Rudy Reportedly Fishing for a Preemptive Pardon from POTUS

Giuliani faces charges back in Manhattan stemming from his work as a foreign lobbyist in Ukraine.

The long slog uphill that’s currently being undertaken by the President’s legal team, headed up by former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, won’t likely end until January 20th, 2021 – this much we know for sure because that’s when the Constitution – the supreme law of the land – demands that an inauguration occur.  If Trump and Co. don’t have the results of the election reversed by then, it will be too late.

And it’s also fairly safe to assume that Trump and Rudy aren’t planning to take their foot off the gas ahead of that date, either.  They’re in this for the long haul, and they’ll have their noses to the grindstone in perpetuity until that time.

This could mean an abrupt departure from the White House for Trump, and Rudy knows it.  That is perhaps why he is angling for a little help from his old pal Donny.

Citing two people told of the discussion, The Times reported that Giuliani broached the possibility with Trump as recently as last week and that it wasn’t the first time the topic was raised.

Giuliani is the focus of a criminal investigation by the Manhattan US attorney’s office into whether he violated foreign lobbying laws through his work in Ukraine. Specifically, federal prosecutors are said to be examining Giuliani’s business dealings in Ukraine and his involvement in the firing of Marie Yovanovitch as the US’s ambassador to Ukraine.

Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, told The Times that Giuliani was “not concerned about this investigation, because he didn’t do anything wrong and that’s been our position from Day 1.”

The news comes just days after Trump pardoned former national security adviser Michael Flynn – a man who has been intrinsically tied to the MAGA movement via Sidney Powell.
