Earlier this week the January 6th Committee aired testimony of Jason Miller insisting that Rudy Giuliani was drunk at the time he was urging Donald Trump to commit election crimes. Giuliani fired back by tweeting that he was not drunk, before apparently realizing that he was making things even worse by essentially insisting he was fully sober during his crime spree.

Now Rudy appears to have figured out that he really is in too much legal trouble to keep arrogantly running his mouth. During today’s public hearing, it was revealed that when Giuliani gave a speech urging Mike Pence to overthrow the election results, he already knew that Pence had no such ability. This matters because if Rudy didn’t even believe in the rationale that he was publicly pushing at the time he was committing these crimes, it’ll make it easier to convict him.

So it’s notable that when Rudy Giuliani held a press conference today for his son’s doomed political campaign, and Rudy was asked about today’s revelations, he went quiet for a moment and then said “I shouldn’t really talk about that.”

Rudy is someone who hasn’t been able to shut up about anything of late. Even when it comes to the crimes he’s been caught committing, he appears to truly believe that if he babbles incoherently about conspiracy theories, it’ll somehow get him off the hook.

   

But now Rudy is suddenly deleting tweets, and declining to comment on the latest criminal allegations against him. It’s as if he’s finally scared enough to realize he needs to shut up. We’ll see how long it lasts. But for now, Rudy appears to be stunned into silence when it comes to the criminal case against him.
