Hey guys, remember when Wrong-Again Rudy took a leave of absence from Greenberg Traurig, the law firm where he was working, to take on a fool for a client, Prznint Stupid? Rudy assured us it would only take one week, maybe two tops to straighten out and conclude the whole Mueller investigation in the Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac thing.
Since then, he’s made a career of screwing the pooch. He’s gone on television and essentially revealed bribes and other crimes on behalf of his Stupiest (and now-only) Client, and in the process besmirched the entire legal profession, including his now-former employer.
You see, they You’re Fired’ed his ass.
“After recognizing that this work is all consuming and is lasting longer than initially anticipated, Rudy has determined it is best for him to resign,”
…the firm’s chairman, Richard A. Rosenbaum, said in a statement.
That sounds like the ol’ Roadmap and a Cheese Sandwich to me.
Now should we speculate, à la Noonan? Of course we should!
That great, big law firm is no dummy. When Rudy left to defend the Prznint of the United States for possible collusion with a foreign power, who in their right mind would believe two weeks at tops? Greenberg Traurig presumably would give him all the time he needed.
No, I think what got Greenberg Traurig‘s Brooks Brother panties in a knot was probably when Rudy started saying that all lawyers (read THEM) are essentially Michael Cohen, you know, paying off pornstars and knocked-up bunnies on behalf of their unknowing and unwitting clients.
“That was money that was paid by [Comrade Stupid’s] lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds. [Cohen] would take care of things like this like I take care of this with my clients.”
…which I am led to believe is an offense that could get a lawyer disbarred. But it also reflects as badly on G&T as on all lawyers. Imagine the competition giggling in walnut-paneled offices, murmuring “Go, Rudy, Go!”
Says Jill Perry, a spokesperson for the firm, told the NYTimes:
“We cannot speak for Mr. Giuliani with respect to what was intended by his remarks. Speaking for ourselves, we would not condone payments of the nature alleged to have been made or otherwise without the knowledge and direction of a client.”
“…but we can fire his ass,” she didn’t add.
