Grabbing TV Limelight, Giuliani Forfeits Law Firm (And Dignity)

Giuliani says he is joining Trump's legal team to help bring Mueller probe to a conclusion Giuliani Resigns From Law Firm Amid Tensions Over Comments About Trump

The former NY mayor in an interview with Business Insider was responding to a challenge from Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for the adult entertainer who claims she had an affair with Trump, to debate the president's defamation suit against his client live on-air. Avenatti tweeted earlier this week that he would like to debate the former NYC mayor. But the reality was that Giuliani already knew that Trump had himself effectively given the game away days earlier during his own freakish, rambling, uninvited phone-in on Fox and Friends.

Giuliani responded to new developments in the Michael Cohen case.

"That was money that was paid by his lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds", he said on Fox News. "I am also willing to do it on 12-hrs notice". That's followed by Giuliani's recent interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, in which he says "Well we don't have to" comply with a subpoena, "he's the president of the United States".

Avenatti hit back on Twitter, sharing a video of a 2000 skit in which Giuliani, dressed in drag, fends off Trump's advances.

It is worth a reminder here that Trump's election mastermind and former White House chief of strategy, Steve Bannon, told Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff that he believed up to 100 women had been paid off by Trump lawyers ahead of the 2016 presidential campaign. While Giuliani has said a number of cringe-worthy things since joining Trump's legal team-that he fantasizes about riding to Ivanka Trump's rescue; that it would have been really bad if the Stormy Daniels story got out a month before the election, etc. -perhaps the most embarrassing was his appearance on Sean Hannity, wherein he implied that Cohen's biggest mistake wasn't paying off Daniels, allegedly without Trump's knowledge, but the way he did it.


Cohen is the focus of a criminal investigation in the Southern District of NY into whether he violated campaign-finance laws or committed bank fraud.

Avenatti did not make clear how he obtained the banking records, and experts were left guessing just how he came upon them.

Avenatti did not immediately return a request for comment from Business Insider.

"The media loves to give him room because he makes these roundabout charges and they turn out to mean nothing", Giuliani continued, issuing a warning: "I think he's going to get himself in serious trouble". "He's no Alan Dershowitz". "He's no Alan Dershowitz".
