President Trump’s pet goblin attorney Rudy Giuliani continues to caper in front of news cameras on a weekly basis, spewing outright lies and accidental admissions, muddying the waters for Trump while dragging the half-dead carcass of his own reputation behind him.
The former mayor’s theatrics might actually be endearing — in the way a confused grandfather cooing gibberish to his grandchildren can be endearing — if not for the fact that his actions are deeply damaging to the Republic.
While it’s still unclear whether Giuliani’s goose-stepping loyalty to Trump is the result of some hope for personal advancement or simply a symptom of a rapidly deteriorating mind, what is clear is that he has no interest in the truth.
The latest bout of paranoia-tinged nonsense to dribble out of his mouth was captured by Sky News. While golfing at a course owned by Trump, Giuliani addressed the wave of bad news to hit the administration this week, namely the convictions of Trump’s longtime attorney Michael Cohen and his former campaign manager Paul Manafort.
When asked whether or not Trump’s impeachment is inevitable, Giuliani trotted out a string of misinformation followed by a veiled threat.
“I think It’s inevitable that he won’t. President Trump has been completely cleared,” he erroneously stated. In reality, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is powering along at full steam, with no indications of ending soon.
“You have this Cohen guy, he doesn’t know anything about Russian collusion, doesn’t know anything about obstruction. He’s a massive liar,” Giuliani added, conveniently ignoring the fact that this “massive liar” was one of Trump’s most trusted, closest associates for over a decade.
“If anything it’s turned very much in the president’s favor. I think impeachment would be totally horrible. I mean, there’s no reason. He didn’t collude with the Russians, he didn’t obstruct justice. Everything Cohen’s said has been disproved. You could only impeach for political reasons and the American people would revolt against that,” he said.
It bears pointing out that it has yet to be revealed whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, and the question of obstruction of justice is still very much up in the air. As for Giuliani’s final point — that the American people would “revolt” to protect Trump — it can’t be overstated how unlikely that is. The majority of Americans despise the president, and cannot wait to boot him out of office.
