Oh Rudy Giuliani – once “America’s Mayor,” when as New York City Mayor you bravely and strongly led your city through the aftermath of 9/11.
Contrast that to now, where Rudy is a bumbling Trump lawyer who has somehow managed the incredible accomplishment of being the biggest embarrassment in the campaign, administration and/or legal team of popular vote loser Donald Trump.
I mean, really, what an incredible feat that is.
Ever since Giuliani joined Trump’s legal team back in April, he’s gone on news shows to be interviewed and presented a whole litany of things the rest of Trump’s administration has to immediately walk back and disassociate from.
This latest one may take the cake, though, as Rudy just made the claim that Trump could’ve shot former FBI Director James Comey instead of just firing him, and still not be charged.
Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told the Huffington Post that the Constitution prevents a president from being prosecuted, even in a hypothetical case Trump shot former FBI director James Comey instead of firing him.
“In no case can he be subpoenaed or indicted. I don’t know how you can indict while he’s in office. No matter what it is … If he shot James Comey, he’d be impeached the next day. Impeach him, and then you can do whatever you want to do to him.”
Oh really, Rudy?
“…locked in the National Archives for nearly two decades and obtained by The New York Times under the Freedom of Information Act, amounts to the most thorough government-commissioned analysis rejecting a generally held view that presidents are immune from prosecution while in office.”
“It is proper, constitutional, and legal for a federal grand jury to indict a sitting president for serious criminal acts that are not part of, and are contrary to, the president’s official duties,” the Starr office memo concludes. “In this country, no one, even President Clinton, is above the law.”
