MSNBC legal analyst Andrew Weissmann aka “Mueller’s pitbull” seemed to suggest that financial pressure on former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani could lead to his flipping and becoming a witness against former President Donald J. Trump.
The former federal prosecutor, who now draws a paycheck from left-wing cable network MSNBC, gloated about how legal battles are sucking Giuliani’s bank accounts dry during an appearance on “Deadline: White House” on Friday, suggesting to host Nicole Wallace that Giuliani could rat on the 2024 GOP frontrunner.
“Cooperators can come from all sorts of places and usually when you’re prosecuting somebody who’s like a CEO or a boss, the issue is who had contact. Who can actually get you into the room with firsthand information,” he said with palpable glee.
“So it can really come from the top, and anywhere down to the bottom in terms of you know, sort of social status,” he continued. “I would say if I were guessing I used to not think this, but Rudy Giuliani, I’m not sure he’d be a great cooperating witness, but he is in a – just a world of hurt. He is about to be wiped out financially in the Ruby Freeman-Shaye Moss case,” Weissmann added, referring to the defamation case against “America’s Mayor” by two Fulton County, GA election workers.
“The decision by former chief judge Beryl Howell makes it plain that she believes he’s sitting on some discovery that he desperately does not want to turn over,” he added of the Obama-appointed judge’s recent summary judgment against Giuliani forcing him to pay $90,000 to the plaintiffs for failure to comply with discovery orders with a larger financial penalty yet to come in the form of “punitive” damages. “That is why he’s in the position he’s in with a summary judgment against him and only damages to be decided.”
“He is selling sort of his last known asset,” he said, referring to the former Trump attorney’s putting his Manhattan apartment up for sale. “And in Georgia, he’s facing not just sort of big picture crime but also that civil case with Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss, he’s facing the criminal side of that which has such incredible jury appeal.”
“Because it’s not just democracy writ large that’s been victimized but two people who were just doing their job,” Weissmann added. “So he — you know, and he knows, I mean he is somebody who is a former U.S. attorney, like Chris Christie, and is a rational actor. So you know it’ll be interesting to see what he does, because there’s just so much pressure on him, on the criminal and the civil side.”
Trump recently hosted a $ 100,000-a-plate dinner for Giuliani at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. to raise money for his 79-year-old ally’s legal defense.
Weissmann, who is notorious for his vicious legal tactics, was the top prosecutor on former special counsel Robert Mueller’s sweeping “witch hunt” into Trump over the Russia collusion hoax.
