Rudy Giuliani Is Said To Be Nearly Bankrupt, And Trump Has Barred Him From Entering The White House.

Sources tell The New York Times that Donald Trump's former personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is nearly bankrupt, and Trump doesn't seem to care.

According to New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman, Giuliani is currently struggling under a mountain of legal fees as he tries to fend off a major federal investigation and answer a $1.3 billion lawsuit, while Trump isn't contributing a dime of the millions he's raised in his ongoing battle against a legitimate election.

According to Haberman, Giuliani's supporters are "surprised" that Trump isn't assisting, given that many of his activities were carried out on Trump's behalf to promote the former president's "Big Lie" of a rigged election.

But, according to Haberman, helping Giuliani is “problematic” for the former president (and certainly for his bank account), and Giuliani should have known better than to engage in some of his activities.

Friends say Giuliani is close to broke, and his interview with @MelissaRusso4NY makes clear he knows he is in legal jeopardy https://t.co/mv9QtedbMR — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) August 1, 2021

Trump aides have made it clear that they see no way to pay Giuliani's legal bills that isn't problematic for Trump, and they believe Giuliani took actions that a lawyer should have known were problematic, even if the client wanted it. — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) August 1, 2021

The Washington Post also reported earlier this year that Trump had fired his attorney, despite the fact that Giuliani had traveled the country promoting Trump's story of a stolen election. Trump was unhappy with Giuliani's demand for $20,000 per day in fees, and "privately expressed concern" about some of Giuliani's moves, according to sources.

According to the Post, Trump not only refused to pay Giuliani's legal fees, but he also told aides that all reimbursement requests for travel and other expenses had to go through him.

Giuliani, who has been barred from practicing law in New York and Washington, D.C., is currently embroiled in a $1.3 billion lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems against him.

The suit accuses Giuliani of defamation by conducting a “viral disinformation campaign about Dominion” based on “demonstrably false” allegations, in part to enrich himself through legal fees and a podcast. Giuliani’s fact-free attack on Dominion was part of his and Trump’s baseless narrative about a rigged election.

The FBI is also looking into Giuliani's activities in Ukraine on behalf of certain officials — and Trump — as part of Trump's strategy to stall Congress-approved military aid to Ukraine in order to pressure officials into launching a bogus investigation into Joe Biden, which led to the former president's first impeachment.

According to audio recordings released in June, Giuliani repeatedly suggested to Ukrainian officials that the country could have a “better relationship” with the US if the country’s president opened a Biden investigation in 2019.

In an interview with NBC New York on Friday, Giuliani called the investigation "lawless," and said everything he did was for his client, Donald Trump.

“If they want to put me in jail, I am more than willing to go, and if they do, they will suffer the consequences in heaven,” he declared.

In June, a New York state appellate court ruled that Giuliani would be barred from practicing law in the state for making "false and misleading statements" about the 2020 election, pending further investigation.

“The gravity of respondent’s uncontroverted misconduct cannot be overstated,” the court wrote in its 33-page decision, adding that “this country is being torn apart by ongoing attacks on the legitimacy of the 2020 election.”
