Attorney Rudy Giuliani, who represents former President Donald Trump, responded to a scathing letter from the Lincoln Project’s lawyers on Wednesday, in the most amusing way imaginable: with a letter saying he will not respond to their letter (video below).
The Lincoln Project recently sent a letter to Giuliani demanding that he “preserve all relevant documents” regarding alleged “false and defamatory statements” made against the organization. A billion-dollar lawsuit against him soon followed.
Giuliani is not happy about it and is now scrambling to come up with a strategy. During an appearance on former Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast,” Giuliani explained that he would respond to the Lincoln Project by saying he will not respond.
“Well, here’s what I’m doing—I’m writing them a letter back telling them that I will not respond to their letter because they make this one rather sketchy, defamatory allegation about a tort that I committed—I counted four that they committed in their letter,” Giuliani said.
He then inadvertently confirmed that he had already responded to the group’s attorneys in writing.
“So I wrote back to him, ‘You know son, I’ve represented Dow Jones, Barron’s, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Daily News—I did this for a living–and you’ve made a classic mistake. At the very end of the letter you claimed that I defamed the Lincoln Project, except in the first seven paragraphs of the letter you defamed me at least four or five times,” Giuliani went on.
