Giuliani Has Two Weeks To Pay His Ex-Wife $225,000 Or He’s Going To Jail

The long downward spiral that is the life of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani continued Friday when a judge told him that if he doesn’t pay his ex-wife the $225,000 he owes her within the next 14 days, he will be an inmate.

NBC News New York reports that Judge Michael Katz found Giuliani in contempt of court and informed him has two weeks to fork over the money — along with $10,000 in attorney’s fees.

Judith Giuliani had asked the judge to hold her former husband in contempt for falling behind on his payments under their 2019 divorce settlement.

During Giuliani’s last court appearance, he told the judge that his third wife’s claim that he owes her $260,000 is a “gross exaggeration” and he really owes her about $50,000.

“I do owe her money but I don’t owe her $260,000,” Giuliani, a legal adviser to former President Donald Trump, told the judge in state court.

The judge also noted that Giuliani had even failed to file paperwork in response to his ex-wife’s allegations. Rather than own up to his failure, Rudy whined:

“I’m being sued in ten different cases. I’m getting ready for two massive hearings. I don’t know how to emphasize to you the pressures.”

Of course, Giuliani wouldn’t be facing so many legal problems if he hadn’t involved himself in trying to overturn the 2020 presidential election on behalf of failed, one-term former president Donald Trump, helped plan a failed coup, been part of a scheme to name fake electors in key battleground states, and repeatedly tried to dig up dirt on President Joe Biden so he could help Trump win with the same sort of tactics Russia used in 2016 help guarantee the twice-impeached ex-president won against Hillary Clinton.

Rudy needs to realize that the only way out for him is to write a tell-all book, point the finger at Trump, and hope for a bestseller. Otherwise, he’s going to wind up behind bars without even enough loose change to make a phone call once a week from his cell.

Donald Trump The Trump Adminstration WTF?!

Rudy Wanted A Full Pardon AND The Medal Of Freedom Before Trump Left Office: Report

In the last days of the Trump administration, Rudy Giuliani sent a request to then-president Donald Trump: I need a pardon for everything illegal I’ve done for you and also the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Talk about greedy!

That’s one of the revelations in a new book from Andrew Kirtzman entitled Giuliani: The Rise and Tragic Fall of America’s Mayor, which will be released on September 13.

The New York Times has seen an advance copy of the book and reports:

An associate of Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer, tried to pass a message to Mr. Trump asking him to grant Mr. Giuliani a “general pardon” and the Presidential Medal of Freedom just after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, according to a new book.

The associate, Maria Ryan, also pleaded for Mr. Giuliani to be paid for his services and sent a different note seeking tens of thousands of dollars for herself, according to the book.

Of course, as Maggie Haberman notes, Giuliani has sworn up and down that he never asked for a pardon, remarking back in June:

“The January 6 Witch Hunt Cabal has now exceeded even its prior fraudulent. The last witness was a reckless liar. Contrary to her false testimony she was never present when I asked for a pardon.”

“Actually, I told the President I did not want or need one.”

Rudy later deleted those tweeted denials, but not before screenshots were taken:

So Rudy didn’t ask for a pardon, and he never needed one, but he decided to send a request for one through an intermediary. Got that? Sounds a lot like the kind of tracking and backtracking — followed by several hundred lies — that Donald himself is famous (or infamous) for, no matter what the topic.

Fortunately, the former New York City mayor didn’t get his pardon and can still be charged for the many crimes he’s suspected of having committed. Maybe when he sees he’s facing the rest of his life behind bars, he’ll start talking and implicate Trump.

Crime Donald Trump WTF?!

Rudy Giuliani Tells Right-Wing Host He Fears The Government May Try To Kill Trump

Disgraced former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that he’s very afraid the U.S. government is going to try and kill one-term ex-president Donald Trump.

Speaking to Newsmax about Trump being caught red-handed by the FBI with boxes of classified and top secret documents, one of the hosts asked Giuliani about comments he’d made about the search warrant served at Mar-a-Lago being just like what they do in Third World nations, which led Rudy to reply:

“All the time. They kill them. They arrest them. They put their families in jail.”

The host then inquired:

“Should Donald Trump be in any fear of the deep state maybe killing him?”

That was all it took for Giuliani to reel off a ridiculous conspiracy theory:

“I do. In many different ways, I do. The amount of hatred generated toward him is the kind of hatred we worry about that would set off a sick person. I mean, if there is anything to the fact that, that hatred can set off sick people. There’s no one where more hatred has been generated by the mainstream media — who do they hate more than Donald Trump. They display it at, uh, Emmy awards, they display it at — everywhere.”

And yet, it was a right-wing “sick person” who attacked FBI headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, earlier this week, as CNN reported at the time:

An armed man suspected of trying to breach the FBI’s Cincinnati field office Thursday was killed in Ohio after a vehicle chase and hours-long standoff with law enforcement, authorities say.

The suspect was believed to be armed with an AR-15 rifle and a nail gun, a federal law enforcement source told CNN, and was wearing body armor, according to officials in an Ohio county.

Authorities have not announced a motive. But Shiffer had been known to the FBI because he had an unspecified connection to the January 6, 2021, riot at the US Capitol, and because he had associates within a far-right extremist group, two law enforcement sources told CNN Friday.

If anything kills Donald Trump, it’ll be his gross obesity and disgusting eating habits. A man cannot live on Big Macs and KFC without paying a price.

Grand Jury Witness In Georgia Election Probe Accuses Giuliani Of Criminal Acts: Report

A witness who has testified before a sitting grand jury in the state of Georgia says there is no doubt in her mind that former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani committed crimes by trying to help failed ex-president Donald Trump overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Speaking with MSNBC’s Katie Phang, Georgia State Sen. Jen Jordan (D) said she was in the hearing when Giuliani tried to convince state legislators that the election had been stolen from Trump. That led Phang to inquire:

“As we mentioned, you testified before the special grand jury about the December 3rd, 2020 Georgia Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearing. where Rudy Giuliani and others were spreading conspiracy theories about voter fraud in Georgia. Did Giuliani commit a crime before your very eyes?”

Jordan responded affirmatively:

“In my opinion he did. But obviously that’s not necessarily from me. That’s what’s significant about this special grand jury proceeding, they are gathering all of the evidence, they are pulling it all together, right? They are trying to kind of draw the line and see who was involved, what was said, what was done. What were the intentional acts that moved this conspiracy forward.”

She added:

“From my perspective, what we watched in that state Senate hearing was really the scheme that [Trump attorney] John Eastman had put together. I call him the architect of anarchy. The scheme he put together was really the implementation of that scheme on the ground.”

The January 6 House Select Committee, much like the Georgia grand jury, is trying to determine exactly what the former president knew and when he knew it, along with determining who participated in his blatantly illegal scheme to subvert the will of the American people who overwhelmingly voted to elect Joe Biden 46th President of the United States. The panel will hold two public hearings this week on Tuesday, July 12 and Thursday, July 14.

Graham And Giuliani Subpoenaed By Georgia Grand Jury Investigating 2020 Election Crimes

Two of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump’s most vocal supporters found out today that their support of the ex-president has them in very hot water legally.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani have been subpoenaed by a grand jury in Georgia that is investigating efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in the Peach State, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

In addition to Giuliani, among those being summoned are John Eastman, Cleta Mitchell, Kenneth Chesbro and Jenna Ellis, all of whom advised Trump on strategies for overturning Democrat Joe Biden’s wins in Georgia and other swing states.

The grand jury also subpoenaed South Carolina U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of Trump’s top allies in the U.S. Senate, and attorney and podcast host Jacki Pick Deason.

The subpoenas, were filed July 5 and signed off by Fulton Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney, who is overseeing the special grand jury. Unlike subpoenas issued to Georgians, the summons were required to receive McBurney’s blessing since they are for people who reside outside the state.

While Giuliani and the other Trump attorneys may be able to claim attorney-client privilege, Graham has no way out of the Georgia subpoena.

Graham, you may recall, actively meddled in the Georgia election returns:

Graham separately called Raffensperger in the days following the November 2020 elections and allegedly questioned whether the secretary of state had the power to reject more legally cast absentee ballots to help Trump narrow his deficit in Georgia. Graham denied the allegation.

The subpoenas are part of an investigation being conducted by Fulton County DA Fani Willis, who launched a probe of Georgia’s elections in February of 2021, just a few weeks after a phone call between Trump and Raffensperger leaked. In that conversation, Trump urged the Georgia secretary of state to find additional ballots for him, remarking:

 “So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.”

All Trump won was the dubious distinction of being a failure who couldn’t earn a second term in office. History will not be kind to him or enablers like Graham and Giuliani.
