George Conway: If Giuliani Has 'Anything To Offer' To 'Save Himself, It Would Have To Be Trump'

Path 27

George Conway believes there is one way former President Donald Trump‘s longtime adviser Rudy Giuliani can “save himself.”

Opening his op-ed published by The Washington Post on Thursday, Conway wrote, “To borrow the infamous line of his ex-presidential ex-client, it looks like Rudolph W. Giuliani is ‘going to go through some things.'”

He added, “Like possibly being charged with a crime. Worse, some people who might have tried to save him from that fate might have actually guaranteed it.”

Conway noted the words come from “the former president’s supposedly ‘perfect’ phone call with Ukraine’s president, and described what could happen to the American ambassador there, Marie L. Yovanovitch. It was Giuliani’s relentless efforts that got her recalled. Now that’s what might land poor Giuliani in the dock.”

Mentioning the FBI’s raid of Giuliani’s apartment focusing on Yovanovitch’s firing, Conway suggested the material could answer, “On whose behalf was Giuliani acting? Just Donald J. Trump, legal client? Or was Giuliani also representing Ukrainian officials who wanted the corruption-fighting diplomat gone?”

Suggesting Giuliani “might have violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act,” Conway said, “Giuliani denies any obligation to register — because, he says, he drafted his retainer agreements to disclaim lobbying or foreign representation.”

Conway added, “Whatever happens, the investigation marks yet another step in Giuliani’s unimaginable fall from grace.” He argued Giuliani “established himself as one of the world’s worst lawyers.”

Arguing both impeachments were “Rudy-enabled,” Conway explained, “Nobody — other than perhaps the impeachee himself — did more than Giuliani to get his client charged with high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Touching on Giuliani’s “travails,” Conway wrote they “have left him facing potentially staggering legal bills, which in apparent desperation he’s beseeching Trump to pay. And most important, Giuliani faces the prospect of jail.”

He continued, “If Giuliani has anything to offer prosecutors to save himself, it would have to be Trump, the only bigger fish left.”

According to a transcript published last week of a phone call Giuliani had with one of the Ukrainian president’s top aides, he warned, “Be careful of the people around you, because they can very easily, they can very easily get you into trouble.”

Conway concluded, “That might be the only advice he gave that turned out to be right.”
