Giuliani says he won't comply with a congressional subpoena

Source: ABC

President Donald's Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani told ABC News on Tuesday he is not complying with a congressional subpoena.

Giuliani tells ABC News “if they enforce it then we will see what happens.”

Giuliani went on to tell ABC News he is no longer retaining the services of Jon Sale, who was acting as his attorney for this matter. Giuliani says that if Congress seeks to enforce a subpoena then he will retain counsel.

His lawyer probably told him that he would be out if Rudy was going to blow off any subpoena.

6. Agree, it's no accident his lawyer high-tailed it.

Giuliani is really playing with fire now: no lawyer, still doing interviews, snubbing subpoenas. He could face arrest on multiple fronts--SDNY and Congress.

12. Here's to hoping for a Rudy Frogmarch

But even if Barr doesn't feel he can get away with blocking the arrest, he will probably spare Rudy from the spectacle. Plus Trump would not like the optics of his buddy Rudy in cuffs.

10. Check Out "The Weekly" on Hulu

In the latest episode, they do a bio of Giuliani -- starting with his appointment to SDNY. Biggest point that was made, was that it was BIDEN who stuck a pin in Rudy's 2008 Presidential run. JOE was the one who said in a speech about Rudy, -- "Every sentence he says has a noun, verb, and 9/11 in it". Rudy's bid immediately deflated. The show also made a point of saying that Rudy NEVER forgets a slight. So there you have it -- why Rudy has a hard on for Joe.

dinner where Obama took some hard shots at Trump after enduring months of the birth certificate nonsense.

If some mob gangster just declared that he wasn't going to comply with a subpoena.

21. "His lawyer probably told him that he would be out"

That's basically what the CNN article suggests although they only give Ghouliani's side of the argument since Sale refuses to comment -

Giuliani parting ways with attorney who was helping on impeachment matters

By Michael Warren and Evan Perez, CNN

Updated 2:31 PM ET, Tue October 15, 2019

(CNN) Rudy Giuliani is parting ways with the personal attorney who has represented him in matters related to the impeachment inquiry. Giuliani told CNN Tuesday that his current attorney, Jon Sale, will stop representing the former New York City mayor shortly.

Sale had been working for Giuliani after the House of Representatives subpoenaed Giuliani for documents related to the ongoing impeachment inquiry. The deadline for his response to the congressional subpoena is Tuesday. "Jon was helping me with assessing (the) congressional request. He will submit his letter and he will be finished with what I asked him to do," Giuliani said. Sale did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

People close to Giuliani are advising him to hire a criminal lawyer as questions linger about his connections to two of his associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Furman, who were indicted last week for campaign-finance violations. Giuliani, who is President Donald Trump's personal attorney, has been resisting that advice, according to those people. Giuliani did not directly answer whether he was looking to hire a new attorney for himself. "If they take me to court I would then have to get another lawyer," he told CNN.

Taking on a criminal attorney would likely cost Giuliani something close to $1 million, according to people in New York legal circles. That could be difficult for Giuliani, who admitted earlier this year that he had to take a $100,000 loan from another of Trump's lawyers Marc Mukasey as a result of his ongoing divorce proceedings, according to a report from Bloomberg.

He would have gone down as "America's Mayor" and a bright point during a dark time and he just cashed that chip in for a footnote in the history books as a fucking bootlicking toadie.

I just can't comprehend...

38. He drank the trump koolaid.

He thinks that because he's trump's lawyer, he can get away with anything, just like trump is getting away with everything. As in: If trumpie is above the law, then so must his attorney also be.

I think the ABA needs to pull his license. He has disgraced and betrayed the profession.

He can take the 5th, and law enforcement doesn’t need the blessing of a suspected criminal. For anything.

Who is Rudy talking to? Fox News viewers of course.
