What is up with former New York mayor and Donald Trump TV attorney Rudy Giuliani? He is either doing the best playing-the-fool act or going nuts. The country decided to have a little fun at his expense.
An ad popped up in the New York City subway. It advertised Giuliani as “crazy.” It also hawked the forme mayor offering his legal services, such as “back-channel deals” and “cable news appearances.”
The flashy blue-banner showed a crazed Giuliani face unable to keep his tongue in his mouth. There was a phone number and a website for “CrazyRudyLaw.com.”
A subway rider saw the “Crazy Rudy” advertisement and told The Daily News:
‘At least I’m assuming its fake! lol.’
For some reason, POTUS had to keep the elderly Giuliani on, whether he was paid or volunteer staff. He sent the Secretary of State a strange manila envelope stuffed with conspiracy theory propaganda primarily about the former ambassador to Ukraine who was fired.
The president sent him on a mission to pressure the new president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky into digging up dirt on Hunter Biden. Hunter is the son of the man Trump considers his most likely opponent in the 2020 presidential election, former vice president Joe Biden.
The former VP’s son sat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company, which was investigated. Hunter Biden came out of the investigation clean.
Part of the former mayor’s frenzy might be attributed to the subpoena he received in regard to the House impeachment efforts. Should Trump go down, what would happen to the near-loon attorney?
Back to the subway ad. The phone number on the ad went to an angry voicemail shouting “You have called the law offices of crazy Rudy! We specialize in back-channel deals, cable news appearances and will work when drunk!” The banner advertised he works for ‘FREE!” and has “NO SHAME.”
Giuliani came onto the Trump legal team in April 2018 to help defend the president against the Mueller report. He worked the 2016 presidential election for Trump prior to that. The former mayor had hoped to become attorney general (AG), but that spot when to former AG Jeff Sessions.
Although he cliamed he had not spoken to former Trump campaign Paul Manafort chairman directly in two years. He did indirectly, though, and admitted he sought the former chair’s advice, because Manafort was an expert on Ukraine. Giuliani said, according to The Washington Post:
‘It was that I believed there was a lot of evidence that the [Democratic National Committee] and the Clinton campaign had a close connection to Ukrainian officials. It was all about Trump. I don’t think I could exonerate Manafort.’
Giuliani consulted with Manafort even as the former campaign chair was serving seven years in prison. The former mayor went through the federal prisoner’s attorney. He was looking for evidence to prove his conspiracy theory that the Russians did not interfere in the 2016 presidential election. No, he believed it was Ukrania interfering in support of Secretary Hillary Clinton.
The two men shared an interest that might defeat Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Manafort was convicted of tax and financial fraud “charge” related to his time supporting the former Russian-friendly Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanokovych.
The website dead-ended.
