Rudy Giuliani is a former Mayor of New York and a huge Donald Trump loyalist, as he went on to become a controversial figure in US politics.
As reported earlier, Rudy Giuliani was banned from Fox News for three months. It was said that Giuliani was going to appear on Fox’s 20th-anniversary coverage, but host Pete Hegseth called him the night before to tell him he was removed.
According to legal documents obtained by Insider, Rudy Giuliani claimed that he was ordered by Donald Trump to work for him without any pay in the months following the 2020 election.
Giuliani made the claim while testifying for a defamation lawsuit filed by Eric Coomer, an executive for election technology supplier Dominion Voting Systems. Donald Trump had accused the company of participating in widespread election fraud, claiming it had intentionally deleted 2.7 million Trump votes across the country.
During his deposition, Giuliani was asked if he still represented Trump’s campaign after Joe Biden won the election. He told Coomer’s legal team he had worked for the campaign without pay, and was only reimbursed for expenses. When asked why he did it, Giuliani said, “The president — the president ordered me to do it.”
Giuliani said Donald Trump called him into the Oval Office a day or two after the election. It was at that time Trump allegedly told his lawyer, “go over and take over the campaign, tell them you’re in charge.”
In the weeks leading up to Donald Trump leaving the White House, Trump allegedly told his staff to stop paying legal fees to Giuliani. Perhaps Giuliani should have known better than to work with Donald Trump from the looks of it.
