Rudy Giuliani’s Fall From Grace

Editor, News-Register:

Is it not quite sad to witness the professional degeneration of Rudy Giuliani, who served quite admirably in the position of mayor of New York City, earning him the moniker of “America’s mayor” as a result of his laudatory leadership on response to the horrific terrorist attack on New York City and our great nation nearly 20 years ago, on Sept. 11, 2001?

Mr. Giuliani, who served as mayor of New York City from 1993-2001, had a very successful career as an attorney at law, including serving admirably as a federal prosecutor for the Southern District of the state of New York, prior to his assuming the position of New York City’s mayor.

In particular as a result of his leadership as a result of the 9-11 attacks, Mr. Giuliani ran, however unsuccessfully, for the Republican nomination for president of the United States in 2008.

However, in April 2018 Mr. Giuliani was hired by then President Donald J. Trump, even though it had been more than 17 years since he had last served as a practicing attorney, to serve as his “personal attorney.”

Mr. Giuliani had been very aggressive and assertive in the position of the personal attorney of former President Trump, and had been very bold in making baseless allegations and essentially making up his own “facts” in defense of his prestigious client, and as a result of his multitude of false statements and largely unproven allegations, he has been suspended from practicing law in Washington, D.C., as well as his home state of New York.

In addition, Mr. Giuliani is reportedly currently being sued by Dominion Voting Systems for $1.3 billion for his “orchestrating a viral disinformation campaign” against the company, regarding his promotion of the “great lie” of Donald Trump that somehow the 2020 presidential election was somehow “stolen” from him, and that Dominion Voting Systems had somehow played a role in this “election fraud,” which was completely untrue as such claims have been conclusively debunked.

Although Mr. Giuliani’s legion of untrue statements and allegations were in defense, and with the complete approval of Mr. Trump, it has been recently reported that the billionaire former President has either “ignored or rejected” Mr. Giuliani’s pleas for financial support, and it is said that he (Mr. Giuliani) is simply “drowning in legal bills” at the present time.

It appears that personal loyalty, although he fully expects such from all others toward him, is by no means reciprocated by the former president.

I wonder how Mr. Giuliani currently feels about figuratively being “thrown under the bus” by his client, the extremely wealthy former president of the United States, Donald J. Trump?
