What happened to the New York mayor that stood on the ashes of the Twin Towers and moved the city and the country forward? Rudy Giuliani is in the midst of getting a divorce, but getting a divorce is not the source of his erratic behavior. On the contrary, his erratic behavior may have been the source of his divorce. His wife said that the man of today is not the man she married.
The Donald Trump era has been an exercise in revealing what motivates people to do anything in order for them to obtain it. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) debased himself to ride the president’s sails into his Senate seat again. Rudy Giuliani apparently did everything to keep in front of the cameras, to stay relevant.
Now, the former head of the Southern District of New York (SDNY) has been investigated by that very body of top attorneys. That has not stopped him from clamoring to be on the president’s impeachment trial defense team.
On his way into Mar-a-Lago New Year’s party, reporters caught the former mayor. His response to them was odd. He said he would like to try the case against his client, Trump, according to NBC:
”If you give me the case, I will prosecute it as a racketeering case, which I kind of invented anyway.’
Of course, he probably meant he wanted to be on the defense team. Beginning in early 2018, Giuliani joined the Trump team and has been out lobbying to become part of the commander-in-chief’s impeachment trial defense team. The former federal prosecutor has been running a deep state team in Ukraine chasing “debunked conspiracy theories.” His activities have led to Trump’s impeachment, but that has not stopped him from plowing forward.
According to The Huffington Post:
‘[An] adviser said Giuliani has not really been aggressively lobbying, but has made it known that he is “available” to offer his services. They said, “Thanks, but no thanks.'”
Giuliani told Fox News’ host Jeanine Pirro that he would go to the Supreme Court to get the case dismissed:
‘I would say if it’s nonconstitutional, it’s null and void.’
According to Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, the president’s case would be headed up by White House Counsel Pat Cipolione and a personal Trump attorney Jay Sekulow.
The former mayor has been trying to dig up any hint of false evidence that Ukraine attacked the U.S. presidential election in 2016, not Russia. That seems to be an odd pursuit, because Russia casually and without any attempt to hide its action, hacked a Ukraine utility company where Vice President Joe Biden’s son worked. POTUS seemingly thinks Biden would be his most likely opponent in 2020.
Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller III’s investigation led to the evidence that:
‘Trump’s campaign had expected and welcomed election help from Russia but did not engage in a criminal conspiracy to obtain it. The special counsel did not recommend any specific actions by Congress against Trump, and the White House never released Giuliani’s response.’
The U.S. Ambassador to the European Union and POTUS Ukraine handler Gordon Sondland referred people to the former mayor. Trump said:
‘I will have Mr. Giuliani give you a call. Rudy very much knows what’s happening, and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great.’
