Donald Trump values loyalty above almost everything else. And for that News Block, he has kept Rudy Giuliani for quite some time.
This despite the fact that the former mayor of New York City has become an embarrassingly clumsy one. And Giuliani wants to be paid for his failed efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.
According to Maggie Haberman, advisers tell Trump that paying his former lawyer is not an option. In fact, the New York Times writer reports, they want me to cut Giuliani off entirely.
Haberman tweeted on Sunday, “Giuliani’s allies are looking at Trump’s dollars, even if it’s not $ 82 million, and they’re horrified that Trump isn’t helping Giuliani with legal fees. Giuliani’s friends say he’s saying he’s on the brink of bankruptcy, and his interview with Melissa Russo makes it clear that he knows he is in legal danger. “

The reporter continued, “Trump’s advisers have made it clear that they see no mechanism to pay Giuliani’s legal bills that is not problematic for Trump, and they believe Giuliani took steps that an attorney should have known were problematic, even if the client wanted it. But this is noteworthy in the context of Trump having a previous attorney who pleaded guilty and later cooperated with an investigation into Trump. “
But this is of note in the context of Trump having had a previous lawyer who pleaded guilty and then cooperated with an investigation into Trump.

Despite poor results, Giuliani has been unfailingly loyal to Trump. However, the former president has never been shy about isolating people when they are no longer useful.
