Former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, sat down with Newsmax for a chat where he stated that current efforts being made to discredit Trump and those who are connected to him run very deep into both state and federal prosecutors and yes, even into the Republican Party itself.
“We have the proof that everything that I said was based on the testimony of other people,” Giuliani said during his interview on the Monday edition of “Greg Kelly Reports” speaking of a New York appeals court’s suspension in June of his license to practice law, which was then picked up by the District of Columbia last week. Which is in effect until New York’s suspension has been settled.
“They never bothered to look at a single affidavit. I submitted my own affidavit, explaining the basis for what I said, and I also said we have, you know, 300 affidavits and any of them are available to you, if you want to check on what I’m saying,” he added.
Giuliani then told host Greg Kelly that the appeal’s court’s “intellectual dishonesty of the opinion is shocking.”
“They may believe I didn’t say that, and they just concluded that I hadn’t given them [the affidavits],” Giuliani went on to say. “The intellectual dishonesty of the opinion is shocking.”
Giuliani said his experience as a lawyer and prosecutor trumps that of those who have led the charge to have him suspended without hearing his case.
“It is actually amazing as a lawyer of 50 years who has a career that I think is far more accomplished than any of them; I’d like to know what they did for the city and country that is comparable to what I did,” the former New York City mayor said.
“Really, really sad people. It’s a shame the lawyers failed themselves like that,” he went on to add.
Giuliani also confirmed the veracity — “100%, sure, absolutely true” — of at least one of the claims in Michael Wolff’s third critical exposé of the administration to be released Tuesday, “Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency.”
The claims include an effort by members of the Republican National Committee under chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, niece of Trump critic Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, working to undermine Trump amid election fraud challenges after the 2020 presidential election.
“I’ve seen excerpts from Wolff’s book,” Giuliani said during his conversation with Kelly. “Probably every other one [of the reports] that I saw was false. This happens to be true, so I guess even a confirmed liar can tell the truth occasionally.”
The claim that Giuliani is referring to included Justin Riemer, who is a member of the legal counsel for the RNC, rejecting the former president’s attempts to contest the 2020 election amid all of the allegations of voter fraud, stating that the GOP would be better off just raising money for the party with Trump no longer in the White House.
“This one happens to be true,” Giuliani revealed. “Wolff got a lot of his information from some of the Republicans that were the biggest to trying to undermine him, and they were actually closer to President Trump than this guy.”
