Appearing on “America’s News GQ” Saturday morning, Giuliani said that despite widespread reports of his impending legal peril, he was not the least bit worried about the prospect of being indicted.
Asked by host Ed Henry whether he’d spoken to President Trump about the investigation into his foreign business deals, Giuliani provided a distressing response.
You can assume that I talk to him early and often and have a very very good relationship with him,” Giuliani said of Trump.
“So…[Rudy Giuliani] is extorting [the President] to make sure Trump doesn’t throw Rudy under the bus for shaking down Ukraine to get dirt for a political campaign,” former federal prosecutor and CNN legal analyst Mimi Rocah said of Giuliani’s “insurance” statement.
@RudyGiuliani is extorting @realDonaldTrump to make sure Trump doesn’t throw Rudy under the bus for shaking down Ukraine to get dirt for a political campaign.
I remember when lawyers talking about insurance from clients just meant malpractice insurance, but it doesn’t sound like that’s what Rudy has in mind.
