President Donald Trump has allegedly informed his aides to stop paying legal fees to attorney Rudy Giuliani, who was acting as the president’s personal attorney. This comes months after President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election and their legal challenges in court, to essentially flip the election results one way or another, have been dismissed numerous times by various courts. The amount of legal challenges has fallen and Trump may no longer need Giuliani’s assistance.
This comes to light as President Donald Trump begins to accept his defeat and call for peace and easing the tensions leading up to the inauguration of President-elect, Joe Biden. It was nothing less than a chaotic scene last week when Joe Biden’s electoral votes were certified, despite being disrupted by protesters and an invasion of the Capitol.
A report on The Hill quoted Sen. Lindsey Graham, who weighed in on Trump, as saying “the president has come to grips with it’s over… That’s tough. He thinks he was cheated, but nothing’s going to change that.” Trump and his legal team presented numerous legal challenges across the country and was widely unsuccessful, even at the Supreme Court level despite installing three judges during his time as president.
It’s unclear how much Giuliani’s legal fees were, but the rumor going around social media is $20,000 per day. However, that amount has not been officially confirmed.
One of Trump’s former personal lawyers, Michael Cohen, responded on Twitter and accused Trump of not paying his legal fees either. Cohen stated, “So #Rudy…now @POTUS is refusing to pay your legal bills as he’s has mine. #SueHisA-s“
