Rudy Giuliani Represented Donald Trump for Free
Embattled ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s name and reputation have been completely destroyed as a direct result of him representing former President Donald Trump in his foredoomed quest to overturn the 2020 election. And yet, with all the humiliation and professional hell to which he has subjected himself, Giuliani admitted in a recent court deposition that he did Trump’s bidding – and ruined his own life – for free.
According to case documents that were obtained and published by Business Insider on Friday, Giuliani – who is only one of the numerous Trump lackeys being sued for defamation by Dominion Voting Systems – “testified that he represented President Donald Trump for free after the 2020 election.”
Not only that, but Giuliani also insisted that he did so because Trump told him to. The only payments Giuliani acknowledged receiving from Trump were expense reimbursements.
Per Business Insider‘s reporting:
An executive for Dominion Voting Systems, Eric Coomer, subsequently brought defamation lawsuits against Giuliani, the former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, alleging that they knowingly spread false information about his involvement in election fraud.
According to a newly released deposition transcript, Coomer’s attorney Charles Cain asked Giuliani whether he was ever paid to represent the Trump campaign. Cain noted that Giuliani said in a conspiracy-theory-filled November 19 press conference that he was representing both Trump personally and the Trump campaign.
Giuliani replied that he was not paid to represent the campaign and had been reimbursed for only his expenses, according to the transcript. Cain then asked Giuliani why he would represent the Trump campaign without compensation.
‘The president — the president ordered me to do it,’ Giuliani said.
What makes this confession even more remarkable is that in the days following Trump’s landslide loss to President Joe Biden, Giuliani had demanded that Trump pay him $20,000 per day, The New York Times reported in May.
Clearly, that did not pan out.
Every man has his price. In this case, Trump got exactly what he paid for.
