The Amazing (and Terrible) Legal Services of Rudy Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City and current attorney to President Donald Trump, has done some amazing things in his life, but he has also done some terrible things in his life. Rudy Giuliani’s done both at the same time! Indeed, Rudy Giuliani has never met a crime Rudy Giuliani wouldn’t try to take credit for solving, and he’s never met an ethics violation that he wouldn’t try to make up an excuse for, but hey at least it gives us something to talk about!

While Donald Trump and his family benefited handsomely from America’s 2008 financial crisis, Rudy Giuliani forgot to pay one of the people who made his empire possible.

The U.S. President-elect is currently engaged in a petty feud with Rudy Giuliani over how much cash he owes the ex-mayor for legal services rendered, with Trump insisting he only needs to pay a part of what was billed and Giuliani countering that it’s $8 million or $9 million. Let’s do some math! First off, if we go with $8 million that would be $4,166 per hour.

Who Pays For Lawyer Fees In Civil Cases?

If a person is a defendant in a civil case, the plaintiff hands to pay for the legal costs and fees that they incur during the trial. An out-of-court settlement can include these costs but it would not be expected. For example,

if Sally was taken to court because of some vandalism she did on Freddy’s house and settled outside of court, she would only have had to pay what she agreed upon–but if they went through with the lawsuit then Freddy would have been responsible for paying Sally’s lawyer fees as well as his own.

Rudy Giuliani’s Former Firm Received Millions from NYC

In 2006, the New York Times reported that Rudolph W. Giuliani Partners, LLP received about $4 million for legal services from the New York City’s Law Department in 2005 alone.

This number does not include payments to other law firms during that time frame. In response to an inquiry about this pay-to-play scheme by one of the founders of the Public Accountability Initiative and a founding member of Take Back Our Democracy!, Mr. Rudolph W. Giuliani sent this statement: Since 2008, we have terminated any relationships with the NYC government.

At Least Some Of That Money Went To Lobbying

Mr. Trump initially appeared to be poised to stick with his old, go-to defense team, Mr. Dowd and Jay Sekulow. But as the special counsel’s investigation was moving faster than expected and national scrutiny intensified, Rudy Giuliani added another layer: a combative legal team that would take on the warrior mentality that has defined Mr. Trump’s presidency so far. His attorney general had recused himself;

Vice President Mike Pence seemed too detached; Stephen K. Bannon had too many potential conflicts because of his time as chairman of Breitbart News; Kellyanne Conway was not an experienced litigator.

In 2008, when a diverse group of 20 African-American and Latino clergymen had endorsed Hillary Clinton for President in The New York Times and the mayor leaped to her defense, several members issued press releases declaring that they had been misled by Giuliani.

He was not straightforward with us, said Rev. B. Herbert Martin Sr., chairman of the Louisiana chapter of Concerned Black Clergy for Justice. We thought Rudy Giuliani was a true champion. Now it’s impossible to find an African-American pastor who is voting for him. Not surprisingly, Giuliani has pulled off a neat political trick by consolidating his support among evangelical Christians while cutting himself off from many other voting blocs.

He Has Been Helping Countries Fight U.S. Tobacco Litigation

Giuliani’s career as law and political science major at Manhattan College and New York University led him to work for the House Un-American Activities Committee, which was concerned with communist activities, and eventually for the Justice Department.

After that stint, he entered private practice in New York City. It was in this capacity that he established himself as a fierce defender of corporate America against what were perceived as encroachments on their business by liberals and other adversaries.

One can certainly take issue with his methods on a philosophical level — even former employees who find themselves troubled by them — but they are still remarkably effective. For example, when Giuliani became aware that Indonesia had developed an aggressive program aimed at restricting or banning the U.S.

And Has Been A Key Figure In The World Of Pay-To-Play Influence

Rudy Giuliani’s past is littered with crimes, errors, and various other shenanigans. In 1998, he was fined $285,000 for breaching election campaign finance laws.

More recently, he accepted money from Saudi Arabia to speak at an event they held in the U.S., which led him to have to register as a foreign agent with the Department of Justice because of Saudi Arabia’s status as a foreign power.

Furthermore, one has to wonder about his mental state when Rudy Giuliani went on Fox News this week and claimed that had he been attorney general instead of Jeff Sessions that there would have been no Russia investigation. Rudy Giuliani also said that Donald Trump is more deserving of praise than any president since Abraham Lincoln. It sounds like Mr.

What Is Donald Trump’s Connection To This?

Donald Trump has found himself in a hot water after getting crossways with former New Yorker Mayor Rudy Giuliani. When Giuliani left office, he was offered a deal by the city to purchase his law firm for $2 million. The letter even went on to state that the contract was good for 10 years, and if at any point it would expire, Giuliani would be allowed to exercise an option to renew the agreement.

Unfortunately, no deal was ever made and now Trump is going on Fox News saying Don’t worry about this legal stuff – I’ll fix it! In true Donald Trump fashion though, Rudy Giuliani’s got quite a laugh out of it. As far as repercussions go though? Hopefully, they won’t be too bad, but we will keep you updated!
