Democrat Rep. Blasts ‘Deplorable’ Giuliani: ‘Hard to Believe He Ever Was a Serious U.S. Attorney’

Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) slammed Rudy Giuliani for his blistering attacks on prosecutors and FBI agents investigating the Trump administration, stupefied as to how he’d ever served as an attorney. “I’m so disgusted by Rudy Giuliani and his unleashed nature,” she told MSNBC’s Alex Witt Sunday. “It is hard to believe that he ever was a serious U.S. attorney.” Speier was responding to claims made by Giuliani on Saturday that investigators were motivated by their anger over President Donald Trump‘s election and that they belong in a psychiatric ward. “To throw that kind of dirt around, to be so demeaning to people that have served our country with distinction is deplorable to me,” Speier said. The congresswoman, who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, also addressed The Washington Post‘s new report revealing Trump confidante Roger Stone met with a Russian who offered him dirt on Hillary Clinton Continue reading "Democrat Rep.

Rudy Giuliani: Trump Will Not Issue Any Pardons in Mueller Investigation

On State of the Union on Sunday, host Jake Tapper asked Trump attorney and former Mayor Rudy Giuliani whether President Trump would pardon Paul Manafort, who was sent to jail after his bail was revoked on pending charges. Tapper asked Giuiliani directly about it. “If Manfort is convicted, will President Trump pardon him?” Giuliani responded equally directly, and covered more ground than just Manafort. “The President is not going to issue any pardons in this investigation, he said. He did, however, point out that once the investigation is complete and all charges have been settled, the President still has the power to take action. “When it’s over? Hey, he’s the President of the United States,” said Giuliani. “He retains his pardon power.” The former New York City Mayor told Tapper that pardons, as well as firings, would “just cloud what is becoming a very clear picture of Continue reading "Rudy Giuliani: Trump Will Not Issue Any Pardons in Mueller Investigation"

WATCH: Giuliani Says Trump Investigators Should Be in a Psych Ward

Rudy Giuliani spoke at a campaign rally in New York on Saturday, and said that FBI agents investigating President Donald Trump should be in a psychiatric ward instead of working the case against his client.

Dan Donovan, and made remarks on the current special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign’s Russia ties. “I’m very proud because he’s got that spirit,” Giuliani said of Trump, according to CNN. “My God, nothing gets him down.

Rudy Giuliani is Not Exactly Sorry He Called Joe Biden a ‘Mentally Deficient Idiot’

On Friday, President Donald Trump‘s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani called former Vice President Joe Biden a “mentally deficient idiot.” He also suggested Biden was “old.” “I’m calling Joe Biden a mentally deficient idiot,” Giuliani said, claiming Biden finished at the bottom of his class in law school. “He’s also too old. He’s four years older than Trump,” Giuliani, not exactly a spring chicken, added during an interview with Huffington Post. Yet, speaking to Chris Cuomo Friday night, Giuliani was less than contrite about his insulting remarks. “Joe was last in his law school class,” Giuliani replied, prompting Cuomo to say that was not exactly true. “He had a plagiarism problem in law school and as a senator,” he said, continuing his bashing of Biden. Then, when Cuomo asked why he said that, Giuliani replied, “I just went after him because they asked me a question, I gave Continue reading "Rudy Giuliani is Not Exactly Sorry He Called Joe Biden a ‘Mentally Deficient Idiot’"

CNN’s Toobin: ‘So Corrupt and Unethical’ for Giuliani to Make Those Comments About Pardons

CNN”s Jeffrey Toobin went off on Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani for his comments about potential pardons President Trump could issue once the Mueller probe is over. Giuliani went ahead and just kind of casually threw out the idea of pardoning people today, saying, “When the whole thing is over, things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons.” Toobin told Wolf Blitzer Giuliani’s comments are pretty shocking:
“It is so corrupt and unethical what Giuliani said. You know, we are in an area here that is literally unprecedented, because not that many people in American life have the power to give a pardon, so the idea Continue reading "CNN’s Toobin: ‘So Corrupt and Unethical’ for Giuliani to Make Those Comments About Pardons"

Giuliani Tries to Clarify Comments About Potential Trump Pardons

Maybe a lawyer for the President of the United States should just stop spouting off. Since joining the Trump legal team, Rudy Giuliani has made a number of eyebrow-raising comments only to scramble to walk them back later. Today’s latest example concerns the rather stunning comments Giuliani made about potential pardons, telling the New York Daily News, “When the whole thing is over, things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons.” Giuliani has now sent two different responses to two different reporters to clarify these comments:

Rudy Giuliani Drops Bombshell on Mueller Probe: ‘Things Might Get Cleaned up with Some Presidential Pardons’

On Friday, President Donald Trump‘s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani finally admitted it. Despite his repeated claims that Trump has done nothing wrong, he is already thinking about pardons. “When the whole thing is over, things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons,” the former New York mayor told the Daily News just after the news broke that Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort was going to be spending the night in a jail cell tonight. Giuliani also seemed to not understand why Manafort was now behind bars, noting it wasn’t like he was trying to kill witnesses or anything. “I don’t understand the justification for putting him in jail,” Giuliani said. “You put a guy in jail if he’s trying to kill witnesses, not just talking to witnesses.” For the record, according to the New York Times Manafort is in jail because, “A federal judge revoked Paul Continue reading "Rudy Giuliani Drops Bombshell on Mueller Probe: ‘Things Might Get Cleaned up with Some Presidential Pardons’"
