When we last checked in with Rudy Giuliani, things didn’t look so hot for Donald trumpthe former personal lawyer of. Besides going from “America’s mayor” to “what happened to this guy?” – which is a big aside! – Giuliani faced a whole host of very serious legal issues, including, but not limited to: in connection with a criminal investigation into his relations with Ukraine; a ministry of justice probe his work involving Turkey; a defamation trial Dominion Voting Systems for its lies about the 2020 election; and the temporary suspension of his license to practice law. And it turns out things haven’t gotten much better for the former New York mayor, unless he’s forced to fund his legal defense – and only improving 0.1918% of his goal – could somehow be interpreted as “better”.
Yes, weeks after his mate Bernie kerik request people to spare all they could for Giuliani’s legal bills, the “Rudy Giuliani Legal Defense Fund” has raised just $ 9,590, less than 0.2% of the $ 5 million goal. (It is not clear if the RGLDF is a separate entity, the “Rudy Giuilani Freedom Fund” that Kerik helped create.) Kerik, the former New York Police Commissioner, knows a little about legal issues, having pleaded guilty in 2010 to tax fraud and other charges, before being forgiven, of course, by Donald Trump. You may also remember Kerik from other hits like apparently drive a case in an apartment near Ground Zero that had been reserved for 9/11 rescuers. On the fundraising page, the organizers encourage any type of person who identifies as a Giuliani groupie to fork out as much money as possible to defend the former lawyer of the former president, explaining “The swamp is revolting by placing a bull’s-eye on the back of every Trump loyalist. This puts Rudy at the top of their list. Rudy’s fate will determine if America is still a Republic ruled by We The People! Unfortunately for Rudy, this pitch apparently fell on deaf ears.
What does Trump think of Giuliani’s precarious financial situation? According to a new author reveal Michel Wolff, very little! Speak Independent:
To be fair, Giuliani probably should have seen this coming, given that Trump is known to have stiffened his contractors, to dishwasher to painters to architects, and when faced with it saying things like, “Maybe he didn’t do a good job and I was dissatisfied with his job.” “
