Rudy Giuliani Is in ‘Deep Shit’

Rudy Giuliani insists the FBI raid on his apartment was a total miscarriage of justice. His Trumpy allies swear the feds had no reason at all to execute a search warrant on his home.

George Conway, a former top Republican lawyer, has a slightly different take.

“I think he’s in deep shit,” Conway tells Molly Jong-Fast on the latest episode of The New Abnormal.

“The Justice Department doesn’t like to execute search warrants on lawyers, right? And the reason why they don’t like that is because they don’t want to get into messy disputes about attorney-client privilege… So they basically, if there’s a way to get evidence without going to a lawyer there, it’s basically incumbent upon them to do that. And if they ever seek to execute a search warrant on a lawyer, they have to go to the Main Justice [the headquarters of the Justice Department] and get permission from senior people in the criminal division on Pennsylvania Avenue,” adds Conway, who has famously spent the past few years as an anti-Trumpist activist.

“That tells you a lot here. Because even though there’s a probable cause standard for any search warrant—where you have to show that there was probable cause that a crime was committed and that there’s a basis to believe that the executing the search warrant will provide evidence of that crime—in this case, they had to do much, much more than that,” Conway continues. “And this guy was the former lawyer to a president of the United States while he was president. The people in Main Justice would not have authorized this search warrant unless there was a pretty good record.”

Rudy has now turned to Alan Dershowitz for some legal advice. That may not prove to be the wisest move, Conway says.

“Dershowitz is a smart guy, but he’s off. He’s been off the rails for a long time... In the first impeachment trial, Dershowitz made crazy arguments, to the effect that if the president does something, it’s for the benefit of the nation and therefore can’t be a crime, it can’t be impeachable. Which was just insane,” Conway adds. “And now he’s arguing that lawyers are immune from the execution of a search warrant, and that’s just not true either.”

Rudy, Four Seasons Landscaping phoned and asked could they have some.

Rudy should have remembered the saying about being hoisted on one's own petard.

Exactly what is that nitwit accused of? In deep shit says nothing to me.

Dear future cellmate of Rudy at whatever Minimum Security Federal Prison he ends up in:

Pack a gas mask and some Beano. Rudy is known to be a nasty farter. Big, juicy farts that he pretends didn't happen.

Good luck.

Sincerely, Jenna Ellis

Take him down. I think he will plead dementia when the time comes - but this sack needs to get some karma for being the nasty, cruel ass who has ruined millions of lives as a blindly ambitious prosecutor, as a mayor who used “law and order” as an excuse to trample civil liberties in NYC and destroy nightlife - and finally as a Trump enabler.

Mock the flop.

Mayor McSleaze won't spend a day behind bars. He'll get that old/fat Covid exemption and be confined to one of his mansions.

Or else he'll 'die' like Epstein (disappear).

Secretary: Mr Prezzident, Rudy is on the phone.

DJT: I don't know her.

Ghouliani's reckoning cannot come soon enough; I don't necessarily disagree with R10 that he'll get some sort of COVID house arrest kind thing, but just the idea of him being stripped of his law license & branded a felon brings a smile to my face

He should be put in a nicely socially distanced cell. But why can't every old/fat get the covid exit too then?

by Anonymousreply 1405/04/2021

Nothing will happen, sadly.

Someone should alert Rudy that the Trump bus is fast approaching. We all know what happens to the idiots when Trump has no use for them., get thrown under the bus.

by Anonymousreply 1705/05/2021

I wouldn't bet on that, R15.

by Anonymousreply 1805/05/2021

Sadly, nothing is going to happen. Nobody is going to jail. Trump will still live at his resort in a dark room drinking Diet Cokes. There will be no retributions. There will be nothing done about the traitor's insurection.

Look for a republic party resurgence of absolute insanity that will make what they do now look absolutely tame in comparison in the next three years. Now would be the time to make plans for leaving the country by 2024. No joke.

The big difference between the recent past and now is that we have a functioning and independent DOJ. Fingers crossed they really will be able to bring these criminals to, well, justice.

I was heartened by Judge Barrett making demands of the DOJ, re Barr's attempts to quash and/or redefine the Mueller Report. Let's hope she gets what she wants. If she does, I'd take it as a VERY good sign that the next year or so will be filled with action.

Oh, fuck off, R19. Your doomsday conjecture is the DL euivalent of Debbie Downer. No joke.

Tell you what, R19--YOU leave. We'll tell you when it's safe to come back.

Nice try, Boris. We are going to stay and fight for the rule of law and locking up these criminals. We're not going to tuck our tails between our legs and run for the hills. People fought and died for democracy, we won't give it up that easily.

by Anonymousreply 2305/05/2021

If the Repugs take control the the House and Senate in 2022, this country will resemble North Korea where each household, , must have a photo of Dear Leader in the house. We will have to purchase a how to book on the Republican's correct way of kissing Trump's ass.

Darling, R24, have another drink.
