald Trump and his lead attorney, former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, been hatching up ideas for media appearances? They met the night before the attorney went on a TV disaster spree the first time. Now, the two have been seen colluding once again.
Giuliani has not been a functioning lawyer for 30 years, but the president appeared to believe that the former mayor would be a good match for another attorney. Entertainment actress and producer, Stormy Daniels, sued Trump for release from an unsigned nondisclosure agreement and defamation of character.
‘It’s an absolute unmitigated disaster for Rudy Giuliani and the president. It’s a train wreck. I can’t believe that that actually just happened. I mean, what we witnessed by Rudy Giuliani may be one of the worst TV appearances by any attorney on behalf of a client in modern times.’
On television, the elderly attorney-turned-mayor gave away hints that the president could have paid off many women to keep them quiet about affairs. Then, he pulled another blunder.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating the Russian attack on the U.S. 2016 presidential election and possible Trump campaign collusion. Giuliani continued with his television appearance, and offered the possibility that the president might invoke his Fifth Amendment rather than sit through an interview with Mueller.
Giuliani was referring to a person’s right to remain silent rather than give self-incriminating testimony. Then, the attorney who had been mothballed said that Trump had every right to ignore a Muller subpoena (not true).
Later, a White House pool reporter, Steven Nelson, wrote:
‘A tipster (says) Trump is with his new personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. Pool sought confirmation nearly two hours ago from the White House, but has yet to receive it.’
Apparently, the former mayor had been seen huddling with Donald Trump at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia after he appeared on the ABC show. Hopefully, their strategy will be better than the previous one.
The White House refused to confirm the report.
