People close to President Trump have ‘grown exasperated’ with TV defense lawyer Rudy Giuliani: New York Times

on

The bizarre rationalizations and clarifications by Rudy Giuliani are worrying people close to President Donald Trump, The New York Times reported Monday.

Giuliani attempted to walk back multiple claims he had made over the weekend about the timeline of the Trump Tower Moscow deal that could have netted hundreds of millions of dollars for the Trump family.

“When Mr. Giuliani was hired last April as the public face of Mr. Trump’s legal team, it was part of a strategy to be more aggressive in fighting back against Mr. Mueller,” The Times reported. “Some of the president’s closest allies believe that Mr. Giuliani was effective in helping change public opinion about the special counsel investigation — at least to some extent.”

“Several people close to Mr. Trump have grown exasperated with Mr. Giuliani’s public appearances,” The Times noted. “They also expressed concern that he is increasing prosecutors’ anger with the president and potentially creating a misimpression about the Trump Tower project in Moscow.”
