A sexual assault lawsuit against Rudy Giuliani by a former high-ranking employee accuses him of selling a $2 million presidential pardon and sharing the money with Donald Trump.
Noelle Dunphy, Rudy Giuliani’s former director of business development, is describing a pattern of horrific sexual abuse in a new lawsuit. (Warning: If you’re going to read the lawsuit, it contains details of alleged sexual assault.)
The lawsuit paints a picture of Giuliani who is an alleged predator of women and also a corrupt functioning alcoholic.
As part of Giuliani’s alleged corruption, Dunphy accuses him of selling a presidential pardon and sharing the money with Donald Trump.
From page 25 of the lawsuit:
Around February 16, 2019, they graded Giuliani’s emails as Ukrainian government civil servants, And again discussed the desirability by Register below FARA. Mrs. Dunphy offered to complete the registration for him. Giuliani told her he could broke the laws because he said, “I have immunity.”
He also asked Mrs. Dunphy if she knew anyone in need of a pardon, and told her so he was selling grace for $2 million, which he and President Trump would split. He told Mrs. Dunphy that she can refer those seeking pardon to him, as long as they don’t go through “the normal channels” of the Office of the Pardon Attorney, because correspondence going to that office would be subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.
The idea of selling pardons was mooted during Trump’s tenure, and how Dunphy describes the process fits Trump’s usual practice.
Donald Trump would never sell the pardon himself, and he would have someone else sell the pardon so he could deny it and blame someone if it got out. If things went bad, Trump would take his share of the backend and set Giuliani up as a cheater.
The claim that Trump and Giuliani sold pardons is worth investigating.
With Trump campaigning for the White House again, the American people deserve to know the truth.
Just because of the sexual abuse, Rudy Giuliani, if proven true, should go to prison. If they were to sell a pardon, it would illustrate that there is no crime against America that Donald Trump will not commit.
