Giuliani is ‘carving a path of destruction’: Ex-prosecutor calls Trump’s attorney an ongoing disaster for president

Published

on

On CNN Saturday, former federal prosecutor Elie Honig broke down how President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is making the situation immeasurably worse for his boss.

“Is Rudy Giuliani creating more problems for himself, questioning if he was or is some kind of pseudo-envoy for the White House?” asked anchor Victor Blackwell.

“Rudy Giuliani is carving a path of destruction for himself and others around him,” said Honig. “I don’t understand what his legal or tactical strategy is at all.”

“He’s suggesting he openly was serving as an envoy for Trump and the United States government,” continued Honig. “Keep in mind, Giuliani is a private citizen working only for President Trump. He came out, almost boasting about the fact he was trying to get Ukraine to dig for dirt on Joe Biden. Why on Earth would his personal attorney be involved? There are plenty of official channels to do that. By having Rudy Giuliani do that, it makes it more clear the real goal was to benefit Donald Trump personally and politically.”

Tribe said, "what it looks like is that the majority leader is going to conduct this trial as though he's a member of the defense team," Tribe said. "You know, it's an ancient principle, centuries-old -- actually over a millennium old -- that you can't be a judge on your own case and effectively, to allow Donald Trump to call the shots, violates that principle."

A Washington Post editorial is singing the praises of the Judiciary Committee's memo about the impeachment charges President Donald Trump is facing. The memo, titled “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment” details the fundamental principles of the Constitution the founders outlined to guarantee the country wouldn't fall at the hands of corruption.

"The memo is remarkably originalist. Regardless of what happens with the impeachment, we are getting a much-needed civics lesson," The Post explained.

Controversial White House advisor Stephen Miller has pushed President Donald Trump to enact harsh immigration policies, which are getting more attention after a grisly murder.

"During a seven-month period, the man and his family repeatedly told U.S. officials — including a San Diego immigration court judge, officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and border agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection — that they were not safe in Tijuana, the lawyer said."
