That way next time he is on CNN he wont be taking the liberal side as he usually does.

In seeking Giuliani’s testimony, Willis identified him as both a personal attorney for Trump and a lead attorney for his campaign. She wrote that he and others appeared at a state Senate committee meeting and presented a video that Giuliani said showed election workers producing “suitcases” of unlawful ballots from unknown sources, outside the view of election poll watchers. Within 24 hours of that Dec. 3, 2020, hearing, Raffensperger’s office had debunked the video. But Giuliani continued to make statements to the public and in subsequent legislative hearings claiming widespread voter fraud using the debunked video, Willis wrote.

Rudy, yelling fraud in public but admitting before a judge while under oath that "this is not fraud case"....and he continues with The Big Lie to this day....

https://time.com/5914377/donald-trump-no-evidence-fraud/

Two of the election workers seen in the video, Ruby Freeman and Wandrea “Shaye” Moss, said they faced relentless harassment online and in person after it was shown at a Dec. 3 Georgia legislative hearing where Giuliani appeared. At another hearing a week later, Giuliani said the footage showed the women “surreptitiously passing around USB ports as if they are vials of heroin or cocaine.” They actually were passing a piece of candy.

Rudy has become the ultimate MAGA-joke...holding press conferences in lumber yards, melting down on live TV, getting caught in bedrooms with supposedly 15 year old girls...

And we can't forget he's still under investigation for campaign finance violations that have already resulted in convictions and jail for his two pro-Russian Ukrainian business partners...

Time for Rudy to do a Michael Cohen and just fess up to all the criminality...he's already admitted he has kept an "insurance policy"....

What’s Gym Jordan gonna do to stop an investigation in Georgia? Besides, I thought the GOP was the party of law and order. Or does that not apply when the mob boss Don and his henchmen are implicated?

Graham is a total fraud. He’ll do anything for power. Remember what he said right after the insurrection?

It isn’t harrassment.

It’s investigating attempted election fraud. You made hundreds of posts previously telling us how supportive you were of investigating election fraud. All that time, effort and theorizing.

When the shoe is on the other foot and Republicans are now being investigated you lost interest. Why is that?

Lol, I don’t know what that means, but remember when Stacy Abram’s contested the Georgia elections and called them racist as well? So in other words, Dems can contest any elections under any circumstances and the right can’t. Interesting….

Not only him given the current climate in politics and watching this administration, I would say the thirst for wanting to hold onto power doesn’t just rest with Lindsey.

Out of all the people who colluded with donald and are in deep trouble, Rudy is the one who came out much much worse.

donald didn’t pay him for acting as his lawyer nor contributed to his legal fees and now rudy is unable to pay his ex wife and is being sued by her, his Florida properties are up for sale and it’s only a matter of time that he loses his Manhattan apartment.

All that for man who will soon go to prison for treason.

What a fall!!!

There is no way for you or me to know this. This an alleged allegation that the left continues to perpetuate without a shred of proof.

and now rudy is unable to pay his ex wife and is being sued by her, his Florida properties are up for sale and it’s only a matter of time that he loses his Manhattan apartment.

Yes, makes sense, when you are being sued into oblivion by the Fed government and use all of your liquid assets to by your personal legal fees to keep your head above water.

All that for man who will soon go to prison for treason.

No one is going to prison because that is indeed the tactic that the Feds often use, make you spend all of your life earnings and savings on legal fees and then when you’re financially ruined, then the dogs are called off. Typical and the usual Fed tactic.

I don’t remember Stacy Abrams pressuring the Georgia SOS to “find” extra votes to put her over the top. Which Trump did. It was recorded, and no amount of whataboutism will change that.

Last year Trump refused to pay his lawyer Giuliani.

As Rudy Giuliani's legal bills mount up in the face of a federal investigation and defamation suits, people close to him say that Trump should be helping ...

Trump also requested donations.

No, but she contested it to the end, claimed that the institution is racist. In the US you are allowed to have any nutty option you want. You don’t harass any political person or civilian because you don’t like how or what they think.

to “find” extra votes to put her over the top. Which Trump did. It was recorded, and no amount of whataboutism will change that.

whataboutism-aka: Dem caught hypocrisy.

You’re right. My bad.

No worries

I am glad you agree, poor poor rudy!

No one is going to prison 

donald is, and so is rudy. But different prisons, there are special ones for people convicted of treason!!!

Maybe he did. Who cares and why would the sick left media focus on something that petty? Just as sick as the media that wonder what flavor ice cream Biden likes, give me a break!

Rudy Guilianni said he can’t fly to Georgia to testify to the Grand Jury due to a medical procedure, and Fanni Willis says ‘why did you pay cash for three airline tickets to Europe in July?

And hey…take a bus…

Its difficult to believe rudy was a lawyer once.

He has to be the dumbest lawyer ever to not know that his travel will be monitored!!!

It’s not petty to rudy, he is losing his house, has no savings and the bitter ex wife wants to send him to prison.

Naw, we’re it not for him, the mafia would probably be the next strongest and most lethal force out there to contend with next alongside the Federal government.

He has to be the dumbest lawyer

No, he was the only Mayer that made NYC a decent and livable city, can’t say that anymore

It’s not petty to rudy, he is losing his house, has no savings and the bitter ex wife wants to send him to prison.

Sad, but a typical tactic the Feds use, if they can’t put you in prison on bogus charges the next step is to bankrupt you.

Is "Mayer" a special title? While he was Mayer, NY was attacked by the worse terrorist attack in US history.

Comparing the fed government to the mafia, that’s the depths the right has fallen to.

I don’t know Mr Mayer, but Rudy was known as the Mayor. He did well after 9/11 but other than that not really much.

The feds actually have good advice for that, don't commit crimes!

Pity rudy never took the advise!!!

He did well during. The corrupt police, 42nd street, muggings, homicide, graffiti on trains, dismantling the mafia, you could actually walk the streets of NYC from 1994-2001 with little angst.

The feds actually have good advice for that, don't commit crimes!

Unless your a liberal then all bets are off.

Umm no, rudy took credit but did little. Looking at him neck deep in corruption and treason, it’s easier to believe what people said about him.

Unless your a liberal then all bets are off.

The right wing extremists are whining that they cannot commit crimes anymore. Hilarious.

Perhaps Mr Giuliani should have heeded The Specials: A Message To You Rudy.

Not according to 77% of the nation, if the country is doing well, then the Dems would be winning primaries like crazy and they're not, not even a little.

Umm no, rudy took credit but did little.

Not according to historians and the city, it was Giuliani and later Bloomberg and after that, DeBlasio took the country back to pre-1994 fast forward, sane people can't leave NYC fast enough.

No—his great destiny was to be mayor, and mayor only. And I might even say: at that moment only, when the city needed someone like him. Remember how often people talked in 1992 and 1993 about giving up on the place. Within one short year, or even less, people weren’t saying that very much anymore. For all the Rudy- craziness that later ensued and that darkened his legacy—the bashing of police-shooting victims and Brooklyn Museum artists and ferret lovers and his second ex-wife and of course Hillary—it has to be acknowledged that he was the man for the moment. There probably won’t be a moment in New York quite that desperate again in our lifetimes. He helped make sure of it.

Looking at him neck deep in corruption and treason, it’s easier to believe what people said about him.

If you want to listen to the left bloodlust-obsessed crowd, perhaps.

The right wing extremists are whining that they cannot commit crimes anymore. Hilarious.

No, they are jubilant with joy and excitement because we know that November will usher in a brand new and sane era.

Giuliani, Stone, Bannon, Trump, etc. . . . It’s like ‘Whack-a-Whacko’. Instead of taking the 5th all the time or saying, “Well, it was on Facebook, so I thought it must be true.” They should just all plead insanity, because they’re a gang of lying wing-nuts.

Yeah I wonder if the FBI/DOJ lied about stealing Rudy's passport too but then had to return it?

-13 ( +2 / -15 )

They should just all plead insanity, because they’re a gang of lying wing-nuts.

So they should just roll over and give the government whatever and however, they want and then let the government do to them whatever they want because it makes the left feel better? Yeah, ok...

and to think just a few hours ago liberals were saying Trump is going to prison because his passports were seized. Hes gonna flee to Russia!!

then it was Trump was lying and the FBI/DOJ didnt really have them.

then they had them earlier but returned them already, so didnt technically "have" them.

this is the nonsense we are dealing with.

Prosecutors in Atlanta on Monday told lawyers for Rudy Giuliani that he’s a target of their criminal investigation into possible illegal attempts by then-President Donald Trump and others to interfere in the 2020 general election in Georgia.

Not according to historians

Not really, though the right wing extremists do have an alternate history!!!

If you want to listen to the left bloodlust-obsessed crowd, perhaps.

You should listen less to the bigoted murderous right wing extremists , might open up your mind.

No, they are jubilant with joy and excitement because we know that November will usher in a brand new and sane era.

When Nov turns out to be a big disappointment for the GOP because their leader couldn't help himself from committing treason, it will be fun.

That a boy and women do exist? That social economic government dependency has destroyed the black communities? That you need fossil fuels to create renewable energy? Or that funding pushing for more police and supporting them reduces crime? Yeah, just horrible history...

You should listen less to the bigoted murderous right wing extremists , might open up your mind.

Not compared to the liberal policies that have done a lot worse, just check the polls.

Lots of defense for Giuliani here - so please explain these to us...

As this article outlines, Rudy was one of the first to support Trump's Big Lie that Trump won the election and that there was "massive fraud".....

So why did he admit before a judge when under oath and could be cited for perjury and contempt, that "This is not a fraud case"?

https://time.com/5914377/donald-trump-no-evidence-fraud/

And why did he admit before the Repub Arizona Speaker that "'We've got lots of theories, we just don't have the evidence"?

https://www.businessinsider.com/rudy-giuliani-voter-fraud-evidence-rusty-bowers-testimony-jan6-committee-2022-6

In addition, why was Giuliani in business with a pro-Russian Ukrainian - who has been tried, convicted and sentenced to jail for campaign finance violations - to include funneling money from Russia?

Trump drowned in a swamp of his own making and failed to drain anything other than people's bank accounts.

The Dems mock Trump as well as the average voter.

Trump proved what a nasty person he was.

And the Americans have seen how nasty this admin as well as the DOJ is.

He mocked critics, and he fan base loved it. 

No difference from the left loving it when the Fed and their acolytes stick it to Trump and his circle.

They're just mad now, because they've got glass jaws and can't take it as good as they give it.

Well, in your own words, “fortunately justice doesn’t work that way”. You can’t build a legal case based on conspiracy theories.

Should never be disrespectful towards other people and refrain from mocking them. If any conservative did that about any leftist political leader the Mods wouldn't tolerate it,
