Friends of Giuliani Want Trump to Help Rudy with Insurmountable Legal Debt
In the waning days of 2020, on through the first 3 weeks of this new year, Rudy Giuliani was Donald Trump’s ride or die. His “BFF”, if you will.
The former NYC Mayor was the attorney for Trump at the time, and was tasked with finding a way to prove that the 2020 election was “stolen” from Trump.
Rudy hit a number of brick walls, litigiously, and apparently did so at great personal cost.
Giuliani’s advisers are pleading with Trump’s team to dip into its $250 million campaign bank account and pay the attorney for the work he did to try to overturn the results of the 2020 election, according to a report from The New York Times.
Giuliani’s team increased the pressure on Trump’s camp, the Times reported, after federal prosecutors executed a search warrant at the lawyer’s home and office as part of an investigation into his dealings with Ukraine.Trending:
They are looking into whether Giuliani illegally lobbied the Trump administration on behalf of Ukrainian oligarchs, the same officials who were helping him search for dirt on Trump’s political foes, including then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Rudy and The Don had a bit of a falling out near the end of Trump’s first term, with the then-President allegedly infuriated over the inability of his longtime confidante to reverse course on the election.
