Making it official, Trump’s office released a statement today saying the former President is no longer represented by his personal attorney Rudy Guiliani.
After Guiliani failed to overturn the election results, he was missing on Trump’s impeachment team, leading many to speculate that he was no longer in Trump’s employ.
Interestingly, this comes on the day when Rep. Bennie Thompson sued both men for violation of the Ku Klux Klan Act by citing their statements before the Capitol riot.
The gist of this lawsuit maintains that the former president and Guiliani ‘conspired with members of far-right extremist groups’ to prevent the Senate from certifying the results of the presidential election he lost to Joe Biden.
Remember, Guiliani spoke before Trump at the ‘Save America’ rally that preceded the MAGA riot in the Capitol, pushing the crowd to ‘trial by combat.’
The suit says in part: ‘The carefully orchestrated series of events that unfolded at the Save America rally and the storming of the Capitol was no accident or coincidence. It was the intended and foreseeable culmination of a carefully coordinated campaign to interfere with the legal process required to confirm the tally of votes cast in the Electoral College.’
So not only did Guiliani get stiffed by Trump on payments, he is now being sued alongside him.
