YAAY RUDY!


[www.nbcnewyork.com]
In a bombshell interview, Rudy Giuliani talked to NBC New York about the months-long federal probe accusing him of illegal Ukraine dealings — an investigation he calls "lawless."

The former New York City mayor has been the subject of investigations and FBI scrutiny since two business associates were arrested in 2019 in a separate case. But in an exclusive interview with News 4, Giuliani emphatically maintained that he did nothing wrong — becoming seemingly fixated on declaring his innocence.

"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 said, as an investigation looms into whether he was working as an unregistered lobbyist for Ukrainian officials.

He said that he was working for then-President Donald Trump as his lawyer at the time.

"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," he said.

Giuliani initially agreed to speak with NBC New York at the World Trade Center Memorial in Lower Manhattan for an upcoming story about the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. But it was clear there were other things weighing on his mind: The fallout from the recent election, and the fact that he's still facing criminal investigation.

Giuliani voiced frustration at the FBI searches of his home and law office, calling the investigation misguided and politically motivated.

"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," he said. "I'm not, I didn't do anything wrong."

When asked why he would be willing to go to jail if he is not guilty, Giuliani replied "Because they lie, they cheat."

Giuliani said there's a partisan double standard at the Justice Department, which he said has been lenient toward New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's nursing home COVID policies, as well as what he said is damaging information on the Hunter Biden laptop.

"When you see the differences between the way Cuomo was treated and the way I'm treated, and you don't realize there's a very, very terrible distortion of justice. Because that's not the only example," he said.

Given what the interview was initially planned to cover, Giuliani weighed in on those who compare the Jan. 6 riots at the Capitol to 9/11, calling it "sacrilege" while insisting that he did not incite violence in his speech beforehand.

"I believe Jan. 6 was a crime. I believe they committed the crime of trespass, I believe they did some destruction," he said.

Giuliani also reflected on whether he believes his legacy has been tainted in recent years.

"I can't control that, I can't control my legacy," he said. "I believe I will be vindicated."

So long, sucker...

It would be so wonderfully ironic if they used NY RICO to put Ghouliani in jail.

His legacy will always be the Four Seasons Total Landscaping parking lot (next to the porn shop) for me.

If Aaron Sorkin had tried to put a Rudy character in West Wing, no one would have believed him.

Too bad that poor judgement, poor character, greed, and very likely dementia have robbed this man of what could have been an admirable legacy.

I just see it as an extension of the self-serving a-hole he was in the immediate aftermath of 9-11. So many times he made it all about him, not those who had been lost or those who lost.

He is supposed to have been behind cleaning up some crime in NYC. At some point I would like to see an an objective analysis of what was actually accomplished during that period and how much he was actually responsible for as opposed to others who did less posturing for the press.

His legacy without 9/11 was putting tens of thousands of innocents behind bars and depriving urban youths of an economically viable future in a racist campaign of "broken window" and illegal stop-and-frisk policing, and exploiting his office for political favors while siphoning off public funds to further enrich the elite he was trying to suck up to, and gutting the retirement funds and health services for police and firemen.

People used to spit after saying his name to keep Satan away.

That was Bill Bratton as Commissioner of Police in NYC that did the "crime reduction." When Giuliani became jealous of the attention Bratton was getting, they argued and Bill resigned.

Giuliani takes credit for the resurrection of Times Square but that begun by Disney's Michael Eisner when they decided to restore the New Amsterdam Theater (after successfully restoring the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Blvd which sparked a massive restoration of that entertainment zone.

I had a little concern about the adjacent nightlife, and he [Giuliani] looked me in the eye and he said, “It’ll be gone,” and I said, “Mr. Mayor, you know there is the American Civil Liberties Union, and I mean, they’re just not gone.” He said, “Look me in the eye.” And I said, “What?” He said, “Look me in the eye.” I said, “Okay.” He said, “They will be gone.” Scared me. I guess[ed] they were going to be gone. So that was that, and we said yes.
— Michael Eisner


It was Hillary Clinton with the help of President Bush that secured the billions to immediately aid NYC after 9/11.

THIS MF IS RESPONSIBLE FOR NOTHING GOOD.

From other things I have read as well as this thread, it sounds like Guiliani is a master of self promotion. Kinda reminds you of someone Guiliani recently worked for.

Giuliani is a product of the crime fear hysteria that, from time to time, the right uses to gin up fear and turn fascistic dreams into public policy. We're at the doorstep of one of those times today.

that is an obvious common thread with these whacked repubs - MTG is a perfect example - she has no qualifications whatsoever, but self promotion is strong with this one...

You have to admire his selflessness and loyalty, working countless hours knowing he wouldn’t get paid one red cent while his friend and client raked in a hundred million dollars for the friend’s defense. Not even a pardon.
