Cassidy Hutchinson delivered so many bombshells during her public testimony on Tuesday, it was almost overlooked when she revealed that Rudy Giuliani and others sought Trump pardons. But leave it to Rudy to take the reins and steer the whole thing right into a ditch.
Giuliani tweeted this: “The last witness was a reckless liar. Contrary to her false testimony she was never present when I asked for a pardon.” Wait a minute here. This very much reads like Giuliani is confessing that he did seek a pardon, but claiming that Hutchinson wasn’t in the room when it happened.
Not surprisingly, Rudy ended up deleting the tweet. He replaced it with this: “Once again the January 6 Committee of ‘Russian Collusion’ Liars suborned perjury from Cassidy Hutchinson. I specifically told President Trump I did not want or need a pardon. I,also,have witnesses to corroborate that she and the Committee are perpetrating yet another lie.”
Okay, so now Rudy is saying that he did not seek a pardon. It also appears that Giuliani’s space bar on his keyboard is still malfunctioning, but that’s a story for another day. And if he has corroborating witnesses, where are they? Why doesn’t he just have them announce themselves? Is it because they only exist in his head?
