“He’s crazy. He says crazy shit. I get it,” Trump is quoted as saying in the book. “But none of the sane lawyers can represent me because they’ve been pressured. The actual lawyers have been told they cannot represent my campaign.”
Trump ignored warnings about Giuliani from South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Business Insider reported, who said Giuliani’s notorious press conference last November, when black liquid trickled down his face, “accelerated the beginning of the end” for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.
