From the other thread. Surely 9/11 is part of this investigation for that magic way he had of knowing all that FBI information in advance.

If Mueller can get Cohen for crimes not protected by attorney-client privilege, then why the hell not Giuliani?

An end?

That's not how this works.

I guess he decided that hiding in the closet wasn't going to save his ass so why not chain himself to the helm so when the SS Trumptanic goes down he is right there too.

Or, maybe Putin pulled out some of the Kopromat he's got on Rudy to force him to take the case.  The longer and more disruptive it is, the better.

Between the two of them they have to be able to get some mobbed up lawyers who will take any client.

Rudy is batshiat insane these days. He did this out of stupidity. And a desperate longing to be in some way connected to Trump.

Expect Chris Christie to be next.

'negotiate an end'??

That's not how that works.  That's not how any of this works.

A resignation and guilty plea could possibly be negotiated and they would end this thing.  As far as 45* is concerned.
 
2018-04-19 05:43:43 PM  
Wouldn't it be funny if Giuliani negotiates immunity for himself by giving up all the dirt on Trump?

Honestly, I think this is a very smart move for Mayor 9/11, and yet another profoundly potato move for Trump.
 
2018-04-19 05:44:15 PM  
Count me in the "that's not how this works" camp.

Hey, Trump, you're 100% certain you've committed no crimes, and just recently stated you weren't even a subject of a criminal investigation right? You're certain that Mueller's investigation has nothing to do with you.

So why are you trying to end it? Cause it just seems suspicious you'd shut down an investigation that was going to 100% absolve you...

Gubbo: From the other thread. Surely 9/11 is part of this investigation for that magic way he had of knowing all that FBI information in advance.


Leaking information about an ongoing FBI investigation is a felony. Which means Rudy might be in legal jeopardy himself. Which means any attempt to end the Mueller probe could be obstruction.
 
2018-04-19 05:46:36 PM  
Let's see... Rudy hasn't been a prosecutor for 30 years, and he's never been a defense attorney. But he has been on TV, so Trump loves him.

Nah, it's just an excuse to get Rudy on TV defending Trump.

Rudy is desperate to get on the Trump legal team before the full IG report comes out on the FBI actions in the run-up to the election. He'll be named explicitly.

The end is the bad guys go to prison.  
That is how this is going down, Rudy.

Original WaPo article said Trump has struggled adding to his legal team, getting Mayor 9/11 looks like a new level of desperation.

Rudy is taking a leave of absence from his law firm.  So his partners won't touch this with a 10' pole.

So, Giuliani is finally getting dealt into the game.

About time, since his Fox News money only goes so far to pay for his mistresses, especially since he was funding them with New York City taxpayer money back in the day.

That's probably the least offensive thing this slimeball has done in his career. Think about that.

Sometimes over the last 2 years I've wondered if Rudy took on the five families at the behest of the Russian mob to strengthen them.

LA Law... in New York?

My money is on Allie McBeal.
 
2018-04-19 05:59:06 PM  
I'm imagining this.

"Hey, Bobby! It's Rudy! You know, mayor of New York during 9/11? Yeah, I need to talk to you about this investigation thing, about Russia and the election, you know. Yeah, we think it's taking too long, we need you to wrap it up."

"... Did you just call me Bobby?"

"Yeah, Bobby, you know, we aren't being formal here, this is two guys talking about making a deal."

"I'll send an agent over to talk to you."

"Good! Good, this has gone on long enough.."

*SpongeBob time passing card*

"Oh you must be Bobby's guy! Come in, wait you brought friends uh what's with the cuffs..."

/Aaaaand scene
 
2018-04-19 05:59:15 PM  
At this point, I'd accept Trunp stepping down with the understanding that he shut up and play golf at Mar A Lago for the rest of his life. No constitutional crisis, no hooting and hollerin from the Trumpians. It will be like all of this was a bad dream.

He's way too close to all of this, this will be a disaster.
 
2018-04-19 06:02:14 PM  
That's perfect.  Now how Rudy knew ahead of time about the Comey letter and info to the Trump campaign will be questioned by Mueller.

These guys are brilliant.

Muller is playing three-dimensional chess and the Trump team is playing Candyland.

Only thing I can possibly see is that Rudy has other shady characters he knows around NY and he's trying to undermine their efforts on the state justice side.  If not, I'm baffled by this move. It's just more obstruction and witness tampering. They are going for broke.  Does this guy even remember law at this point??
