As scandal swirls around Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, even Fox News host Harris Faulkner is wondering if it’s time for the man once known as “America’s Mayor” to go.
In a Fox News segment Friday, Faulkner discussed how the Trump White House was enduring fresh public relations headaches after Giuliani henchmen Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were arrested this week on campaign-finance charges for allegedly funneling money from a Russian businessman into American elections.
“Let’s just cut to the chase, because as Americans are watching this across the country, they’re wondering, ‘Does this touch the president?'” Faulkner asked guest Jmail Jaffer, the current director of the national security law and policy program at George Mason University. “Is Rudy Giuliani becoming a liability for the White House?”
Jaffer responded by admitting that it’s “hard to know” and noted that Trump has stuck by Giuliani so far through thick and thin.
However, he suggested there are limits to the president’s patience.
“It’s becoming hard to know how long the president will stick with him,” he said. “It is becoming more and more challenging.”

Bill Barr is acting as ‘the president’s lawyer’ against the agency he is supposed to be leading: Ex-FBI deputy director
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe excoriated Attorney General William Barr for trying to poison public perception of the FBI — even as his own department's inspector general debunked right-wing conspiracies of an FBI-centric "deep state" working to bring down President Donald Trump.
"The attorney general of the United States is saying others, but also you, acted in bad faith," said anchor Erin Burnett.
"That's absolutely false," said McCabe. "It didn't happen. I know that. I didn't need the IG to tell me that. But it's good the IG reported there is no situations of that what so far."
