The following article, Trump Rags on Rudy After Former Lawyer Asks for Recompense, was first published on Flag And Cross.
There was a time not long ago that Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani were inseparable, both born out of the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple, and both seeking an everlasting legacy in the heart of Washington DC.
But when Joe Biden was announced as the winner of the 2020 election, Trump was livid, and he commanded Giuliani to make it right in the court system.
Rudy, accompanied by fellow Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis, traveled coast to coast, making pleas to judges in courtrooms all over this great nation, suggesting that the election had been rigged or “stolen” from Trump.

Giuliani is currently embroiled in a major legal battle against Dominion Voting Systems, who have sued Rudy and others for more than $1 billion each, claiming that their claims regarding the 2020 election amounted to defamation against the company.
