Rudy is out, as of today, from his lawfirm after now-former partners forced him to resign in disgrace. It isn’t a huge shock, considering the staggering amount of damage Giuliana managed to do in such a short amount of time.
The NYT reports:
Firm partners had chafed over Mr. Giuliani’s public comments about payments that another of Mr. Trump’s lawyers, Michael D. Cohen, made to secure the silence of a pornographic film actress who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump. The president has denied her allegations. In interviews, Mr. Giuliani suggested that such payments were common at his firm.
Rudy has to have either broken an existing or established a totally new record in this situation. In a matter of days, he managed to perform a clueless on-air confirmation that pretty much everything Stormy Daniels had been saying about Trump is true, while proving every denial coming from the president has been a lie. AND if that isn’t enough, he went on to smear his own law firm by saying that such bribes and hush-money are “common at his own lawfirm.”
Imagine you’re a partner at the reasonably successful and prestigious lawfirm that, prior to a few weeks ago, was able to tout Rudy Giuliani as a partner. Now imagine after these days of disaster for Rudy, what kind of a sudden shame that having his name staining your business would be. It’s not hard to see why they’d be handing old uncle Rudy his hat and showing him to the door.
There’s literally nothing good and no positive spin you can put on this. Rudy dragged his own lawfirm through some very gross mud — basically comparing their practices to Donald Trump’s personal behavior — while essentially outing his client by calling him a liar. Folks, I’m not a lawyer, but even I know you don’t do this.
