Oh Rudy

He's such a card:

Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, has said he is confident the president will remain loyal to him as an impeachment inquiry unfolds in which the former New York mayor has become a central figure.

But Giuliani joked that he had good “insurance” in case Trump did turn on him, amid speculation Republicans will seek to frame him as a rogue actor.

In a telephone interview with the Guardian, in response to a question about whether he was nervous that Trump might “throw him under a bus” in the impeachment crisis, Giuliani said, with a slight laugh: “I’m not, but I do have very, very good insurance, so if he does, all my hospital bills will be paid.”

Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, who was also on the call, then interjected: “He’s joking.”

Actually, he wasn't joking. I think it's perfectly sane of him to remind his good, good friend of all the great "conversations" they've had. He tends to forget those things.

Of all Trump's accomplices, he's the one most in need of a presidential pardon if it comes to hat. He put a lot of people in federal prison. He knows he cannot go there, under any circumstances.
