Trump’s top personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has a fit – crying “unfair” when CNN’s Chris Cuomo calls him out for saying that Clinton had to obey a subpoena but Trump doesn’t.
- Trump might invoke the Fifth Amendment;
- Trump will not comply with a subpoena issued by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller;
- Giuliani expects Trump’s long-time personal attorney Michael Cohen to cooperate with Mueller; and
- Trump may have paid off other women in addition to Stormy Daniels.
Asked about the possibility of Trump getting subpoenaed by Mueller to testify, Giuliani answered: “We don’t have to” comply with a subpoena.
“They don’t have a case on collusion, they don’t have obstruction… I’m going to walk him into a prosecution for perjury like Martha Stewart did?” Giuliani continued. “He’s the president of the United States. We can assert privilege other presidents [have].”
Fast-forwarding to this morning, Giuliani had a meltdown when CNN host Chris Cuomo questioned him about remarks he made during an interview with Charlie Rose during the 1990s in which he emphatically stated that then-president Bill Clinton had to obey a subpoena during the Whitewater investigation.
Giuliani tried to qualify his statement claiming that he was speaking about a subpoena for documents and not about an “in person” subpoena.
Cuomo wasn’t have any of it and, after having some words back and forth, he played the clip.
However, as he played the clip, Giuliani can be seen pointing his finger and complaining that it was “unfair” for Cuomo to play that clip.
“That’s really unfair!” Giuliani complained, adding: “That’s extremely unfair what you’re doing right now! This is the reason people don’t come on this show! – with all that promoting of Avenatti, that ambulance chaser.”
