Looks like Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump are getting a divorce
Over the weekend Rudy Giuliani made the bizarre announcement that he’s “more than willing” to go to prison, and that those who send him there will have to answer for it in the next life. At the time we wondered aloud why Rudy seemed to be giving up any hope of escaping what’s coming.
Now it looks like we’re starting to get an answer. Trump world mouthpiece Maggie Haberman is pointing to the amount of money that Trump’s phony political campaign is raising, and revealing that Rudy Giuliani’s camp is “aghast” that none of it is being used to pay for Rudy’s legal bills. Moreover, Haberman says that Rudy is “close to broke,” which helps explain why he’s become so pessimistic about his own future. Trump’s team is also claiming that Trump can’t pay Rudy’s legal bills without creating legal problems for Trump, while also accusing Rudy of taking actions that “a lawyer should have known were problematic.”
So there it is. Not only is Donald Trump keeping all the fraudulently fundraised money for himself while letting Rudy Giuliani go broke, his team is also vaguely suggesting that Giuliani is guilty. In other words, Trump and Rudy are getting a divorce.
This leaves us with one key question: did Rudy really mean it when he said he’s willing to rot in prison? If he cuts a deal against Trump, he could potentially end up with a quite lenient sentence. We’ll see if Rudy changes his tune once he’s arrested, which he seems to think is coming sooner rather than later.
