Donald Trump reportedly complained that ‘none of the sane lawyers’ would take his election cases — so he settled for Rudy Giuliani, according to the forthcoming Trump book “Peril” by The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
Business Insider, which obtained a copy of the book, reported on a conversation between Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) following a press conference alleging election fraud held by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell, where what appeared to be black hair dye dripped down Giuliani’s face.
“They were just beyond bizarre,” Graham reportedly said. “And I think it took a lot of the air out of the balloon that the challenges are so unfocused, haphazard and conspirational.”
Trump admitted Giuliani was not acting competently, but said he couldn’t find a better lawyer.
“He’s crazy. He says crazy sh*t. I get it. But none of the sane lawyers can represent me because they’ve been pressured. The actual lawyers have been told they cannot represent my campaign,” Trump argued.
