Rudy Giuliani Set Up a Fundraising Page for His Legal Defense. It Is At .001% Of Its Goal
Being under federal investigation is not only incredibly stressful, it is also incredibly expensive. Thanks to the work he did for Donald Trump, the Feds are taking a close look at Rudy Giuliani. And since the former New York City mayor was stiffed by the former president, he is having some significant money issues.
With no money coming in from Trump, Giuliani resorted to raising his legal fees through online crowdfunding. The venture is not going well for him, though. The page is currently at .001% of its $5 million dollar goal.
Reuters Jan Wolfe tweeted, “Rudy Giuliani’s legal defense fund only has 92 online donations so far, totaling less than $8,000. They set a goal of $5 million by late August. And at this rate they won’t hit $100,000 by then.”

Giuliani had previously complained about the financial hardship of a federal investigation. And his son called for Trump to use his fundraising money to help. Andrew Giuliani said in May, “I think all those Americans that donated after Nov. 3, they were donating for the legal defense fund. My father ran the legal team at that point. So I think it’s very easy to make a very strong case for the fact that he and all the lawyers that worked on there should be indemnified… I would find it highly irregular if the president’s lead counsel did not get indemnified.”
