Rudy Giuliani was already headed to prison for taking dirty money from foreign governments. But on Monday, CNN released a recording of Giuliani pressuring the government of Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, while offering political favors in return – thus cementing that Rudy is going to prison for a long time.
So how is Rudy taking the news? Well, here’s what he tweeted after the incriminating tape surfaced:
This war was a proxy war. It can be best described by comparing it to a scene in “The Godfather” when Corleone explains to his consigliere, who was really behind the attempt to kill him and destroy his family: “Tattaglia is a pimp. He never could have outfought Santino … But I didn’t know until this day that it was Barzini all along.”
Substitute Hamas for Tattaglia and Iran for Barzini, and it becomes: “Hamas is a pimp. It never could have outfought Israel. But I didn’t know until this day that it was Iran all along.”
No really, that’s Rudy Giuliani’s response to finding out that the Feds have him nailed on so many kinds of crimes, he’ll spend the rest of his life in prison unless he cuts a cooperating plea deal for some degree of leniency. His brain is clearly broken. It’s anyone’s guess what he’ll do as far as a plea deal. But either way, he’ll lose.
