‘Nobody got killed, nobody got robbed’: Rudy Giuliani insists Trump’s campaign violations are ‘not a big crime’

President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani attempted to wave away allegations that the president engaged in a conspiracy to break campaign finance laws before his election.

Former Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen was sentenced Wednesday to 36 months in prison on a variety of charges, and he implicated the president in the crime and coverup — which Giuliani insisted was not a serious violation, reported The Daily Beast.

“Nobody got killed, nobody got robbed,” Giuliani told the website. “This was not a big crime.”

Prosecutors have heard recordings of the president discussing hush money payments with the attorney and National Enquirer publisher David Pecker, who is also cooperating with investigators, but Giuliani compared the apparent felony crimes to parking citations.

“I think in two weeks they’ll start with parking tickets that haven’t been paid,” he said.

2. So this is the new line of defense?

It isn't a "big crime" because he didn't murder anyone?

I don't think that is going to fly.

. . .compared to WWII. It's not a big deal because it wasn't murder? That's what they've got?

8. Nobody got killed? Bullshit!

What about the immigrant kids who died after being mistreated by Trump's ICE? What about Heather Heyer and the 11 congregants of the Tree of Life synagogue who died after Trump egged on alt-rightwingers?

11. Non violent crimes don't matter?

When Ghouli was a prosecutor did he only prosecute violent criminals? Are all of their attorneys now asking the federal judge to overturn their convictions because they didn't kill anyone or they didn't rob anyone?

The party of law and order has now completely become the party of It's OK if you are a republican.

WOW, just WOW!

12. Nobody got killed, Rudy?

You want to run that excuse by the Khashoggi family? When you were a prosecuting attorney, how many cases did you drop against, say, cannabis users because they hadn't killed or robbed anyone?

16. Tell that to Mr Khashoggi's fiancee and co-workers, family and friends...

Does anybody doubt that Trump & Co at the very least tacitly approved of that murder?

Even if they weren't in on it, they're covering for the murderers.

24. There are a shit ton of people that need to be let out of prison

 

That pretty much absolves almost every posession charge that has someone locked up.

27. Just saw a tweet

suggesting that Rudy was "two steps away" from claiming that laws shouldn't apply to rich old white men. Sure as hell sounds like it to me.

28. Heather Heyer

She was murdered as a result of the Nazi/white supremacy crap Trump encouraged. His fraudulent "victory" in 2016 resulted in that.
