Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City and personal attorney to former President Donald Trump, recently conducted an interview on Newsmax where he said that the efforts to discredit Trump and his allies runs deep into state and federal prosecutors and even has extended its reach into the GOP.
“We have the proof that everything that I said was based on the testimony of other people,”Giuliani said during his chat on the “Greg Kelly Reports” program, speaking on the New York appeals court’s decision to suspend his license to practice law in the state. This same suspension was then picked up by Washington, D.C., which stated that it would last until the situation in New York was resolved.
“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,” Giuliani added.
The former mayor stated that the 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.”
The personal attorney for the former president stated that his experience as a lawyer and prosecutor trumps that of the individuals who have taken up the cause of having 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,” Giuliani went on to say, adding, “Really, really sad people. It’s a shame the lawyers failed themselves like that.”
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 to show host Greg 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 in the book Giuliani was referring to included RNC legal counsel Justin Riemer rejecting Trump’s attempts to contest the election amid allegations of voter fraud, saying Republicans would be better off raising money for the GOP with Trump out of the White House.
“This one happens to be true,” Giuliani explained. “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.”
