The coffers of Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Rudy Giuliani are increasingly empty.
Exorbitant legal fees as a result of criminal charges after his work with Trump mean he now has to ask for money – from his former employer.
Rudy Giuliani, who in addition to his previous work as a lawyer for Donald Trump for many years was the mayor of New York, is experiencing financial troubles, according to CNN.
The reason is the flight of hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees resulting from the new criminal charges against Giuliani – related to Donald Trump’s work during the 2020 US presidential election.
In his New York court appearance on Monday, Rudy Giuliani claimed legal troubles had more or less drained his financial assets. Among other things, the former mayor is said to have been forced to sell a three-room apartment in Manhattan for $6.5 million, which is equivalent to 70 million crowns.
Ask Trump for help
In addition to the legal bills, Judge Rudy Giuliani owes nearly $90,000 in a defamation case. Trump’s former personal attorney also has to shell out another $92,000 – $57,000 of which is unpaid phone bills.
– Many bills are not paid. I think he finds the situation humiliating, Giuliani’s attorney, Adam Katz, told a New York court on Wednesday.
Rudy Giuliani also reportedly asked his former employer Donald Trump for help during a visit to Mar-a-Lago in April with his attorney, Robert Costello, according to CNN.
However, Trump is said to have shown a moderate interest in helping Giuliani in his financial plight, beyond verbally promising to pay an unspecified number of bills.
Publication of allegations of election fraud
After Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election, Rudy Giuliani published baseless accusations of election fraud in several media appearances. Along with 19 other people, including former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows, he was recently charged with, among other things, racketeering attempts in the state of Georgia in connection with the election.
Hot enough, during his time as New York Attorney General Rudy Giuliani became famous for his success in using the so-called RICO legislation, which was introduced to combat organized crime – the legislation under which he is now being prosecuted, writes The Guardian.
