Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani isn’t doing well lately. The former attorney for Donald Trump recently had his reciprocal license suspended in Washington, DC., after being suspended from practicing law in New York state last month for lying to the court. As for the latter, the appellate division of the New York Supreme Court that covers Manhattan wrote in its decision that it found “uncontroverted evidence” that Giuliani “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large” to suggest that “victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client.”
On Friday, Giuliani was interviewed by WNBC to feature a segment on the upcoming anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Reporter Melissa Russo touched on Giuliani’s latest scandal, and the interview got a bit weird.
“But it was clear that also weighing heavily on the former mayor is fallout from the recent election and the fact that he’s still facing that criminal investigation,” Russo said. “Former Mayor Giuliani seems fixated on declaring his innocence as a federal investigation looms into whether he was working as an unregistered lobbyist for Ukrainian officials.”
Giuliani, in true Trumpian fashion, insisted that he is innocent.

“I committed no crime, and if you think I committed a crime, you’re probably really stupid because you don’t know who I am,” Giuliani insisted. “Is the guy who put the mafia in jail, terrorists in jail, Ed Koch’s commissioners in jail, and the worst people on Wall Street — I’m not going to file (a form)? I mean, that’s just crazy.”
Then he said he is willing to go to jail, “if they want to put me in jail,” but they’ll go to hell.
“I am more than willing to go to jail if they want to put me in jail. And if they do, they’re going to suffer the consequences in heaven. I’m not; I didn’t do anything wrong,” the bug-eyed attorney said.
Interestingly, Giuliani brought up his past when he put mafia figures behind bars. And since that time, something happened to Giuliani to change him, obviously. And now he’s suggesting that if he goes to jail, then people will go to hell. I don’t think that’s a very good defense, my crazy dude.
