Rudy Giuliani got divorced relatively recently. His former wife said that the former New York mayor and Donald Trump’s personal attorney had changed. He was not the man she married. Well, that makes sense. To remain in the ex-president’s good graces a person has to be Ivanka or a human pretzel. Then, this happened.
A Trump spokesperson announced Giuliani will no longer be serving as his personal attorney. We saw the president-adoring Vice President Mike Pence spend four-plus years smitten with the ex. Then, one disagreement based upon reality and given his impossible task, we saw Trump send an enraged mob after the VP, chanting “Hang Mike Pence! Hang Mike Pence!”
Being the president’s personal attorney is just as dangerous. The former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, landed in prison. Apparently oblivious, Giuliani shouted to the ginned-up rioters “Trial by combat! Trial by combat,” according to The New York Daily News Well, that does not look good. But it gets worse.
Middlebury College in Vermont revoked the honorary degree it gave to Giuliani for his 9/11 New York City response. The private liberal arts college’s President Laurie Patton said that the former degree-holder was “fomenting the violent uprising” on January 6, according to The Newsweek magazine:
‘[The New York State Bar Association is in the process of[ expulsion from the New York State Bar Association for his role in the January 6 insurrection.’
The former mayor’s woes go back to his comments about the Dominion Voting Systems in Alabama. Giuliani claimed that the Dominion voting machines had been programmed to turn Trump votes into President Joe Biden votes, that they stole the election from 45. He repeated this over and over. So, Dominion decided to sue him — for $1.3 billion.
Dominion vehemently denied Rudy Giuliani’s charges and frustrated with the lack of response filed the billion-plus defamation lawsuit against the personal attorney along with another Trump attorney, Sidney Powell.
Sad to say, Giuliani is no longer Trump’s personal attorney.
Dominion CEO John Paulos released a statement:
‘[Giuliani’s allegations] undermined trust in American democratic institutions.[Giuliani] continues to make demonstrable false claims, and we intend to hold him, and others who spread disinformation, to account.’
‘[Dominion’s lawsuit] intended to frighten people of faint heart…another act of intimidation by the hate-filled left-wing to wipe out and censor the exercise of free speech, as well as the ability of lawyers to defend their clients vigorously.’
Of course, Giuliani filed a countersuit:
‘Giuliani has claimed that he wants to examine the technology behind Dominion’s voting machines as well as the company’s history, finances and business dealings to uncover possible corruption. There is no proof of Dominion having committed any voter fraud or vote-switching in the 2020 national elections.’
At the same time, Giuliani could be looking at legal responses for his role in fomenting the January 6 attempted coup at the nation’s Capitol Building.
