The Morning Stupid
That $20K Amereos/day* is really paying off:
UPDATE 1: LATimes email thingie:
On Tuesday, Giuliani tried a new venue — federal court in Pennsylvania. Although the former New York City mayor has served as the president’s personal lawyer for years, it was his first appearance on Trump’s behalf before a judge. It didn’t go well.
In an episode emblematic of Trump’s faltering legal effort to overturn the election result, Giuliani argued without evidence that there was a massive conspiracy behind Biden’s victory, even though there were no such allegations in the Trump campaign’s actual lawsuit.
“It’s a widespread, nationwide voter fraud,” Giuliani said. But under questioning from a U.S. district judge, Giuliani admitted, “This is not a fraud case.”
*“Reached by phone, Mr. Giuliani strenuously denied requesting that much. ‘I never asked for $20,000,’ said Mr. Giuliani, saying the president volunteered to make sure he was paid after the cases concluded. ‘The arrangement is, we’ll work it out at the end.’ He added that whoever had said he made the $20,000-a-day request ‘is a liar, a complete liar.’” — a fool for a client and a fool for counsel.
