Rudy Giuliani’s meltdown proves Cohen testimony ‘pushed broader Trumpworld to a point of near hysteria’: report

Published

on

The bombshell testimony from longtime Donald Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen has rattled the White House and supporters of the president, The Daily Beast reported Wednesday.

“Sitting alone, watching live coverage of Cohen’s testimony on TV, the former New York City mayor, dashed off insta-reactions to reporters via text,” The Beast noted. “The messages were a form of real-time rapid response with a dash of character assassination—an attempt to diminish the man who was speaking before millions, threatening the president of the United States.”

Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City, is one of Trump’s defense attorneys.

“By the end of the House testimony, Giuliani had sent The Daily Beast fourteen texts over six hours—an ad hoc form of rebuttal that was indicative of how Cohen’s blockbuster testimony had pushed broader Trumpworld to a point of near hysteria,” the publication revealed. “Faced with an insider revealing the president’s secrets, everyone from Trump’s closest advisers and friends to the backbencher Republicans in Congress responded by throwing everything they could at the apostate.”

The freakout didn’t just occur within Trump’s legal team, but also extended to right-wing media.

“The effort to cast Cohen as a sniveling, backstabbing, self-centered, lying coward who will stop at nothing to reduce his prison sentence, was echoed from the dais of the committee to outside political groups and conservative talk radio helmed by the likes of Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh,” The Beast noted.

Trump has also been rattled as Congress finally begins investigating.

“One source close to the president recalled a conversation in recent weeks in which Trump loudly lambasted Cohen as a ‘rat’ three times over the course of less than two minutes of conversation. The conversation, originally, had nothing to do with Cohen,” The Beast reported.
