Giuliani: Mueller Acted Like 'Godfather' Mob Boss During Meeting

By Nicole Lafond | May 17, 2018 10:07 am

President Donald Trump’s outspoken lawyer Rudy Giuliani described special counsel Robert Mueller as acting like a mob boss from “The Godfather” when his team discussed whether Trump could be indicted by the special counsel.

In a meeting a few weeks ago, Trump’s lawyers and Mueller’s team agreed that the special counsel would follow Justice Department guidelines, indicating that the federal investigators ultimately would not indict Trump in the Russia probe unless he were impeached, according to the Washington Post.

“He didn’t seem to want to give the answer,” Giuliani told the Post. “It reminded me of that scene in ‘The Godfather,’ with Sonny and the Godfather, where he said, ‘Oh, you’re going to take care of us? We can take care of ourselves.’ One of his assistants broke in and said, ‘Well of course, we’re bound by Justice Department policies.’ Mueller looked at him like, ‘Don’t interrupt me.’”

CNN was first to report that Mueller and Trump’s legal team had determined that the Russia probe would end with a report to Congress on potential crimes, not an indictment.

1. No such scene

I've seen "Godfather" dozens of times. There is no scene like the one he describes. Asshole.

5. Thanks for that

I was scratching my head when I read Giuliani's quote. I've read the novel and seen the films numerous times and didn't know what Giuliani was talking about.

I agree with your description of him.

6. Giuliani can't tell the difference between The Godfather movies

and his day-to-day life. That's the problem he has with remembering actual movie scenes. It's all a blur to him.
