(PatrioticPost.com)- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is also President Donald Trump’s attorney, categorically denied reports from the mainstream media this week that he discussed a pardon with the president.
According to a report in the far-left New York Times on Tuesday, the former mayor discussed receiving a pardon from the president…despite there being no criminal issues that the attorney would be prosecuted for.
On Twitter, Giuliani said that the “#FakeNews NYT lies again.”
#FakeNews NYT lies again. Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source. Hard to keep up with all their lies.

“Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source,” he added. “Hard to keep up with all their lies.”
The New York Times claims that their anonymous sources – yes, more anonymous sources – were “told of the discussion” between the president and Giuliani. It means that their sources don’t have first-hand knowledge of the discussion, and cannot even be certain what they were told about is true.
Christianne Allen, a spokeswoman for Rudy Giuliani, also hit back at the claims and added that Giuliani “cannot comment on any discussions that he has with his client.”
Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, also told the New York Times that Giuliani is “not concerned” about an investigation into his business dealings in Ukraine. Since federal prosecutors in New York said that they were investigating Giuliani, little has happened. The prosecutors said in 2019 that they were looking to see if Giuliani would profit from a proposed pipeline that would take American natural gas to Ukraine.
President Donald Trump issued a pardon for former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn who falsely pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in 2017, before withdrawing his guilty plea after evidence was revealed that FBI agents were working to set him up. President Trump pardoned Flynn to avoid a possible future Biden administration reinitiating investigations to prove their already disproven Russia hoax.
Rudy Giuliani is at the center of the president’s fight to secure election integrity, filing lawsuits in battleground states across the country alleging widespread voter fraud and misconduct. On Wednesday, Giuliani appeared at an evidentiary hearing in Michigan where more witnesses provided evidence that the state’s counting process was compromised by fraud and misconduct.
While several cases have already been dismissed by Democrat-appointed judges, some cases are expected to be seen before the Supreme Court before inauguration day in January.
