Everything that Donald Trump Touches Dies. That book by Rick Wilson sums up the Trump presidency and beyond. The Kirkus book review read “Scalpel in hand, a conservative strategist dissects Trumpism…The autopsy report isn’t pretty.”
The reviewer also describes Trump as “a notoriously cheap, friendless, crappy businessman.” So, why would his former personal attorney and fixer Rudy Giuliani consider himself above the circle of destruction that the ex-president carries around with him?
Washington Correspondent to The New York Times Maggie Haberman tweeted:
‘Giuliani allies are looking at the Trump $ – even if it isn’t $82 million – and are aghast that Trump isn’t helping Giuliani with legal fees. Giuliani’s friends say he is saying he is close to broke, and his interview w @MelissaRusso4NY makes clear he knows he’s in legal jeopardy.’
Haberman included the following tweet by New York Times national political reporter Shane Goldmacher within hers. He tweeted:
‘Thanks for reading and remember to always check fund-raising figures announced by campaigns!’
‘And a huge shout-out to my partner in number-crunching @rachel_shorey who may or may not have drained a MiFi device yesterday while in a car.’
Trump has pulled in far more in donations than any of his potential contenders. That meant two things. First, he could run in 2024. And second, the ex-president still wields a massive amount of power.
The former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been fighting off a federal investigation and running up the attorney fees like nobody’s business. It appeared that Giuliani’s legal defense fund failed to raise, well, pretty much anything. He worked as an unpaid lobbyist traipsing over to Ukraine in an attempt to discredit Presiden Joe Biden, according to The Mother Jones magazine.
Thus far, the former mayor has had his legal license suspending in New York. He also had has a $1.3 billion, yes with a “B,” lawsuit against him filed by Dominion Voting Systems, the Associated Press (AP) reported. In it, Giuliani claimed the company’s voting machines flipped votes from Trump to President Biden. And the former mayor’s situation has been worsening.
Apparently, Giuliani has not absorbed the gravity of his precarious legal situation.
He told NBC New York journalist Melissa Russo in an interview:
‘I’m more than willing to go to jail if they want to put me in jail. And if they do, they’re going to suffer the consequences in heaven, I’m not. Because I didn’t do anything wrong.’
The interview was meant to feature the 20th anniversary of September 11th, where Giuliani made a name for himself when he was the mayor of New York City. Instead, the former Trump fixer wanted to talk about his legal problems. He apparently did not grasp that he could go o prison or have any idea how he would pay for all his legal fees, Russo reported.
