Right smack dab in the middle of this latest push to impeach the President is former New York City Mayor and close friend to Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani.
Giuliani has been acting as the President’s personal lawyer for some time now, spending plenty of time making the rounds within the mainstream media explaining to these pundits the reality of what is occurring in Washington…often to the disappointment of those who wish ill to befall the Oval Office.
Despite his valiant efforts in this realm of perception, Rudy’s style isn’t for everyone, and Republicans on Capitol Hill are hoping that the President’s attorney might reel it in a bit as this whole process proceeds.
“I have great respect for Mr. Giuliani, but I said this yesterday and take it for what it’s worth: He’s wild as a March hare,” said Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.). “He’s like a lot of senators, he’s kind of a free range chicken, he kind of gets out there. What he says is his business, I don’t speak for him.”
Others put it more bluntly.
“I think it would be a good thing if he would go take a vacation,” a senior GOP lawmaker told POLITICO, one of several who declined to go on the record so they could speak critically of Giuliani.
“Rudy’s saying a lot of things and I’m not sure he’s helping the president by being on TV every 15 minutes,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters this week.
