The New York Times reported that Rudy Giuliani and President Donald Trump discussed a preemptive pardon, despite Giuliani not being charged with a crime. Giuliani has vehemently denied this and suggested that the New York Times has lied in their report and said it was based on an anonymous source.
Giuliani wrote in his Twitter post, “NYT lies again. Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source. Hard to keep up with all their lies.”
The article suggesting a Giuliani pardon was penned by Michael S. Schmidt and Maggie Haberman, both well known for their work with the New York Times.
Both sides are saying something different in what appears to now be a he said, she said, situation. There is no further details on this other that.
With this news breaking in regards to Giuliani and Trump, there is no indication of who may have sparked the conversation in the first place, if it indeed happened.
President Trump is in the midst of fighting the results of the election and his legal team is busy carrying that task. The president has not yet conceded and does not appear to have any intention of doing so. Trump has hinted at a run in 2024, making that a slow suggesting that he might begin to accept the results of the election if his legal team is unable to have a major impact.
