Prznint Stupid’s Stupidest Lawyer ™ Rudy Giuliani is in the news again. The NYTimes:
“Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer who has led the most extensive efforts to damage his client’s political rivals and undermine the election results, discussed with the president as recently as last week the possibility of receiving a pre-emptive pardon before Mr. Trump leaves office.
“Mr. Giuliani’s potential criminal exposure is unclear. He was under investigation as recently as last summer by federal prosecutors in Manhattan for his business dealings in Ukraine and his role in ousting the American ambassador there, a plot that was at the heart of the impeachment of Mr. Trump.”
$20,000 Ameros-per-day to lose every case AND a prznintial pardon seems like a major win in the billable hours sweepstakes.
Remember: Pardons are considered confessions, and while you cannot be punished for the underlying crime, you no longer have 5th Amendment rights.
